Santa was very kind to me this year and this is one of my very favourite gifts.
I have been a fan of Jo Malone fragrances for a long time and Santa finally started picking up my hints. There are a huge range of scents available at Jo Malone, twenty to be precise, and each is as unique as the last. Fusing natural plants, fruits and spices there is a scent that everyone will love. And mine is Blackberry and Bay.
Childhood memories of blackberry picking… stained lips, sticky palms. A burst of deep, tart blackberry juice, blending with the freshness of just-gathered bay and brambly woods. A vibrant and verdant fragrance.
Having never described perfume before I thought I’d leave it to the experts! However, what I can say is that the cologne is fruity but not too sweet. It’s definitely a mature perfume, one for the grown ups in the room. For me, this is heaven in a bottle and I implore you to go to a counter and have a smell!
The scent is really pungent (in the good way!) and lasts all day which is great seeing as its not the cheapest of perfumes… £39 for 30ml or £70 for 100ml is a little steep! The packaging is classy – an understated glass bottle with the signature white and black label. It feels like a quality product in your hand.
Overall, I adore this perfume and I am excited to try more of the Jo Malone scents, even if I do have to save up for a bit before I get them!
