If you’re looking for a Christmas present for either you, your bestie or your sister, but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to the decadent fumes of Jo Malone (the 30ml bottles start at £52), then look no further than good ol’ Zara who actually stock a perfume line which has been designed by no other than actual Jo Malone herself.
The perfumier first teamed up with the high street fashion brand back in 2019 to create a line of affordable scents which were met with instant praise from the beauty gurus of the internet. And, just last week, Jo herself – who now heads up Jo Loves after selling her Jo Malone brand to Estee Lauder in 1999 and leaving the brand as creative director in 2006 – launched a brand new range with Zara.
Named ‘Vibrant Cities’, the eight-piece collection features names and scents inspired by destinations around the world.
Each bottle looks aesthetically pleasing in that minimal way that both Zara and Jo Loves are famed for, and retail at £19.99 for 75ml.
You can choose from: Energetically New York, Elegantly Tokyo, Gracefully Madrid, Magnificently Dubai, Boldly Seoul, Stunningly Venice, Creatively Shanghai and Fashionably London.
There’s also candles, hand and body wash, hand and body cream, travel sets and discovery sets along with 10ml and 40ml bottles on offer as part of the range.
Your best bet? Getting yourself down to store to have a proper scent test before stocking up on your fave!
