Jo Malone Colognes are some of my favorite fragrances, but due its popularity, I like to mix mine to create something unique. Perfumes are something I’m extra picky about, but this is only because I’m sensitive to scents. Also, I don’t like to smell too fruity — like, entirely like vanilla or some kind of fruit; and, I think I’ve outgrown “teeny-bopper” scents as well. I tend to lean towards deeper scents and wore Burberry Classic for the longest time as an adult. In my college years, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue was my signature scent.
For the last few years, I’ve been deeply committed to Jo Malone Colognes, but eventually, I feel that I will move on from this range as well. To where? Who knows!
Some of my favorites are: Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Wild Buebell, Earl Grey & Cucumber, and Blackberry & Bay.
Nectarine Blossom & Honey was my first Jo Malone purchase. My second purchase was Earl Grey & Cucumber. Then, I began mixing the two before purchasing Wild Buebell and Blackberry & Bay. Fragrances are personal, so it’s hard to recommend any particular scent. Usually, the Jo Malone counter at Nordstrom is generous with samples. So, it’s probably best to spritz yourself of whatever you feel like you prefer and test it out. There’s probably some cardinal rule about how to mix fragrances and what to mix them with — for me, it just depends on my mood and where I’m going that day. For the most part, I tend to start out with Blackberry & Bay and go from there. No particular combination is my favorite; I just go with whatever I’m in the mood for. I suppose that’s the fun in Jo Malone colognes because they can be mixed and still be wonderful.
What are some of your Jo Malone favorites? Do you mix to ‘create’ your own scent?
I recommend Jo Malone fragrances and find them to be worthwhile investments. Of course, you get a better deal with purchasing the 3.3 oz. bottle since you get three times more product. I, however, have stuck with the 1 oz. bottles because I take forever to get through them — but, that’s just me.
1 oz. retails for $60.00 USD
3.3 oz. retails for $115.00 USD.
