Marthe Armitage is an artist and wallpaper designer who has been living and working in London for 60 years. She draws, cuts lino, mixes paint and prints herself to create wallpaper entirely by hand.
Her collaboration with Jo Malone London is inspired by the ingredients in the brand’s elegantly simple scents and Henry James’s belief that the two happiest words in the English language are ‘summer afternoon.’
‘I wanted to capture the perfect English summer afternoon,’ says Marthe. ‘It needed to feel alive and I wanted to weave in ingredients from the Jo Malone London scents. This project has seen me exploring a world I’ve not experienced before and it’s been lovely.’
Her hand-printed Summer Afternoon design decorates the boxes and bottles in this limited collection, in keeping with the brand’s history of collaboration with celebrated British artisans.
Summer Afternoon captures the entrancing haze of an English summer’s afternoon. A green and fragrant garden, buzzing with bees. Dappled sunlight. Ducks on the lawn. The tap of the croquet ball and laughter of children. A gardener resting on the bench, his face to the warm sun. All surrounded by the scent of just-ripe tomatoes in the air, mingling with sweet blossom and romantic roses. Warm, balmy and golden.
Red Roses Scented Drawer Liners
Frolicking foxes, waddling ducks, the bee keeper, all surrounding a game of croquet.
Each Scented Drawer Liner is decorated with rambling Red Roses.
Green Tomato Leaf Home Candle
An evocative Home Candle capturing the lively scent of the tomato vines on
the glass. Green, leafy and full of sunshine on a Summer Afternoon.
Nectarine Blossom & Honey Glass Decanter Bath Oil
Nectarine Blossom & Honey Bath Oil in a glass decanter etched with honey
bees and fluttering blossom. Sweet and delightfully playful as the summer breeze.
Four soaps wrapped. Verdant Blackberry & Bay, golden English Pear & Freesia, zesty
Lime Basil & Mandarin and enigmatic Pomegranate Noir.
All uniquely presented in a special Jo Malone London box decorated with Marthe Armitage’s Summer Afternoon design.
