Can you re­mem­ber when you dis­cov­ered Jo Malone? I started wear­ing Red Roses when I was 22. I smelled it on a friend of mine, lov­ing how gen­tle and sweet it was and the next day, I was at Jo Malone Lon­don buy­ing my own bot­tle. Do you have a favourite

It’s Bri­tish, like I am, and there is some­thing in­fin­itely spe­cial and quirky about it. What will your role en­tail? As Jo Malone’s am­bas­sador, it is re­ally not a stretch for me to talk pas­sion­ately about these fra­grances be­cause they gen­uinely are part of my life. You got mar­ried in Lon­don and Morocco last year. How did you

in­clude scent? A friend told me that I needed a wed­ding scent, so that when­ever I smelled it, it would re­mind me of the best day of my life. Jo Malone helped me nd the per­fect one: Or­ange Blos­som. We scented the re­cep­tion restau­rant with Or­ange Blos­som can­dles and dif­fusers, and I wore the cologne. The bot­tle still sits on my bed­side ta­ble.
