Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Collection

I've been wanting to try out a Jo Malone fragrance for the longest time but with so many different fragrances on offer it was a bit daunting and I didn't know where to begin! When I heard that they were launching the Wood Sage & Sea Salt Collection, I was really intrigued and had to go in for a sniff.

There's so many reviews of this fragrance out there at the moment, and I haven't seen a single negative one as yet. I tend to go for vanilla or floral fragrances, but this is neither. It's incredibly unique in that respect. Inspired by the English seaside, it's fresh, androgynous and damn right addictive. It definitely has a musky edge to it from its sage base note, and I love the crisp and salty quality it has. I literally am obsessed with this fragrance. It's perfect for autumn and winter, but I think you could easily wear this all year round, I know I shall be! It is quite a comforting scent to me, and makes me think of walking across the breezy seaside with my favourite snuggly jumper on.

I picked up the smaller 30ml cologne and went a bit overboard and bought the accompanying body crème too as I love layering fragrances to get the best staying power out of them. On that note, it's worth mentioning that the cologne doesn't have the greatest staying power. I have heard the same of other Jo Malone fragrances too, so for me the body crème is a must. It's super luxurious and leaves my skin so silky and soft. I've been having the most wonderful pamper evenings using this!

If you're looking for a new scent I highly recommend you try this out. The candle is definitely on my wish list now, and so is the body wash which is yet to be launched. The Wood Sage & Sea Salt Collection is a permanent addition to the line and is priced from £40-£82.
