I cannot help myself in Duty Free. Even though I knew very well I was about to drain my bank account shopping in the states, I had to treat myself to a little something. I had been eyeing up the Jo Malone counter from afar for the past couple of months. The counter is a new(ish) addition to Southampton, and I hadn’t had the opportunity to have a proper look around. To pass the time in Heathrow, I finally had the time to wander around the Jo Malone store and find out what all of the fuss is about.
After 30 minutes of taking in the array of candles and cologne’s, I had found the perfect winter scent. The Wood Sage & Sea salt cologne had my name written all over it, and it stole my heart. I’m lucky enough to live by the sea, and I’m a sucker for anything related to sea salt, so I knew this was something I was going to love before I even tried it out.
I wanted a perfume that was different than anything else I currently own. I wanted something that was more of a toned down scent that would be perfect for day-to-day wear. The Wood Sage & Sea Salt has notes of Amberette Seeds, Sea Salt and Sage which give the perfume a clean, earthy and fresh scent, something that I don’t typically go for. The word ‘Fresh’ is what comes to mind when I spray this on my skin, it’s a very subtle scent that lasts all day, which is why I grab for this most mornings. This is perfect for those who want a break from the typical ‘sweet’ scents and want something that is more sophisticated and more suitable for the colder months.
Jo Malone, you have captured my heart. I think I’m going to love everything you create.
