I don’t know what was more exciting about this event the Jo Malone or the Hawksmoor cocktails… Probably the cocktails but hey.
I’m still a fan of Malone- it’s a fast ticket to buying class. I still have a candle unlit by my bed, a gift from last Christmas. It should only be lit on special occasions, like if the queen popped round.
So there we were sat in Hawksmoor bar waiting for a perfume stand, only to be instructed the event was actually in the Jo Malone store with a Hawksmoor stand….
Cut to a fast pace stride down Regent Street
“We can’t miss out on the gin!!”
Arriving in a fluster, we instantly calmed down when greeted by a glass of champagne- as entering a cloud of Malone
That was the end of that.
It didn’t take long to finish the champagne and wander over to the Hawksmoor stand. There was a choice of G&T or martini, both with the guest gin Hepple.
A gin that prides itself on producing the most flavourable gin by combinding ripe juniper berries with young green juniper berries. Sure enough the G&T oozed with fresh, earthy flavours..intrigued by the little plant garnish.. Never seen that before!
Fair to say we were feeling a little lighter after… perfect time for a hand massage
The cherry on the top we were given a goodie bag !
