I've lost count of the times I've entered a Jo Malone store just to sniff their beautiful fragrances, but I've never been able to justify buying one. Until last weekend, that is. I had just got my pay for the few weeks that I worked 20+ hours a week, so it seemed only natural to treat myself to a little something. 

Choosing a scent was incredibly difficult. I had narrowed it down to three - Blackberry & Bay, Peony & Blush Suede and English Pear & Freesia (I seem to like the fruity and floral ones...). In the end I decided to go for English Pear & Freesia, more on a whim than because I prefer it over the other two; they're all so beautiful. I can't describe scents to save my life, so here is what Jo Malone says on their website - 

'The essence of autumn. The sensuous freshness of just-ripe pears is wrapped in a bouquet of white freesias, and mellowed by amber, patchouli and woods. Luscious and golden.

Yup. All I can say is that it's stunning. The balance between floral and fruity is perfect, and it's simultaneously fresh and warming. And on the plus side, the packaging is gorgeous!

Have you used any of Jo Malone's perfumes before?

Love, Mimmi.
