Founded by London tastemaker and former facialist Jo Malone in 1994, this eponymous beauty brand has evolved into a global fragrance empire. The label’s third NYC store (it joins boutiques in Grand Central Terminal and on the Upper East Side) provides New Yorkers with exquisite, straight-from-an-English-garden aromas, and encourages customers to blend colognes to create a bespoke scent. Woodsy Wild Fig & Cassis, spicy Vanilla & Anise and floral Vintage Gardenia ($55 for 30ml, $110 for 100ml) lead the pack of classics, but it’s not all about the perfumes. Also look for gift-perfect Roasted Chestnut Deluxe candles ($130) and nourishing, avocado-laden vitamin E face and body products ($25–$90). Dominated by Jo Malone’s signature shades of white, black and cream, the apartment-like space mixes design elements both modern (coal-black corbeled walls and chandeliers, midcentury-style seating) and classic (heritage cabinetry, elaborately carved sconce shelving). A so-called tasting bar offers complimentary services, such as relaxing hand and arm massages using the brand’s luxurious skin smoothers.
