Notes: cardamom, ginger, pink pepper, jasmine, orchid, water lily, rose, leather, sandalwood, Kyara incense, patchouli, and black amber. Jo Malone was one of the first fragrance houses that I explored in depth back around 2011- 2012 because it’s reasonably accessible and I initially found the scents approachable. Some people swear by Jo Malone. Others dislike … More Dark Amber & Ginger Lily by Jo Malone

Notes: artemisia, rose, honeysuckle, and moss. I always love a Fall release from Jo Malone London. I love the tradition of visiting my local counter and trying the new annual release.

So I can’t speak to the exact accuracy of Jo Malone’s London Rain collection. However, like any interesting fragrance, this collection is more about evoking a certain mood rather than reflecting … More Midnight in London; Black Cedarwood & Juniper
