Jo Malone London
Jo Malone opened her first store at 154 Walton Street in London in 1994, and by 1999 had launched her flagship store in London's Sloane Street.
In 2006, she sold it to Estée Lauder in its entirety. "After much soul-searching, I believe that this is a good time to make this decision as the brand is in a secure position and I have many other dreams and passions I would like to fulfil," she said.
In 2011 she announced the launch of her new fragrance company - Jo Loves - and launched it in November of the same year. "Fragrance is absolutely what I love so I'm so excited to be back," Malone told us at the time. "This new brand is all about memories - it's where I am and the person I am now."
