You know how US Weekly does a feature called “What’s in Your Bag?” where celebrities show all of the odds and ends floating around their designer bags?
This is something like that except not at all like that. Because the bag in question is the bag I’m taking to the hospital. For starters, it’s a beat-up, well-traveled half-suitcase (it looks like this).
Laden with Christmas dinero and waiting for friends to arrive for lunch, I made the mistake of going into the Jo Malone shop at Grand Central.
The weird part? I don’t wear a lot of fragrance. I’m more likely to complain about the pervasiveness of someone’s cologne or perfume than to wear it myself.
But I do love Jo Malone. I went in thinking I’d just browse the new offerings, but instead I left the store having purchased Blackberry and Bay body creme.
I love the almost woodsy fragrance and the heavy creme is great for winter skin.
Jo Malone body creme pricey but the contents of this hefty jar will last a long time and unlike liquid cologne, won’t ‘turn’ over time. I’ll be enjoy this new purchase for two years at least based on past purchases of Gardenia, and Nectarine and Honey Blossom.
Also, when you make a purchase, Jo Malone is very generous with samples. I keep the little vials in my travel toiletry bag for use during trips.
