Fragrances -Jo Malone -Peony & Blush Suede

Not much to say really other than this is my current favourite Jo Malone perfume. It's a floral as many have already stated but I find that the suede aspect takes it from being too girly and cloying, to feminine and classic. You always know you've got a winner when you stash it in its box and spray it on "down days" - i'm actually using up lesser favoured perfumes currently as I don't want to waste this delightful perfume but I will bust it out in spring when I feel it is most appropriate. I also have a love for Pomegranate Noir which is more of a winter smell and Ginger Lily which is a more night time sexy fragrance...but for the most part it's Peony and Blush Suede all the way. Simply gorgeous.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Basil and Neroli

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.

Hair -Jo Malone -Lime Basil and Mandarine Shampoo and Conditioner

on 11/10/2017 8:36:00 AM

My all time favourite shampoo and conditioner. It left my hair smelling fresh even 2 days after washing it. The only downside i found about these products is that it is drying. What i do is that i apply hair oil after shampooing to prevent my hair from becoming dry.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -English Oak and Redcurrant

on 10/24/2017 12:27:00 PM

I first smelled this in a scent strip in the September 2017 issue of Harper`s Bazaar and was intrigued enough to sniff if and buy it at Sephora. The scent on the strip is somewhat different from the actual fragrance (so I would suggest that you try it from an in-store tester first) but I still love it. Sephora describes it as a floral -fruity fragrance, I category that I usually dislike, but I would call it a fresh green woody floral. It does remind me of fall with its hints of woods and spices; it`s light and fresh enough to wear during the day, in the office. It`s not a masterpiece but it is very good.

this is a nice scent but it does not last long at all!


Fragrances -Jo Malone -Star Magnolia Cologne

on 9/28/2017 6:33:00 PM

Magnolia is seemingly a perfect focus for a Jo Malone perfume. Its airy delicacy is well-suited to Jo Malone's sheer, light compositions. I'm kind of surprised there is no magnolia-based fragrance in the permanent line. If they ever do roll one out, though, I sincerely hope it is better composed than this limited edition Star Magnolia. There is not much magnolia in this cologne at all, and it's certainly not any kind of ode to the note. The composition to my nose reads mainly lemon and neroli. It's a pretty astringent combination and was sort of jarring when I expected a sweet, fragile magnolia note. It evolves into a slightly soapy musk that is unsurprising in this line, but also unexciting. Jo Malone could have done so much more with this release, and they seemed to be relying more on packaging and the limited edition nature to generate demand than quality of fragrance. I know several people who bought a bottle without even trying it because if you buy it in a Jo Malone boutique, they give you a pretty paper magnolia to go with it. To my mind, that's a lot of money to throw away on a paper magnolia if you don't like the fragrance.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -Nectarine Blossom and Honey

foto

Oh my goodness. This is a truly lovely representation of nectarine and honey. This is what I want to smell like. I knew as soon as I opened and sniffed the bottle. Its like I have been waiting for this fragrance my entire life. We're soulmates. It is serendipitous. Light, bright, juicy. This is a daytime fragrance. Smells like apricot shampoo, sunshine & cleanliness. I think if you wear this people will be nice to you, haha. The honey is not typical as in other frags. This honey does not have that gross urine tone. If you normally don't like honey fragrances, you might like this. The underlying base smells of quality. What a delicious, thoughtful addition to my library. I never want to be without & will likely purchase anything I can in this line. Absolute love.

Fragrances -Jo Malone -English Oak and Redcurrant

I got a sample of this (paper strip) out of a magazine so, no, I did not pay $65 for a 1 oz nor $135 for a 3.4 oz cologne. I like this autumnal/fall scent with a sweet (rosehip? redcurant? berry?) note and a woodsy background. It is pleasant but not my usual go-to. For me? Not worth the money to buy a full bottle. Great for this cool-crisp weather. NOT Christmassy - very "Halloween-y" for me.


Fragrances -Jo Malone -English Oak and Hazelnut

on 9/18/2017 8:11:00 AM

Got a sample of this in a magazine - so no, I did not shell out the $65 for the small or $135 for the large 3.4 oz. cologne. It's a sweet, yet autumnal, masculine (unisex) scent. It reads very much like Men's cologne. Appropriate for fall. i would not purchase this for myself - but MAYBE for a guy.


Fragrances -Jo Malone -Oud and Bergamot

on 9/6/2017 8:13:00 PM

oud is tricky in fragrance; i always thought of it as a luxury scent but sometimes it is taken too far (like with tom ford) or downplayed to the point of being overshadowed. jo malone gets a perfect balance; this is a nice smooth oud balanced with a true earl grey-esque bergamot. think of a cup of earl grey that's been over-steeped - this is it and it's amazing.

staying power is "better" than with traditional jo malone scents, but "better" still means lower staying power than a run-of-the-mill edp from literally any other brand just because the concentration is lower in their formula. this is why i have listed the price as being so high - there is no way out; you will need to reapply at least once during the day and therefore use more product.

this fragrance is unisex and i encourage women to shy away from the usual cheap shampoo fragrances and give this a try,

Lip Treatments -Jo Malone -Vitamin E Lip Conditioner

This is a thick balm that provides awesome hydration to the lips. Faint sweet fragrance is included but its nothing heavy. I can go all day without having to constantly re-apply. I hope this is never discontinued because it is definitely underrated. Not bad for a fragrance maker.


Fragrances -Jo Malone -Peony & Blush Suede

This was one of my first Jo Malone scents that I bought in the 30 ml bottle. When I was at the shop, the sales assistant was very nice and incredibly helpful! she spent 3 hours with me, showing me how to layer a body cream with a cologne, showing me the shower gels and how I can layer scents after using a shower gel in a different scent. There was so many colognes that I wanted to buy but I limited myself to two. I decided to buy the peony blush suede layered with orange blossom for an everyday sophisticated scent, I wore it for a year, using it everyday and I got a lot of compliments, people said it's so unique and when I told them it's Jo Malone they immediately went and bought for themselves as well. Its perfect layered with orange blossom and it's also beautiful just on its own however I bought recently from aqua de Parma their peony perfume and I like that one a lot better then the peony blush suede however the aqua de Parma is more expensive so it was a big splurge for me. I think the peony blush suede is a great scent for autumn and the beginning of winter.
