In a captivating blend of opulence and aromatics, Shangri-La Al Husn in Oman has launched Scented Memories by Jo Loves, a sumptuous sensory escapade curated by Jo Malone CBE. This beckoning journey transcends the ordinary, transporting guests from the clamour of everyday life to the sun-kissed shores of Muscat, Oman.

In this bespoke experience, scent maestro Jo Malone CBE has bottled her Middle Eastern odyssey, encapsulating the essence of her travels in her latest fragrance, the lavish and intricate Ebony & Cassis. Infused with the evocative wood of a dhow boat, the richness of Omani silks and tapestries, the depths of a starlit night, and the promise of adventure, this fragrance marks a distinct departure from the conventional Jo Loves collection.

True to Jo’s distinctive style, Ebony & Cassis ventures beyond the norm, fusing traditional heritage with contemporary elegance–a beautiful fusion of East meeting West. This fragrance heralds a new chapter in Jo’s life, symbolizing her upcoming adventures.

With Scented Memories by Jo Loves, Shangri-La and Jo Malone CBE extend an invitation to guests at Shangri-La Al Husn to craft their own narrative of joy. Exclusively welcoming guests aged 16 and above, Shangri-La Al Husn exudes dramatic Omani architecture amidst breathtaking natural vistas, resembling a clifftop castle overseeing a private Gulf of Oman beach.

The experience includes a three-night stay in a luxurious room or suite in Shangri-La Al Husn, starting from RO597 for three nights (based on two people sharing).

The Scented Memories by Jo Loves experience generously includes a luxury gift set including a 110ml bottle of Jo Loves fragrance, a body cream and a Jo Loves candle; complimentary in-room minibar including selected alcoholic beverages and snacks; gourmet À la carte and buffet breakfast for two at Sultanah restaurant; a dining credit of RO 30 per stay; one complimentary 60-minute couple’s spa treatment in the Luban Spa finessed with Jo Loves body cream; daily afternoon high tea for two; complimentary aperitif hour every evening with beverages and canapés and live music in the courtyard; and a complimentary cocktail per person inspired by the Jo Loves Ebony & Cassis fragrance.

A signed complimentary copy of Jo Malone’s memoir ‘My Story’ will also be given away for the first 50 bookings of the Scented Memories by Jo Loves experience, which is available to book until May 12, 2024 for stays until May 31, 2024.

Expressing her enthusiasm, Jo Malone remarked, “Scent has the most amazing ability to transport us to a time or place. Just as I’m telling you stories of my life through my fragrances, I hope Jo Loves becomes a part of your memories from your stay at the Shangri-La Al Husn. I hope you love the scented journey we will take you on,’ Love Jo x.”

René D. Egle, Area General Manager of Shangri-La Al Husn, Muscat and Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah, Muscat said: “Shangri-La Al Husn and Jo Loves by the exceptionally talented Jo Malone CBE are two luxury brands that exist to create original and personalised experiences, usually through very different means, to guests. However together we’ve created an exceptional escape in a beautiful, culturally rich resort and country that embraces true Omani hospitality and understands the meaning of luxury. We look forward to welcoming guests from near and far to explore this little corner of the world.”
