Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede

I love Jo Malone fragrances and every time there's a new release, I'm right there in the queue to test it out. I've already given a loving home to some of the earlier releases this year and since they are limited editions I treasure them and try to make them last as long as possible. As soon as I heard about the release of Peony and Blush Suede a month or so ago, I knew that I had to try it since Peonies are some of my favourite flowers. And as soon as I had tried the fragrance I knew this darling needed to be in my life NOW, so I got myself both the cologne and a candle in this gorgeous scent.

This fragrance is a delightful and light, sheer floral with fruity elements. As you first spray it on you'll immediately notice the wonderful, warm, delicate and slightly "rosy pink" scent of peonies. For me it's such a soft and comforting scent and it reminds me of walking through my mothers garden where I grew up. Even though the cologne opens as a crisp and clean floral, it never becomes too sweet or overpowering, probably because of the clear fruity notes of apples that keeps it airy and fresh. Finally there's is a gentle hint of roses and a barely noticeable jasmine. I'm a huge fan of jasmine, but I'm glad it's not more prominent since I think it might have made the cologne a bit too sweet and heavy. Some of the other Jo Malone colognes are not very long lasting, but I'm positively surprised at how long Peony and Blush Suede lingers after you've sprayed and it leaves a subtle bouquet on your hair and clothes.

I haven't tried the candle yet, since I'm waiting to finish my English Pear and Freesia first but I'm sure it will be amazing, and I can smell the fragrance without even taking off the lid. 

To sum it up this is a striking, elegant and inviting soft scent that could be a modern classic for me. The deluxe feeling of this scent is reinforced with the gorgeous and stylish Jo Malone packaging and the care the shop assistants show when they wrap everything up - it's such a treat to get Jo Malone products!

To me Peony and Blush Suede smells heavenly and it has to be one of the most incredible well balanced scents I have tried for a long time - and since I'm a fragrance fanatic, trying new things almost every week - THAT says a lot!

  8. I want to try their fragrances so bad, but haven't brought myself to shelling out the money for it. I was looking at the Red Roses scent, but this post has made me rethink it. You are great at describing scents and it has me wanting to snatch this up right away! :)
