I'm always on a quest for fresh, green, citrusy scents. Jo Malone Grapefruit is my favorite fragrance, so I decided to get samples of their other citrus-based colognes. When first spritzed, Nectarine Blossom and Honey seems right up my alley, but then it dries down to a very sweet, nauseating soap scent that is isn't citrus at all. Really, it smells just like a Bath & Body Works hand soap. Is it pretty light and doesn't last long, but that's actually a plus with this fragrance.

This is a beautiful and unusual scent that complex while being light and airy. My biggest complaint is that it wears out extremely quickly. I even will sometimes layer it with the matching lotion, and even then at the end of the day I can't smell it. For a perfume as expensive as this one is, I'm frustrated that it doesn't last. Again though, it's quite unusual and smells very clean and fresh.

This is a lovely fragrance with the initial scent of sweet peach blossom, delicate nectarine and white flowers. This is airy and delicate, young and inoffensive. I don't smell any honey at all but after a while there is an almost woody scent coming through which gives it some depth. I can't help feeling that this has almost a vintage feel to it. I probably would buy a full size of this after I have used up my sample size.
From Fragrantica: 'Top notes are green notes, black currant and petitgrain; middle notes are nectarine and black locust; base notes are vetiver, peach and plum.'

It sounded sweet and flowery, so I decided to try it. Unfortunately, on me, it went straight into a sugary, candy smell. I was looking for something light and fresh, so this wasn't right for me.

I really regretted spraying this, especially after having just showered. I almost took another shower after smelling this perfume. It was horrible and sickeningly sweet. It made me feel very nauseous with every whiff. Any shampoo smells better than this unfortunately. It felt very stale, like those fragrance oils from the body shop a long time ago. The smell was very cheap and it was embarrassing to smell like this perfume. Very flat and unsophisticated. Not at all clean smelling at all. Overwhelming scent. A salesgirl had it on too and it just smelled old and dirty.

I have the big bottle. Very nice warm citrusy sweet fragrance, too bad it doesn't last long on me- 2hrs I think so I spray on my clothes, which is too excessive as it costs $190 here in SG

To put it very simply - this is an amazing smelling perfume. It doesn't last all day (except on clothing) but that's fine with me as I don't wear perfume everyday. I couldn't tell you the different notes of smells (I guess my nose isn't refined) but it is beautiful and I received many compliments. Will be purchasing again!

I have to be honest that Jo Malone's products are sky high expensive.
Overall, you need time to build up the love to their scents.
When I first tried on their perfumes, none of those did catch my nose.
Anyway, Nectarine Blossom and Honey can be used throughout the year.
It is a sweet, fruit and fresh scent and it's for daily use. Basically, it smells natural and it last long, surprisingly.
I always combine this scent with the limited edition scent called "ginger biscuits". It smells yummy.

I received one of Neiman Marcus' scent catalogs and out of sheer boredom opened the little ( and I find *stingy* ) towelette thingies they insert into those catalogs. One of the first was Nectarine Blossom and Honey .
It's beautiful ! Remember I tried it out of sheer boredom and not expecting anything much at all ( not a fan of Jo Malone's watery liquids .... )
The peachy nectarine note is sublimey delicious and then in comes a gorgeous * clean* honey note. This scent is nearly photo realistic when it comes to the first whiff of stone fruit. The lasting power is pretty good. The swipes of that scented towelette thingie lasted on my skin for several hours and the towelette smelt wonderful for days.
I would buy this if you love peach /nectarine notes. It is one of the best uncomplicated happy stone fruit scents out there.
Yes it reminds me a little of the Fuzzy Peach by The Body Shop but as that is not made any longer.... this is it. Lovely.
I cannot stand Jo Malone bottles- they are very boring . Either too big or too little ( 30 mls.... ) All the same , utilitarian...scent presentation should be * alittle * glamorous * don't you think , Estee Lauder Group ???!
I once read somewhere how Jo Malone was the Martha Stewart of the fragrance world - - it stuck in my head because it rings fairly true to me .

Nectarine Blossom and Honey is a stunningly beautiful, sweet fragrance. It's the perfect warm weather scent. If you like fruity florals like the Escada limited editions (Taj Sunset, Sexi Graffiti, etc) you'll love NBH. At first spritz I knew I loved it and also recognized it smelled almost identical to one of my favorite fragrances of all time, Bond no 9 Madison Square Park. Seriously, these could pass for the same fragrance, but MSP is a tad greener and NBH is a tad more on the sweeter side. Longevity of NBH is fair at about 3-4 hours before reapplication. I strongly recommend this fragrance for anyone wanting a sweet summer scent. If I ever run out of MSP, I'll probably get NBH as it is at a lower price point, but no need for me to do that now. I'll continue to enjoy my sample and try to see how in blends with other Jo Malone fragrances.
