Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I've searched high and low and haven't found a dedicated Jo Malone thread, but knowing how many of us enjoy JM products I though it'd be nice to have a place where we can share upcoming news and our favorites.

 

My all time favorite is Blue Agava and Cacao, followed by Peony Blush Suede.

I just picked up Basil and Neroli, which to my nose is a dead ringer for Bobbi Brown Beach! As I love Beach, I think this fragrance is going to be a new fave come the spring. It is different enough from Lime, Basil, Neroli to justify owning both in my collection. Basil and Neroli emphasizes the Neroli while LBM is heavy on the basil and lime, which give it a more herbal edge.

I know that this is a Jo Malone thread but people shouldn't forget about the Jo Loves fragrance house either.  It was opened by Jo Malone after she left Estee Lauder (who now own Jo Malone fragrances).  I would say it is a throwback to more of the original Jo Malone fragrances.  I really like some of the Jo Loves fragrances like No 42 Flowershop, Pomelo, White Rose and Lemon Leaves, Red Truffle 21, etc.  If you like Jo Malone, check out Jo Loves also Smiley Happy

@Cloudburst2000 could you let me know how you sampled them?

I bought their Fragrance Discovery Gift Experience about a year ago.  Got a voucher with the set for a full-sized bottle of my favorite perfume.  I got Red Truffle 21.  I have added No 42 Flowershop and White Rose and Lemon Leaves since then.  You can also buy samples from sites like Surrender to Chance.  I use Surrender to Chance to test out hard to find or really expensive fragrances that you can't get free samples of.

Thank you for your answer! STC (nor TPC or Luckyscent) no longer seems to carry them Smiley Sad Jo Loves direct has started selling to the US but I was wondering if I could just sample a few scents without committing to a full bottle.

You might want to contact Jo Loves.  I found them super helpful and friendly when I had questions about my order.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I love layering Mimosa & Cardamom with Blackberry & Bay, so heavenly!

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Unsure if this is coming here but thought I'd post anyway...

  • Blue Hyacinth – Intoxicating bold blue hyacinth warmed by the sun entwined with the vibrancy of garden geraniums and woody vetiver
  • Garden Lilies – The scent of dawn at the lily pond captured with effervescent water lilies, dewy green sap and lush ylang enhanced with white musk and a wisp of vanilla
  • Leather & Artemisia – The striking green facets of anise-tinged absinthe blend with aromatic artemisia, soft orriswood and the deep richness of leather enhanced by the amber woody notes of Cypriol
  • Tabacco & Mandarin – Vibrant mandarin and herbaceous sage sweetened with the warm elegance of beeswax and sweet pipe tobacco
  • Whisky & Cedarwood – An enigmatic blend of fine whisky and opulent roses edged with spicy pimento, warm cedarwood and an intriguing accord of waxy wooden floors

Oh there goes my $$$$s......

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Tobacco and Mandarin sounds intriguing and complex! I'd love to try that one. 

 

When it comes to fragrances that smell like whisky, I'm always worried that I smell like I just walked out of a bar, like either I spilled my drink all over myself (which happens often...) or I drank so much that the alcohol smell is seeping from my skin. Either way, I would be paranoid all day if I wore a whisky fragrance to work. 😂

I love boozy scents, like History of Parfums 1899, Elizabeth and James Bourbon, Replica Jazz Club, and SJP Stash, which translate into more of a smoky vibe on the skin rather than a rough night out at the club vibe Smiley Wink I have high hopes for these new JM offerings, the brand definitely knows how to be classy rather than trashy.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Well, there goes all my $, I LOVE how all of these sounds, plus the packaging is gorgeous! I hope they are comparable to the Herb Garden win compared to the lackluster (for me) Blossom scents this year.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

They do sounds lovely. Not very knowledgeable in fragrances... I just know what I like but I'd love to be able to smell these Smiley Happy

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

my fave jo malone: 

  • dark amber & ginger lily 
  • nutmeg & ginger
  • blue agave & cocao

i really like the idea of early grey & cucumber, but i've never worn it or played with it (other than at counter) so i can't claim it as a favorite...yet. i also think the velvet rose & oud is really lovely.

Earl Grey was my first JM scent. I went back a week later for Wood Sage, and have been hooked ever since. 

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Such a good idea to make a Jo Malone thread Smiley Very Happy

 

My favorite Jo Malone is Dark Amber & Gingerlily, and Mimosa & Cadamom is a close second. I also love Wild Bluebell, Orange Blossoms, Wood Sage & Sea Salt, as well as Tuberose Angelica.

 

I need to sniff more of Earl Grey & Cucumber, Black Cedarwood & Juniper, and White Jasmin & Mint. I liked the initial impressions, but I haven't had the chance to douse myself with them yet!

 

I rarely like neroli scents and Lime Basil Neroli as well as Basil Neroli weren't exceptions. I have a rollerball of BB Beach and to me it's totally different from Basil Neroli though. Weird how peoples' noses differ Smiley Happy

 

By the way, I just read that Jo Loves (founded by Jo Malone) is launching its US e-commerce site on November 21. Has anyone tried their line? I am excited to explore a whole new slew of Jo Malone scents!

 

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I'm so happy to see a JM thread! Thanks @LCResz!

I'm relatively new to this brand just discovering it in the spring, but my collection has grown quickly.

I began with LBM and Orange Blossom colognes which I loved throughout the summer.

I have the Nectarine Blossom and Honey candle as well as White Jasmine and Mint. Just burned the latter a couple days ago!

My most recent addiction is Wood Sage and Sea Salt body lotion with Earl Grey and Cucumber cologne layered on top. It's such a fresh, clean scent.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I've been using English Pear and Freesia for years, but I've recently been obsessed with Nectarine Blossom and Honey.

 

Wood Sage and Sea Salt is lovely, but it doesn't last on me, either. Regardless, I'm glad I was able to get that $30 sample set that someone posted in the Deals thread a month or two ago!

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I love both English Pear & Freesia and Nectarine Blossom & Honey! The former is great for spring, and I wear the latter almost non-stop in the summer. I also love Blackberry and Bay, which I think is great for all year. 

 

Wood Sage and Sea Salt is nice but doesn't make my heart soar like the others. It's odd that it doesn't last on you -- maybe try it in the future in a different formulation, like a lotion. The emollient qualities of the lotion may help the fragrance last longer.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I love love LOVE Wood Sage and Sea Salt.  I just wish the scent lasted longer on me Smiley Sad

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Completely agree and understand, @veronika23!! I ended up splurging on the Wood Sage and Sea Salt body lotion and that makes a difference for longevity! It's pricey, but a little goes a long way, especially if you only use it for layering.
