The new fragrance from Jo Malone. Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne* (from £42) | available online
“A new bohemia awaits. Mists of honeyed, golden mimosa float above the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom. Warm, ethereal, mesmerising.”
The latest scent story from Jo Malone has landed and it is a real treat. Mimosa and Cardamom is inspired by a longing of faraway places – a time during the Victorian era where British travellers explored the globe and brought back exotic treasures to fill their home. The fusion of the powdery, honeyed floral of mimosa with the spicy, fresh cardamom gives us a sensual, unique and adventurous scent that I have completely fallen in love with.
Now I tend to adore most new scents from Jo Malone but there is something particularly special about this newest release. It feels exotic and magical, the subtle spices and woody notes from the creamy tonka and sandalwood transport you to the spice markets of faraway lands whereas the honey-hued mimosa adds a warmth like the afternoon sun in late August. However this fragrance is very much an Autumn/Winter scent and is as comforting as early evening walks through crunchy, fallen leaves or hot, steaming mugs of cocoa in front of a log fire! I love the cologne but can imagine the candle would be particularly lovely also as a treat for your home as the Winter nights draw in.
The new Mimosa & Cardamom fragrance is available as a cologne, body and hand wash, body creme and candle so however you wish to enjoy this mesmerising scent, there is a product out there for you.
