Jo Malone: Earl Grey & Cucumber

I got given this fragrance three weeks ago as a gift from my sister at her wedding – she gave each of us bridesmaids plus the Mothers involved a bottle. I thought it was such a special idea as she had spent hours in the Jo Malone store choosing a fragrance she felt best suited each of us. I couldn’t have chosen better myself!

I got give the Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne which sounds really strange but has to be up there with my top three scents I’ve ever smelt. This was originally a limited edition, but was bought back by popular demand as a permanent fragrance.  I was so chuffed with it and definitely one that I will repurchase over and over again because it reminds me of her special day and, obviously, because I just adore it.

The cologne  is a delightful blend of Earl Grey tea, Cucumber, Bergamot, Vanilla, Musk and Beeswax. It’s wearable for day and night as it’s light but powerful – it has some serious staying power but it isn’t overbearing at all. It literally sums up a lazy summers day, yet still very fresh and sparkling.  I’m going to try and layer this with my other favourite, Wild Bluebell, and see what I come up with. Next on my list is Velvet Rose & Oud.

I love the Jo Malone scents and the fact that you can layer one on top of the other for an interesting blend – my sister used Lime, Basil & Mandarin combined with Blue Agava & Cacao, by far the most beautiful wedding scent she could have opted for.

So excited to try more from this brand – hoping I can try and find the candle and diffuser in Earl Grey & Cucumber. R620 for 30ml’s, R1300 for 100ml.

    I'm wearing Earl Grey & Cucumber right now, it's a very pretty scent, but it doesn't last long on my skin 🙁

    I do have Wild Bluebell too, which I love wearing in spring time. The Jo Malone store is such a temptation!

    It seems to last pretty well on my skin, but every now and again I do top it up. I remember I went to an Estee Lauder launch and they said perfume should be refreshed every 3 hours… But yes, agreed, Jo Malone is far too tempting and far too expensive here in SA Rands 🙁

    Oo what a lovely gift for bridesmaids (sister). I had a jar of Jo Malone body cream from my far cousin on her wedding day. We flew over to her Destination Wedding, the nuptials was held in June and the English pear & freesia scent just perfect for an early summer days ✨
