I have a few fragrances in my collection, not a huge amount by any means, about five or six that I like to alternate depending on my mood, the season or the time of day. However, there is one that I get giddy about every time I spray it and one that I can wear anytime of the day or year and love it just as much as the last time I wore it, I never tire of its gorgeous aroma.
The fragrance in question is the Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey, which is described as “London’s Covent Garden early morning market. Succulent nectarine, peach and cassis and delicate spring flowers melt into the note of acacia honey. Sweet and delightfully playful.”
The description does make it sound rather sickly sweet, which I don’t tend to enjoy in my fragrances, but I can assure you it is actually quite delicate and has the perfect balance of floral, fruity and sweet notes that combine to make this gorgeous fragrance. Every time I wear this, it takes me back to the first time I tried it which was such a special weekend that it always leaves me feeling a bit nostalgic. I actually started off with the Body Creme, which is so luxurious and actually has a strong enough fragrance that it can be used alone, but have since got the full size Cologne and travel size, which is great for my handbag or a weekend away! The matching candle is also beautiful, but this is now playing storage to my makeup brushes!
Jo Malone fragrances can also be combined to create a unique scent, so I love to layer this with Wood Sage and Sea Salt, which makes it more earthier and sophisticated, and I love that I can mix it up every now and then. I love the beautiful bottles on my dressing table and the way they package them in the shop, they always make the most perfect gifts!
