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, Mandarin 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, 50ml, 30ml, dry body oils):

Jo Malone is on a roll. A bunch of repromoted scents are now available at Sephora and also this one. @LCResz @have you tested it out? If you do, please give us some mini review. 🌹

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

@blackkitty2014  I did get to try out both Sea Daffodil and Bitter Mandarin.

 

Sea Daffodil is a sweet and floral scent, but it’s not a standout cologne. Despite being based on a unique blossom it’s rather generic, ylang ylang is all I really get. 

 

Now Bitter Mandarin is a whole other story, it was instant love! It has a bright, almost fizzy quality coming from the all the lovely fruits and petitgrain, while the amber and iris ground the perfume, adding to the longevity on my skin. It’s distinct enough from last year’s Orange Peel that I think it’s a great addition to the yummy citrus scents JM does so well.

Thx you so much for your review @LCResz 🌹👍❤️

I hope this is a good one and will be available during the sale 😍

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

Oh this is a repromote @blackkitty2014 @LCResz @itsfi ?! 🤦🏻‍♀️😭 I had it when it first came out I’m almost sure! I thought was a new version or something I think! Phew! Pennies saved. 

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

@blackkitty2014 Sakura Cherry Blossom has been reissued several times since it was first released in 2011. It’s a lovely spring scent that is airy and powdery, but I find the cherry blossom note is quite fleeting, even for a JM cologne. I don’t have many of the Blossoms in my collection because they are so ephemeral to my nose.

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

Thx you so much for the feedback @LCResz. I vaguely remembered the name so I googled and found image of one of the release. I remember the bottle but have no clue what it smelled liked so I figured either my nose couldn’t detect the scent or the scent was forgettable. Your feedback just confirms it. Thx you thx you🌹❤️

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

@LCResz, you mentioned that this has an airy scent to it. Would it be safe to assume that the powdery scent you mentioned is more on the lighter, delicate side? Or is it a heavier powder scent? My nose and head have a harder time with heavier powdery scents. 

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

@itsfi The scent is zesty and lightly sweet, which is what gives it the airy quality to my mind. The rose gives it a powdery quality that isn’t overwhelming, pleasant but nothing earth shattering. For the price it’s a whole lot of not much. I’d grab for my V&R Dancing Roses if I were in need of a good roses and cherry brandy hit.

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

Thank you @LCResz! 😃 This is good to know. 

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

@blackkitty2014 @LCResz, early access for the fragrance is available now through the Sephora app.

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

Thx @itsfi . This one is repromoted scent. I don’t remember how it smells. Decision decision 

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

@blackkitty2014, it is cherry blossom season so the release (or re-release) is timely. Or, maybe they are wanting to provide a more wallet friendly alternative to the Guerlain $600+ cherry blossom fragrance. 🌸 

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

Thx for the enabling friend @itsfi 😂🤣 Seriously the Guerlain cherry blossom price is pretty nut 😂🤣

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

@blackkitty2014, the bottle of the Guerlain this year is beautiful! 😍 I watched a short feature on the embroidery artist who helped design the bottle and kept thinking how the detailing was so lovely. Then I had to keep telling myself $600 … $600 … Maybe I should start digging through the couch to see if I can come up with enough loose change for it. 🤣 It really is very pretty.

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

Or selling a kidney @itsfi  😂🤣😂 I keep my kidney for now 🤣😂

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

That’s a wise decision @blackkitty2014! Good thinking! 🧠 😂 

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

Through tomorrow 2/16 at Jo Malone direct, there’s a GWP promo: 3 deluxe samples (minis) + pouch with minimum order of $120.

 

Unfortunately, most of their new limited edition Rose fragrances are sold out already - but some still available at Sephora.

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

Jo Malone is always top quality and everything smells stunning!

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

Pieced together from Jo Malone Fan UK and Greek website Fashion Daily: This year’s Blossoms collection will be similar to last year’s packaging design, but with opaque caps. Colognes will include new comers Sea Daffodil as well as Bitter Mandarin; JM will also be issuing Silk Blossom (seems to come back every Spring now) and Wood Sage & Sea Salt in the limited edition packaging. In addition, Silk Blossom and Nectarine Blossom & Honey will be available as diffusers. 

Personally last year’s Blossoms weren’t my thing, but I am really excited to find out what Sea Daffodil smells like!

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

UPDATE: Blossoms 2022 now available via JM UK website, so here’s what’s officially in the release (JM website released info follows):


Blossom season is upon us and with it brings a sense of optimism, hope and unadulterated joy. At Jo Malone London we revel in the carefree elation, taking the opportunity to celebrate the olfactive diversity the period brings. By now you know that we like to do things a little differently and this year we’re looking to sun-bathed southern Europe for inspiration. Carefree days by the Mediterranean Sea, where white-sun mornings give way to golden afternoons and balmy evenings, as the sun sinks slowly over the horizon above the placid wash of the waves. The result? Two new colognes representing summer: Sea Daffodil and Bitter Mandarin.
