Jo Malone Basil & Neroli Cologne

Jo Malone Basil & Neroli Cologne

You may have clocked my perfume drawer already – it’s overflowing with magnificent glass bottles, many of them from Jo Malone. I love the fresh, sophisticated scents from the brand, all unique, all incredibly luxe.

It’s almost time for the brand’s annual release; a signature fragrance added to the main arch every September. This years addition is both herby and musky – just what I look for in a scent.

Meet Jo Malone Basil & Neroli Cologne – a fresh, woody pick that I’ve been spritzing on daily! I love this pairing of notes as the result is so ‘played down’. Not sickly sweet, but not overly sharp either. It’s a very wearable combination, and it layers beautifully with many of the other Jo Malone fragrances.

I have to say, I first thought this was way too powdery for me, there’s something in the way the neroli sits on the skin at first that just After the notes settle though, it’s a touch more creamy and the basil diffuses much of the musky scent, balancing it out beautifully.
This is probably not a scent for everyone, but it’s easily one of my favourite releases from the brand. It’s effortless and understated, and not too girly for everyday wear!

It’s a really well-matched mix of notes, it almost gets better on me as the day wears on. Plus, the packaging is (of course!) entirely flawless… I just can’t get enough of those pretty bottles.
Definitely something to sample if you’re eyeing up something new for your seasonal scent!

Will you be giving this a whiff on counter?
