JO LOVES… White Rose & Lemon Leaves – a fragile fragrance to soothe the soul…

With the Easter holidays nearly upon us, and the myriad fraught family dramas they often entail, now might be the perfect time to indulge yourself with a calorie-free fragrant delight with which to becalm the senses and forget about chocolate-covered carpets and tear-stained tantrums (from children and adults alike, we find!)
JO LOVES says: ‘A beautiful rose absolute laced with crushed green lemon leaves gently resting on a bed of wafer thin cedar wood, JO LOVES new perfume, White Rose & Lemon Leaves is a full bloom floral inspired by the distinctive scent of a Norma Jean rose. Perfectly balanced with subtle strands of bitter, peppered citrus and the softest cedar wood, this fresh, elegant fragrance has a unique depth of character that increases as it warms and settles on the skin.’
Top notes: lemon peel, petit grain, pink pepper
Heart notes: white rose oil, geranium leaves, muguet, violet
Base notes: rose absolute, clove buds, honey, amber
We found this to be incredibly dreamy to wear, a welcome relief from the heavier perfumes we’d been favouring pre-spring, and a scent that manages to be both calming and emotionally uplifting at the same time. Just what we need right now – how about you…?!
‘Just like a piece of porcelain, there is something so delicate about holding a rose in the palm of your hand. White Rose & Lemon Leaves combines the fragility of this beautiful bloom together with the familiar scent intensity associated with rose.
To me, white roses represent the gift of love and celebration; welcoming the birth of a new born, held by a bride on her wedding day and often given by my husband and son to make me feel special. White Rose & Lemon Leaves is my interpretation of life’s most treasured and memorable moments.’ – Jo Malone MBE
