Jo Malone London White Moss & Snowdrop Scent Pairing Collection
Trust Jo Malone London to come up with the perfect luxe Christmas gifts. From the merry Orange Bitters collection, to a need-it-now Advent Calendar, Jo Malone has you covered for Home and Personal fragrance gift ideas. Jo Malone London is known for her exquisite layering, and we love (love, love), the White Moss & Snowdrop Scent Pairing Collection (RRP $170), featuring a White Moss & Snowdrop Cologne 30ml and three 9ml Colognes in English Pear & Freesia, Blackberry & Bay and Myrrh & Tonka, which make it so simple to try different layering options. The powdery softness of Winter snow meeting moss imagined in the White Moss & Snowdrop Cologne pairs with the English Pear & Freesia for a fresh, crisp scent, with Blackberry & Bay for a bright, juicy scent, and with Myrrh & Tonka for a smooth, woody aroma. If you (or your giftee) prefer a single scent, we love the Christmassy Starlit Mandarin & Honey Cologne (100ml RRP $218), where vibrant mandarin notes are sweetened with honey and wrapped in the powdery warmth of coumarin, for a soft, velvety warmth.
