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.

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

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

 

Jo Malone The Bloomsbury Set collection launches in March 2017

  • 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. 😂

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

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 😉 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 🙂

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.

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

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 😄

 

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 🙂

 

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 😞

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.

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

That is very good to know @BaseballMommy Thank you so much for this info!!! 🙂

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

Me too, which is why I didn't grab this one. There was another lovely rare tea collection scent that was AMAZING sprayed on a tester, but sprayed on my arm, it literally dissipated within 5 mins. And with it being a rare tea scent, the cost was unjustifiable for it to only last minutes. But for now, I'm all about the Earl Grey and the Orange Blossom ones. OMG, these are like heaven in a bottle to me.  

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

I must second the amazingness of Earl Grey and Cucumber, it has decent lasting power for a tea scent. Didn't indulge in any of the Rare Tea colognes, too pricey for what you'd be getting, imo.

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

I'll go third on Earl Grey and Cucumber - bought the big bottle a couple weeks ago and have been wearing it almost every day!

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

Cool! I don't think I smelled those.  I have a sample of another Jo Malone scent but can't recall which one... cedar something?  Just recently received a bunch of samples from various brands so I have plenty of new scents to try 😄

 

I am pretty picky since though... ugh sensitivities lol

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

Mimosa and Cardimom is a go to for me as well. Another fave was Vanilla and Anise - such a bummer it was discontinued!

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

Black Cedarwood and juniper and Mimosa and Cardamom are my go to's - I do combine them, but each smell delicious worn alone too 🙂
