“I love breaking the rules of fragrance and this mouth-watering combination of sweet mango, sharp lime and punchy pepper is a celebration of Thailand’s most vibrant culinary flavours” - JO MALONE CBE
Evoking memories from around the world is what inspires Jo to create mesmerising scents and Mango Thai Lime is no exception. It was one evening sitting at the Fours Season’s cocktail bar in New York which first inspired Jo to create a scent built on love for one of her favourite places in the world, Thailand. Mango Thai Lime combines the culinary delights of Thailand with fresh mango, kaffir lime and black pepper with herbaceous thyme, mint and vetiver.Jo’s interpretation of Mango; bright, vibrant and full of sweet and succulent golden tones, bursts onto the fragrance scene with a scent that can only be described as a sip of sweet honey on your tongue. Renowned for breaking the rules of fragrance, Jo Malone CBE has once again applied her signature artistry to present an energetic and unpredictable interpretation; youthful and fresh, yet warm and evocative of sunshine and light.
"Thailand is a very special place for me, and a constant source of inspiration. My first powerful memory with Mango was at a beautiful wedding in Thailand staying at the stunning Amanpuri hotel. Every day there was sliced mango with a dash of lime and you could both smell and taste the notes together. I love the sharp, zesty qualities of Thai Lime and shot over Mango, it creates a very clean, cologne-like scent. When I was drinking a cocktail in New York, watching the way the ingredients were crushed, stirred and shaken together to create something totally unique resembled my approach to fragrance design. I loved the way that adding a shot of something unexpected took each cocktail in a completely different direction and I knew I could do the same with fragrance” – JO MALONE CBE
