Delving Into Jo Malone Fragrances


I've heard of Jo Malone products, particularly the candles, for quite some time now. But I've never actually taken that much interest because of the pricing. However, when I was in Newcastle last Sunday, I was pondering about the beauty hall (which I've never actually looked in before, surprisingly!) and spotted the Jo Malone section. I thought it looked ridiculously posh and actually got a bit intimidated and just sort of left it without trying anything, but I went again with my boyfriend and actually had a look around. 

For starters, I really think there's a fragrance for everyone at Jo Malone and love how they categorise their fragrances to make it easier for you to choose something you'd like. I was instantly drawn to the "fruity" category. I love fruity fragrances no end, and much prefer them to more floral fragrances. I was actually testing the Nectarine Blossom and Honey fragrance, but ended up spraying Pomegranate Noir on myself (is i t bad to use the testers on yourself, whoops) and waltzed out thinking it was too expensive and I'd wait for a payday in the next few months. 

After wandering around town for a few hours repeatedly telling my boyfriend how good I smelled, I caved and ended up getting it. I can not praise their customer service enough, the packaging is absolutely stunning and the woman I dealt with was so helpful. 

Now that I've shared my story of actually buying the fragrance, I should probably tell you about it. Pomegranate Noir is described as "the sensuality of a daring red dress. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. A dark and enigmatic fragrance." Now I don't know about you, but that just sounds like the most gorgeous perfume to me. It honestly smells divine, and not only that, but it lasts the entire day! As it really is on the pricey side, I've told myself I'm saving it for special occasions and so on, but I probably wont stick to that. I told myself the same about my L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil, and I use it everyday! 

I don't think I could pay the whole £76 at one point for the 100ml, because that to me is just too steep. Not going to lie though, I probably would if I were rich! The packaging as you can see is very simplistic, in my opinion I think that's what makes it feel so luxurious. It will definitely be a one to sit pretty on your dressing table, I'll tell you that.

I forgot to mention, the SA at Jo Malone also gave me an invitation for a free hand and arm massage for two ! It doesn't have an expiry date, so I'll be keeping that one!

Have you tried any Jo Malone fragrances? Do you think the price is justified or would you rather buy a cheaper perfume?

  1. I so want a Jo Malone fragrance just for their simplistic and sophisticated packaging. I think i will get one soon but i need to smell all their scents first to choose one that i like and then maybe put it on my wishlist :) Yep i will probably just get the 30ml bottle too because it means that you can get a couple of scents rather than just one 100ml one. I think the price is perfect for it's quality, and besides some other perfume brands are around the same price but don't last as long! Thanks for sharing, im going shopping now :)

    1. The packaging really is stunning, isn't it? I totally agree with your comment about other brands, I recently spend £36 on one of the new DKNY Delicious scents and although I think it smells lovely, it can be a bit overpowering and doesn't last half as long as this! Think I know what I'll be requesting for my birthday this year :)

  5. I've heard SO much about Jo Malone but I've been pretty afraid of trying any of their products in fear of actually taking the plunge and purchasing something super expensive, hahaha.
