It is a good summer scent in that it's fresh and minty, but it's also soapy on me and the combination of soapy and minty is a bit too much like an early morning pre-work routine of shower and toothpaste. It doesn't combine on my skin into something more than its parts, like many Jo Malones. This one is not for me.

Signature summer scent. This smells absolutely wonderful on my skin - perfectly balanced. Mmmmm...

This is a quirky aroma. I don't get much in the way of earl grey tea nor cucumber. I just get a clean and sharp fragrance. I prefer it an hour in, I find it a bit sharp when it first goes on. Not bad staying power but it might be just that it is new to my nose. My favourite Jo M scent, Lime Basil Mandarin, last minutes on me! It reminds me of a less abrasive perfume that I think is called Molecule 01, which is supposed to send people wild. It didn't, it just gave me a headache and I gave it away! But I do like this JM one, clean, fresh and pure. UPDATED - I grew to dislike this very quickly. Fickle old me! Too sharp and acidic. Managed to sell on Ebay!

I'm a perfume addict and love Jo Malone London Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne. This cologne is rather pricey ($120 + tax for 3.4 fl oz), but I couldn't resist!! This particular scent is light (fresh and sweet floral smell) and it lingers for awhile after using 2 - 3 sprays. The bottle is simple yet elegant and sophisticated. I bought it from Nordstrom and if you want a smaller size, they do sell a 1 fl oz bottle ($60 + tax). If you happen to buy multiple Jo Malone perfumes, you can mix and match the smells to produce another smell (they provide a handout that you can follow/reference). Jo Malone has a good selection of scents and different products (candle, diffuser, room spray, etc.) to explore.

I understand there are other perfumes that smell amazing and are cheaper, but I would definitely recommend the Jo Malone collection. I will be repurchasing this specific scent once I run out!

Truly a unique scent. I received this as a sample when I bought Peony & Blush Suede and they actually layer together beautifully! I think i may purchase a full size to continue mixing with the other scents. It's clean but not floral or citrusy. Very balanced.

I think I just found my signature scent!

Jo Malone's Earl Grey scent is sophisticated, elegant, and unique. I don't think any other perfume in the market carries the same scent. It smells exactly like earl grey tea, but with a refreshing top note and a powdery dry off. I would recommend this fragrance for daily wear and in business environment. And I layer it with the Jo Malone's Red Roses scent.

My only complaint is that the sillage is quite poor (one lippy off). I need to re-apply the cologne every 3-4 hours. However, the smell lasts longer if you spray it on your clothes or scarves.

I must have sprayed all the Jo Malone fragrances on me at one point in an attempt to find one that I like. When I heard that Jo Malone brought back the limited-edition Earl Grey and Cucumber as a permanent offering, I tried it. It's my favorite of all the Jo Malone fragrances, but that's not saying much, since I don't like any other JM fragrance I've tried. The Earl Grey and Cucumber has the sharp, citrusy note of Bergamot that makes Earl Grey tea so distinctive, but I don't get any of the cucumber that I hoped would lighten and balance it out. This smells like the plethora of green tea fragrances that were popular in the Nineties. I like it and will wear it (I bought a full-sized bottle for $110 so I'd better wear it!), but I don't know that I'd buy it again.

I love this. At first when this 'tea line' came out I missed buying the Earl Grey and Cucumber. In fact I don't even remember trying it. I was too obsessed with the Sweet Milk scent. Then the whole line was gone; unavailable except on Ebay for near twice the original cost - insanity. I love it but I'm not willing to pay MORE than the original retail price! Anyway..back to this. I ordered a small decant of this and became enamoured with it. Honestly I don't think it smells like earl grey tea OR cucumber but I just love it. Nieman's just brought this line back on their website (except for the sweet milk, darnit!). I just placed an order for 2 bottles of this. Great stuff!

I have been searching all summer for a light, crisp scent with lasting power. Not easy. I wanted something that wasn't flowery or citrusy and this is it! Love it. Feminine to me (reviews below say unisex or masculine but I don't get that), and clean without being soapy. I also love that it can layer with my fave Jo Malone, Honey & nectarine. It gives it a nice fresh update and creates my own signature scent :) I have already received numerous compliments!

This fragrance was a favorite of mine many moons ago, but when I ran out I found it was discontinued. Evidently late last year./early this year it was brought back, and I was thrilled. I immediately ran out and bought a bottle, and I still say it is amazing. Light and crisp, more of a unisex scent and not the least bit cloying. I am no perfume expert, but I do know what I like, and this is it! On top of it all, I'm not allergic (a feat in and of itself!). I just hope JM keeps it around this time!
