Jo Malone London Sugar & Spice

I have been waiting for what seems like forever for this collection. I love Jo Malone and I have always had a love of foody scents…when the two combine, I was hoping for fragrance heaven. I was not disappointed!

There are five new colognes in the collection and I have been trying out three of them.

Bitter Chocolate & Orange
It’s not Terry’s, it’s mine. Pure and simple chocolate orange. It’s absolutely gorgeous. When it’s sprayed, it’s overwhelmingly chocolate…and whilst it remains very chocolately on the skin, it does settle down a little to become less overpoweringly chocolate and a softer chocolate orange. All the stages this perfume go through are delicious. The only sad thing about this one for me, is that the scent doesn’t last very long on me. A couple of hours maximum.

Elderflower & Gooseberry
Oh this is so delicious. The least foodie scent of the three I’ve been trying out. Described as a “voluptuous gooseberry fool. Crushed, summer-green gooseberries, juicy with lychee, enfolded into the soft delicacy of elderflower”…all of which it is, but there’s something so sweet and creamy about this, it’s just beautiful.

Ginger Biscuit
Finally, Ginger Biscuit. This is just like a freshly baked biscuit. So so good. In it you can detect the warmth of the spices, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. And then there’s caramel. Every single time I wear this I get a compliment. It’s divine.

Of the above three, I love them all, but I’m hard pushed to decide whether Elderflower and Gooseberry or Ginger Biscuit is my favourite. I think maybe I love them both equally but for different reasons. Ginger Biscuit is warming, foody and comforting, Elderflower & Gooseberry is soft, sweet and fruity.


But I won’t rest until I get the other two scents in the range which are also right up my street.

Such a beautiful collection, not only do I like the scents I’ve tried and the sound of the scents I’ve not tried but I also love the pretty pastel coloured labels and all the associated imagery. It’s gorgeous.

I am not sure these scents will appeal to many of the usual Jo Malone fans as they are SO foody… but for this Jo Malone fan, this collection is a dream come true!

The Sugar & Spice Collection is available now from www.jomalone.co.uk and I’m off there as soon as I hit publish!

    I just bought the Bitter Choolate and Orange one! It’s my first ever Jo Malone fragrance so I’m hoping I’ll love it. I thought it was coming out in march so thanks for the heads up 😉
