It's times like this I wish I could just embed a scent into my blog, you know, a scratch and sniff blog. Alas I don't. So you'll have to put up with my inept attempts at describing scents... prepare for lots of "oooh I love this".
Jo Malone London have a new Limited Edition fragrance available now, Plum Blossom. Officially described as "Opening with the fruitful freshness of yellow plum, its floral heart blooms on a background of creamy sandalwood and clean, white musk".
To me this smells so like plums it's uncanny, it's a sort of sour-ish plum scent, rather than a sweet fruity scent. That's a good thing. It smells just like plums...and it stays like that for quite some time, then when you give yourself a sniff an hour or so later thats when you really get the musk and sandalwood underneath, whilst there's still a hint of the plum blossom around. It's truly a thing of beauty, I've seen other reviews mention it as being a bit too light to wear alone, I've not found that at all and find it positively gloriously alone, however, it is also, I am afraid, perfect for Fragrance Combining, in particular with Nectarine Blossom & Honey. Sounds delish!
Finally, just a comment on the bottle, beautiful as always, trimmed with a dusky pink rope, and a floral design on the front, gorgeous.
Ooh I really do love this perfume. To me, or certainly for my usual tastes, its completely different and I really do love it.
£36 for 30ml Cologne or £72 for 100ml Cologne.
