Introducing John Boyega 
The first Jo Malone London Gent

Meet the London born movie star John Boyega.

Boyega straddles two completely different worlds both professionally and personally: “From my roots in Peckham to the flashes of the red carpet, my life is two worlds colliding with one another. It’s crazy and thrilling,” says Boyega.

He brings a vibrant energy, an authentic sense of heritage and a look towards the future. “I love the creativity and storytelling element of Jo Malone London. It’s something I resonate with, it’s how I work best. With discussion, collaboration and down to earth honesty,” says Boyega.

Boyega  reverberates  with  vigour  and  energy  and  intends  to  bring  this  spirit  to  Jo  Malone London.  Each  of  our  scents  accentuate  the  surprising  and  bold,  just  like  our  leading  man. While a huge presence and personality, Boyega himself values understatement and originality in scent. “Bronze Wood & Leather has become a favourite. I like to wear it daily. It doesn’t attract too much attention, but at the same time it gets people looking and smelling,” says Boyega.

Boyega’s career so far demonstrates high versatility from British independent film, Attack the Block,  set  on  a  Brixton  estate,  to  Hollywood  as  the  leading  man  in  Star  Wars.  His  roles  are ambitious, complex and challenging. “When I read a script, it’s all about character arc. Something has to happen to my character. He has to be a different person at the end of it” he explains. “My favourite part about being on set is collaborating with the people. It’s how the magic starts and is created. To be a part of that and witness it is the biggest rush.”

Think London in all its spectacular clashes of culture and vibrancy, and who better to reflect this than Boyega, the newest member to our Jo Malone London family: The Gent.
