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.
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.
