For those who know me, you will already be aware of my slight obsession with Jo Malone. It is no surprise I have an addiction/ hoarding problem when it comes to Jo Malone – they just seem to nail every product they launch, so it is little wonder my house is littered with the brand. And because I am all for joining a
cult brand that never fails, it is no surprise I have fallen head-over-heels in lust with their latest limited edition scent – Sakura Cherry Blossom.
Yep, Jo Malone Sakura Cherry Blossom is as delicious as it sounds. It is fruity, full of passion and has just the right about of pizazz to team with absolutely any outfit; and any moment of the day. It is fruity: but not overwhelmingly so. It is delicate: but packs a punch. And it is pure and has an element of transient innocence. With it diaphanous layers of cherry blossoms that mingle with subtle notes of rose and sparkling bergamot, it captures the airiness of spring and definitely adds another of authenticity.
When I first smelt this chunky bottle of goodness, I thought – ‘what is that? Where can i get it from? And how many first-borns is it going to cost me?!’’. Yes, my nasal cavity felt so much lust for this scent it was overwhelmed! It is juicy and brimming with all those Spring-feelings: happiness, delicateness, new-life, luminosity. It is captivating, effortless and heady – a scent that even your Grandmother would love – much too, your Boyfriend. I had the male tick of approval with this scent (clearly not my boyfriend – eternally single Lucy has not been fortunate enough to snag herself a British Boyfriend.. yet ha)! If it were a man; it would be my main man because it is sexy, subtle and leaves you wanting more.
Ok, I think it is obvious – I am ADDICTED!!
