Jo Malone Blue Hyacinth and Leather & Artemisia ~ fragrance reviews

Jo Malone Blue Hyacinth and Leather & Artemisia ~ fragrance reviews

Meet the springtime limited collection from Jo Malone. Once again, the collection has an appropriately English theme. These five fragrances — Blue Hyacinth, Garden Lilies, Leather & Artemisia, Tobacco & Mandarin and Whisky & Cedarwood — were reportedly inspired by the Bloomsbury Group and artist Vanessa Bell's Charleston House in Sussex. I say "reportedly" because that information was shared in early press releases, although the Jo Malone website now only refers vaguely to "free spirited artists" living "an unconventional life in their legendary country house."

Agonist Floralust ~ fragrance review

Agonist Floralust ~ fragrance review

Are you reading for winter? Short days are all the better for reading while wrapped in a quilt, and I love fires and big pots of soup. But this year, by mid-February, I’d had enough. Please, I thought, no more walking on sodden ground. No more bicycle commutes that end with me slopping my wet clothes into the bathtub and shivering until the furnace kicks in. No more gray sky, gray earth and gray attitude.

My ambitions don’t reach as far as world domination like Napoleon Bonnaparte, fragrances suffused with citrus nevertheless feature prominently in my perfume wardrobe. Few aromas are more uplifting and rejuvenating, and their versatility makes colognes an easy fragrance type to adapt to various moods and occasions.

Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria ~ fragrance review

Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria ~ fragrance review

I am in favor of the fancy niche fragrances, such as the Calvin Klein Euphoria.  I have made a visit to Lord & Taylor during a lunch break, spraying some Euphoria on my arm, and swooning in delight. I couldn't wait to describe my reaction on MakeupAlley that evening: "Oh my! I felt as though I'd been kissed."
