The only reason why I bought Red Roses was to layer under my existing bottle of Nectarine Blossom & Honey [Review Here]. It is a combination that I have tested out over and over in-stores and I absolutely adore it. I find Red Roses on its own starts a bit too sharp for my taste, but as a scent foundation, it neutralizes the fruity sweetness of NB&H, resulting in a light floral scent. It is my current absolute favorite fragrance combination.
While Red Roses was a well-planned purchase, White Jasmine & Mint was much more spontaneous. I went shopping with my friend CW at Selfridges and I sprayed a bit of the WJ&M on my wrist at the Jo Malone counter. After wearing it for a day (and with my friend's blessings on the fragrance and my body chemistry), I bought it the next time I was in Selfridges. As with Jo Malone scents, this one is nothing like anything I have ever smelled. The mint makes the soft floral appear more fresh and energetic. Unexpectedly, there is also a strong presence of citrus in the scent that dominates both the jasmine and the mint. I like it so far, but only time will tell whether this fragrance will make it into my favorites.
I currently own three Jo Malone fragrances and I hope to add more to my collection. I love the uniqueness of the scents and the bottle design is simply timeless. I can spritz these in the morning and I would still be able to smell them at the end of the day. These 30mL retails for £38 each.
Which is your favorite fragrance combination?
