Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin cologne, 100ml, £88
Jo Malone’s Lime Basil & Mandarin is one of the most famous citrus fragrances in the perfume industry and is the brand’s signature fragrance. Its peppery basil and aromatic white thyme notes are unexpectedly unisex while the twist of lime adds a fresh summery feel. A modern classic, this is a must-have for every fragrance collection.
Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia cologne, 100ml, £88
Designed to capture the essence of autumn, English Pear & Freesia is bursting with the scent of ripe pears and white freesias. The base note of patchouli gives the fragrance a subtle woody tone that enhances the longevity of the perfume while alluding to a quintessential English autumn.
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir cologne, 100ml, £88
This classic scent is one of Jo Malone’s cult perfumes. The stunning combination of pomegranate, raspberry and plum accords, together with darker, headier mixes of Casablanca lily and smoky guaiac wood, have made this a bestseller and the ultimate evening scent.
Jo Malone Basil & Neroli cologne, 100ml, £88
Launched in 2016, Basil & Neroli is the brand’s second fragrance to feature basil as a main ingredient, following the 1999 release of its Lime Basil & Mandarin scent. It is one of the latest additions to the top British perfumer’s collection and focuses on the subtle green notes that made its signature scent so special. A playful, fun fragrance, its peppery basil notes combine with elegant orange flower and base tones of white musk for a powdery and clean finish.
Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede cologne, 100ml, £88
With Peony & Blush Suede, Jo Malone has created a soft powdery floral fragrance that offers a fresh update to traditional floral scents. The bright, luxury fragrance is composed of crisp red-apple notes that lend an air of innocence to the perfume. Peony, with its accents of rose and honey, develops the scent further and this is complemented perfectly by base notes of suede.
Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom cologne, 100ml, £88
While many Jo Malone fragrances are inspired by Britain, Mimosa & Cardamom is an oriental scent which captures a bohemian spirit and also references an era when British explorers brought back exotic treasures from around the world. The colourful, floral fragrance combines top notes of cardamom with the softness of mimosa to give a subtle spicy twist.
Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne, 100ml, £88
Jo Malone’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt immediately transports you to the English seaside and the smell of fresh sea air and salty spray. The unusual fragrance is a playful interpretation of the coast and uses pronounced notes of ambrette seeds, sea salt and earthy sage to create a lively, spirited fragrance.
