Believe me no one thinks Jo Malone products are just an utter luxury indulgence more than me! The perfumes are crazy expensive, let’s be honest a bar of soap is crazy expensive! But the products and scents are just beautiful. My absolute favourite Jo Malone fragrance is English Pear and Freesia.
Jo Malone say ‘The essence of autumn. The sensuous freshness of just-ripe pears is wrapped in a bouquet of white freesias, and mellowed by amber, patchouli and woods. Luscious and golden. A burst of enticing scent.’ To me this scent is very distinctive, it doesn’t smell like any other perfume, and you can definitely tell when someone is wearing this scent, or indeed any Jo Malone scent. It smells a little like roses in addition to delicate freesia and fruity pear.
The perfume (£42 for a little bottle) I wore exclusively for a holiday with my husband to Florida. It has such happy memories for me, especially as I suspected I was pregnant with my son at the time.
The candle (£42 although a little travel version is available) is just beautiful! It’s s total luxury to spend this kind of money on a flipping candle! I definitely only light it on special occasions! It fabulous to use the whole range while you are getting ready for a night out and have this candle flickering on your dressing table. Ridiculous luxury!
The soap (£14) shouldn’t be overlooked! The only vaguely affordable part of the range is just as luxurious as the rest. It scents your skin and entire bathroom beautifully. It lathers really well and is non drying. It would make a great little gift for a great friend!
The hand and body wash (£28) I think is the star product here. I use as a hand wash exclusively (only for me!) and as a shower gel for a night out. The scent lasts for ages on my hands, it’s just strong enough that you notice it throughout the day.
Loves – beautifully scented, I just adore this scent and these products
Not so Loves – the price is just extauionate, a serious luxury investment!
Overall – I love to show off with a Jo Malone candle as a centrepiece to a beautifully dressed dinner table. If I could afford a candle, diffuser and room spray for every room in my house, I would!
