What a pleasure it was to shoot for Jo Malone, a wonderful British brand with so much heritage and, of course, delicious scents. I had the opportunity to photograph some of the key pieces of their current collection in the stunning Royal Suite at the Corinthia… Now if that isn’t a shoot made in heaven, I don’t know what is.

As part of a collaboration with Nathan Rollinson, I spent a glorious afternoon surrounded by the most divine fragrances (my favourite is English Pear & Freesia), creams, and black and white boxes. Opening a Jo Malone box feels like Christmas, so there was a heck load of excitement seeing what the team had sent. It’s always a pleasure shooting brands I love in breathtaking locations, creating a story with the products in front of you. Our story, of course, was the connection of Jo Malone and London, and what better spot than in the iconic Corinthia hotel.

I shot these photographs in the 465m2 Royal Penthouse suite, which has an 180 degree view of the River Thames and all the best parts of the city. We got lost in the two-floor suite – sat at the 10-seat dining room table, explored the grand marble bathrooms and of course, relaxed on the terrace peering out to every part of London. Sometimes you wish you could capture every moment and memory and lock it away until you want to relive it again. I’m not sure when I’ll next get to live the penthouse life bathing in boxes of Jo Malone again, but what I do know is that I can take home a gorgeous candle, light it and relive that dreamy afternoon…
