Forget your carb-count for the day and get your lips around some loaves while trying out Jo Malone’s new grain-based scents.

There’s something unbearably romantic yet wholesome about the idea of lazing around in a wheat field in the sun like something out of a Jane Austen novel. That’s the scene evoked by the new Jo Malone collection of grain-based blends, English Fields. Classic English florals pair with fieldgrass notes in a light, warm and lively collection that includes Poppy and Barley, Primrose and Rye, Oat and Cornflower, Honey and Crocus and Green Wheat and Meadowsweet.

And until Saturday, you can get an actual taste of field-grown grains while you’re test-spraying the new scents at the Britomart store – Amano has a heaping platter of their mouth-watering Five Grain Loaf, Traditional Sourdough, Traditional Baguette, and Miche Loaf in-store for sampling.
