On a fra­grant Jan­uary night, BAZAAR and Jo Malone Lon­don hosted a spec­tac­u­lar cast of guests at the Bri­tish High Com­mis­sioner’s Res­i­dence in Kuala Lumpur. Cel­e­brat­ing the brand’s el­e­gant yet un­ex­pected take on ar­ti­san fra­grances, they in­dulged in per­son­alised pam­per­ing with the dis­tinc­tive Jo Malone Lon­don body and hand lo­tions, as well as the renowned col­lec­tion of colognes. Scented can­dles in a cor­nu­copia of sig­na­tures warmly lit the res­i­dence for that all-em­brac­ing Jo Malone ex­pe­ri­ence.

Af­ter a de­light­ful out­door cock­tail re­cep­tion, an in­ti­mate sit­down din­ner en­sued, hosted by Paul Slavin, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Estée Lauder Com­pa­nies, and Tony Collingridge, di­rec­tor of UK Trade & In­vest­ment Malaysia. The con­tem­po­rary Bri­tish din­ner was much en­joyed, right down to the dessert of Val­rhona choco­late duo.

The soirée came af­ter the brand’s launch of its new­est Cologne In­tense col­lec­tion in Malaysia, and the evening air re­flected its phi­los­o­phy – the art of gift giv­ing, per­son­i­fied. The brand’s Bri­tish el­e­gance trans­lates beau­ti­fully into its pack­ag­ing and scents, and all guests bore wit­ness to it that night. Crafted in a kitchen in Lon­don in its early days and later ac­quired by the Estée Lauder Com­pa­nies in 1999, Jo Malone Lon­don is the last word in be­spoke beauty.
