This was one of my birthday presents from Lee and I’ve been waiting to talk about it because I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I’m usually a fan of sweet scents but although this is fruity it’s definitely more mature. It’s crisp and fresh rather than the sickly varieties I own. My main gripe is that it doesn’t seem to last all that well on me, I know people say it’s a good thing if you can’t smell a perfume on yourself after a while but that’s just a sale girl line, right? I’m not a fan of super strong fragrances but I’d like to smell it for more than 5 minutes. I’m considering purchasing a complementary scent to go with this as Jo Malone recommend layering colognes for a more unique and deeper scent experience, I’m not sure if that would just then be wasting twice as much money and getting no more of an intense fragrance. I really want to love this and when first spritzed I really do like the contrast of this fresh scent compared to the heavier ones I usually choose but I think this may be a handbag perfume for me, one to top up throughout the day rather than something I can apply in the morning and forget about.
Have you tried anything from Jo Malone? I am sorely tempted by the Vanila & Anise, I think that’s more ‘me’ – available online here
