I absolutely love this perfume. I don't like scents that are too sweet or musky, and pretty much every scent out there changes on me,to the point where it's unrecognizable. But somehow this smells exactly the same on me as it does in the bottle. Everyone compliments me on it, even people who don't care much for perfume. It's now my signature scent =)

Clean, fresh, light, complex scent. This doesn't smell overly fruity on me. Although others say that it lacks staying power....it lasts all day on me. It's hard to explain...but I would definitely recommend trying it on to see if it works with your chemistry. I love it! :)

Nice name, but the scent is an utter disappointment for me. Wayyyyy too sweet and fruity.

This is truly an amazingly beautiful fragrance, adored by women both young and not-so-young. It's so fresh and juicy and pretty unique. I'd definitely wear it alone (forget layering) and I like that you can't readily identify many notes--it's much more complex than fragrances like Jo Malone's Orange Blossom or Red Roses. Definitely worth checking out.

I got a sample of this based on the reviews here. Jo Malone in the UK won't give out samples, so I had to pay £3 for a sample elsewhere.
I have worn it once. At first it reminded me of the peach flavoured perfume I used to wear from the Body Shop when I was 12 (I'm now 28) and it got worse from there. I got home in the evening and could still smell this peachy sweet scent on me. My boyfriend commented that I smelt "interesting" but not in a good way!
I suppose the name of the perfume should have given it away, however I thought that as it was Jo Malone it would have been a sophisticated version of nectarine blossom and honey, picking out more of the scent of blossom than fruit. I was wrong.

I will wear this perfume until the day I die..
I was looking through Selfridges' beauty department for about 4 hours before I found this.. and it was definately worth the wait.
I'm 18 and so I like fresh, clean scents that I can wear day or night.
It's such a signature smell, if you wear it once you can't help but put it on again. The composition is topnotes of honey, plum, nectarine and blackcurrant, and as it settles and warms on my skin I start to smell a muskier, darker honey scent. It honestly is good enough to eat and I can't stress enough how pleasant and summer it is.
My boyfriend prefers it WAYY more than my muskier perfumes - I wore Chanel Coco Mademoiselle in the day, and Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir (so sexy!) or Narciso Rordriguez Musc in the evenings. I would recommend buying a larger bottle, as they're prettier and better value for money - large retails for about £40 while smaller container is about £27!

I tried this fragrance at Saks a few weeks ago, and became obsessed with buying it. The day I sampled it, I kept smelling something delicious, and then would realize it was me! I couldn't remember what scent I had tried, so I had to go back and start sniffing.
Nectarine Blossom and Honey is a clean, watery scent, with the slightest undernotes of a fruity floral. If someone would describe this scent to me, I would never have tried it, b/c I dislike any fragrances that are fruity or floral, but this one is so subtle. It is not a stuffy, 'old lady' ,overpowering scent....it is bright, youthful, clean, crisp and fresh.
I did not give this a 5, b/c of the short lasting power. I will most likely shop for a layering product by Jo Malone, to help with the staying power. Luckily, I have the 1 oz. bottle, so I can keep it in my purse for a mid-day spritz.

This is an absolutely delicious smell - especially when combined with the matching body cream. Exactly how others described it - yummy and sweet without being cloying and nauseating (like pink sugar).
I just want to sniff it over and over again. Wish the bottle were less plain

I am absolutely in love with this fragrance. Its fruity and sweet scent isn't too annoying or overpowering, and definitely doesn't smell too much like the actual fruit. The packaging is great and the Jo Malone salespeople are fantastic. The only downside is that I wish it had greater lasting power. Other than that, its a really light, delicious scent.

I don't get any honey at all, I get a very green true blossom smell, the fresh kind of blossom not the sweet kind. It has some definite peach notes but overall it's not very warm at all, it's very a green and sparkling type of smell. I can pick up a little bit of a green tea note as well but not very strong.
My SO thinks it's not bad. Mum thinks it's terrible. I'm still undecided either way. This is one of those smells that you can't stop sniffing yourself to see how it smells *now* and each time I can detect something really lovely hiding under the surface but the green overtones don't seem to fade on me, I keep hoping the peach will come out.
I'm curious to try layering it with something warmer, perhaps vanilla or citrus based because I do really like the peachy notes but I'd like to tone down the green-ness a bit.

peach fragrances generally turn very synthetic and "chemical" smelling on me, even as high quality as the ingredients are for jo malone. so, this was a no go.

EDITED: I originally wrote that I *liked* this fragrance, but I had to upgrade it to *love*. This is just one of those scents that's always appropriate, in any situation--it's fresh, young, and clean, without ever being overwhelming. It lasts longer than you think it does...I'll get compliments on it hours after I thought it had disappeared. And people just seem to love it. I layer it with Annick Goutal's Honeysuckle, and I get at least three compliments a week. My friends hug me and say, "Wow, you smell so good!" and my husband just says, "Mmmmm" when he kisses my neck.

Nectarine Blossom & Honey by Jo Malone is very "luscious" scent. Jo Malone really captured the fragrance of ripe, yellow nectarines-- imagine cutting a nectarine a day before it goes overly ripe. I smell little to no honey in this fragrance-- it may just be enough to round out the fruity edges to the perfume.
My only real complaint about the fragrance is that it is somewhat Body Shop-ish. Nectarine Blossom smells like something that the Body Shop would sell-- only slightly cleaner in the presentation and slightly more expensive smelling. While pleasant and palatable, it is not terribly exotic, distinctive or sophisticated. (But there are days when you feel like being more casual like those lazy summer Sundays). I would pick up a smaller sized bottle for those types of days when the mood hits you. For women with limited fragrance budgets or for women who infrequently feel the need for fruity scents, peachy scents abound at places like Bath & Body Works/ Body Shop etc. You might try those scents first before going with Jo Malone.

Yes, this is an OK fragrance.
It is definitely easy to wear - so it has been designed - and it will encounter the taste of a lot of ladies, especially young ones.
I had a sample that I have been using for 4 or 5 times, so that I could experience the reactions on my skin.
In my opinion this smells "Young" and "Summer" and "carefree"; it feels fresh and "ready to go".
I also received compliments when wearing that (well, in the half hour after application, then it fades).
To my taste, however, it is too fruity and sweet (I like peach as a fruit but not in a scent), I feel like in a candy shop somewhat. Probably I am more on fresh/sharp/green/citrusy scents for summer.
Good for me that staying power is very weak - like almost all Jo Malone's - because I could not stand it all day long.

I always get compliments when I wear this. Smells fresh and pretty. Very Summery and cheerful. It lasts too. I will buy the big one next.

I don't think that a fragrance has to be terribly complex to be beautiful, and this happens to be one of those less-complicated, but still gorgeous, fragrances. It's definately fruity and bright, but it still smells clean and fresh- it vaguely reminds me of expensive shampoo for some reason. There is a definate peach-y note, but it's not at all cheap smelling; this is more of a luxurious peach. I said that I would repurchase, only because I do like it enough that I could potentially buy it again, but you do get a fair amount here, and the lasting power is great, so I won't be running out of it anytime soon =)

Very sweet and quite strong, almost last all day, work well if layer with vetyver(recommended), vintage gardenia and pomegranate noir but not alone...minus one lippie for its strength.

I had high hopes for this scent. All I can say, after testing it at the Jo malone store in Brook Street (London), thank god I didn't buy it! Even the SA said that it didn't smell that great on me! It's got this peachy fizz sort of smell which just made me feel sick by the end of the day. Which brings me onto the lasting power, on me is still going strong 10 hours later and only after 1 spritz on the wrist, hence the 2 marks. it seems that the only JM's which I like are Verbenas of provence (my near enough HG fragrance) and French lime blossom, which I mix with the verbenas. I think I'll stick with them, NB&H just isn't for me.

this smells nice and clean..and then turns into a peachy soft summer scent and it reminds me of the summer air at the beach with a hint of peach and the softness is from the drydown of the honey i guess, but a really nice scent and Robin thicke bought this as a wedding gift for his wife Jonetta Patton( singer and actress....and she said this is her favorite ...i like it.

I've tried it at the Jo Malone counter without great hope as I don't usually like the Jo Malone's but I have to admit that I like it quite enough.
Smelling it after a few minutes I told my friend: "It smells like London" which may sounds silly, but there's a reason for that: it smells almost exactly like Joop! All about Eve that I used to wear in London during summer many years ago, only better and simpler in a way.
That was about green apple and this one too in my opinion. I can't really smell the peach as really peach. It looks more like a raw and sweeter green aplle wuth citrus notes, very acidule at the beginning then it morphs to something more mellow, but still crisp and sweet at the same time.
But where is honey??? I can't smell any honey unless it's the bare sweetness than makes this scent less pungent.
It's typically a summer scent, not sexual or even explicitly sexy, but feminine all the way. Strange for vanilla-oriental-floral lover...
The staying power is really strong. I can still smell it on my sleeve after 2 days!
It's a happy frizzy fragrance with a tone, maybe what Clinique Happy should have been and never has.
Edit: I've tried it layered over Honeysuckle& Jasmine: wwoooowww!!!
