Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and it brought to mind a news item I saw last week saying some flowers were in short supply thanks to you-know-what, and that a bunch or roses that cost $150 for Valentine’s Day last year were costing $250 this year. It got me thinking, that is a lot of money for something that will only last a week – and if I’m spending that amount of money, I’d really like something that lasts a bit longer.

 

This Valentine’s Day Jo Malone London is celebrating the Rose, with a luxe limited-edition collection of scents, from light and fresh to deep and voluptuous, showcasing this iconic fragrance note. Four distinctive scents in the collection offer a different interpretation of this classic flower, decorated in special limited-edition glass designs. Choose from my favourite, Red Roses, a romantic scent inspired by a blend of seven of the world’s most exquisite roses. With crushed violet leaves and a hint of lemon, it unfolds like a bouquet of freshly cut flowers. Available in a decorated 30ml (RRP $109) and 100ml Cologne (RRP $218), Home Candle (RRP $100) and Diffuser (RRP $137). Or for those who like a more decadent, scent, the Velvet Rose & Oud with its rich texture of Damask Rose, wrapped with smoky oud wood, and finished with clove and delicious praline. Available in a decorated 50ml Cologne Intense (RRP $184) and Home Candle (RRP $127). For lovers of sensual scents, the Rose & Magnolia is an enchanting scent with a mysterious character. Light-hearted magnolia and a duet of roses open the scent, which then deepens into a decadent heart of sweet Rose de Mai, warmed by the spicy opulence of Rose Damascena, and sensuous patchouli with warm amber. Available in a decorated 50ml Cologne (RRP $150). Rounding out the collection is the Rose Blush, a light-hearted, fresh rose scent. Sparkling basil and a fruity note of lychee add a distinctly modern twist to this stunning floral scent, cocooned in the comforting embrace of white musk. Available in a decorated 50ml Cologne (RRP $150). This Valentine’s Day, or heading into Winter, spoil yourself or someone you love with a gift that lasts all year. Available at selected Myer & David Jones locations and online, the Jo Malone London Woollahra Boutique, and via jomalone.com.au.
