Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin perfume review

Every body has their signature scent. I spent a lot of time dabbling in different fragrances, not committing to one single scent. A bit like my dating life – I lusted over many, but could never quite settle down with just one. But now I can solemnly say that I think I may have found the one in the form of the Jo Malone Basil Lime & Mandarin cologne (unlike my love life).

I have always been a fan of the freshly scented cologne, but it wasn’t until I left the sunny shores of Sydney that I realised how much it reminded me of home – the warming sensation of the sun peppered between sporadic outburst of citrus fruits and healthy living whisking my day to dusk into a happiness-frenzy. It is such poetic and charming scent that really warms my soul: yet re-invigorates me senses, no matter the season. I think it is the one scent that will get me through the cold snap London is about to have.

This scent is a modern classic – like a symphony of charismatic yet unexpected notes and highly-erotic fruit tunes. Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze. This scent is my jam so it is no surprise I own both the big and the small size… A girl can never have too many of the one scent, you see!


Signature. Classic. Feels like home.

This is not a sponsored post nor was this perfume gifted to me. I am a massive Jo Malone fan and constantly purchase from there on a monthly basis. Everything I have said in this post is from the heart.
