How does Scent Pairing™ work?
Scent Pairing™ was originally born from the idea that fragrance can be tailored to embrace a mood or occasion, or simply to express your individuality. Whether it’s freshening up a floral with a citrus zing or adding spice for an alluring warmth, you can adjust your fragrance combination to suit your mood, style or the season, knowing that whatever you choose will be unique. Each Jo Malone London fragrance has been designed to be worn alone or combined with other fragrances, layering scents and textures to create a fragrance that is bespoke and personal to you. For example Lime Basil & Mandarin brings a citrus burst and daring herbal dash to other Jo Malone London fragrances. Try it with Grapefruit, which adds an extra splash of uplifting brightness or Pomegranate Noir to enrich it with sensual depth.
To find your perfect Scent Pairing™, you should start by looking at the different fragrance families. You may find you are drawn to citrus, spicy, fruity or floral. You will have an emotional and sensory connection with a particular genre of scent. From there you can play to lift or to deepen fragrance, to spice or to complicate, to simplify or to add mystery, and create something special to you. Layering different textures of a fragrance is the best way to create depth and to enhance the longevity on the skin. Try beginning your layering ritual with an energising body & hand wash from our citrus family then pamper yourself by applying an indulgent body crème finished with a spritz of your cologne.
Emma’s top tips:
- Pulse points, being the warmest part of the body, are the traditional areas to wear fragrance. These areas emanate scent really well but a combination of pulse points with clothing or even a mist in your hair will hold all day and awaken with movement.
- An elegant and creative way to wear fragrance is with one scent worn on the front and a different scent misted down your back. All Jo Malone London fragrances are designed to layer seamlessly with one another and this way you can experience three different effects throughout the day. For example you might want the playful scent of English Pear & Freesia to announce your arrival in to a room whilst a more sensual train of Pomegranate Noir will linger as you leave. At other times the two entwine, conjuring a fruity, fresh & playful combination.
