I feel so super fancy writing this post right now because I never thought I would be the type of lass that would comfortably be able to rock a Jo Malone fragrance, sorry "cologne". I used to watch YouTubers like Alix from ICovetThee wax poetic about numerous Jo Malone products and always aspired to exude the same level of sophistication that she always displayed on her YouTube channel. Like most, I am incredibly picky when it comes to fragrances. I prefer scents that are fresh and light but also long lasting. I spent a good hour in duty free en route to New York to find a good fragrance. I had just watched a Kathleen Lights Favourites video where she discussed a perfume she loved because it reminded her of her time in Vegas. Scent is of course closely linked to memory so I wanted to find a fragrance I could wear throughout my time in America that would trigger memories of the epic trip when I returned to my dump of a hometown. I was torn between quite a few scents, I always find lavender notes really soothing and comforting but ultimately the Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne (£44/£88) is the one I decided on and I have no regrets. It is perfect.
On the Jo Malone site it is lovingly described as "London's Covent Garden early morning market. Succulent nectarine, peach and cassis and delicate spring flowers melt into the note of acacia honey. Sweet and delightfully playful." It is classed as being a fruity yet floral scent with the aroma of peaches and spring flowers encased in warm honey. I wish I could eat it. I think it smells gorgeous and is not too heavy, perfect all year round for me but especially suited to the transition into Spring. Now that it is March the world is looking a little brighter and a few spritzes of this makes me feel confident. It is oh so expensive, this little tiny bottle cost a whopping £44. Yes, you heard right my friends, £44 for 30ml and if you're feeling cash splashy then you can get the 100ml for £88.
The problem with this scent is that you can't overdo it, so I often spray it six times which is wasteful but I don't wear it every day. I spray it on days when I am feeling a little less than or couldn't be bothered to shower. We're all friends here. I hope you like my review, I also hope it wasn't obvious that I have no clue what I am talking about when it comes to fragrances because I have literally owned 3 in my entire 22 years of being. That being said, I would love to know what scents you are drawn to and what your favourite perfume/fragrance/cologne is etc. So please leave me a comment, and don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' my loves. Apologies for the delay between posts, it was completely unintentional. I just had a few scheduling issues. Thank you. Take care.
