Luscious scents: Peony and Blush Suede from Jo Malone London

Peony and Blush Suede Collection

Warning: This post is very pink!

I was thrilled to be asked to try to newest offering from Jo Malone London, a perfume from their Peony and Blush Suede collection…

Peony & Blush Suede Cologne from Jo Malone

And, as you never know what some of these things might be like, it was a relief when it turned out to be truly luscious.

I opened the sublime packaging (a beautiful box with pink tissue paper and a peony card, in a lovely gift bag) when I got back to my car (having collected the mail from the post office) and tested it straight away, before proceeding to drive home in a perfectly delightful haze of happiness.

It is, not surprisingly, a floral fragrance which is my favourite type, and I’m obsessed with peonies, so the marketing people certainly targeted me well!

It was created by Master Perfumer, Christine Nagel, with the primary ingredients being: top note of red apple, heart of peony and base note of suede. In more detail:

  • The top notes are red apple, fresh almond and bergamot
  • The heart notes are peony, jasmine sambac, rose, and gillyflower
  • The base notes are suede, patchouli and amberwood.

As I occasionally layering my scents to create further lusciousness, you could also consider combining the Peony and Blush Suede perfume with other Jo Malone’s English Pear & Freesia or Orange Blossom fragrances.

You’ll only know what works for you via trial and error, but avoid doing it if you’re rushing out the door and don’t have time to shower if you’re unhappy.
