You’ll be able to spot a Jo Malone perfume from a mile away thanks to the classic black and cream packaging and whilst she may already have several of their fragrances on her dressing table, their range is forever expanding. If this is her first Jo Malone fragrance, opt for a classic like the Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia or the Pomegranate Noir.
