Right! It is time for Jo Malone London fans to get very excited because there’s a brand new fragrance coming and it is all kinds of lovely. There’s a bit of a wait until September but I wanted to give you the heads up now! Here’s the lowdown on the new Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne.
“A new bohemia await. Mists of honeyed, golden mimosa float about the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom . Creamy tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. warm, ethereal, mesmerising.”
Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne was created by master perfumer Marie Salamagne, who also created the recent Incense & Cedrat. It is a lovely creation and I find it really warming on my skin, with a soft and smooth finish. It will be perfect for September time when Autumn starts to roll on.
The cardamon gives it a soft and soothing spiciness while the Mimosa injects a subtle sweetness that’s anchored to the skin with creamy tonka bean. It has a beautiful and bright freshness as it first hits the air and then it settles into a soft and comforting warmth that lasts and becomes one with the skin. The softness of rose is very pretty.
It has a modern feel but with a classic exotic Moroccan twist and it has a wonderful balance between light and dark. It’s a really wearable fragrance and I think it will be a hit.
Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne is out in September 2015 and is £42 for 30ml. There’s also a Body & Hand Wash, a Body Creme and a Home Candle. Find Jo Malone at Selfridges, House of Fraser and John Lewis.
