I took these photos back in Peony season and looking at them is making me crave these big pink fluffy beauties so badly! Nothing to do with the fragrance I hasten to add, but I didn’t have any Mimosa to hand! Jo Malone London Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne is the brand’s biggest launch of the year - available 1st September - and is unlike anything they’ve released before. I’m completely smitten.
“A new bohemia awaits. Mists of honeyed, golden mimosa float above the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom. Creamy tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. Warm, ethereal, mesmerising.”
The slightly bohemian vibe of this fragrance is what sets it apart - and it’s right up my street. Creamy smooth, powdery, musky and gently floral with a touch of spice (can I squeeze in any more adjectives?!). Almost like a gentle version of the Intense Colognes. I tend to think of Jo Malone London scents as fresh and clean cut, whereas this is a little bit smokey and mysterious, yet remains pretty and feminine.
If I had to compare this to another scent in the line it would be Peony & Blush Suede. If you like that, I reckon you’ll love this. A nod to my photos after all!
Jo Malone London Mimosa & Cardamom is available from 1st September in 30/100ml Cologne, Body & Hand Wash, Body Crème and a Home Candle. PS I’ve had a whiff of the candle and it’s going straight to the top of my wish list.
