Synonymous for its collection of renowned scents, Jo Malone London serves up fresh fragrances in the form of candles, perfumes and hand washes to keep its wearers smelling fresh as a daisy whatever the need.
Having recently been gifted with two of the brand’s colognes, ‘Fresh Strawberry & Basil’ and ‘Carrot Blossom & Fennel’ we decided to review both. As the brands had slightly unusual compositions in title, expectations were uncertain of what to expect.
Poured into travel handy, compact little bottles, one of each scent could be kept in your handbag for emergencies, making it ideal for the busy working woman for times of need when a quick freshen up is required.
The packaging of the fragrances is simple but very clean and simplistic. The bottles are Green which really complements the white and black outer packaging, encompassing Jo Malone’s holistic natural ingredients. The white and black outer presentation bo
x, again is very simple yet chic, juxtaposing its contents inside to evoke the idea of simplistic and calming tones.
FRESH STRAWBERRY AND BASIL
Fresh Strawberry & Basil is a very natural, fresh smell. I would happily spray this cologne all over my house as it reminds me of cleanliness and fresh bedding – in an unconventional way. What really comes through is the smell of basil, beautifully set off by the fresh strawberry which accompanies it so well. This scent would be great to wear for a Wedding or a picnic in the park, flowery and fruity this choice settles into the summer season with ease.
CARROT BLOSSOM AND FENNEL
The Carrot Blossom & Fennel is a personal favourite of the two, reminiscent of the intense but calming scent of walking into a ‘Lush’ store – zesty, fragrant and renewed. A choice easy to appoint your go-to-season-scent, the flavours involve depict notion of a sweet summers day. This scent would be great to wear for a Festival or a Party, suitable for vibrant character and strong personalities.
I love both Fragrances for very different reasons which I think is a good thing, the scents are so different yet so current and versatile. All Jo Malone Fragrances are natural which gives them such a familiar, calming scent. I will definitely be purchasing these two again and I am extremely excited to try out some other scents. Overall I found both scents to be very nice, I am looking forward to testing more of these Jo Malone London products and even treating myself to a Jo Malone Candle.
