Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne

Nicola Chapman
The latest collection from Jo Malone represents the struggle of holding onto the last remnants of summer but also secretly welcoming in the cosy evenings perfectly. 
 Mimosa is a beautiful evergreen tree typically grown in warmer climates. The swaying branches holding the delicate puffs of yellow are often used in Indian chutneys, all adding to the bohemian feeling of this scent.
 Cardamom is also widely used in far eastern cooking. This ancient spice which sits behind saffron and vanilla in the line up for the worlds most expensive spice fits nicely into the Jo Malone line up of fragrance ingredients.

We initially thought this may be quite a spicy fragrance and overly heady but it's the total opposite.
 Softly floral with a delicate soapiness to it. The cardamom gives it the warmth and longevity on the skin.
 Other ingredients include creamy tonka bean and sandalwood. The purple heliotrope flower gives this fragrance a slightly almond scent and damask rose for a floral kick.
 We will be dousing ourselves in this fragrance this autumn!
 The line up for this collection includes cologne, body créme, hand wash and home candle. A 30ml bottle of the cologne is £42.00 and 100ml is £85.00.
 This fragrance will be available from September 2015 at
 If you are feeling creative head over to the Jo Malone website where you can create your own bohemian tile in honour of this collection.

  5. Nice collection!! Look so lovely!!!
    Love from {a lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and food blog}

  6. Sounds really nice and if I'm honest, there probably isn't a scent by them I wouldn't wear. Perfume isn't something that I buy myself and is more of a Christmas present thing. I'm sure a Jo Malone scent will be on there xoxo

  7. Really love my Jo Malone candle and can't wait to try these fragrances. Thanks for sharing!
