Some people have their signature scent, the smell that would remind people of them, and I used to be one of those people. I had a few perfumes I rotated between. Abercrombie and Fitch original, Calvin Klein Euphoria, Estée Lauder Muse to name a few.
I’ve however become a Jo Malone lover and I think it’s so great how all their products work so well together. I personally think this is a fabulous way to smell gorgeous, mixing and matching to find what your nose falls in love with by creating your own scent basically!
It’s expensive though! I constantly joke with the staff at my local counter that they are bankrupting me. It’s only half a joke hahahahaha
The very first ever scent I bought from Jo Malone was the Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne. So light and yummy and lovely. But because of the price I took ages making the decision to actually buy it. I’m so glad I took the leap in the end! I have repurchased this several times now.
With a top note of Bergamot and Heart note of cucumber and Base note of beeswax it’s just Mmmmmmmmm to my senses. At £45 for a 30ml bottle and £90 for 100ml it’s kind of a luxury to me. I try to buy it at the airport for £37 as much as I can to save the pennies you know.
I layer this on top of the second scent I ever bought from Jo Malone which is Oud & Bergamot Cologne Intense. Its dark and gorgeous and works beautifully with Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne. Top note of Bergamot, Base note of Cedarwood and Oudwood. But blimey it’s so expensive at £115 for 100ml (doesn’t come in a smaller size) that I have not repurchased this in cologne form. Luckily, they do this one in Body Crème form at a ‘mere’ £60 for 175ml. This Body Crème keeps your skin moisturised for 24 hours and let me tell you, the scent lasts for that long on me too!
I use the Pomegranate exfoliating shower gel to keep my skin clean and polished and this is also a divine experience on the senses! Top notes of Pomegranate, Heart note of Casablanca Lilly and Base note of Guaiacwood.
There you have it folks, the steps I take to smell gorgeous! I’m going to leave you with a beautiful shot I took (if I may toot my own horn a little) of my cute cat Freddie and my now empty (but keeping it for the pretty shelf) cologne intense.
Please do leave me a comment because as usual I’d love to hear from you all! What perfumes to you wear and recommend? Which ones to stay away from? Do your pets photobomb your pictures too? hahahahah
Until Next Time,
