I was lucky enough to start my Jo Malone collection by winning a beauty basket at a charity event. When they announced my name, I screamed and jumped up and down like a fool and every girl that wanted to win the basket told me they wanted to jump me for it. They were joking… I hope. The gift included three things from the Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia collection. The three things were the cologne, body cream, and liquid hand/body soap.
Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia – All you need is one spritz of this because the scent is lovely, although quite overwhelming. I won’t go into detail of how it smells, but in general, it is the perfect combination of fruity and floral. I have gotten many compliments when I wear this scent. It has grown to be my favorite scent of my entire perfume collection. If I ever run out of this scent, I will definitely purchase another bottle.
Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede – I don’t really understand the title of this cologne. I’m not exactly sure what Blush Suede is, but whatever it is, I really enjoy it. This scent is completely feminine, floral and soft. It is not as strong as the English Pear & Freesia, but you still only need one spray for the entire day. I feel that this scent could have leaned more towards an old lady scent, but it just stopped itself to still be classic yet modern.
Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin – This is the most unique scent of the three. I only have a deluxe sample size of this because it came as the gift with purchase (when I bought the Peony & Blush Suede because of @ingridnilsen’s recommendation.) Lime Basil & Mandarin is not a scent I would gravitate towards, probably because the citrus is lime. I always try it over again to see if I like it, but I would never purchase a full size bottle of it. Let’s just say it is interesting to smell, but not to put on the skin (or my skin anyway.)
Because Jo Malone fragrances are meant to be layered, you can mix and match any scents you want. I tend to mix the Peony & Blush Suede with the English Pear & Freesia. I am happy that I lucked out and got the two scents that actually go together and blend well together.
