Jo Malone Blossom Belle Collection 2017 Reviews

Spring has sprung...well almost, we shall ignore the bizarre smattering of cold weather and snow that clouded UK weather reports as of late. I may not be able to conjure brighter days but I can nudge you in the direction of three beautiful and sadly limited edition Jo Malone fragrances that form the Blossom Belle Collection - I dare you not to fall in love with at least one.

If the Jo Malone Blossom Belle Colognes sound familiar in name it is because they are re-launches of past, limited edition collections (2012-2014) that have been dusted off and celebrated one more time - great if you missed out on the first drop, or perhaps fell in love with one of the scents and longed to replace it as the years ticked by. I also happen to adore the pastel bottle caps and labels, complete with a pretty satin ribbon that adorns the re-launches - such touches beautifully encapsulate the light, fresh and dare I say it Spring ready scents held within each large, glass bottle.

Jo Malone Blossom Belle Collection 2017 Reviews

The three colognes available within the Jo Malone Blossom Belle Collection are:

Jo Malone Plum Blossom Cologne (lilac details) - Originally launched in 2012, this floral, woody come musky concoction is perfect for those who aren't quite a fan of fruity florals or overly delicate fragrances and yet would like something lighter for the warm weather. It has a certain robustness due to the notes of plum, plum blossom, jasmine, ylang-ylang, sandalwood and white musk. This is by far the strongest of the three but despite it's fruity notes it never becomes tart nor cloying; a great choice particularly if you enjoy muskier fragrances.

Jo Malone Osmanthus Blossom Cologne (green details) - By far my favourite of the trio; a light, green and ultimate fresh fragrance that sits wonderfully on the skin and is my current go-to everyday fragrance. Jo Malone Osmanthus Blossom Cologne has fruity notes of apricot and orange blossom and yet it has a certain maturity that other sweet fragrances don't - perhaps it is the addition of the cashmere wood and petite grain notes. Ultimately if you enjoy fresh, clean and easy to wear fragrances this is one you'll find difficult to pass up on.

Jo Malone Silk Blossom Cologne (pink details and not photographed) - I own a bottle of Jo Malone Silk Blossom Cologne from it's first launch way back in 2014 (complete with pretty pink, tassel) and as such had to dig it out to gauge my thoughts once again. In my opinion it is very floral and powdery, although in no way identical it has similar qualities to Jo Malone Peony and Blush Cologne - if you like one, I'd imagine you'd like the other. Notes include: apricot, bergamot, pepper, silk flower, jasmine, rose, heliotrope and moss - a lovely, unforgettable fragrance that apparently a good few readers in the past chose for their wedding day.

The only downside Jo Malone Blossom Belle Collection is that it is a travel exclusive, meaning you will have to visit a World Duty Free location to purchase any one of the three colognes - perhaps you already have an upcoming trip or know a loved one travel that you could perhaps persuaded to pick you up a bottle or two on their travels? 

The Jo Malone Blossom Belle Collection retails for 100ml/£73.60 each.
