Last week I attended a fun event at Blo Blow Dry Bar in Porter Ranch, where the guests were treated to a Jo Malone trunk show while sipping on drinks & light snacks. Representatives from Jo Malone were there to educate us on their fragrances.
When I had heard about this free community event, I immediately RSVP’d! You see I’ve been a big fan of Jo Malone for years. There’s a Nordstrom near my home & whenever I am in the store, I would stop at the Jo Malone counter & spritz a little grapefruit cologne on my wrists. I just love the clean, crisp smell of citrus.
Usually I don’t wear a lot of perfume, especially heavy ones because I developed a sensitivity in college where I would get headaches or start to sneeze whenever I used them. However I am able to wear scented lotions without any issues, depending on the fragrance. Fortunately for me, I don’t have that reaction with ANY of the Jo Malone products – yay!
What I learned at the Jo Malone trunk show is that you can layer different fragrances to create your own signature scent. I personally loved the grapefruit combined with orange blossom. The combination of these two colognes creates a light fragrance of citrus & floral scents.
Jo Malone has a nice collection of colognes, body washes, lotions, crèmes, bath oils and candles in various scents.
After consulting with the fragrance gurus & trying on several products, I decided to make my purchase. Angela from Bloomingdale’s Sherman Oaks was on hand to take orders & I even got a special parting gift!
