Jo Malone London Cologne Intense Body Cream


We remember when Jo Malone started in a little tiny Walton Street shop (in fact, our Jo remembers the founder of this company unpacking boxes excitedly before the doors opened). Well baby, look at it now: one of the world's leading fragrance brands, with legions of fans around the globe – and new products constantly exciting us, notably Jo Malone London's most luxurious bodycare treat yet.

Maybe you've tried their lotions. But this takes scented skin pampering to a new level, offering 24-hour moisturisation in a luscious body cream that delivers immediate radiance, too. Key ingredient? A samphire extract, we're told: mineral-rich, and harvested from salt marshes where it's able to withstand harsh, drying winds.

The cream showcases four fragrances from the Cologne Intense collection, offering a rich concentration of scented oils within the mix – so it really does scent skin for ages, too. Choose from green-edged white floral Tuberose Angelica, smoothly warm Dark Amber & Ginger Lily, exotically woody Oud & Bergamot, or Jo's absolute favourite from the whole Jo Malone London collection, sumptuously sensual Velvet Rose & Oud.

This is true pampering – albeit, probably, at a birthday/Christmas present price.
