Whenever one of these cream and black boxes pops through the letterbox you know you’re in for something truly special!
Recently launched is Jo Malone’s Angelica & Rain Cologne, part of a new and limited edition range of four scents inspired by London Rain. Jo Malone describes the scent as:
Glassy beads of dew, awakening a London park at dawn. A revitalising scent, enlivened with herbaceous angelica and juicy lime on an earthy base of vetiver. Aqueous and clear.
I adore the ombre bottle – it stands apart from my other Jo Malone fragrances, but still looks chic and understated. The fragrance itself is just perfect for wearing at the start of early spring – when I first apply it, it’s a fresh, clean green scent which feels almost cleansing to apply. Once it dries down, the Angelica becomes stronger, giving some edge to the light fragrance. The perfume has an almost unisex quality which I just adore – as did the woman behind me in Starbucks today, who just ‘had’ to know what I was wearing! I’ve read a description of it as a ‘white shirt’ kind of a fragrance, and I couldn’t agree more! I love wearing this with a crisp white t shirt, blazer, jeans and skinnies – it’s a paired down but still stylish fragrance which I’m going to be consistency throughout the summer.
The perfume costs £82.00 and is available here.
