I haven't posted anything fragrance related for some time now since I've been trying to finish my current perfume bottles. From the 6 bottles I had on hand, I used up 3 bottles already. So, I decided to get myself my first bottle of Jo Malone London Cologne.
I've heard so many good things about this fragrance and finally got the Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey. First off, let me just say that I really love the packaging. It's so simple yet so elegant at the same time. It's pretty straight forward, clean and no fuss. I typically don't go for these type of scents, since the smell can sometimes be too overwhelming or can be weird. Thus, I picked up this variant since it was the most light scented among the Jo Malone bunch.
Product Info from Jo Malone UK
London's Covent Garden early morning market. Succulent nectarine, peach and cassis and delicate spring flowers melt into the note of acacia honey. Sweet and delightfully playful.
Top Note: Cassis
Intensely juicy and ripe, it gives a crisp edge to the fragrance.
Heart Note: Acacia Honey
This deliciously honeyed note suffuses the scent with its smooth, sweet accents of beeswax and blossoms.
Base Note: Peach
A lusciously, juicy note, succulent with textural velvety softness.
At first I didn't really liked this scent, it took a lot of getting used to since it is quite uncommon. Especially for something that can be described as Fruity Floral. In my opinion, it first comes off as a fresh, almost green, earthy scent then goes on slightly fruity after a few minutes. Some expressed that it's too simple and linear but I thought otherwise.
My only complaint about this scent is it only lasts for about 4 hours on me. So, the longevity isn't that good compared to my other fragrances. But that's probably normal since this is a Cologne and not a Perfume. (Perfume bottles are oil based, thus have excellent longevity on my skin)
Overall, I'd rate this 3 out of 5 stars. It's quite pricey for what it is, considering it is a cologne and not a perfume. But I have to give it to Jo Malone in terms of packaging, this bottle will definitely turn heads when you put it in your vanity.
Until next time.
