Jo Malone has perfect presents for picky people

My good friend Maureen has an aunt who is impossible to please.  Every year I watch her trying to find the perfect gift for her aunt and most years I hear the story later about what was wrong with that gift.  This got me thinking about what I would buy for someone hard to please and immediately thought of Jo Malone!  For those unfamiliar with the brand, Jo Malone is a British fragrance house that makes exquisite and luxurious products for the bath, body and home.  The packaging is simple yet elegant and the scents are to die for!  There isn't an aunt on earth that could turn her nose up at these:
Let her have a bath in style with the Pomegranate Noir Pamper Kit - $295 - Includes Bath Oil, Body Creme and Shimmer Body Powder - elegantly presented in a Jo Malone signature gift box.

The Cologne Collection (you know a line is classy when they have collections, not samplers!) - $110 - contains 6 - 9ml colognes that can be worn alone or layered together to create your own unique scent.  The set includes: Grapefruit, Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Pomegranate Noir, Sweet Lime & Cedar, Lime Basil & Mandarin and White Jasmine & Mint.  I love the grapefruit combined with sweet lime & cedar.  Actually I have seen (smelled) people with some crazy combinations that sounded weird but smelled amazing!

If your giftee is more about a bath go for The Bath Oil Collection - $95 - which contains 6 - 30ml oils in glass decanters.  Also meant to be used singly or mixed - like a chemistry set for grown ups!  It includes the same scents as the Cologne Collection:  Grapefruit, Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Pomegranate Noir, Sweet Lime & Cedar, Lime Basil & Mandarin and White Jasmine & Mint.
If none of the above suits, how about something from the Pine & Eucalyptus Collection?  It's a limited edition scent that smells just like a winter Christmas day.  You can choose one or more of the following:  Bath Soaps 3 x 100g - $60, Bath Oil 250ml - $72, Living Cologne 200ml - $138, Home Candle 200g - $75 or go crazy with the Luxury Candle 2.5kg - $400

Now I know what you are thinking, "this stuff is way to good for that crabby old lady, I want it for me!"  I couldn't agree more.  Buy it for yourself, let her play with the box!

Jo Malone is available in Canada at Holt Renfrew.
