I’ve been a fan of Jo Malone since my first year at university. I got the old student loan, went shopping mad and fell in love with a scent called Lime Basil and Mandarin. I’ve used about three bottles of said cologne since, and have ventured into other scents too. Earl Grey and Cucumber is my second favourite, and each christmas I buy myself the mini collection.
But I have always come back to Lime Basil and Mandarin.
Currently the blogging community is in love with the new Wood Sage and Sea Salt cologne, so after hearing so much about it I headed off to the Covent Garden Boutique to give it a try.
It was love at first spritz.
I grew up in North Norfolk, and this reminds me of home so much. It’s Blakeney and Cromer in the autumn, It’s winter walks on the beach after a storm. Basically home in a bottle.
I thought Jo Malone had already achieved this in 2012 when they released the Blackberry and Bay scent (dog walking and apple and blackberry picking is what it reminded me of) but they have hit the nail on the head once more. Even the marketing is making me really look forward to having a break back home soon.
Right now I can afford to spend £40 on a new fragrance, what with my current job ending September 13th and my next job not secured yet.
So Jo Malone gets my inaugural Wishlist post, but rest assured, when I receive the first pay check of my next job, I’ll be popping down to Covent Garden, getting a free hand massage and buying myself a new autumn scent.
Whats your favourite Jo Malone scent, do you layer or are you a single cologne kinda person?
P.S – all the photos belong to Jo Malone.
