Special Dish: Jo to the World!

The scents have come! There’s nothing we’re more excited about celebrating this holiday season than the long-awaited arrival of Jo Malone in Hong Kong. The much-loved British lifestyle collection for the bath, body and home is finally here to make our spirits lighter and parties brighter, with a new Times Square counter opening just in time for the holidays! Cast all of your previous notions about fragrance aside and prepare to discover a unique sensory experience in The World of Jo Malone™, where unexpected combinations are essential, scents are used with abandon, and playful creativity promises to inspire. With a special programme of treatments and services available for Dim Sum & Then Some readers, a new feature that allows us to create custom tailor-made scents, and unique gift ideas for everyone on the list, we’ll all soon be singing…Jo to the World!

Jo Malone opened its first Hong Kong counter this summer at Lane Crawford ifc mall, now appropriately renamed “Scentral.” But this month, the place to be is Times Square where a highly anticipated, brand new Jo Malone counter has just opened in Lane Crawford. Modelled after the famous Jo Malone Flagship Store at Sloane Street in London, the space invokes both luxury and serenity. It will feature the full collection of Jo Malone’s colognes in a range of 19 different scents with bath oils, body lotions, body crèmes and shower gels, plus, a Tasting Bar™ where you can choose from a seasonal menu of delicious fragrance combinations. As your chosen scented body crème or lotion is whipped or folded to perfection, roll up your sleeves for a sensory hand and arm massage that will leave you feeling pampered, beautifully scented and completely inspired. For those for whom only a bespoke fragrance will do, you can work with a Jo Malone Stylist using the Art of Fragrance Combining™ to create the perfect customized scent just for you.

There is no better holiday gift than luxuriously scented Jo Malone candles, bath oils or crèmes. Your friends’ eyes will widen as soon as they see the iconic cream-coloured box tied with a grosgrain ribbon and they will only be more enchanted once they see what’s inside! Going to visit the family for Christmas? The Pine & Eucalyptus Collection, a limited edition in which the crisp aroma of pine is entwined with velvety eucalyptus, wraps up all your holiday memories into one heartwarming scent and is the ultimate gift for the home (Home Candle (200g), HK$595). Have a friend who prefers to spend the night floating than flirting? The Bath Oil Collection is the perfect present, beautifully presented in glass decanters featuring six distinct scents including Amber & Lavender, Grapefruit, Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir, White Jasmine & Mint and Orange Blossom (Bath Oil (6 x 30ml) HK$715). Know a girl (or guy!) who’s always on the go? Help her to take a blissful reminder of home wherever she goes with the Candle Collection in 3. Choose from one of four luxurious sets of 3 Jo Malone travel size candles in a deluxe gift box, which combine to release a deeply entrancing scent. We love the Basil & Cassis, Basil & Gingerlily, and Basil & Verbena and the Orange Blossom, Wild Fig & Cassis, and Lime Blossom (Candle Collection (3 x 60g) HK$870).

Get your group together for a holiday gathering that’s scent-sational! To celebrate the opening of the Jo Malone counter at Lane Crawford Times Square and the coming festive season, Dim Sum & Then Some members and their friends are specially invited to experience The World of Jo Malone™ with complimentary treatments and services. Groups of up to four people can book in for Complimentary Hand & Arm Massages using a deliciously scented body lotion or body crème of your choice and finished with a spritz of cologne. After the massage, work with a Jo Malone Stylist to create a bespoke signature scent through Jo Malone Fragrance Combining™ and design a signature fragrance that only you and your friends will have the privilege of wearing. Everyone else will be so jealous! After this, you will receive a Scent Surround™ Consultation to learn how to scent your environment, meaning turn your home into an enveloping cocoon of warmth and wonder this winter. Lastly, Jo Malone’s Gift Concierge™ service can help you choose the perfect luxurious gifts for everyone from your impossible to shop for mother-in-law to those oh-so-lucky friends who have it all. This “Best Friends’ Gathering” is exclusively available at the Jo Malone counter at Lane Crawford Times Square until 30 November 2008 and is especially for Dim Sum & Then Some readers and friends. Please contact the Jo Malone Stylists at 2118 6182 to book your appointment (maximum 4 persons per appointment, advance booking required). The next time we all get together, we’ll intoxicate, invoke the utmost admiration and invite the attention of the entire room, with our new, luscious scents!

Jo to the world, the scents have come! And heaven and nature sing…and we’ll all be glowing, sumptuously smelling things!
