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.

 

EDIT: Updated Jo Malone and Jo Loves perfume collection (100ml, 30ml, dry body oils):FA2FAB5A-F663-4DD0-8934-3A9ABA4D7ED1.jpeg

 

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

Jo Malone direct is giving away free full sized perfumes!  They have a "Pick and Spritz" crane game type thing.  I won a 100ml Basil & Neroli (I LOVE this scent!), but I also saw Oud&Bergamot, and other things like hand creams, candles, etc...

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

Thank you for posting!😍  I made my first order with Jo Malone.  I puchased a bath oil with the 100 ml Basil and Neroli cologne prize.  The hubs loves the cologne.  It turned out to be a great Father's Day present.🎁💙

 

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

I went to NM today after work to sniff all the give away scents today.  I'm glad I got the Basil & Neroli. To my nose it is a softer version of Tom Ford Neeoli Portofino which I think I can wear. I regret not getting the Velvet Rose & Oud body cream. Ít is a beautiful scent

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

I did the same thing yesterday!  I forgot to try the Rose & Oud one - it sounds nice.  Although JM body creams seem to turn to ick on my skin.

 

I was pleasantly surprised by Oud&Bergamot...it reminded me a bit of Le Labo Santal 33, which I find really intoxicating and want to keep smelling.  But even though I like to smell the scent, I'm not sure that I want to smell like the scent?  If that makes sense

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

Oud & Bergamot is a tricky scent.  Somehow i have a vial sample of it.  I spray it on my wrist and sniff it.  I hate it at first  but then the Oud scent settle down and the whole thing is really lovely.  I wanted to redeem that one that day but it was OOS.

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

@blackkitty2014 have you tried Orris & Sandalwood?  I redeemed that one but still havent sampled it yet!

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

@Madeline7 I couldnt tried that one. The tester was completely empty 😞

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

Hey, I tried it on store today. Not sure if I like it. It's pure sandalwood scent, quite heavy. I'm hoping it will grow on me. Definitely not a fragrance for masses.

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

Glad to find Jo Malone lovers here as I was not aware of this group before.

 

I did lot of destruction with the the promotion. Btw, was that one offer per customer or a person can order as many orders as they can? Also has anyone received a shipping confirmation for thier order yet?

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

I received my stuff today! A bit miffed though... my pomegranate noir lotion is missing the top. Gonna have to contact them 😞

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

You could place as many as you want.  Mine shipped on monday and should arrive at the end of the week 🙂

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

new things I 'won'

30 ml Basil and Neroli

Full sized candle  Basil and Neroli  (OOS)

Hand Wash of B&N


(this made me wish I held off on buying my 100ml of Basil and Neroli last Christmas 😕 )

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

Prizes seem to be dwindling down a bit...just won a free engraving. Off to try again!

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

I got the same thing! just an FYI many of the smaller $$ amount items are not in stock probably due to this promotion. 

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

Yeah I noticed that!

 

 

Ok now I just got 50ml of Orris and Sandalwood and I'm making another purchase...I need to stop 😧

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

lol! what did you purchase to get the GWP?

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

I'm getting the Peony Blush shower oil.  Its $45 and sounds really nice!

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

Anyone had any experience with diffusers? I am thinking of getting one but wanted to ask before I commit. What is your fav and how is the strength?

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

I went to a Jo Malone boutique for the first time yesterday and was really impressed!  I love the bow diffusers they have, so you can smell everything without feeling wasteful or getting dizzy from fumes lol

 

I sampled English Pear & Freesia and confirmed that it smells VERY different from the hand cream.  @LCResz was absolutely correct, the heavy pear scent in the cream was less noticeable in the cologne.  I actually really liked it.  I was also blown away by Mimosa & Cardamom (floral and warm without being too spicy or incense-y and lasted all day long) , Wild Bluebell, and Earl Grey & Cucumber.

 

On the other hand, I was less impressed by the limited edition collections 😞  I wanted to love Blue Hyacinth and Garden Lilies, but they were kind of weak and underwhelming.

 

I also wanted to love Wood Sage & Sea salt, but I honestly couldn't smell much of anything (I had a similar problem with Blackberry & Bay).

 

I ended up going home with Star Magnolia, which was a lovely soft, almost powdery floral.  Its very nice, although I wish I had gotten a sample first because I've found its a pretty short-lived scent.

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

Can anyone speak as to whether or not the scent of the Jo Malone hand creams are consistent with the colognes?


Based on the notes, I expected to really like English Pear & Freesia, but I got a sample of the hand cream version and didn't care for it that much 😐  Is it worth sampling the cologne too?

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

The cremes tend to focus on the heart notes while the colognes have subtle nuances that make them so much fun to layer.
