Fragrance seems to be my obsession recently. Every time I turn around I seem to be acquiring new ones. I received a coupon code/ gift card to Bergdorf Goodman in a Glossybox a month or so ago and I knew immediately that I wanted to pick up the Jo Malone Silk Blossom Cologne.
“Nature’s blooms at their most tempting. The nectarous, pink-fringed pompoms of Silk Blossom. Irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. Apricot-fresh with a touch of spice. Airy with clouds of powder-soft heliotrope, nestling on a bed of moss. Fruity and enticing.” – Jo Malone London
The first scent that hits me with this cologne is a fresh burst citrusy fruits. It quickly settles down into a powdery light floral fragrance. Once you are getting comfortable with the light and airy side of this cologne the bed of moss seductively peeks around the corner. I think that this scent is quite a neutral scent and can suit a lot of people. It also layers extremely well. I actually layer it with another favorite Jo Malone fragrance called Orange Blossom (reviewed here), which smells exactly like honeysuckles to me.
While purchasing Silk Blossom I had the opportunity to get a small bottle of Lime Basil & Mandarin, which is on the masculine side. I didn’t think I would love it but it really started speaking to me. “Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze. A modern classic.” It is one of those fragrances that is so unique that it could quickly become your signature scent. The brand claims it is theirs!
I also received to sample vials of Jo Malone London Colognes in Wild Bluebell and Blackberry & Bay. Blackberry & Bay is quite an energetic fragrance. It immediately had me sit up and take notice. “A burst of deep, tart blackberry juice, blending with the freshness of just-gathered bay and brambly woods. Vibrant and verdant.” Perfect description.
Wild Bluebell is by far one of my favorites, in fact I really sort of wish I would have purchased it. I don’t have a store with Jo Malone fragrances near me so I couldn’t sniff while ordering on the interwebz. “Vibrant sapphire blooms in a shaded woodland. The delicate sweetness of dewy bluebells suffused with lily of the valley and eglantine, and a luscious twist of persimmon. Mesmerising.” It is sweet, enchanting, and innocently sexy. I am in love.
As you may have guessed I love every Jo Malone fragrance I have sniffed from. They all appeal to different parts of me. They are all so fresh, so natural and soooooo beautiful. If you have them available near you definitely go check them out, your nose will thank you later!!!
