I really loved this fragrance when I bought it two years ago. I used only one third of the bottle and now somehow I can’t stand the strong rose notes in it.


Fragrances -Jo Malone -French Lime Blossom

on 6/12/2018 8:41:00 AM

Right now (June) we have several blossoming linden trees in our neighbourhood. The smell is so glorious! This is why I searched for a linden blossom perfume. Enter Jo Malone french lime blossom. It smells very much like real blossom! But while I love the scent of linden blossom in the air, I discovered I don’t love it as a perfume. Too sweet and cloying, not my idea of a fresh or clean scent.
If I want to smell fresh/clean I prefer something like Guerlain Herba Fresca, aqua di gioia or rose by Roger et Gallet.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Red Roses

When i first tried this it was while i was at Neiman Marcus. I remember being stunned. Transfixed at the beauty of what i was smelling. It was like i was floating in a vortex of liquid mercury and rose petals. If ypu want a rose scent with no other notes to dilute the fabulous scent of roses in a garden then Jo Malones Red Roses is the perfume for you. This smells exactly like what the name suggests. Red Roses. Almost a victorian black gothic rose scent. There's a slight dew in the air and you dance in it. The dew turns darker. One raindrop hits your nose. You run smiling into the rose garden. Hundreds and hundreds of roses are now around you as it starts to rain. You drop to the ground under a single rose. You see a drop of water on the rose. It falls off the rose and hits your nose and you squeal in laughter and childlike delight with the innocent smell of a rose garden in the english countryside.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Wood Sage & Sea Salt

Great scent, this smells like the beach not in a tropical way this is a cold beach scent, like taking a walk on a windy beach to clear your mind wraping yourself up in a cashmere blanket. Woody, salty and fresh very suitable for all seasons and unisex. Now about the lasting power and sillage, Jo Malone is known to have fleeting scents but in my opinion this really depends on the scent, some do last very long. Unfortunately this is one of the weaker ones, it doesn't have much projection it stays close to the skin and the scent is light. I purchased the small 30ml bottle and went true the bottle in 1 month, I like this fragrance but would not repurchase another bottle because price/performance it's not worth it for me.

This perfume has a distinct grass smell to it which I love. It's so subtle and soft but it lingers on the skin. I bought the smaller 1 oz purse spray because the Jo Malone colognes are expensive. I like that you can layer different scents to create something unique. I just wish they weren't so pricey but I was able to smell all the scents at Sephora in Las Vegas at the Venetian. I made a list of all the scents I liked so I can pick up a couple during the Sephora 20% off sale at the end of the year.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -English Pear and Freesia

English Pear and Freesia is such a beautiful fragrance. To me, it smells very clean with floral undertones. There is a fizzy cider smell to me that must be the pear note but it smells so effervescent and fresh. The freesia comes off like a light floral. Fragrance is so subjective. I tend to gravitate toward clean smells and this is definitely clean. There are no powder or vanilla notes in it at all. I really love the scent. I was able to pick this up at the huge Sephora in the Venetian shops in Las Vegas. They had a large section of Jo Malone so I was able to smell everything and make note of which scents I liked. I ended up buying the English Pear and Freesia in the larger size. This perfume is expensive, $135 for 3.4 ounces. I love perfume, so to me it was worth it. It's such a lovely scent.

My first Jo Malone fragrance and still my favourite to this day! I love how simplistic but sophisticated Jo Malone scents are - on me, this smells like fresh red roses with a burst of sweet lychee. The silage is surprisingly long lasting and I always get compliments when I wear this. Non-offensive but vibrant, perfect for everyday wear.

It's a nice smell but not fresh or clean as professed by many. It reminds me of soft, sweet honeysuckle. It is elegant, but it's not my favorite.

I adore this fragrance, but my big gripe is that it fades really quickly. For the price this should last a full day.

Obtained a sample at the King of Prussia Sephora. My two takeaways:
A. As I anticipated for a citrus-heavy perfume by Jo Malone, this has no staying power.
B. For the brief time that it does linger on your skin, it has the smell of mothballs.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Peony & Blush Suede

on 12/9/2017 4:38:00 PM

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. . 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." 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. 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 clean,white floral 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.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Ginger Biscuit

on 12/7/2017 5:24:00 PM

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
