I’m weirdly particular about the perfumes I wear, and I tend to go for either a big floral or instead something which is clean and fresh. Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom Cologne falls squarely into the latter category.
When I first spray it, I get a huge whiff of freshly peeled oranges. It’s just a pure, fresh, citrus – perfect for Spring! Once it settles down it doesn’t feel identifiable – instead it’s rather like sitting outside in a summer breeze – it’s got a slight white floral background, but the citrus is softened.
I first started wearing the perfume when I lived in Dubai, when all I craved was to feel shower fresh despite soaring temperatures. A quick spritz is all I need to feel refreshed, and I love it so much I’ve even bought the handbag sized version!
