For those beauty insiders unaware of Jo Malone, it is a cologne empire based in London that specializes in ranges of classic scents. I purchased my first Jo in a Nordstrom on the outskirts of Houston, Texas. The sales associate was knowledgable on all accounts – he knew the notes of each scent, the categories of scents, and even unusual cologne pairings to create a new, foreign scent.
I went with the Wild Bluebell Cologne, a scent in the Light Floral category. The notes include bluebell, persimmon, and white musk. I was attracted to this scent immediately from the youthful yet sophisticated aroma. It has been my fragrance of choice, since the purchase earlier this spring.
The wonderful sales associate was sweet enough to stuff my exquisite bag with five other colognes: Peony & Blush Suede, Grapefruit, Orange Blossom, Blackberry & Bay, and English Pear & Freesia. Interestingly, if you mix two Jo Malone, you will get a third scent! These scents have complex tones and are very unique. I like the Grapefruit with the Wild Bluebell for summer – a partnership of citrus and florals.
