Joe Malone

My new found love is Joe Malone fragrance.  Joe Malone is a British based company founded in 1994..... they sell an assortment of candles, perfume, lotions, room diffusers etc.  They divide their fragrances into 6 different categories: woody, light floral, floral spicy, citrus and fruity.  What's so great about this line is that you can mix and blend different lotions with different perfumes.  I've had my eye on Joe Malone for awhile but couldn't decide on which scent I liked best.   Yesterday I broke down and bought the Peony & Blush Suede body cream and the Grapefruit cologne.  I also went home with samples of Pomegranate Noir body cream, English Pear & Freesia cologne, Blackberry cologne and Orange Blossom body and hand wash.  They all smell so delicious that I won't be able to decide which to wear!!! 

"An understated style. Defined by an unconventional sense of sophistication. With taste that is rarified, yet a tough audacious. Timeless and elegant but always infused with charming dash of wit and whimsy".

Joe Malone, London 

Ps. You can buy Joe Malone at many locations. I bought mine at Blue Mercury at the Galleria in Edina, Minnesota. Nordstroms, Saks Fifth Avenue & Joe Malone
