My First Jo Malone Fragrance

June 5, 2016

There have been many a time I’ve popped into Jo Malone and swooned over everything. For me this brand gets everything perfect, from the simplistic packaging and luxury bags, I just love it and feel like it adds even more luxury to the experience. There is something about a nice fragrance that makes me feel special, its the finishing touch to any beauty routine so it’s pretty important. For years I have wanted the Peony and Blush Suede Cologne but never got round to purchasing it, my mum went on holiday and kindly picked this up for me as a “well done for surviving uni” present.

Honestly at first I was unsure whether to write this post as I’m pretty pants at giving descriptions of the notes, you can find them all on the website anyway here, but I just had to throw in my two cents with this. Like all my perfumes this is a floral with a twist, it isn’t over powering or garish but its a floral with a hint of sweetness. I wouldn’t say this is too girly or typical either, its just a really lovely fresh and wearable summer scent. The longevity is pretty good on me, I often struggle with how long perfumes last on my skin, so to increase their staying power I use a body oil on my neck before applying this and that really does the trick. I’m looking forward to purchasing some more scents from Jo Malone to layer this with this the winter months.

If you have had your eye on Jo Malone then I wouldn’t hesitate, such a gorgeous brand with fabulous fragrances, I’m seriously impressed!

Jo Malone is my favourite, but I can rarely buy it because it is so expensive but such a luxury and pleasure to own. I currently have the wood sage and sea salt fragrance and the intense velvet rose and oud, I have this scent in candle form! Makes my room smell so relaxing. My boyfriend is always stealing my wood sage and sea salt!

Jodie Moores says:

Exactly, I've seen a lot about Wood Sage and Sea Salt. I really love the look of the candles too, haha you know it's good when your boyfriends likes it! Thank you for commenting xxx

I treated myself to this same one back in December and it's incredible. I don't wear it often because I want to make it last – it's a shame it's so pricey, but kinda' worth it

Jodie Moores says:

I agree it is a shame, my mum managed to get this from the airport saving around ยฃ9 which made a massive difference! I love saving this for special occasions makes it feel even more special xx

Caroline Malone says:

I really want to try out and pick myself up a jo malone fragrance, though it is a little overwhelming when I go into the shop, so at least now I have one scent to look out for! Maybe my Mum could kindly get me a "well done for surviving uni" perfume!

Jodie Moores says:

I've only tried Peony and Blush suede because of how over whelming the store is! I went off online reviews. Ahh I had a pretty bad last year of uni so she felt bad I think, it is my graduation gift really ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

Charlotte Emily says:

I am always smelling the beautiful perfumes whenever I pass a Jo Malone store or counter but can never treat myself to one. This has definitely urged me to – this scent sounds right up my street! Thank you for sharing lovely xxLove Char

Jodie Moores says:

I know they are incredibly expensive and a real luxury, I feel so lucky! It is a really lovely scent, picking it up from duty free really makes a difference to the price. Thank you for commenting lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

I have the Peony and Blush Suede and love it for this time of year, it's so fresh and floral. It's also great paired up with Wood Sage and Sea Salt for some added dimension xxAmanda |
