Jo Malone London, Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne 100 ml £76* / 30ml £38
I practically groped the postman when I opened the door and saw him holding a Jo Malone package, I'm a huge Jo Malone London fan as you all know and I had no idea this new cologne launch had been making it's way to my house - I'm a very lucky girl!
I'm always intrigued by new fragrances from Jo Malone, but this one REALLY caught my attention. Earl Grey and Cucumber, could this be any more British? It pretty much sums up the British tradition of afternoon tea and as I come from a family of Earl Grey drinkers, I couldn't wait to give it the spritz and sniff test.
The top note is Bergamot, the heart of the fragrance is Cucumber and the base is Beeswax. Despite being very picky with fragrances, I'm actually a big fan of this one. It's surprisingly fresh, but kind of also smells like an old Earl Grey tea bag, but in a nice way! It lasted really well on my skin and the vanilla and musk that's in the base notes really comes out throughout the day.
If you're already a Jo Malone fan and own some of their fragrances, Jo Malone recommend layering this scent with 'Grapefruit' to lift and brighten and with 'Nutmeg & Ginger' to warm with a spicy vibrancy.
It is, like all of the Jo Malone products pretty pricey, but I recommend going for the 30ml because it's the perfect handbag size and by the time it's finished you can try a different Jo Malone fragrance!
Will you be going to give this a sniff?
