Fragrances -Jo Malone -Colognes (various fragrances)

on 12/5/2018 1:16:00 PM

I have had problems w JM cologne. My 1st real foray into them was orange blossom cologne (why do they have to be colognes geez), I heard Kate Middleton wears it. I excitedly ordered it from Nordies.com ...what a disappointment. I returned it. Yes I ok I know they are colognes. Then I ordered an Xmas ornament w sea salt speay mini & mini pear body cream $35 eek but the sea salt didn’t have a lot of staying power. Again yes I know they are colognes. I returned red roses & orange bitters because my mom was pissed at me for spending $35 on this. I got a decant off eBay smelled good no staying power. So I done found an LE “body spray” (Cattleya) & an LE “eau de toilette” 1oz I couldn’t resist ordering from Sephora. I got cattleya today &I am satisfied w it. Her colognes have a ton of complexity but they don’t last. I caution you they are skinscents. The cattleya flower started out green morphed into a more buttery white floral but my nose goes blind to scents. But I am satisfied w this & I want to try a cologne intense right now! Her scents are so delicate they aren’t strong. They are the most complex scents I have tried. They are uncommon! If you don’t mind reapplying these & you don’t mind or you like, skin scents thee are amazing.


Fragrances -Jo Malone -Wood Sage & Sea Salt

Wood Sage and Sea Salt is a beautifully unique fragrance. It smells salty and fresh. It reminds me of a breezy day at the ocean. I especially love how well this fragrance layers with others, particularly Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay as well as Wild Bluebell. It transforms this seaside scent into something even more lovely and memorable. It is a scent that can be worn during any season. The bottle is timeless and elegant. I wish the price tag wasn’t quite so steep, but that is to be expected with a very high quality product. Wood Sage and Sea Salt has become a staple beauty product in my fragrance collection.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Wood Sage & Sea Salt

Pros:
- good sweet grapefruit scent that dries down to hints of sage
- may be appropriate for office where cubicles are the norm, for church, or dinner (does not overpower with food scents)

Cons:
- pricey for poor longevity
- longevity is only two hours before it is nose-to-wrist

One spray on me:
Longevity: 2 hours then skin scent
Sillage: barely arm's length
Rating: 4/5

Jo Malone is not known for longevity or sillage which could be good or bad, depending on your need. This one is pretty and inoffensive. As soon as I sprayed it though, my eyes lit up as I enjoyed the soft sweet citrus rivalling lily of the valley type citrus scents. My lips could not stop smiling as I sniffed and huffed THAT spot on my wrist. Yummy! The only holdback for me is the price. $100 for 30ml?? It is very pretty but not original and one I expect to find easily at Target, Walmart or drugstores.

I love this with its herbal, light woody salty scent. I actually wear this for bed in warmer months as it has a neutral, inoffensive smell and it doesn’t overpower or overwhelm when worn and it relaxes me. The downside of this perfume is that it doesn’t last long as it is a cologne and it is unbelievably expensive for a scent that doesn’t last longer than two hours on my skin but on my clothes it lasts a little longer. Definitely great for layering and I tend to pair this with Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay, Peony & Blush Suede and JHAG Not a Perfume to strengthen its longevity. Overall a great scent and despite the price I will definitely repurchase once my bottle is replenished.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -blackberry and bay

This was love at first sniff for me. I'm totally obsessed about it at the moment and bought 2 bottles of different sizes once I tried a sample.
I love berries and this is fresh and slightly sweet at the start. A perfect perk me up in the mornings when I get ready for work. It doesn't last long and becomes a herbal scent which u can sniff on your wrist after a few hours if u applied a few sprays on the same spot. I really wish I can smell like the top fruity notes all day.
Now I want to try out all blackberry fragrances out there. I think I will love this forever. HG for me! :D

unisex and super sophisticated, i always get compliments on this. jo malone is always pricey because it's not edp but this particular scent has enough body that reapplication is just a couple of sprays, if any.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Nectarine Blossom and Honey

I bought this blindly as the only stores that sell Jo Malone are in the city and I dont live there so had to order online. I wanted Orange Blossom but they only had the large bottle and I wanted a small one as Jo Malone scents are notoriously short lived when sprayed on the skin I wanted one that I could throw in my bag and top up during the day but this is really tiny, smaller than I expected it to be and at 54 euro its not cheap so im not too happy about that.

Im not sure what to make of the scent. Its sweet and there's definitely peach in there but it has a soapy smell to it and im undecided if its a good soapy smell or a bad one, it maybe smells a little cheap or synthetic.. like if someone made a perfume for children. But then theres something very nice about it too, the peach is lovely, its unusual and after a couple of minutes sitting on the skin, it begins to soften and mature a little. Im really unsure how to feel about it although despite that..ive a feeling it may could grow on me, time will tell.

Edit - Ive decided it smells a little bit like furniture polish but I layered it with Lime, Basil and Mandarin changes it entirely, its gorgeous. I added a spritz of Peony and Blush Suede on top and these 3 scents work amazingly together. So it wasnt a total waste. I feel that maybe this is best as a layering perfume.

Candles -Jo Malone -All Candles

The candles I bought 3-total- were great smelling and not a bad price. However- all 3 had wick issues- 1 I was not able to burn an hour. The other 2 had wicks that ended up in the corner of the jars such that after a few minuets-it kept going out. Very frustrating!

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Red Roses

I’ve always loved roses. I’ve owned Une Rose and Lipstick Rose from Frederick Malle, YSL Paris and Parisienne, Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria Rose, L’occitane’s Roses et Reines, and even Crabtree and Evelyn’s Rosewater and Glycerin body care and fragrances, yet not one of those compares to JM’s Red Roses. Like others before me, you get a beautiful green, chilled, moisture-rich rose - and it is this that is classically familiar. What is new and unexpected relative to the other rose fragrances,is the dry down: hints of Rose - a tickle of Rose still wafts through, a very sensuous caramelized honey or beeswax emerges. It makes the scent so real, like you’re in a dewy garden of roses, while snagging a flower by cutting it, and finding a bee-keeper and the bees nearby. I almost did not purchase since I had such a huge rose collection - but this is by far my favorite. I prefer modest sillage as I wear fragrance to work daily, yet I want longevity so I can enjoy the fragrance through the day - this captures it perfectly.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Peony & Blush Suede Cologne

If this was a colour it would be dusty pink. Its a very feminine, delicate yet sophisticated smell, not over powering and perfect for day time. Its fresh but has a bite of something which without, it would be bland and uninteresting but theres a hint of something, its almost like a scented powder, reminds of me those old fashioned scented face and body powders with the big puffs.. but then theres something else, the formula doesnt sit on top of the skin, it melts into the skin, the scent becomes 'your' scent if that makes any sense. Ive never had a perfume like it.

The lady in the shop gave me a little sample of Lime, Basil and Mandarin and told me that its really nice layered with Peony and Blush Suede. On its own the sample is not to my taste as it initially smells overpowering and like Potpourri and dries down to a quite warm and masculine scent and kind of smells like a scented candle, I like feminine notes and delicate fragrances. - Layered with Peony and Blush Suede its something else entirely, they both merge to create a new scent thats sweet and feminine yet ever so slightly masculine with a mandarin base, its warm yet delicate and sophisticated. It has a bit more strength to it than Peony and Blush Suede on its own, but its softer than the Lime, Basil and Mandarin. Its a very unique scent and something I will save for nights out and special occasions. These two scents really compliment each other - so much so id be tempted to buy a full bottle of the sample even though I dont like it on its own.

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.

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.
