The Intoxicating Power of a Hand Massage

A New Upscale River Oaks Boutique Brings London Mystique — and Perks

BY // 07.14.16

We’ve loved Jo Malone London since we first breathed a whiff of the intoxicating Lime Basil & Mandarin candle decades ago. Now Houston has its own Jo Malone London boutique in River Oaks District with its much-loved Fragrance Discovery Table, where we’ll come away drenched in scent, and the Tasting Bar, where one can relax and partake of a hand and arm massage.

The shop is nattily done up in punchy black-and-white stripes and stocks the full complement of British bespoke fragrances. And just in time for the Houston debut, a limited-edition collection of candles, scents, soaps and drawer-liner papers launches in a collaboration with British artist and wallpaper designer Marthe Armitrage.

Also new: Black Cedarwood & Juniper Cologne, skewing towards masculine but, as with all Jo Malone scents, worn by all. Jo Malone London, 4444 Westheimer in River Oaks District, 713.963.8450, jomalone.com.

Home, chic home.
