Jo Malone - Wild Fig and Cassis Cologne

Wild Fig and Cassis Cologne

This is such a gorgeous fragrance, especially for Autumn/Winter... and as the days are cooling off (and filled with rain), i'd say now is about the time to start embracing the chill. (Almost).

It's a very woody and heady smell, with a strong, deep note of wild fig. I personally love wild fig, I burn lovely figgy candles year round (especially in Autumn), and to me it's very earthy yet exotic. It may not be to everyone's taste, so where possible i's definitely recommend a cheeky try-before-you-buy. 

I think it's a very sensual scent, it's almost unisex in the rough, animalistic, woody notes... but the wild cassis (blackcurrent), lifts it to an irresistible feminine fragrance. I receive nothing but compliments when I wear this smell, and it really gets me excited for the cold months ahead, (Winter fashion is the best...), plus it's perfect for those log fire evenings, and swanky (or not) Christmas parties. 

Available for £39 for 30ml from HERE

All Boxed Up

Plus, how gorgeous is the Jo Malone Packaging. I want to live in a world of Cream and Black, with the entire air frangranced with their wonderful scents. But that's another story for another day... Although, as an aside, I highly recommend you try their new Peony and Suade, which was just released this month. It is definitely on my to buy list....So watch this space!

Lots of Lovely Love,
