Jo Malone London's New Home collection makes quite the stylish statement with help from British designer Marthe Armitage.
Jo Malone London’s latest offerings include the Black Cedarwood & Juniper scent ($65–125).
Blends of succulent fruits and fresh herbs are as synonymous with Jo Malone London as its cream-colored boxes. But the brand is shaking things up with its new limited-edition collection Summer Afternoon, which brings a blossoming garden on a warm English day to life through hand-printed designs by British artist Marthe Armitage.
“When creating the artwork,” says Armitage, “I thought about the ingredients found in Jo Malone London fragrances and decided to focus on those that would lend themselves to a beautiful, lively design.”
Featuring some of the brand’s classic fusions, like Lime Basil & Mandarin and Red Roses, the set consists of drawer liners, beautifully wrapped soaps, bath oil imbued with Nectarine Blossom & Honey, and a home candle with sprightly notes of green tomato leaf.
Armitage, who considers plants a “vital source” of her designs, adorned the packaging with cute foxes and ducks, a beekeeper and gardener, and a game of croquet. She also favored ingredients found in the fragrance house’s blends (think fig and blackcurrant).
Washingtonians can find the charming collection at the newly opened CityCenterDC boutique, where we’d also suggest checking out the ultra-alluring Black Cedarwood & Juniper scent, back by popular demand after a limited release two years ago. Happy spritzing! CityCenterDC
