As a little girl who grew up with a garden of wild flowers and probably to my Grandparents dismay a lot of weeds on occasion, the latest Jo Malone fragrance drop has a very special place in my heart. With no less than five carefully curated and entirely new colognes, each of which is presented in a bottle that is imprinted with the star notes of each scent, the Jo Malone Wild Flowers & Weeds collection is one you don’t want to let pass you by.
It’s not often in which I truly enjoy a full fragrance line-up of this size, normally I gravitate towards one or two scents and let the others bypass me but in this instance, I am truly considering dipping into my savings account and treating myself to the three colognes I don’t yet posses. Until that moment of madness, let me talk you through the two Jo Malone Wild Flowers & Weeds that I am lucky enough to call my own…
So a lot like a mother, I don’t technically have a favourite but if you twisted my arm (and I don’t suggest that you do, I went to Karate all of twice), I’d most likely (again under duress) admit that I do have a huge soft spot for Jo Cade & Cedarwood Cologne. It’s smoky, it’s woody, it’s sexy, it’s deep and despite all of these things it is understated. If you enjoy vanilla based fragrances but wish for something more than a wishy-washy, sugary-sweet confectionery spin of said note, this is the scent for you. A gentle mix of Cedarwood, Cade (Juniper to you and I) and Vanilla, make for a beautiful, soft, warm and ever so wearable fragrance.
If your fragrance tastes veer slightly more powdery, then I highly suggest Jo Malone Lupin & Patchouli Cologne; a whisper-soft concoction that manages to remain modern and fresh at the same time. Jo Malone Lupin & Patchouli Cologne is the fragrance equivalent of a stroll in the British countryside complete with lots of lush green scenery, fresh blooming flowers and the promise of a well-deserved glass of something cool at the end. A delightful mix of bright lupin flowers, rose, deep and unexpected patchouli with an uplifting dash of sweet, vibrant Mandarin.
