Apologises, is it far too early to talk about Christmas? Perhaps, but it's on our radar already. We've dared to break the ice with the mention of the legendary Jo Malone advent calendar.
Christmas is arriving early this year at the iconic beauty house, with the advent calendar on sale date being revealed already! The must-have beauty advent goes on sale on the 1st October – earlier than last year's 1st November date. It'll be available exclusively for a two week preview online, before it launches in boutiques nationwide.
The best advent calendars for 2021 – from coffee to wine and chocolate
It may seem early, but if you're looking to splash out this year, best snap yours up as soon as they go on sale to avoid disappointment.
The Jo Malone advent calendar 2020
What's inside the Christmas advent calendar?
The entire contents are Jo Malone, so no bad days on the countdown with this advent. The calendar is filled with 24 draws, each filled with fragrant loveliness – including mini Jo Malone colognes, body lotions, candles and rooms scents.
All the products feature best-selling, signature Jo Malone scents – to ensure the countdown smells wonderful. Including much-loved Blackberry & Bay Cologne (9ml) and English Pear & Freesia Body Crème (15ml) alongside new additions to the line-up such as Bronze Wood & Leather Cologne Intense (9ml).
How much is it?
Take a deep breath, it's not cheap. BUT it is bursting with wondrous, indulgent Jo Malone goodies. Has that the taken the edge off? Good. It's £320.
Thinking how to get more value for money, the box itself isn't decorated with Christmas – therefore could be used as storage once it's all over?! (we're trying here!)
Jo Malone London’s Advent Calendar for Christmas 2020, is modelled on the stunning Jo Malone London Townhouse. In the same signature style of the iconic packaging the advent box is classic cream and black.
The exterior of the box is once again decorated with a detailed illustration of the Townhouse – as if inviting us into the heart of the whole Jo Malone operation.
