Do you have a certain luxury product that’s always on your birthday list? Maybe it’s your favourite perfume, or a specific face cream? For me it’s Jo Malone Bath Oil. My love affair with Jo Malone started around fifteen years ago with the amazing (now discontinued) Honeysuckle & Jasmine Bath Oil, if only the’d bring it back! Since then I’ve ventured onto different floral and citrusy flavours but I always seem to come back to the classic that is Lime Basil & Mandarin.
I call it ‘the classic’ because it’s the Jo Malone signature fragrance. The peppery basil and aromatic white thyme is said to “bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze”. How gorgeous and poetic is that? For me the heady aroma is as relaxing (well I am in the bath) as it is invigorating – as it fills the air and scents my skin.
A ‘Jo Malone bath’ is a truly luxurious treat. Each bottle of Bath Oil is enriched with sweet almond, jojoba seed and avocado oils that act as natural conditioners to soothe and hydrate your skin. You can literally lie back and let the oil and water work together to nourish and fragrance your body. Honestly, life doesn’t get much better than that – especially if you also have a few Jo Malone candles burning on the windowsill next to you. Bliss!
