Fragrance Find - Jo Malone Peony + Blush Suede Cologne


With Spring in full bloom, I was recently searching for a scent that was different from the ones in my collection. I couldn't fully articulate it in words - but when I came across Jo Malone Peony + Blush Suede Cologne. I knew I had found it.  (Plus there's something about the words "Blush Suede" that drew me in).

This scent was love at first whiff and first spray on my skin.  It's a floral, yet very light, with a touch of sweetness (the crisp red apple note) that kept it very simple, clear and fresh on me. Peony is actually my favorite flower, and I think this cologne does a great job at capturing the essence of this gorgeous scent. People from all walks of life, including my little "sporty spice" and hubby said that this smelled really good too - a definite plus.

It has a very feminine feel, and the notes stayed in harmony throughout the day.  Another great surprise was that even though this is a Cologne formulation, it had very strong silage and lasting power on me. The dry down was still fresh and light, with a bit more warmth and a slightly sweeter feel.

This is the perfect Spring scent for the fragrance lover in your life, especially for Mother's Day.  I've tried a lot of the Jo Malone Colognes over the years, but I have to admit, this was the first one that really grabbed me and never let me go. 

I'm also looking forward to adding to it with the Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Body & Hand Wash and even the Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Home Candle very soon! - RLB
