I finally did it, I purchased a Jo Malone fragrance. I had been eyeing the Jo Malone counter in Selfridges for around a year but really wanted to take the time to smell everything properly and make a good decision because i'm usually in a rush whenever I spot the store/counter.
In the end I picked up this little gem - 'Blue Agava & Cacao' from the airport, after 15 minutes of comparing around 10 different scents (I was still in a rush but thought...sod it!) and I am still as in love with it as I was from the first whiff.
I am definitely not the best at explaining scents so here is the explanation from the website;
'The rhythm of Latin music -- sexy, edgy and persuasive. Fresh limes and zesty grapefruit dance over a heart of blue agava flower. Sea salt cuts through the primitive rawness of cacao to reveal the sensuality of vetiver, cinnamon and musk.'
What I can try to do though, is to explain how it makes me feel when I am wearing it.
Which is carefree, floaty, whimsical, sexy, exotic, sweet, sensual, attractive and just generally happy.
How amazing is it when a scent actually makes you...happy?! I find this scent very unique, I haven't smelt anything else like it on the market and thats what makes me want to explore more from Jo Malone.
Go and give it a sniff if you're ever passing by and are, like me, addicted to perfumes. If not to buy then just to have the pleasure of experiencing the scent for a second or two!
The scent lingers on my skin still smelling fresh and light for a good few hours (they tend to disappear on me quickly usually) and isn't the packaging just divine? I'm so glad I spent a bit more too and went for the big bottle - So worth it!
Remarkable scent and I am now newly hooked on Jo Malone.
