Jo Malone has been described as an 'English scent maverick' and the woman responsible for creating some of the world's most-loved fragrances.
Originally a facial therapist, Jo discovered an instinctual talent for fragrance whilst making scented products by hand in her kitchen. From these artisan beginnings Jo launched her first brand, Jo Malone London which quickly gained cult status around the world.
In 1999, Jo sold the business to Estée Lauder Companies and remained Creative Director until she left in 2006.
Two years later in 2008, Jo was honoured with an MBE for her services to the beauty industry.
Aware that her passion for fragrance had never left her, Jo’s entrepreneurial instincts lead her back to the beauty industry and in November 2011, five years after leaving her eponymous brand, Jo launched Jo Loves to global anticipation.
In 2013, Jo opened the first Jo Loves store in Belgravia’s Elizabeth Street, where coincidentally she began her career as a sixteen year old florist. Bottling her undeniable desire to create beautiful and unexpected fragrances, pioneering new products and entertaining experiences, Jo Loves embodies integrity, creativity and innovation.
Recognised for her industry expertise, Jo regularly shares her brand building experience with audiences around the world, highlighting her entrepreneurial journey and how she intends to change the way the world wears fragrance…for a second time!
