JO MALONE | A TRIP TO THE ENGLISH FIELDS



Back in February I was very lucky to be invited along to an afternoon at Jo Malone by the lovely Katie Kirk to check out their new limited edition English Fields collection. When we arrived we were greeted with drinks of our choice, a lovely glass of grapefruit and Prosecco or a fruit juice, and some rather tasty fruit flapjacks and chocolate corn cobs which were made by the Wild Mint Café which were to die for. Who doesn't love a glass of Prosecco and sweet treats? I know I can't say no.


SO WHAT DID WE GET UP TOO?

We all gathered around to be introduced to the scents themselves, this is where we were introduced to all 5 new colognes and about all the notes in each of them which helped us decide which one we thought would suit us individually. I went for Primrose and Rye and have included the description Jo Malone have written below. It was a really great talk and I felt I learnt; not only about the new colognes but also about Jo Malone as the brand, I was left feeling like the company always put their customers first and care what they'd want from the brand.

After the talk we went our own ways to either experience the complimentary Jo Malone hand and arm massage; which if you don't know is offered to all customers to help discover maybe a new fragrance and even maybe a combination of any of their current favourite scents. Or treated by Bobbi Brown to learn about tips and tricks when applying makeup or even to try a new look, I asked if I could be shown a better way to contour as I do try every day but find it's never just right; It's not the chiselled cheek bones, full on glow look I so desperately want to learn to achieve.
More gorgeous food was brought out for us which we all swiftly devoured and we finished off with a gift wrapping class as we were kindly gifted a few goodies in our own personalised gift boxes and ceramic tags with our initials on - INCREDIBLE.






Primrose & Rye Cologne

Rolling fields dotted with primroses. Swaying softly on a spring breeze. Warmed by golden corn. Brightened with mimosa. On an addictive base of rye and vanilla. Filled with sunshine. Vivid. Glowing. Addictive.




THE COMBINATION OF MY CHOICE

I knew for my combination I wanted to include one of the colognes from the cologne intense range as I love Primrose and Rye but I needed to add something a bit more beefy to it. I love a strong scent and knowing how much I love Tuberose it was a no brainer for which one I went for. Once applied the lovely lady who did my service commented how well they really went together and we were both quite shocked but so pleased. I could not stop smelling myself and thankfully my cardigan has retained the smell pretty well.


FINAL NOTES ON ENGLISH FIELDS

These colognes aren't going to be around for long and once sold out thats it so I really recommend if you can get to your nearest store to do so even if it is just for a cheeky whiff of them and to try your own combination. They are super dreamy and well worth checking out.
