Each Summer (June to be precise), Jo Malone launches a limited edition blossom based fragrance, a scent I look forward to each and every year and the one launch that never fails to leave me wanting more; from the light and dreamy notes of last years Jo Malone Blue Skies and Blossom collection, to the ever missed Jo Malone Silk Blossom Cologne of 2014. If I look forward to one annual fragrance launch each year it has to be this. Unsurprisingly 2016's offering is just as beautiful, if not more so than the previous blossom tinged colognes, let me introduce you to Jo Malone Nashi Blossom Cologne.
I'v really been enjoying the new direction some of the latest Jo Malone fragrance launches have been taking - the various hues of green glass from the Herb Collection and now the fun polka-dot adorned glass bottle and flash of green bottle cap especially designed for the Nashi Blossom Cologne. Yes it is fun but not in a tacky or garish sense and it beautifully reflects the fragrance nestled inside. I can't help but think this would also be a great introduction to Jo Malone for those who are a little younger than the typical high-end consumer - graduation and prom are just around the corner after all.
Jo Malone Nashi Blossom Cologne is a delicate yet zesty, citrus based fragrance that is bright yet fresh at the same time. Forget sticky, overly sweet scents that tend to be order de jour at this time of the year, the subtle notes of Jo Malone Nashi Blossom Cologne are perfectly refreshing and balanced to suit the balmy days of Summer; think trails of soft lemon, pear, apple, Nashi Blossom and rose, all intermingled with a creamy musk base. I should also add that this is one of the few Jo Malone fragrances I have encountered that layers and partners well with just about every other cologne within the range - great for injecting a little light and zest into some of the heavier colognes.
Jo Malone Nashi Blossom Cologne will launch this coming June (30ml/£44 and 100ml/£89) and will be limited edition.
