I''ve been needing some new perfume, and I''ve heard WONDERFUL things about Jo Malone! So, I just went to Jo Malone''s website and ordered the Cologne Collection. It includes small bottles of six different scents: Amber & Lavender, Grapefruit, Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir, Red Roses, and Orange Blossom. And I got to choose two free samples with my order! I picked Sweet Lime & Cedar and Nectarine Blossom & Honey. Ooooh, and I almost forgot to mention: EVERYTHING IS 25% OFF UNTIL TOMORROW!!!


Of course, after I placed my order, they sent me an e-mail with a coupon for my next order! So, does anyone have a favorite Jo Malone scent that I should try?

Gee, Miranda, that really narrows it down a lot! LOL!


Seriously, it''s great that you like so many of them! That makes me glad I ordered the sample set! I can''t wait for it to get here!


The set I ordered includes the Pomegranate Noir, but the Tuberose, Vintage Gardenia and Ginger & Nutmeg aren''t in it. The Vintage Gardenia sounds awesome! I might have to give that one a try!

The sample set is really the way to go. I''m a variety kinda girl and her collection really fits the bill for me.

I can''t wait to hear what you think when they arrive.

Yeah, and I was reading on her website about the fragrance layering . . . I''ll definitely have to give that a try too! It''s nice that the website gives you tips for which fragrances work well together. I''ll let ya know when they get here!

I love Jo Malone perfume and I am not a perfume kind of person. I spritzed the Orange blossom on the sample paper strip, walked out of the store and just kept sniffing it all through the mall until I was forced to go back to the store and buy it!! that has never happened before. I also have Blue agave. I want to add another but can''t decide which one. I like Vintage gardenia, but I know several younger people who don''t like it at all. I didn''t like the rose one until you layered it with something else (can''t remember which one, sorry) and then I loved it. I always spritzed them one right after another until I read you are supposed to let the first one dry, then spritz the second. It is sold in most Neimans and Saks, and you might be able to get a sample or two if you look like a good prospect to buy!

Thanks, HA! I wish I lived close to a Nieman''s or Saks, but unfortunately I don''t. I think the closest store that sells Jo Malone is about 75 miles away!


I''m glad to hear that you lilke the Orange Blossom . . . that''s the one I''m the most interested in, and I wouldn''t have ordered the sample set if it didn''t include the Orange Blossom. I''ve heard people just RAVE about that one! Do you like the Blue Agave one? That''s another one that I''ve heard good things about, and I''d like to try it sometime. I''ll help you decide which one to buy next when mine get here!

I love them - I like Nectarine Blossom and Honey, but DH isn''t a big fan.

What he does like is what I''m wearing daily now - I layer Orange Blossom underneath French Lime Blossom - they are a perfect combo on me, but the guy at the Jo Malone counter at Bloomie''s said stuff dries down strangely on me, so that might not work on everyone...

Amber Gretchen-- I am getting a very strange visual of how the guy at the store sniffed you so closely he could tell "stuff dries down strangely on me"

I must have missed some important part of the Jo Malone sensory experience at my store. I guess I''ll have to ask my hubby how it dries down on me.

Anyway, the blue agave is strong and unique, I like it and have never smelled anything quite like it-- it is bolder than orange blossom. I got it cos the kids wanted to buy me some for X-mas (Yea!) and I knew my DD liked it so I got what she liked. As of yesterday, French Lime blossom is her fav.
One of the things I like about these is they smell crisp and clean not powdery. I always think of my Grandma''s perfume when I smell a powdery perfume.

HI:

I wore Grapefruit and White Jasmine and mint today. I like to combine them. Their lotions are lovely as well.

I''ve worn French Lime Blossom and Orange Blossom as well. Both nice. My DH likes the Pom Noir and Amber and Lav. 25% off is great!

cheers--Sharon

Hi Irish!!

I LOVE Jo Malone!!! I wear the Pomegranate Noire (MY FAVE) and the Orange Blossom almost daily....Just a tip, a lot of the scents could be mixed together, and I especially love layering these 2 scents- such a clean, fresh scent!!!! I definitely want to acquire more sometime soon- thanks for the sale tip!!!

Let us know what you think and enjoy!!!!

HA ~ LOL at the guy sniffing Amber in the store! And the Blue Agave sounds very nice . . . definitely one on my list to try! I''m so glad to hear that they don''t smell powdery. I''m like you . . . powdery perfume makes me think of elderly ladies playing bridge and drinking tea!


Sharon ~ Thanks for the tips! The White Jasmine & Mint sounds very nice!


Dani ~ I definitely plan to try combining them, so thanks for the hint! I''ll let you know when they get here!

YAY, Skip! You should totally get some! Then we can become Jo Malone addicts together! Hee hee!


The French Lime Blossom isn''t included in the sample set, but it might be one of the free samples you can choose at checkout. (You get to pick two, so think of another one you''d like to try!)

Hee hee hee! I'm getting good at this enabling thing, huh?!?!


And WOO HOO! I got one of the same samples you did . . . the Nectarine Blossom & Honey one. (My other one was Sweet Lime & Cedar, which I think is their newest fragrance.) I'm so excited!!! How many more sleeps 'til they get here I wonder?


ETA: Hey, which candle did you get? I am a HUGE fan of candles!

LOL OMG now I am giggling - seriously, it wasn''t that bad...I am a happily married woman, after all


I think I have weird chemistry though, in all seriousness, a lot of perfumes just don''t work on me at all, and some popular ones smell just...off on me. I have the two Jo Malone scents that I like (actually 3 including the Nectarine Blossom & Honey), and then there are just two others: one is Annick Goutal''s Mandragore, and the other is a special-edition Fortnum and Mason 300th anniversary perfume made my M. Micallef, a Parisian perfumer - and you can''t get that one in the states

LOL! Amber, don''t worry . . . you''re not weird. My Grandmother has the exact same problem! She swears that the only perfume that doesn''t "change" on her is Foxfire by Avon!

Hehe - always good to not be "weird" LOL


You and Skippy are adorable with your samplers - I really want to go back to the counter and try some more of her scents, see if any of the others work on me - I know the Agave and the Fresh Lime & Cedar ended up smelling weird, but I think I''d like to try Pomegranate Noir again...
