Inspired by a British sensibility, the world of Jo Malone London is cherished globally. The brand’s emphasis on quality ingredients, beautiful craftsmanship, attention to detail, unique storytelling, and meticulous service resonates deeply in Japan, whose culture values these same principles. The new Harajuku store builds on this synergy, drawing from Japan’s reputation for innovative design and promoting a playful approach to discovering fragrances.

The 2,540 sq ft space encourages hands-on exploration with features like a cabinet of curiosities, unique displays such as an opulent-yet-imperfect chandelier, and a bespoke interactive shell phone. Reflecting Japan’s youthful celebration of individual style, the store offers personalisation services with a global preview of new personalisation options. Exclusive to the Harajuku store, there are select pieces including a limited-edition tote bag, a postcard designed by artist Amyisla McCombie, and two exclusive colognes inspired by Japanese ingredients: Nashi Blossom and Cherry Blossom, each presented in a specially designed story box with kawaii illustrations.
