Maverick perfumer?Jo Malone then took the stage to join Melanie Morris to share her story. Jo shared how her passion and creativity for fragrances started from a very young age which took her from the kitchen’to building a beauty empire. In 1999, Jo sold the Jo Malone London business to Est?e Lauder Companies and remained Creative Director until she left in 2006. Jo’s passion for fragrance never ceased and she started a new project/brand, Jo Loves – an innovative new scent, bath, body and candle collection. Jo shared her inspiring life stories and even gave us some expert tips on how to prolong perfume scent by applying it with a brush.
On the night we also had a charity raffle and collection for Breast Cancer Ireland which raised a whopping €1,000 and 5 lucky winners went home with some amazing prizes. Also on the night Jo exclusively’signed copies of her new book Jo Malone: My Story.
One lucky tweeter won an overnight stay for two, with dinner at The Wineport Lodge in Co. Athlone, courtesy of Ireland’s Blue Book, and Mazda Ireland kindly offered them the loan of a sporty Mazda MX5 to drive while on their mini holiday.
