Jo Malone London: Blackberry & Bay
Jo Malone London colognes are my favorite fragrances to wear. I'm enticed by the brand, from its luxurious packaging to the quintessential London lifestyle Jo Malone exudes.
When I was first interested in getting my own bottle, a lovely woman at a Jo Malone London counter kindly gave me a sample size of each cologne to try. I swooned over Blackberry and Bay. My lovely aunt gifted me a bottle for Christmas!
Jo Malone London places Blackberry and Bay under its 'Fruity' category. I find the fragrance of this cologne to be more earthier than fruity. Described as 'evoking childhood memories of blackberry picking', this cologne has middle notes of bay leaf, top notes of blackberry, and base notes of cedar wood. The depth of this fragrance is autumnal and reminds me of walking through a damp forest after a chilly fall day. The understated sweet aroma of fresh blackberries is tart, and just enough to add whimsy and femininity.
I look forward to adding to my collection with more Jo Malone London colognes, candles, and body products. The cologne is priced at $125 USD for a 100 ML bottle, and $65 USD for 65 ML. Jo Malone London is available in its boutiques, and various luxury retailers like Nordstrom and Bluemercury.
Till next time.
