Jo Malone Silk Blossom Cologne

Ok, so my love affair with Jo Malone is still going strong. My wishlist is pretty extensive but there is just something about the luxurious nature of this brand and their ever enticing scents that always have me coming back for more. As soon as I heard about the limited edition Jo Malone Silk Blossom Cologne I knew I would like it but once I saw the design of the bottle, I knew I had to have it...

The bottle is designed with silk blossom in mind. Pink and white in colour, perfect for an appearance on your dressing table, with an added tassel falling down the side of the bottle so when you turn it upside down it will actually look like silk blossom. The scent would be described as a soft powdery floral one due to heart notes of silk blossom, rose petals and jasmine. There are hints of sweet fruit notes from apricot and white pepper but there is also a noticeable earthiness to this cologne from base notes of moss. At first spray the scent comes across as quite sweet and fruity but once it has settled on the skin it becomes more green and floral. As with all Jo Malone products, the scent very strong meaning that only three to five spritzes of this feminine perfume will stay for the whole day.

In comparison to Peony & Blush Suede, I would say Silk Blossom is a more 'grown up' take on my favourite scent. Less floral, more musky, this scent is one that you need to try while you can. If you don't love Peony & Blush Suede then you might like this. If you love Peony & Blush Suede then you will love this too.

Have you tried this perfume?


  1. I haven't actually tried any jo malone perfumes but I've heard good things, the bottle looks gorgeous, plus like you said you don't need much so I bet it would last ages

  2. I love smelling Jo Malone Colognes at the store but I promised myself I would use up the majority of my remaining perfumes before I indulge in one. The issue is going to be choosing just one! I am going to have to find this one and have a whiff, it looks too gorgeous to be real.
