I’m a long time lover of Jo Malone – having bought my first fragrance back in (approx) 2014. It’s my go to brand when I’m looking to be a little bit indulgent and treat myself to something special. Whilst the price isn’t for the faint hearted (it sounds even worse in dollars) the products have yet to fail me – the beautiful scents and pretty designs are well worth the investment.
From colognes to candles, room sprays to bath oils – I’ve tried them all over the years. However for me, the colognes are the real star of the show and are by far my most coveted items so I thought I’d share a round up of my top picks.
For floral fans, Wild Bluebell and Honeysuckle & Davana are stunning scents. Wild Bluebell mixes the delicate sweetness of bluebells with lily of the valley, eglantine and persimmon which create a bright, fresh scent that’s perfect for every day use. Honeysuckle & Davana smells like wild honeysuckle deep in the English countryside – it reminds me of Peony & Blush Suede (a reference for other JM lovers) but with a slightly woodier undertone.
Wood Sage & Sea Salt smells like cashmere sweaters on the beach on a cloudy day; warm, cozy and yet still fresh. Blackberry & Bay is for me the perfect fragrance and my all time favourite Jo Malone scent. Both fresh and fruity but with a woody mix helping to make it more sensual, it’s designed to mix the freshness of just-gathered blackberries with bay and brambly woods and smells truly delightful. It’s also perfect layered with Wood Sage & Sea Salt.
