One of the things on my wish list has been a signature perfume and where better but to tailor my fragrance to suit me, my lifestyle and my skin but Jo Malone. Which is something that I’ve always wanted to do. It maybe a little pricey but the whole experience of finding out about layering fragrances and trying them out on your skin was something you don’t get in every store.

My jewellery was removed and placed into a small complimentary Jo Malone bag, whilst my skin was washed to remove any existing fragrances and then body lotion with one fragrance smoothed over one arm and an eau de parfum added on top, whilst to the other arm the just my two chosen fragrances were applied. The chosen fragrances were written on a card for me and I was encouraged to wear the fragrance all day to see what I thought and there was no pressure to purchase there and then. So obviously I went back and purchased later – £38 for red rose hand and body lotion and £95 for special edition eau de parfum.

I love it and it will become my signature fragrance, so whenever my friends smell rose, they will think it is me!
