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

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.

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.
