the best of | jo malone colognes

As far as fragrance is concerned, Jo Malone have it nailed. Every scent is the ultimate in luxury; from the delicate glass bottles down to the carefully constructed layers and notes in each cologne. Ever since I owned my first Wild Fig & Cassis bottle, I've never even looked twice at any other brand. 

The Earl Grey & Cucumber scent is the freshness and lightness of a Spring day in a bottle, think of a fancy afternoon tea on the lawn of a country manor. I sometimes like to spray this on my pillows if I'm having a bit of a duvet day as I find the scent to be both uplifting and relaxing whilst being delicate and fresh.

154 reminds me very much of the kind of scent that you'd find from Chanel; it's a beautiful blend of wood, spice and musk that I could imagine anyone in need of a sophisticated and grown up scent absolutely loving. It's a little too much on the deep side of scents for me as I'm only just in my 20's, but I know that once I hit my 30's and onwards it would be perfect. My mum wears this one every day and has decided that she now never wants to wear any other scent.

My all time favourite, Wild Fig & Cassis. The telling sign of when you've found your absolute favourite fragrance is when you want it in candle, body cream and bath oil form, plus happily handing over £82(!) for the full sized version. It's one of those scents that you almost don't want anyone else knowing about because it's become your signature fragrance and you want to keep it that way. Well, here I am telling you all that this is well and truly the one.

Next on my list to try are Pomegranate Noir (I loved the candle version) and perhaps Blackberry and Bay too. Do let me know if you've ever tried Jo Malone, and if so, what your favourite scents are. 


  1. I've always wanted to try Earl Grey and Cucumber - it sounds lovely!


  2. I really want to try either the Earl Grey and Cucumber scent or the Wood Sage and Sea Salt scent. I just can't justify paying so much for a fragrance though. Need them in my life though. X


  3. I really like the sea salt one...not sure what is named fully! xx

  4. I love their Blue Agava and Cacao, the 154 my boyfriend actually wears. I love how they are unisex and i could always steal a squirt of his too.

  5. I have never tried any of it but upon reading reviews about it then I guess its time. I think I would go for the Wild fig and Casis. It sounds a good choice!
