Last Wednesday I dragged my friend down to Holt Renfrew's 'wine & cheese' party. I had gone to the previous one and I found it to be fun. Her daughter, a stylista in the making also joined us, and so did a co-worker. Wine, wine spritzers and other cocktails were plenty available, and so were various appetizers. I chose plain old water... Anyway, the main reason we went there for was to check out the fashion on super-duper sale (70% off), but not before stopping by the Jo Malone counter, a must for me.
In the past few years, I found I have become more and more allergic to all kinds of fragrances, but I found Jo Malone was one of the very few lines I can use with no problems. At first, I used Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne for a couple of years, but lately I settled on the Orange Blossom Cologne in the same line. I find it fresh, light, and everyone asks what I'm wearing.
This fragrance comes in 2 sizes, 30 ml (1 fl. oz.) and 100 ml (3.4 fl. oz). I find the smaller size is perfect for travel on business trips when I don't have the time to check my luggage in.
From the same line, I use the Orange Blossom Body Lotion, which is light and gets absorbs by the skin almost immediately, while its smell lingers for hours. The lotion comes in a 175 ml (5.9 fl. oz.) bottle with a pump. In the winter time, I also use the body cream. The cream comes in a 250 ml (8.5 fl. oz.) heavy glass jar.
Do you use any Jo Malone products? Which one is your favourite? What fragrance you absolutely cannot do without?
