Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede

No-one does fragrance like Jo Malone, the combination are really simple but absolutely beautiful, English Pear and Freesia is one of my all time favourites but all of the fragrances are gorgeous and the latest edition is no disappointment.
Fresh, light floral scents are my favourite type of perfumes, but I know a lot people avoid floral perfumes because they think floral are overpowering and maybe a granny-like but I think this one will appeal to a lot of people. The red apple top note gives the scent a really fresh crispness but the peony keeps it floral and feminine but the suede base note makes it sophisticated and grown up, almost a little masculine. I think once it settles down, it’s floral with a musky undertone. In terms of longevity, it’s similar to other Jo Malone perfumes, I can get around five hours without topping up.
I really like this perfume and it’s became one of my all time favourite scents, it’s just what you expect from Jo Malone and I really recommend going to counter to see whet you think.

June Favourites

Another month is over so it’s time for another rundown of my favourite beauty products.

Origins No Puffery Roll On

If you suffer from puffy eyes because of hay fever, this is perfect for you, it’s just like the eye mask but it’s more convenient to use and it’s easy to take on the go.

Percy and Reed No-Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo

I really don’t like dry shampoo, I don’t like the feeling it leaves it my hair and I’ve never thought dry shampoo has really done anything but then I discovered this and it is the best dry shampoo I’ve tried. It instantly refreshes my hair without that horrible feeling or white residue.

Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia

If I had only had to wear one perfume for the rest of time, I would happily use this. For me, it’s the perfect scent, it’s fruity and floral but not sickly sweet, it’s sophisticated and long-lasting.

Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia

I love perfume, it’s one of my favourite beauty products but I’m really fussy when it comes to fragrances, I don’t like anything too heavy or overpowering, I prefer lights, fresh scents.

I’m a massive Jo Malone fan, if I could, I would have every perfume but that’s not financially possible. The latest edition to my perfume collection is English Pear and Freesia and it’s absolutely beautiful. Firstly, I really like the bottles of Jo Malone perfumes, I like the simplicity of the bottles and packaging. I like floral perfumes but I don’t like perfume to be too sweet and I always thought I didn’t like fruity scents but this is just perfection. The top note is King William Pear, the heart note is white freesia and the base note is patchouli. The smell is light, fresh and a perfect balance between floral and fruit. When I first sprayed it, the pear was the strongest element but once it dried down, it was a lovely fresh freesia, it’s very delicate and feminine. I love Jo Malone fragrances because of their simplicity, I always feel the perfumes smell exactly like the name. The longevity is pretty good, it lasted on me for about six hours which I think is really good.

Like all Jo Malone scents, this comes in 30ml and 100ml sizes and there is a matching body wash and body cream. I really recommend you go and smell the fragrance, you won’t be disappointed.

Jo Loves Gardenia

I love Jo Malone fragrances, both Jo Malone and Jo Loves gets an incredible amount of press and for good reason, they’re just gorgeous. I really love single-note perfumes and simplicity of them but sometimes they don’t smell true to the ingredients, this is never the case with any of Jo Malone’s fragrances.

Gardenia is one of my favourite perfume ingredients, it obviously smells floral but its not overly sweet.

Jo Loves Gardenia has top notes of Italian bergamot and gardenia leaves, the heart notes are ylang, ylang, gardenia blossom, white narcissus, sambac jasmine and coumarin and finally the base notes are heliotrope and musk. I personally can only smell gardenia, which I really like, its a pure, simple scent which smells opulent and luxurious. The scent settles to be quite soft but still noticeable. Its not the most long-lasting perfume I’ve ever used but I’ve never found a gardenia perfume to last very long on the skin, so I would invest in a travelo, to top up the smell during the day and night.

Its available from Jo Loves and is £45 for 30ml and £95 for 100ml, it is quite expensive compared to a lot of mass market perfumes but you can depend of Jo Malone perfumes to use the best ingredients, so you know you’re paying for quality.
