For me nothing quite beats Jo Malone, especially at the holidays. The minimalistic (yet uber chic) boxes and packaging and the unique fragrances get me every time; and this year is no different. When a package arrived sporting those lovely ivory & black boxes all tied up with red bows I could hardly contain my excitement.
Wood Sage & Sea Salt has been on my wish list since it first started popping up in the press towards the end of summer. I actually attempted to buy it a few times in September, only to find it was sold out each time. So when it arrived at my doorstep wrapped up all nicely, it was definitely as though Christmas came early. The fragrance is inspired by the British beaches - boasting scents of salt air, rugged English coast lines, and driftwood. (I have actually spent time on British beaches, and it does bring back memories of the Northern English coastline.)
The Christmas Cracker is probably one of the cutest beauty items I've seen for the holidays. Wrapped up in a traditional Christmas cracker box, the wrapping is just as fun as what's inside. The three items included are the Nectarine Blossom & Honey Body Créme, the Lime Basil & Mandarine Cologne, and the Blackberry & Bay Body and Hand Wash. These three allow you to test some of Jo Malone's favorited scents and in different formulas. It is the perfect little stocking stuffer.
