Jo Malone are known for mixing unexpected combinations of ingredients to create unique and exciting fragrances.
I always tend to change the fragrance I wear multiple times a year. I’ve recently got my hands on some from Jo Malone and I’m definitely on board with this. They’re a bit on the pricey side, so I originally intended on keeping them for special occasions. However, I’m obsessed! I’m wearing them every day of the week.
The two I have are Wood Sage & Sea Salt and Earl Grey & Cucumber. Both pretty similar to the style of fragrance I tend to go for, but they’re both subtly different that I can wear them whatever my mood. I like fragrances that are fresh, yet have distinctive undertones that set them apart. These two definitely fit the bill!
“Escape the everyday along the windswept shore.” That’s how Jo Malone describes this fragrance and I totally get that! I feel as though this smell is light and fresh. It smells crisp and almost musky, but with a modern twist. This is probably due to the Sea Salt; it brings it to a lighter place! The Wood Sage is almost eucalyptus-like and makes this fragrance blend uplifting.
This smells different once it’s on my skin: it’s relaxing and slightly botanical!
It’s said that if you stop smelling the fragrance you wear, it’s meant to be ‘the’ scent for you. This happens to me with Wood Sage & Sea Salt. I think I’ve worn this every day since I got it!
“A British tradition…afternoon tea.” That’s the inspiration behind this smell!
It’s a summery fragrance and gives me that traditional ‘English garden’ feel. Surprisingly, it’s not floral! I almost smell pollen; it’s clean and brings me home! The notes of Earl Grey are combined with Bergamot, which gives it a citrus and zesty scent. It’s got base notes of tobacco that give it a musky scent and make it quite elegant.
So there you go, my thoughts on my two new fragrances! If you go past a Jo Malone counter, definitely pop over and smell them! The 30ml retails for £42.00, but they’re definitely worth the investment.
What I love about Jo Malone is that you can layer your fragrances! When I mix these two together, it’s a completely different sensation. They blend well and I can definitely notice a vanilla undertone.
Until next time,
