Whenever I hear a celebrity has launched a fragrance, I secretly let out a little sigh. But for some reason, when I heard about the new Dermot O’Leary Earl Grey and Sandalwood, I let out a sigh of relief.
Just from the name of it, I knew I’d love it. I’ve previously owned the Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber, and had a number of fragrances that include notes of Sandalwood, so I knew this was a match made in heaven.
It’s a light, fresh scent that is perfect for summer. Earl grey and bergamot open up the fragrance to give it some top notes that are crisp and citrusy. This is then followed with base notes of sandalwood and cardamom to ground the fragrance and give it a warmer tone.
The scent itself isn’t obnoxious. It’s honestly just a clean, inoffensive fragrance that I’m sure every guy will adore. For me it’s going to become my summer daytime scent. It’s probably a bit too light for the night, but it’s perfect for through the day.
It reminds me of a fragrance I’d expect Dior to create, so when you pair this with it’s £22 price point, it’s a no-brainer. Especially when you get 100ml for this price.
After giving this scent a go, it’s truly opened my eyes and makes me want to try his other scents. Dermot has already released two scents with M&S, so I’ve got a bit of catching up to do, but I’m sure they’ll be worth it. There’s even a grooming range which I really need to give a go. Check out the full Dermot O’Leary on M&S here.
