Kate Middleton wore it (Orange Blossom, that is) on her wedding day. Poppy Delevigne and Victoria Beckham swear by it. Jo Malone London scents are synonymous with exclusivity, and pampering and need no further introduction. A fantastic gift for housewarming, anniversaries, weddings, self-pampering, and even travels. Its product range from colognes, candles, diffusers, hair mists, body and hand wash and lotions, bath soaps, and body creme. The brand is truly gender neutral, and its packaging looks good even as home décor!

Yahoo Shopping: Where do I start when experimenting with Jo Malone scent layering?

Sabet: Wearing fragrances is linked to personal expression. At Jo Malone London, our scents are designed to be worn alone or paired with another to create your signature scent. A great way to start your daily fragrance ritual is by layering as you go. Start by using our deliciously scented Body & Hand Wash which gives an uplifting start to the day. Next, delicately scent your skin with the Body & Hand Lotion and even your bathroom. Finally, enjoy a spritz of cologne over the top as the finishing touch.

Which are the top three favourite scent pairings?

At the moment, in this humid weather – consider wearing bright and enlivening scents. Lime Basil & Mandarin, Jo Malone London's signature scent, is a go-to. It's suitable for all genders, and it's a modern classic. To make it fresher on a hot day, try pairing it with English Pear & Freesia Cologne which adds a golden coolness to the scent. If you’re looking to change your scent for the evening, make Lime Basil & Mandarin warmer by spritzing the spirited Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne over the top. There are no rules when it comes to pairing scents. Experiment until you find the ones that you love!

What scents would work well in our unforgiving humidity?

Layer and add texture to your scent ritual by first using scented Bath & Body products. Jo Malone London Hair Mists are a great way to add a subtle scent to your hair during the day. Their lightweight formula makes them perfect for humid climates. To truly discover the wonders of scent, book a complimentary consultation with one of Jo Malone London’s expert Stylists.

Now that travelling is back, what should we consider when using fragrances in different climates?

When taking a holiday to a new destination, a travel ritual is to treat myself to a fresh scent. I spritz the same scent when I return home and am instantly reminded of my time away. I also love to use scents when I travel on business to remind me of home; I always have a Pomegranate Noir Travel Candle close by as the scent adds a quality of familiarity. 30ml colognes are perfect for travel as they can be kept in the smallest bag for easy reach! Mini sets in 9ml are a great place to start too.
