If there’s one thing we’d queue in the street for, it’s Jo Malone.
Even in the current uncomfortably sticky but inconveniently wet weather conditions, we’d still be sorely tempted if it meant that we could get our hands on the newest release first.
But with the newest Jo Malone drop, there’s now a way you can get your hands on it three weeks earlier than it releases in stores. No umbrellas required.
The classic perfume house is releasing their newest fragrance three weeks early in department store Harrods.
The luxury retailer will be exclusively selling Jo Malone’s winter ‘Magic & Mayhem collection from next week, three weeks before it’s officially available in Jo Malone boutiques.
Early release will include the star of this year’s Christmas collection, brand new fragrance Rose & Magnolia.
Blended with warm amber and patchouli, the new cologne, which will set you back £104, uses magnolia and two different types of rose to create a sensuous floral scent.
And it comes in a gorgeous night sky themed bottle that swaps the brand’s classic black and cream design for a chic navy and gold.
Also included in the Harrods early release will be the winter-themed Pine & Eucalyptus Luxury Candle.
The beautiful scent will come in a gorgeous cream and gold jar to add a touch of elegance to any room.
Coming in at an eye-watering £300, this isn’t the cheapest candle out there, but we think it’s definitely worth it for the fresh winter smell.
Another addition will be the Luxury Cologne Collection.
Due to be exclusively available in just Harrods for the duration of the festive period, the sleek gift box will contain 25 different classic Jo Malone scents that can be worn separately for when you need a little midday refresh, or layered together to come up with a whole new personal scent.
Coming in at £370, this might be one to save for when the other half forgets to tick you off his Christmas list.
Apologetic Jo Malone parcel anyone?
The Magic & Mayhem offerings will be available in Harrods from 1st October, before the entire collection launches in Jo Malone boutiques on 21st October.
Watch this space for updates on what you can expect from the rest of the line! Rumour has it there’s a scent of winter citrus in the air…
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...).
