If there’s one magnificence class that intimidates me, I’m not afraid to say that it’s perfume aka perfumes. Perfumes are shrouded in an aura and snobbery that I simply can’t relate to as a result of I’m simply very simple about issues. All I can say a few fragrance is certainly one of two issues – I prefer it, or I don’t prefer it. I can’t even clarify why LOL!
Why else do you assume I don’t speak a lot about perfumes? I can’t be that weblog that breaks down every scent to its little molecules, as a result of I do not know what’s happening. How’s that for fact eh?
So, strolling right into a fragrance retailer like Jo Malone intimidates the hell out of me. When the gross sales individuals ask me “What kind of scents do you like?” I freeze up. How would I do know?! I’d solely know once I odor it!
Which is why my first purchase from Jo Malone wasn’t a full sized perfume. It was a journey assortment of minis, that launched me to the model and to the idea of perfume combining. Since then, I’ve had quite a few queries on the place these units may be purchased. The reply – In an airplane ? They are particular obligation free units which might be solely obtainable very selectively on sure airways. I feel chosen units might be bought at the UK Jo Malone web site or sure shops however I’m unsure if it’s a everlasting factor.
So, when my eye fell on the Jo Malone Cologne Collection set for Christmas 2016, I simply knew I needed to share the knowledge! ? If you’re new to Jo Malone, or are detest to drop over RM400 on a bottle of fragrance, solely to understand that it isn’t fairly your style, or if you wish to mix totally different Jo Malone fragrances, with out promoting your kidney, this one is for you! ?
Jo Malone Cologne Collection Christmas 2016
The Jo Malone Cologne Collection is a set of 5 9ml bottles of colognes in a stupendous presentation field. The Jo Malone Christmas theme this yr – Merry Mischief – has a mischievous harlequin really feel about it, therefore the diamond checks printed on their festive packing containers and ribbons.

- Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne – this was launched early this yr (and I forgot to inform you – oops!)
- Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne – this was launched a while final yr and is a really fascinating scent
- Pomegranate Noir Cologne – one other Jo Malone basic scent. This one’s heavy and candy however I fairly prefer it, particularly for including heavy syrup to a light-weight scent
I beloved that they included the three newly launched scents in there, as a result of it’s a good way to attempt them with out breaking the financial institution.
They are fairly tiny in measurement, however I can inform you that they will final you fairly a very long time, and they’re good to hold round for journey or in your bag. I nonetheless have and use mine that I received some time in the past, primarily as a result of I don’t use them fairly often. For some purpose, Jo Malone scents are pretty, however I can solely deal with them in small doses every time.
You also can experiment with the signature perfume combining that Jo Malone advocates, the place you layer totally different scents, to mix and uncover one that’s really, uniquely, your personal. It is sort of enjoyable to mess around, and you may typically uncover some pretty mixtures… or some actually shitty ones LOL! ? But that’s the enjoyable bit – and also you couldn’t do it with a full sized bottle since you’d find yourself within the poor home ?
Personally talking subsequently, until you’re a large Jo Malone perfume fan, and know every scent just like the again of your hand, or have already got full sized bottles in your assortment, that is the one merchandise I’d decide from the Jo Malone Christmas assortment. It presents one of the best worth and probably the most enjoyable, and is a pleasant option to ease into the model – it’s how I taught myself concerning the model, and the way to mess around with the fragrances. So, the subsequent time I stroll right into a Jo Malone retailer they usually ask me “What scent do you like?” I might inform them LOL! ? This additionally comes within the Cologne Intense versions for people who may favor one thing somewhat stronger.
