Wood Sage and Sea Salt is a beautifully unique fragrance. It smells salty and fresh. It reminds me of a breezy day at the ocean. I especially love how well this fragrance layers with others, particularly Jo Malone’s Red Roses as well as Wild Bluebell. It transforms this seaside scent into something even more lovely and memorable. It is a scent that can be worn during any season. The bottle is timeless and elegant. I wish the price tag wasn’t quite so steep, but that is to be expected with a very high quality product. Wood Sage and Sea Salt has become a staple beauty product in my fragrance collection.

Pros:
- good sweet grapefruit scent that dries down to hints of sage
- may be appropriate for office where cubicles are the norm, for church, or dinner (does not overpower with food scents)

Cons:
- pricey for poor longevity
- longevity is only two hours before it is nose-to-wrist

One spray on me:
Longevity: 2 hours then skin scent
Sillage: barely arm's length
Rating: 4/5

Jo Malone is not known for longevity or sillage which could be good or bad, depending on your need. This one is pretty and inoffensive. As soon as I sprayed it though, my eyes lit up as I enjoyed the soft sweet citrus rivalling lily of the valley type citrus scents. My lips could not stop smiling as I sniffed and huffed THAT spot on my wrist. Yummy! The only holdback for me is the price. $100 for 30ml?? It is very pretty but not original and one I expect to find easily at Target, Walmart or drugstores.

I love this with its herbal, light woody salty scent. I actually wear this for bed in warmer months as it has a neutral, inoffensive smell and it doesn’t overpower or overwhelm when worn and it relaxes me. The downside of this perfume is that it doesn’t last long as it is a cologne and it is unbelievably expensive for a scent that doesn’t last longer than two hours on my skin but on my clothes it lasts a little longer. Definitely great for layering and I tend to pair this with Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay, Peony & Blush Suede and JHAG Not a Perfume to strengthen its longevity. Overall a great scent and despite the price I will definitely repurchase once my bottle is replenished.

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.

I adore this fragrance, but my big gripe is that it fades really quickly. For the price this should last a full day.

Lovely fragrance for the spring & summer months. I love the wood, musk & sage, it's such a sophisticated fresh scent! Longevity and sillage are fine, I can still smell hints of it after many hours, even though it's a cologne. Jo Malone fragrances never disappoint!

Heavenly -- just clean and fresh and breezy. I wear this layered with Jo Malone Grapefruit or Orange Blossom, and it adds so much depth and complexity that I prefer the combination over any one of the 3 alone, but this is the common denominator.

$65 for 30 ml in a pretty glass bottle at Nordstrom.

As usual, i didn't get the same notes as the other reviewers. I was specifically looking for a sea water/ sea salt fragrance when I sampled this and instead of sea salt or wood, or even sage, this was strangely super sweet. It felt like the ambrette, which I normally adore, took over completely and buried any other notes.

A sweet fragrance board gal sent me the perfume and body creme of this and I'm in love! I didn't expect to love this so much but it's amazing! You can smell the sea salt and a bit of bright citrus as well as the woody-ness. Such a beautiful multi-faceted perfume. This is what I wanted Bobbi's Beach to smell like instead of smelling so synthetic. You breathe Wood Sage and Sea Salt in and really feel like you're sitting with your toes in the sand. The perfect warm weather scent. I will be purchasing a full size bottle.

This is such a clean fresh scent yet it's neither soapy nor citrus. It's woody, green, herbal, and salty. The sea salt is my favorite part. I live close to a beach and have always loved the scent of ocean air. I also like woody scents, so this is a natural win for me.

Nicely unisex, it can safely be worn by men as well as women. There's nothing girly in it. Jo Malone's fragrances unfortunately lack strength, so don't expect much sillage. But on the plus side, this is breezy and light and doesn't offend. You'll just smell fresh and clean.

I happen to enjoy the simplicity of the colognes. Typically they pair two scents and then if I want something complex I have the fun of layering to create something of my own. I like the control I have in Jo's philosophy of fragrance combining. Frequently with other fragrances that have a dizzying myriad of smells blended together, I find that I would like the perfume except for the lavender, or I would like the perfume except for the cardamom in it. With Jo it's easier to create something you like, without the notes you don't. The downside is, of course, the lack of longevity. They don't cling to the skin all day with the bold tenacity you get from something like Bond No. 9. The individual colognes may be too simple for some, but I like the minimalism and the flexibility they offer. However, buying two or three fragrances to combine can easily set you back two or three hundred bucks. For the price, it would be nice to get more staying power.

I really love the Wood Sage and Sea Salt Body & Hand Wash. I have never felt so clean and cool after a shower as when using this gel. It's as if I have surfed for an hour or two, with the sea salt lingering on my skin after I towel off, as a lovely breeze wafts the scent of sage toward me.

This is an easy one to combine. It mingles well with Lime Basil and Mandarin and with Grapefruit. You can also freshen any gourmand with this. I haven't been thrilled with all the Jo Malones, but there are some standouts in the line and this is a good addition. Blackberry and Bay is a triumph as well. All the scents I've mentioned seem to appeal to both sexes. If you're not a cologne person, Wood Sage and Sea Salt's corresponding bath products are friendly choices to stock in a guest bathroom, especially to evoke the feeling of walking through trees and flowering shrubs near a beach.
