This is an impromptu post. I'm squeezing this in between my normal scheduled posts because I just had to tell you how much fun I had at the Jo Malone Tangs counter yesterday evening.
I had a play date with Miaka's Life and Loves yesterday, we both talked about Jo Malone and said that we wanted to get a candle from Jo Malone to try. So we met up yesterday evening for shopping and dinner.
Incidentally I received a personalised note from them two days inviting me for a hand and arm massage. What a great way to kill two birds with one stone! I made appointments for the both of us.
I do love the Jo Malone corner at Tangs. It is very cozy and classy.
Lovely Wynn sat us down at the counter and we were offered water and biscuits.
Before this, Wynn asked us to pick out two scents we would like to try. I have to tell you how hard it was to decide on only two scents. She asked us which scents we already owned so that she could also suggest how we could pair what we already have and what we want to try. I was torn between Earl Grey & Cucumber, Pomegranate Noir and Grapefruit. I finally decided on Pomegranate Noir and Grapefruit.

First of, Wynn wiped down my arm with a Lime Basil & Madarin scented hot towel followed by a washing with a shower gel, I cannot remember which one though. She layered the scents differently on each arm to show me how the scents changed when the order was switched. It was kinda cool. On one arm I had Pomegranate Noir Body Creme massaged onto my arm then Grapefruit cologne sprayed and patted on my arm. On the other arm, it was Grapefruit Body Lotion (so I could see the difference between the body lotion and creme) and Pomegranate Noir cologne sprayed and patted on my arm. The one with Grapefruit on top had a more citrusy note whereas when Pomegranate Noir was on top, the scent was sweeter. I seriously couldn't help taking turns to sniffing both my hands.
We ended of with a fragrance shower. Here Miaka's Life and Loves is getting a recommendation of how she could layer her favourite scents and with her new buys.
Wynn I'm ready for my fragrance shower!
I was honestly quite alarmed by the liberal way she spritzed me. I normally only use one spritz per scent. I was reassured that it wasn't over the top. Anyway when we went out for dinner I didn't see anyone scrunching their noses when we walked past so it must be a good sign. I did learn that I could actually spritz my hair. I can also spritz warmer scents near my knee area when I'm wearing a dress or skirt. The scent will waft up and become lighter.
You know what, we originally just wanted to get a candle each, but we took home more than that. There were new limited edition candle scents available and I decided to take home a LE scent instead of the regular line up.
Here is the beautiful and delightful Wynn. Thank you my dear for making our evening such an enjoyable one and answering our endless questions. We learned new ways to use our scents. This is what I got for myself.
As I write this post, I have my Green Tomato Leaf candle lighted up. It fills up the whole living room and I can smell it very clearly. I can't describe it to you except that it has hints of citrus and spice. The candle lasts 45 hours and cost SGD $115.
My new scents joining my ever increasing harem of scents. Hehe! Wynn gave us some baby samples to try too.
I am truly beginning to enjoy being surrounded by beautiful scents. Its is calming and comforting. If you are a Jo Malone fan and are wanting to try them out for the first time, why not try their hand and arm massage. It is a luxurious and pampering experience.
I'm giving my Jo Malone experience a 5+ lipstick rating.
