Just when you think Jo Malone couldn’t possibly release anything more beautiful to the senses than their previous perfumes, (I’m sure I fall in love with each new scent than little bit more each time!) a new launch comes along that literally leaves you swooning, both for that gorgeously decorated bottle and the most addictively zesty scent I have ever smelt.
Jo Malone’s Nashi Blossom Cologne* (£44/£89) is a limited edition scent this season that is the epitome of Springtime and is sweetly described as a petal pop. It is a fresh, bright and light combination of succulent nashi fruit, pear, crisp apple and mouth-watering lemon. These zingy notes are softened by nashi blossom, rose and creamy white musk which gives the whole scent a playful, radiant and youthful feel. This new perfume just screams summer picnics and afternoons of fruit picking under the heat of the Summer sun. It is completely refreshing and very different to the sickly-sweet or overly floral scents that you often see and smell around this time of year. It is so light and delicate on the skin it reminds me very much of Jo Malone’s Grapefruit cologne – simple, fruity, tinged with citrus appeal and easily layered with a multitude of other colognes. And let’s just mention that bottle! The design has been inspired by the Nashi Flower which boosts a pure white petal juxtaposed with a jet black stamen hence the graphic, polka dot effect studded all over the glass bottle. It is modern and fresh, topped with a zesty lime green cap. Absolutely gorgeous.
If you are searching for a new Summer scent to give you a spring in your step then this limited edition cologne could be the one you are looking for!
