Springtime is for taking long strolls in the crisp air of the outdoors. Before the the first bloom arrives, reeds and weeds thrive alongside with the occasional wild flower. This is the thing I miss most about living in the northern hemisphere, which is probably the reason why I am always thrilled by Jo Malone’s spring releases. I love how the brand always bring us outdoors this time of the year, and this season, Jo Malone has elevated the lowly weeds and wild flowers that most people pass over without a second glance.

For the title of this post, I really wanted to write “I lost my cherry to Tom Ford…” which is a cheeky pun that makes utterly no sense of course, but in a strange turn that was what happened to me. Cherry notes generally do not rank high on my list of fragrance preferences, and I have a strong version to the sickening sweet variety used by many mainstream brands. So admittedly, I was only mildly interested in the new Tom Ford Private Blend for its packaging. I mean, who can resist the cherry red encased in clear glass bottle? But one spritz of Lost Cherry, and I was utterly and completely besotted.

I am constantly surprised by Jo Malone’s ability to keep on reinventing itself and keep us fans on our toes. It is not an easy job to regularly push out new and exciting fragrances, and Jo Malone has really impressed me with its latest Bronze Wood & Leather. The notes hint at something quite innovative, and the combination of wood and leather is something I’ve never seen before, so I was deeply intrigued.

Fall is upon us again, and in many ways, it is my favorite season of the year. I love the cooler climate combining with a certain richness in the air to emit a beguiling fragrance. Last year, Jo Malone London took us deep into the English forest; and this time around we are taking a walk through the woodlands as evening falls… twining between trees and shrubs, honeysuckle flourishes. Its red tinted blooms and fruits emitting a sweet, heady scent that changes throughout the day.

Tom Ford has always been known for his irreverence towards societal norms and overt sexuality. And in a stroke of marketing brilliance, Mr. Ford has decided to call his latest Private Blend fragrance exactly as it is – Fucking Fabulous.

Nothing spells summer more perfectly than tropical colours so bright you can barely open your eyes, and an air so heavy with the fragrance of ripened fruity that you can almost taste it. This season, Jo Malone has managed to encapsulate the quintessence of summer in a bottle that is the most exceptional yet!
