Well, this was interesting, but not because the fragrance itself, but rather because it is nostalgic for me. I put this on and my first thought after wearing for a bit was "This is fresh and floral but I can't say it reminds me of peonies or suede, though it reminds me of something...." What? My first "fancy" perfume acquired in the early '90s, Sung, by Alfred Sung. The EDP, not the horrible EDT, which still floats around discount stores today. Peony Blush is a white floral, but it has that 80s/90s note of clean/freshness. No musk or mustyness. It is says "hey, I'm floral, but I am not just a fusty old rose or violet from Crabtree & Evelyn." Coco Chanel was right that women don't want want to smell like a bed of roses. There has to be something more. For the 90s that was the clean, fresh notes. In their fear of smelling "old lady," the 90s still missed sexy/sensual IMO. And that's how I feel about this JM fragrance. Peonies don't really have one smell. Some are deeply sweet, some have no scent. Most would be hard-pressed to say exactly what a peony smells like besides floral. Se we have here a somewhat generic clean floral scent with a tartness that cuts any possibility of being cloying. Iis not too sinus jabbingly sharp either. It's a smooth clean. No suede, no other identifiable notes to my nose, though perhaps the almost candy tart sharpness was supposed to be apple. But the nostalgia of this thing came to the fact that it really reminded me exactly of Sung EDP, which I wore for some years. A white floral, clean and expensive smelling to me (at the time). In fact, they both do have rose, jasmine and carnation in common. Anyway, I enjoyed this for the nostalgia, but it really doesn't seem to be a very interesting or innovative scent. Would not buy a FB. It's pleasant, but lacks the sensuality and uniqueness I personally enjoy in a fragrance.

I was entranced by the description of this being a spicy, sophisticated gourmand scent, with notes of ginger, vanilla, tonka bean, caramel and hazelnut. So entranced that I hastily ordered a FB unsniffed as this is LE and seems to sell out fast everywhere when it does occasionally come out. My enthusiasm quickly dissipated after a few sprays on my sweater though. First I got a waft of bouncy ginger that was pleasant enough if you like ginger, which I am assuming someone who buys Ginger Biscuit does. I say "bouncy" because there was something distinctly fizzy about this, as in it really reminded me of straight-up ginger-ale. That settled down very fast and I got a burnt plastic/synthetic baking note. I didn't like it and took my sweater off, deciding to give it more sniffs tomorrow. Well, the ultimate dry-down is totally indistinguishable from BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar. Maybe it has less silage though. But if you love that, you'll love this. In fact, if you love this and bemoan its LE status, just head on over to BBW and save yourself a bundle. Or better yet, go to Target and pick up Bodycology's Brown Sugar Vanilla. I am pretty shocked that JM is even producing something so done and unsophisticated. Personally, it gives me a headache, but a lot of people find this BBW classic quite pleasant. It does stick close to the skin so it probably won't offend anyone.

I love this scent, it’s very strong and reveals multiple layers throughout the day. Definitely my scent for 2018

I absolutely love this perfume! It's so fresh and fun but not overly masculine. I'm pleasantly surprised by how long this lasts in comparison with other Jo Malone fragrances. While this is best in warm months, there's nothing like it to brighten up a cold gloomy day. Layers well with countless other Jo perfumes like Orange Blossom and Wood Sage Sea Salt. I love putting on a hoody and smelling the faintness of this scent from the day before.
