Jo Malone Cologne Set. One Of My Favourite Sets Ever

I forgot that I’ve actually never posted about one of my favourite purchases of this year.  It was the Jo Malone Christmas Cologne set which was a present from myself for myself ;)

I’ve got Lime Basil & Mandarin, Grapefruit, Pomegranate Noir, Red Roses, Orange Blossom and Vanilla & Anise colognes, 9 ml each, for £60.

Regular (30ml) cologne retails for £36 so I think it is an awesome way to try different colognes and to have those that you don’t like that much in a small bottle just to mix it with others.

I loved pretty much all of these colognes. My favourite combination has to be Red Roses and Vanilla & Anise! I also love wearing Orange Blossom on its own.

Red Roses reminds me of the rose jam my Mum used to make when I was a child, this is definitely not a scent for everyone, some may even hate it. But I personally adore it. Vanilla & Anise is just a beautiful warm and a bit spicy scent  which is wonderful. As for Orange Blossom, I think a lot of people may like. It is a blend  of orange flower, water lily  and lilac with oris and vetiver.

There will be a set this year, too. But, unfortunately, I don’t remember the price and the colognes that will be included. I am definitely going to take a look when it’s available. Until then I am lusting after this cologne.

I would like to thank London Makeup Girl for helping me tracking this set down when they most of the sets were sold out.

    Awesome set! I’ve yet to try a Jo Malone perfume, but I love the simplicity of the design!

    Having heard so much about Jo Malone but never trying it before, I took the plunge a few months ago and purchased online Pomegranate Noir and Lime Basil & Mandarin. I love them both and want Lime & Cedar next. It is hard as I rarely get a change to try a tester in store, but I tried Vanilla & Rose intense and that was beautiful. I agree that these minatures are such a good idea, allowing you to try things you may otherwise have ignored, and find out which are your favourites. I think this year’s birthday present to myself will be an afternoon in Selfridges beauty hall! x

      I’ve actually got my set without trying, too. Am really curious what colognes they are going to include this year! And have fun at the Selfridges :) x
