Prepare to enter the ancient and magical Hanging Gardens with Jo Malone London’s latest fragrance collection
This fall, Jo Malone London invites us to enter the ancient Hanging Gardens with its latest fragrance collection, Lost Wonder and Prestige had the opportunity to attend the Global Press Virtual Event, led by Jo Malone’s Global Education Vice President, Chris Wyatt. The beloved British perfume brand knows more than just a thing or two about creating a well-crafted scent that can intrigue our body and soul. The Hanging Gardens, the inspiration for this latest collection did just that for Jo Malone’s Head of Global Fragrance Celine Roux when she visited an exhibition about ancient fabled gardens throughout history at the British Museum back in 2016.
The Hanging Gardens, in particular, stood out for her, with its back story about a gallant king who created a lush landscape of greenery, fruit trees and streams as an ode for his beloved queen. It is said that the garden was flush with water-splashed flowers and rope fruits, trailing vines and statuesque trees. Really a wonder to behold.
This mesmerizing story has now been successfully captured and interpreted in the two scents of the Lost In Wonder collection, namely Fig & Lotus Flower along with Cypress & Grapevine.
Fig & Lotus is a luscious and graceful light floral Cologne with soft aquatic notes of lotus flowers that then unfurl into sweet, juicy plum figs. Then there is Cypress & Grapevine, an aromatic and evergreen Cologne Intense. Hinted by its dark colored bottle, the fragrance depicts a moodier but rich scent with the help of fresh cypress and woody notes of trailing grapevines, which is then grounded with depths of amber for a bold and compelling effect.
Like any other of Jo Malone London fragrances, these two can be paired with each other or with those from other collections to create the ultimate personalized scent. “One recommended combination is Cypress & Grapevine with Wood Sage & Sea Salt for an enlivening, woody paring. Meanwhile, Fig & Lotus Flower with Cypress & Grapevine creates a modern, invigorating combination. And for a fresh and luscious feeling, try Fig & Lotus Flower together with Wood Sage & Sea Salt,” said Chris Wyatt in closing.
Lost in Wonder is available at Jo Malone London boutiques in Plaza Indonesia, Galeries Lafayette Jakarta, Beachwalk Bali and home delivery service through Galeries Lafayette Personalized Shopper 0812-9301-5515.
