I learned about Jo Malone London years ago, from my aunt. She loves fragrance and would have the Neiman Marcus lady call her whenever something new or interesting would come along. Can you believe that? I never had it like that! HaHaHa Then she would buy the entire collection for whatever scent she chose. Un-frickin-believable! HaHaHa
I love beauty products, but I've never been big on fragrance. Back in my college & graduate school days, I couldn't fathom spending $100 on one bottle of cologne. Let alone a cologne with WHAT in it? Anise? Cassis? What is THAT? How much? You mean I don't even get lotion for that price? HaHaHa Yeah, my aunt would hide her head in shame! LOL Well anyway, many Jo Malone London scents smell really good. Jo Malone London was established in the UK in 1994. Estee Lauder acquired it in 1999. Jo Malone London has just released a NEW collection (that interests ME)! Food is involved! HaHaHa Hmmm, did my aunt write her? LOL
The Sugar & Spice Collection consists of: Lemon Tart, Redcurrant & Cream, Elderflower & Gooseberry, Ginger Buiscuit, and Bitter Orange & Chocolate. Each is $60 for a 30mL bottle. I'm trying to decide which one I want. I really should sample them, but we don't have a Neiman Marcus where I live and Saks Fifth Avenue is downtown. Are you still there? I was thinking out loud. HaHaHa
Below are the descriptions for each:
Lemon Tart - The mouth-watering tang of lemon tart. Sparkling with citrus fruits and verbena, contrasted with swirls of meringue and lemon thyme. Refreshing.
Redcurrant & Cream - A summer pudding. Sharp-scarlet juices of redcurrants, lush strawberries
and raspberries, rippling through creamy musk. Vivacious and enticing.
Elderflower & Gooseberry - A voluptuous gooseberry fool. Crushed, summer-green gooseberries, juicy
with lychee, enfolded into the soft delicacy of elderflower. Tender and
Ginger Biscuit - Just-baked biscuit. Spiced with ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon, melting
into caramel. Butter-crumbly with roasted hazelnuts. Warmed by tonka
bean and vanilla. Irresistible.
Bitter Orange & Chocolate - The bite of bitter orange, layered with dark chocolate. Orange peel
counterpoised with warm, powdery cocoa, milky coconut and coumarin.
Sumptuous and addictive.
Somebody please tell me what a GOOSEBERRY is? They look like peeled grapes! How do they taste? Don't worry I won't lick the cologne. HaHaHa
I think I'm leaning towards Lemon Tart or Ginger Biscuit. If you're not into foodie perfumes, she has a plethora of others in floral, citrus, fruity, woodsy and spicy lines. There's definitely something for everyone!
Below is a cute video the company released.
