Smelling like a dessert can be dangerous. Also very delightful!
While browsing the latest fragrances at Nordstrom, I came across this delicious table of desserts, fake ones but they caught my eye. Each dessert represents a limited edition perfume from the Sugar & Spice Jo Malone fragrance collection. I've never tried on a Jo Malone perfume before but with names like lemon tart and ginger biscuit, how could I resist?
I can't, I smelled each one! I really wish they were sold as a whole set since it was really hard to choose a favorite.
Each bottle costs $60.
Here's my review:
The fragrances from left to right are:Redcurrant & Creme: Raspberry notes, like a sweet custard with a dollop of creme fraiche on top.
Bitter Orange & Chocolate: Smells exactly like you would expect, also the bitter orange reminds me of actual bitters in an old time-y cocktail, well balanced with the dark chocolate.
Ginger Biscuit. Warm and toasty, very vanilla spice latte-esque when I think about it.
Elderflower & Gooseberry: Mmmm think fresh, lychee, and muddled cucumber. Perfect for a light scent on a warm spring afternoon.
Lemon Tart: Very lemon-y, sour with hints of herbs and meringue. If you are a lemon treat kinda person this is for you. Not really my thing.
I left with my wrists spritzed with Bitter Orange & Chocolate. I can't stop smelling myself. I will return for this one.
You can buy it at Nordstrom or here: Jo Malone London
