Here are my latest discoveries, with two of them being candles. Please bare with me as I am trying to describe the scents in more ways than just “I love it so much” . After all, I am no Tania Sanchez or Luca Turin.
Jo Loves kindly sent me 2 ml samples of their fragrances when they’ve just launched, and, as you would expect, they are divine.
I would love to have this fragrance, as well now. It is light and fresh rose scent, and I think that a lot of people would enjoy it. It is simple, elegant and not overwhelming, just like all Jo’s creations. The lemon leaves bring a touch of zest-ines (I know it’s not even a word) and balances the rose well. I have a small candle but it throws enough fragrance to fill in even a big room.
The notes of this candle are: top – grapefruit and cardamom; middle – rose and geranium, base – oakmoss and vetiver. Unlike Jo Loves, this scent is a lot sweeter, and it is sexy. I think this is my favourite M&G candle so far, I really appreciate this warm, comforting and exquisite fragrance. Cardamon, rose, vetiver and oakmoss are like a match made in heaven. I honestly can’t stop sniffing this candle like some soft of maniac. I would wear it as a fragrance, as well. But, unfortunately, they do not offer one, I’ve checked. I also think I would like this on a male’s skin. Hello, husband.
Rose combined with warm and spicy cedar, vetiver, musks and guaiac wood is such a winning combination. It is intoxicating and addictive. It makes me personally feel incredible, and it is a 100% my scent. Very helpful description, right? I want a big bottle, as I know I will be wearing it all the time. And I would not share this with anyone, although it is described as unisex. My precious.
Speaking of roses, I still want to try some Frederic Malle perfumes.
