In my opinion, Jo Malone’s latest fragrance is easily one of their best yet. I’ve been a big fan of Jo Malone ever since I first discovered her beautiful scents a few years ago, and I haven’t looked back since! (You can see a couple of my other favourite Jo Malone fragrances in this post if you’re interested)
So, let’s take a look at the brand new Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne. This is a gorgeous oriental fragrance, with honeyed, golden mimosa coupled with the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom. Creamy tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. Warm, ethereal, mesmerising.
I must be honest with you and let you know that I’m struggling to describe this scent – the above description is taken from the site. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever tried before. You could usually say ‘it reminds me of…’ or ‘it’s a bit like…’ but I really have nothing I can compare this to. And that’s what I love about Jo Malone fragrances, they’re so unique an individual. A great example being Wood Sage & Sea Salt. You’ll just have to give it a go yourself to see what you think!
What I can say though, is it’s very seasonal, very Autumnal, comforting and warming. It reminds me of a chilly autumn day, where you’re watching the leaves fall from the trees from the warmth of your house. It’s like a cuddle in a warm blanket, but chic!
If you’re a Jo Malone fan, you’ll know you can also layer their scents to create brand new fragrances. Jo Malone advises that Mimosa & Cardamom adds touches of spice to English Pear & Freesia, and gives Red Roses an unfolding warmth… I definitely want to try layering these up!
I highly recommend checking this collection out if you can, you won’t be disappointed! There’s also a Body and Hand Wash, Body Creme and Home Candle in this range – I think I need the candle too!
Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne is £42 for 30ml, and available now from House of Fraser.
