Aside from sunshine, there’s one key thing that gets me in the mood for spring: fragrance. Jo Malone is one of my favorite perfume brands and they do so many amazing scents. Just visit any of their boutiques or counters and instantly see why. The scents are layerable and so collectible. The 1 oz spray bottle size currently retails for $75 and it’s the perfect travel size for a little dose of daily luxury. I haven’t tried them all, but there are several Jo Malone scents that immediately come to mind when I think of spring. Many of these I wear consistently right into summer. They all just instantly lift my mood. So here is my take on the best Jo Malone scents for spring.
Blackberry & Bay
This was my 2021 signature scent for spring and summer. I nearly used up my entire 1 oz bottle just keeping it in my purse! Blackberry & Bay is a fresh and subtly sweet scent that feels so good. It smells clean and warms up on my skin. I would never imagine bay leaf working in a fragrance, but with this it really balances everything out. It’s like smelling a blackberry bush just before the fruit ripens fully.
Basil & Neroli
Basil & Neroli is the newest addition to my perfume collection which I picked up last week at The Village at Corte Madera. While the neroli blossom is front row and center, it has a uniquely earthy quality to it. To me, the scent is uplifting and invigorating. It’s clean, earthy, woody, and floral all at the same time. It also reminds me of vacation and spring break. If you like Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, you’ll love this!
Peony & Blush Suede
Peony & Blush Suede is the quintessential Jo Malone spring scent. It’s pretty, it’s floral, it’s feminine, with a kiss of sweet fruitiness. Peonies are one of the first flowers that come to my mind when I think of spring. It’s no wonder this is one of Jo Malone’s best selling scents!
Nectarine Blossom & Honey
If you’re into fruity floral scents, Nectarine Blossom & Honey is for you. With this one I smell sliced nectarines and peach skin, fresh cut flowers, and subtle honey. It’s youthful and feminine. Like Blackberry & Bay, this sent has a fresh green quality to it which just screams spring.
If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, I recommend dropping by the Jo Malone boutique at The Village at Corte Madera. They do free engraving services on perfume purchases. The team there are also so knowledgable and friendly! The store is located across Madison Reed Color Bar.
