Let me introduce a little bit of floral fancy, Jo Malone’s new Peony and Blush Suede collection. I’ve literally coveted this fragrance for so long that when I turned the page to a free sample in Vogue’s October issue, I squealed. Yes, I squealed at Jo Malone.
Peonies are my favourite flower and I am a little obsessed with my Jo Malone Red Rose bath oil, so I was ridiculously excited to smell this scent. I would describe it as Grown Up Femininity. Think of a quintessentially English garden full of pretty pink peonies – add a glass of champagne, strawberries and a perfectly preened woman wearing a strand of pearls with a Chanel bag by her side. This is the image that comes to my mind.
Peony and Blush Suede is an incredibly floral scent and quite strong, although not overpowering.
- The top notes are red apple, fresh almond and bergamot
- The heart notes are peony, jasmine sambac, rose, and gillyflower
- The base notes are suede, patchouli and amberwood.
The collection includes cologne, body and hand wash, body creme and the candle but unfortunately I can’t seem to find anything on a bath oil. I would LOVE a bath oil in this scent. Regardless, with a stunning scent and the typical Jo Malone luxurious packaging, any of the items from the collection would make the perfect present.
The Peony and Blush Suede candle is at the top of my Christmas wish list!
