Earlier Last week I had the pleasure of having coffee with a member of the Jo Malone executive team , and we discussed the latest releases coming out this Spring
Jo Malone has always been a favourite brand of mine, specifically with their exquisite superior smelling and branded candles. Not only do all of their scents smell divine, but their product packaging is so elegant and classy you almost never want to use the product and just have it on display!
This was the First scent we discussed, as they are offering this Limited Edition Cologne in
Without even smelling the scent I already knew I wanted this fragrance , the product packaging sold me instantly. The lime green lid and the black and white polkadots are a huge change for the brand aesthetic as they tend to keep their packaging very simple and classic. What’s great is that ever year when they create a limited edition they can have a bit of fun with the packaging and possibly reach a larger or younger target demographic.
Petal pop. Spring bursts into pristine white blossoms. soon to become succulent nashi fruit
if someone could ask me what my ideal fragrance would be I would say something fruity and tropical , I always love to smell like a fruity vacation .
The sweetness of pear with a crisp bite of apple. Bright mouth watering Lemon. Vivid Juices Streaming over nashi Blossom , Voluptuous rose and softest white musk. In a unique bottle inspired by the nashi flower. Playful. Radiant . Efflorescent.
the great thing about Jo Malone , is that all of the fragrances are unisex and can be combined! It’s recommended to layer the Nashi Blossom with their Nectarine Blossom & Honey for an overall fruity floral scent. or if you are going for something a little less tropical , you can layer it over Dark Amber & Ginger Lily for a woody Floral Fragrance.
BLACK CEDARWOOD AND JUNIPER
This fragrance has a modern urban scent, yet also seductive. It is considered to be a dark scent as it emulates a carnal touch of cumin, chilli leaves and dark cedarwood.
It’s reccomended to layer this fragrance with the Lime Basil & Mandarin for a fresh woody fragrance with a citrus twist. Alternatively you coul combine this scent with the Wood Sage & Sea Salt for an aromatic woody fragrance spirited with sea salt and jupiter.
Personally I found the scent to be bit to strong for my personal taste , I much prefer the subtle classic rosy scents. This scent however , although unisex , I feel will better suit a male.
This scent will be released in June 2016
