Jo Malone have launched their newest limited edition collection and it’s a beauty. I know, I know – I’m a massive Jo Malone fan girl so I’m bound to say this. But trust me. This one is a five-fragrance strong collection that just nails it from beautiful bottles to scents that will make you heart-eyes-emoji all over the place.
The theme of the collection if the English Harvest and they have managed to capture it in five unique ways so that there’s bound to be a scent that appeals to you, whatever your personal fragrance taste is.
The five scents in the Jo Malone English Fields Collection are:
- Poppy & Barley
- Primrose & Rye
- Oat & Cornflower
- Honey & Crocus
- Green Wheat & Meadowsweet
Each one comes in a limited edition style of bottle – with two tone soft shades in a sort of ‘stone’ looking texture. They’re definitely the sort of bottles you want on display.
At the launch I got to try all five of the fragrances out and honestly, choosing a favourite was hard! I actually went back into the Jo Malone store in Spitalfields this past weekend to re-sniff them as I can’t stop thinking about how lovely they are and considering treating myself to another one. My top two choices are the Primrose & Rye or the Poppy & Barley.
Primrose & Rye just captures something magically summery about it – like coconut and suncream but with a softer edge to it. So it doesn’t just smell like a ‘holiday’ perfume. Just something very warm and familiar. Then Poppy & Barley manages to merge a soft floral fragrance with something oaty/powdery. I love how this one smells really clean and has that sort of ‘fresh linen’ type of feel to it. Like maybe you hung your clothes out to dry on a line and you live next to a poppy field… Ha, I wish!
All five fragrances manage to capture something really ‘English’ about them. If you like a fragrance like Earl Grey and Cucumber (another of my long term favourites) then I’d suggest trying Green Wheat & Meadowsweet as it has a green-tea note to it. If you prefer the more floral fragrances like Peony & Blush Suede then Honey & Crocus might be your preferred one as it’s probably the sweetest of the selection.
Or if you’re like me then you will probably love them all – I think it’s the softer/oaty side to them. I love fragrances with a powdery sort of edge or a musk note and these all have something like this in them so they really appeal to me.
The Jo Malone English Fields Collection is available now – each bottle is 30ml and £47 (available from John Lewis)
