Jo Malone | English fields

There’s nothing quite as exciting as when a beauty brand release limited editions. It’s even more exciting when brands bring out packaging that looks completely different to their normal collections. 

Jo Malone have done just that. The English fields collection is a beautiful collection of pastel toned bottles with a mix of matte and sheen textures. This is definitely a fragrance that you would want on your dressing table. 


I was lucky enough to attend a Jo Malone event in Chichester, and to try the English Fields collection. With 5 fragrances to choose from there is something for everyone. Although these scents are aimed for spring I can definitely see these being perfect for summer too!

The 5 limited edition fragrances are all linked to the kind of blooms that you would find in a typical English field.

To start with Honey and Crocus, this cologne is a rich and comforting scent with honey, crocus and English lavender, which is also blended with almond milk. Poppy and barley is a lovely bright scent with a hint of blackcurrant added in to give it a fruity feel, which is combined with white musk. Oat and Cornflower - this cologne is most definitely my favourite bottle( the blue and grey one in the aboe picture). With added hazelnut and vetiver to create a warm and sensual scent. Green wheat and meadowsweet - this is quite a fresh scent with grapefruit added to give the cologne its fresh scent. Primrose and rye, with vanilla as a base and mimosa added in, it crates a lovely bright and warm scent.

Out of the 5 the primrose and rye was my favourite, it reminded me of summer holidays and jetting off on a plane and I just fell in love with it. With my favourite fragrance picked it was over to the hand and arm massage stand. Jo Malone offer complimentary hand and arm massages, so if you’ve ever got a spare 5/10 minutes I would 100% go and get one. It’s great to learn about layering and how to use the products. For my hand and arm massage, I had the Nectarine Blossom and Honey body crème. Layered with the Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne and followed with the Primrose and Rye Cologne. The arm massage was amazing as usual. And the combination and layering of scent was lovely. 


I also learnt that spraying the back of your neck helps to gives burst of fragrance through out the day. I’ve started doing this and I have definitely noticed a difference, also spraying fragrance to the chest and (front) neck area can speed up aging, which, I’m not down for at the moment. If you get the chance to pop in store you definitely need to give these limited edition scents a go! 



We also had got the chance to tie Jo Malone bows to our beautiful gift boxes, which also had a ceramic tag, with our initials stamped on. 



Massive thanks to Jo Malone Chichester for hosting and as always making an event super fun and to the Wild Mint Cafe for the beautiful snacks, and also to Katie who helped to organise an amazing event!
