The Perfume Edit.
A few months back I wrote to you all about my discovery of a perfume that I felt suited me and the many struggles I faced trying to find one. Now while that Jo Malone perfume is still a favourite, I want to introduce to you another Jo Malone perfume that have found it's way into my heart. If you saw Sunday's video, then you would of heard me say how I made a sneaky little Jo Malone preorder for a perfume I have been hearing about for months. It seemed to be that every blogger I follow got sent Jo Malone's Wood Sage and Sea Salt all at the same time, and all months before we could actually get it. Hearing all these bloggers talk about how the new fragrance reminded them of the sea and how much they all loved it made my anticipation become almost unbearable.
If you read my last Jo Malone Perfume Review, then you will remember me saying this: I like untraditional scents that provoke memories, and I end up finding myself looking up very strange things on perfume forums like "perfumes that smell like the beach" or "smell like Earl Grey Tea". Having knocked one of my searches of the list with the discovery of Earl Grey Tea and Cucumber, you can only image my excitement and high expectations for Jo Malone's new perfume that claims to knock my other search off the list as well.
This perfume met all my expectations and more. Jo Malone's website describes it as "Escape the everyday along the windswept shore. Waves breaking white, the air fresh with sea salt and spray. Alive with the mineral scent of the rugged cliffs. Mingling with the woody earthiness of sage. Lively, spirited and totally joyful." The scent is supposed to emulate the smell of the British Coasts, but the parallels between them and the Pacific Northwest is evident the second the perfume is sprayed. The moment I smelt this fragrance, I was instantly transported to my favourite place in the world, my cabin. Without being too strong, this perfume is comprised of 3 main tasting notes: Ambrette Seeds, Sea Salt and Sage. The sent perfectly balances the fresh saltiness of the sea with the woodiness of the shore... it's beautiful. Though it is a "beach scent", it is woody enough that it is a fragrance approriate to wear all year long. This perfume has quickly made it's way into my daily routine, and I'm so glad that it is.
