My First Step into Jo Malone London






Back in October, I went into my local Jo Malone for a consultation. I'd been in a few times previously for a good sniff but I always felt a little overwhelmed so I'd walk straight back out again. I found that a consultation helped so much as I was talked through the fragrances by what I would usually wear and also shown what ones were best for layering. I settled on Wood Sage & Sea Salt and Mimosa & Cardamom as they're both as beautiful on their own as they are when worn together. 

I didn't splurge there and then because I get shopper's guilt but fast forward to Christmas and my birthday when I unwrapped both scents I'd chosen during my consultation. Wood Sage & Sea Salt is fresh and light with top notes of Ambrette Seeds which exude sophistication, heart notes of Sea Salt which gives it, its airy feel and base notes of Sage. It immediately transports me back to bright sunny days by the sea. Mimosa & Cardamom is a little different, it's warm, spicy and instantly makes me feel a bit sassy. The top note of this is cardamom with heart notes of mimosa and base notes of tonka bean. Both fragrances are perfect for me and they're ones I'd buy again in a heartbeat. 

Jo Malone can be a bit pricey, a 30ml bottle is £42 but I honestly think they're worth it especially as a treat every now and then. I was given a sample of Earl Grey & Cucumber in one of the bags and I've fallen head over heels for it so I'll be buying that one next. 

What are your favourite Jo Malone fragrances? Have you tried any before?

  3. I didn't know you could have consultations!
    I think I may book myself one and they can help me find my fragrance!
    I really struggle with perfumes as a lot give me bad headaches!
    I've heard such great things about Jo Malone though so I definitely need to invest!

  4. I absolutely love Wood Sage & Sea Salt & also Lime, Basil & Mandarin. I was lucky enough to receive a couple of other JM perfumes at Christmas & love that they can be combined to create a new scent! xx

    1. I was! I felt like I couldn't justify buying them both for myself but they're so special to open up as presents xx

  6. I love a bit of Jo Malone. I love going for the free hand massages because you get to try out lots of different scents without splurging.

    My favourite scents are Pear & Freesia and for something a little different I love Blue Agave & Cacao! x
