"You Smell SO Good!"

jo malone mimosa and cardamon

I have a hell  of a lot of perfumes in my stash, seriously way wayyyy too many.  I tend to stick to the same sort of scents (holla at you Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess & Versace Crystal Noir), However I’ve recently been really drawn to the Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamon Perfume. Every single time I’ve worn this perfume I’ve had someone comment on how good I smelt.

I know perfume descriptions can be a bit fluffy but here’s their take on the scent:

“A new bohemia await. Mists of honeyed, golden Mimosa float about the spiciness of freshly crushed Cardamom. Creamy Tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. warm, ethereal, mesmerising.”

I don’t think it’s actually supposed autumnal scent (Im always SO unseasonal with my fragrance!) but it’s really warming and comforting so suits the current weather really in a odd sort of way. It’s an unusual scent, I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything like it before or have anything remotely similar in my scollection. It’s sort of fresh, florally and spicy all at the same time without being heady or too youthful. Think warming spice rather than peppery spicy and crisp floral rather than old lady floral. The notes of Mimosa, Cardamon and Tonka Bean blend really nicely together and perfectly compliment each other really well. It has a sweetness thats complimented really nicely with the deeper tones. It’s a really modern and exotic fragrance at the same time and just works as a good all rounder scent.

Prices range from £42-£85.


  1. Sounds gorgeous, will definitely give this a whiff next time I'm near a JM counter. My only issue is that the JM scents I've tried don't seem to last on my skin. One of my all time favourites is Blackberry & Bay but after an hour, I literally can't smell it!

  8. I love spicy, deep scents (especially Tom Ford, oh my) and this would be a lovely light spritz to enhance that more autumnal feeling in the air

  15. The way they describe the scent makes it really intriguing, I can't figure out what it'd smell like but it does make me want to go and smell it! I'd never heard about this one, Jo Malone have so many different fragrances and most of them are amazing!

  23. I love Jo Malone scents but haven't bought this one yet! Blue Agave and Cacao is ym favourite <3


  24. How popular is Jo Malone? I mean, I swear everyone is raving on and on about how incredible every single fragrance smells at the moment (well, actually for a long time now). How I don't have my own really beats me, but it needs to happen!

  25. Sounds gorgeous! I adore Jo Malone fragrances, pear and fresia is my all time fave.

  26. I recently had a big clear out of my perfume collection as it was getting a little out of hand, but I believe the newly freed up space gives me room to try one more... So I'll be looking out for this scent, as it sounds lovely.

    My personal favourite scent is Valentina by Valentino, and I also love Covet by SJP - yes it's a celebrity scent, but every single time I wear it it draws a compliment, and you can't really argue with that :)

    Er, sorry for saying scent about a million times...

  27. That sounds so gorgeous!!


  28. I really want to try one but they're so expencive :(

  40. I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my husband return back to me, and today with all due respect I want to say a big thank you KING PESO for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my children. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. A day came i came across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Sarah Jame ,she testified about how he brought back her husband back in less than 24hrs, and at the end of her testimony she dropped KING PESO e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give him a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. and he give me some instruction i follow it within 48hrs, my husband came back to me Am so happy now that KING PESO, help me bring my life back to me. Thanks so much... his email: pesokingspellcaster@gmail.com
