Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede

I usually opt for 'young' perfumes as I prefer light floral scents as opposed to stronger and spicier scents.    Jo Malone is a brand my mum loves, and has always seemed too mature for me, but I absolutely adore the subtle scent of their Peony & Blush Suede Cologne*. 

I like that this lingers on your skin throughout the day, letting you catch whiffs of the scent every now and then but not being at all overpowering. I love the mildness of this scent, and have been spritzing myself with this every morning, you can pair this up with other scents from the line such as Orange Blossom if you want to up the flirty factor.

Now, I'm not the best at sniffing out scents and noting down what they are so I'm relying on the people at Jo Malone to describe it best...

The floral heart notes that are getting my smell senses in a tingle are of course the light fragrance of peonies, with hints of jasmine, rose, and gillyflower. All mingled with a 'juicy bite' of red apple, which to me is the note that hits my senses on and off throughout the day, and base notes of soft blush suede that lingers on the skin.

I do feel slightly more glam when adorned with this soft and subtle floral scent, definitely can see me picking up a full size bottle once this one runs out. I'm eyeing up some Jo Malone candles for Christmas so my room can smell just as gorgeous....any takers?
