My First Experience Of Jo Malone Fragrances

My First Experience Of Jo Malone Fragrances

Jo Malone seems to be a blogger’s best friend, most images I see have a beautiful crisp bottle displayed, and many rave about them as being the perfume of choice. I’ve always seen their stand in airports or Selfridges and thought I should really check them out but then thought otherwise at the expense. This all changed last month when I was in Gatwick. 

I had already decided I was going to purchase one small 30ml perfume because let’s face it the names of the scents alone were enough to draw me and my citrus loving self in. I was on my way to New York and already been pulled into the mindset of throwing money at everything I even vaguely wanted I didn’t leave with just one Jo Malone perfume, I left with two. Impulse purchases are not very me but I couldn’t say no to either Nectarine Blossom and Honey or Lime Basil and Mandarin after spritzing them around.

Thinking I’d come back from holiday, take off my rose tinted glasses and realise that I shouldn’t have spent £80 on two perfumes when I have loads already I was pleasantly surprised to find myself reaching for them on almost a daily basis. As the scents are fruity and light I find them perfect for the summer time and due to the ingredients the scent lasts a long time when spritzed on. I know how annoyed I get when I spray perfume and half an hour later I can barely smell it unless I press my nose to my wrist (making you look a little odd).

While I’d love to own the entire collection and fill my dressing table with all the pretty scents it realistically won’t happen but I’m glad I made that little splurge to see what all the fuss is about.

Have you ever tried a Jo Malone fragrance?

    I have looked at these myself on several occasions and just could not choose which one.
    They actually stay aromatic all day? I seem to have the trouble of spritzing my perfume and is disappears.
    Might look into these more then 🙂

    I havnt been tempted much by Jo malone mainly due to the price tags. My friend loves them tho and raves about the candles!

    I have heard so many good things about Jo Malone products unfortunately for me they aren’t in my price bracket (booooo!!)

    Jo Malone & Diptyque seem to go hand in hand. I’ve never tried Jo Malone fragrances, the hype just hasn’t caught me but the Lime, Basil & Mandarin sounds gorgeous xo

    I absolutely love Jo Malone scents – so unique and so organic. If they weren’t so expensive, I would stock up the entire range ;))

    Ahhh I LOVE Jo Malone but they are definitely too expensive for me to buy regularly, and like you I too have SO many perfumes already!

    I do like the fragrances and think they make a lovely gift, but they are on the expensive side x

  19. August 15, 2016 / 8:03 pm

    Yes I love their fragrances but for me its a one time treat like you said they are very expensive!

  20. August 16, 2016 / 9:39 am

    I have never tried these purfumes but they sound lovely. I don’t think I would be spending quite that much on purfumes, especially when going on holiday! But I would probably try one of them

  21. August 16, 2016 / 10:10 am

    No I am yet to try any of the fragrances but I really want to.

  22. August 16, 2016 / 12:04 pm

    We’ve only tried the scented candles and they are divine, can’t afford the big bottles! xx

  23. August 16, 2016 / 3:24 pm

    Perfumes are wasted on me, I have no sense of smell!

  24. August 16, 2016 / 6:09 pm

    I’ve never tried them but I totally love their names. I bet they are truly amazing.

    Sometimes it’s better to tease ourselves with one or two of a range, it keeps the desire alive for more! Those scents small heavenly. Nectarine blossom and honey sound fresh yet warming and the lime basil and mandarin: crisp, clean, with a hint of spice. I’m jealous of you right now!
