Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne
Jo Malone is basically the leader of the pack when it comes to luxury fragrance. I adore the unusual fragrance combinations they have and this new addition is no different – I’m not a tea drinker myself, but had you asked me if I wanted to smell like a cup of Earl Grey, I’d probably look at you a bit funny and walk away.
Now throw in Cucumber and you definitely have me thinking you’re a bit on the odd side – but this ultimately very British combination really, really works. Of course, it’s not for everyone – but I absolutely love the scent.
Described on the Jo Malone London website as ‘A British tradition…afternoon tea. A fragrance with a burst of bergamot, distinct to Earl Grey, and the cool succulence of crunchy cucumber. Counterpoised with a sweet base of beeswax, vanilla and musk. Reviving and refined.”
This description really hits the nail on the head – it’s a combination of fresh and slightly musky/powdery – not an overwhelming floral so if you’re not a girly girl and prefer your fragrances on the unique side I’d definitely check this out.
Personally, I absolutely adore this and have worn it daily for the last few weeks – I also have been layering it with Molecule 01 as these two work really well together – but more on this later.
