A Little Bit Of Scent Indulgence - Jo Malone Style
Jo Malone is one of those brands I have always heard good things about but have never really checked out. Mostly because I always thought it was too overpriced and it was hyped up due to celebrity endorsement.
My curiosity finally got the better of me and I ordered a cologne in English Pear & Freesia. The cost for a 30ml bottle is a whopping £36 for such a relatively small amount compared to what you get with other brands. It came well packed in a large box with scented invoice and the fragrance box its self was wrapped in a black ribbon. Also included was 2 free sample fragrances chosen at checkout.
When I first sprayed it my immediate reaction was that it smelled like a posh floral wine. But to my surprise it warmed up on my skin quickly and the scent of the freesia started to come through along with patchouli. Well from that moment I fell in love! Its such a light warming fragrance perfect for everyday. I smile every time I smell it on my skin.
This cologne lasts most of the day on me. I put it on around 9am and I can still just about smell it at 5pm. I do sometimes re apply mid day only to have a more intense fragrance.
This scent I will definitely be repurchasing. It's a bit pricey for the size but definitely worth it. I can see what the hype is about now!
