10 Things That Say Home To Jo Malone
Even if you don’t know who Jo Malone CBE is, you are certainly familiar with her name. The entrepreneur’s first brand, Jo Malone London, has made her a household name–and her candles and perfumes a household smell. (We couldn’t resist.) Malone would eventually sell the brand to Estée Lauder, and stayed on as creative director until 2006. Her second brand, Jo Loves, launched in 2011, and is full of scents that are both classic and unexpected.
