Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne

I have previously mentioned my recent love for Jo Malone - a brand that oozes luxury. From the products to the packaging, Jo Malone has truly got me hook, line and sinker. The newest addition to my line up, was a very well hinted for Valentines Day present last month...

Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne falls into the 'fruity' category. Not your typical sweet, fruity scent this perfume has more of a green base which comes from the mixed notes of bay leaves and cedar wood. Combined with the top note of blackberry, this makes for what I like to call my 'grown up' scent as it is much more sophisticated then anything else I own. Although this would make a great evening perfume, I love to wear this during the day as it has a crisp and fresh edge to it making it perfect for spring.

This is very powerful scent, meaning that a little goes a very long way. I have come up with an application routine; two spritzes on my wrist which I then press against the other one, three sprays onto the front of the neck/chest area (one from each side and then one in the middle), followed by one spritz to the nape of my neck. I find that by doing this my perfume lasts all day, ensures that the scent is not too strong and it makes the bottle last longer. 

What is your favourite Jo Malone product?


  1. Blackberry & Bay is definitely my favourite Jo Malone perfume, I love it! I have the shower gel aswell and the scent makes me so happy in the mornings. I also love the Earl Grey and Cucumber perfume, and I've got my eye on the new Sweet Almond and Macaroon candle for my next purchase!
