Jo Malone Traces Improbable Journey from Humble Beginnings to Fragrance Fortune

Discusses her new autobiography, shares life lessons with RJ Julia’s Roxanne Coady on “Just The Right Book Podcast”

Hamden, CT – Legendary fragrance pioneer Jo Malone documents her incredible rise to the top of the fragrance world in a new autobiography and shares her story on “Just the Right Book Podcast.”

Malone, interviewed by podcast host Roxanne Coady from R.J. Julia Booksellers, describes how she went from lugging a portable massage table door to door to building a fragrance empire eventually sold to Estee Lauder.

In the podcast episode, she talks about her autobiography, Jo Malone: My Story (Simon & Schuster, 2016), and shares reflections on her childhood, becoming a mother, battling breast cancer, and her business experiences and lessons.

“I think I’m naturally predestined to look at my glass as half full,” says Malone. “You have three options in life: Accept the situation, get yourself out of the situation and walk away, or change the way you look at it.”

Other insights by Malone in the podcast:

“The key ingredient to success is not what’s in the bottle; it’s integrity.”

“Don’t be frightened by creativity.”

“Retail is all about theater, circus, entertainment, and passion for products.”
