New Spring Products from Jo Malone

Luxury fragrance and body care company Jo Malone has released some fab new products for spring. So go ahead and indulge!

Just launched February 1st is the Jo Malone Vitamin E Body Balm ($75.00)  The Jo Malone Vitamin E skin care collection launched over 20 years ago with the cult favorite, Vitamin E Gel, and has expanded into a collection that includes a Lip Conditioner, Nourishing Hand Treatment and Body Treatment Scrub. The Vitamin E Body Balm is a rich, concentrated cream that deeply conditions the skin with beneficial antioxidants which help fortify the skin against the damaging effects of the environment. Shea butter, cocoa butter and wheat protein all provide natural barrier repair while coconut oil brings even more powerful moisturizing benefits. I love this balm because it is so rich and thick, but after I smooth it on (even my hands) I don’t feel greasy at all. And my skin is very soft and it smells great too!  

Last fall I reviewed Jo Malone’s Vanilla & Anise cologne. I love this spicy, but fresh fragrance. Starting March 1st, Jo Malone has introduced more products in the Vanilla and Anise line– A Home Candle ($65.00 USD), Bath Oil ($60.00 USD) and Body Crème ($75.00 USD).  This scent is inspired by the floral valleys of Madagascar, blending notes of bergamot, neroli and star anise, vanilla orchid, frangipani, vetiver, white amber and a hint of clove. I have tried the bath oil and I love it. It foams just a little and imparts and rich fragrance while I’m bathing. It also moisturizes my skin without leaving a greasy feeling!

Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne

Jo Malone launched a brand new cologne on September 1st, 2009 called Vanilla & Anise ($55.00 1 oz, $100.00 3.4 oz). This is described as “a spicy scent inspired by the floral valleys and exotic spices of Madagascar. Vanilla & Anise’s top notes include star anise and wild fennel flower, the full floral heart contains delicate vanilla orchid and fragrant oleander and the base includes the precious, rare vanilla bourbon absolute and Madagascar clove.” The notes are:
Top Notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Tunisian Neroli, W ild Fennel Flower, Star Anise
Middle Notes: Oleander, Tuberose, Frangipani, Purple Vanilla Orchid
Base Notes: Madagascar Clove, White Amber, Vetiver Bourbon, Vanilla Bourbon Absolute, Tonka
I LOVE this scent. Just hearing the description, I though it might be too strong a frangrance for me. But it is so soft and cozy, and not too spicy. The Bergamot and floral notes cut any strong scent that this might have. My only complaint is that it is so subtle and doesn’t last long enough. I have to reapply it often.
Jo Malone has a philosophy of Fragrance Combining™, which is that by blending two scents together, you will become the creator of your own signature scent. They suggest to create a refreshing scent, combine with Grapefruit Cologne, which has notes of mandarin and grapefruit.   If you would like a more feminine scent, combine with Orange Blossom Cologne, with notes of water lily, lilac and orange flower petals. To create a sultry scent, combine with Vetyver Cologne, which has notes of white amber and vanilla bourbon.  
You can find Vanilla Anise and other Jo Malone fragrances at Jo Malone Shops,, Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide. Available exclusively at Holt Renfrew in Canada.
