Christmas is well on its way, which means that all of our favourite brands are coming out with their top of the range offerings for the festive season.
And none is more hotly anticipated than the heavenly fragrance house that is Jo Malone.
With each and every scent that they deliver, the London-based brand seems to knock it out the park – despite the often somewhat unorthodox blends.
Wood sage and sea salt never particularly sounded like something that should work, but it ended up turning into a cult classic that we inhale by the bottle.
And now the iconic brand has done it again – this time with their newly-launched Christmas collection.
The retailer’s Magic & Mayhem Christmas collection contains four luxurious scents (including one brand new offering that was available early) as well as a whole load of deluxe festive goodies.
As part of this season’s collection, the brand is introducing their Rose & Magnolia fragrance that blends magnolia with two different types of rose scent, sensuous patchouli and warm amber to give you a dark floral for the festive season.
If you prefer to go for classic Christmas scents, the collection also includes the Pine & Eucalyptus and Orange Bitters scents, which have both been extended to offer new products.
The aromatic winter smell of Pine & Eucalyptus will be available in both a Luxury Candle (£300) and a Diffuser (£64), while the warm citrus of the Orange Bitters is now being offered in two different candle forms – Deluxe (£120) and Travel (£23).
Or if you love to go for signature Jo Malone, the collection also includes a brand new Decorative Cologne (£104) edition of their classic Pomegranate Noir fragrance.
As for the luxurious Christmas goodies, the collection includes a range of Giant Luxury Christmas Crackers (from £210), a gorgeous Decorated Candle Collection (£170) and a decadent Advent Calendar (£320) full of festive Jo Malone favourites.
If you were hoping for the brand’s iconic black and cream packaging you may be disappointed – but only until you see that they’ve taken things up to a whole new level of chic.
The whole collection is designed around an enchanting navy and gold colour theme, with a few touches of elegant cream added to the Orange Bitters and Pine & Eucalyptus products and an iridescent turquoise thrown in here and there.
The whole collection is available nationwide and on the brand’s website from today.
We’ll be sending out a mass Whatsapp message to make sure there are a few of these waiting under our trees…
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
