Turning 30 with Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne

Jo Malone, London "Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne".

Nearly a week ago I have turned 30. 

Despite the fact that it was only a few days ago, I feel my life slightly different already.

I love the idea of seeing myself like a "real adult" now (what about when I was 29 then?) and nobody is in need of a proper grown up fragrance more than a lady that just has turned 30 years old. Well, I guess this is what it could have passed through my boyfriend's mind (or should I say fiance' now to be exact) when he got me a brand new shiny wonderful Jo Malone fragrance for my birthday.

I have recently found myself spending who knows how long, staring at Jo Malone's elegant displays in Selfridges, trying all the fragrances, loosing myself in that sophisticated atmosphere and figuring out which one was my favourite, until I found the one..the ONE.

No words would make justice to describe how much I adore the Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne.
Jo Malone divides his colognes in 6 categories and the one I got is part of the fruity category.
There are notes of peach, nectarine and flowers here with hints of acacia honey and it's practically impossible to resist. It is a sweet, very light floral and natural fragrance.
The lasting power is great and you just need a tiny bit of this cologne to last the whole  day long!

What makes this Jo Malone cologne so special, is not just the gorgeous fragrance but the elegant packaging and the beautiful glass bottle.

I think it will take me a while before I can get over this fragrance but for the moment I want to enjoy each drop and associate this lovely smell with the happiest birthday and memories I ever had in 30 years :)

Have you guys tried any Jo Malone's fragrances before? I really want to know which one is your favourite so please leave a comment below and let me know!

  1. Congratulations on turning 30 and fiancee'd! I think what you say about 29/30 is spot on. I had a similar moment when I reached 20 and although it is literally a day's difference, something about really not being able to consider myself a child any more helped me to grow up/find some confidence. I don't know if that makes sense, but I identified with what you say. :)

    The fragrance looks lovely - I've heard good things about Jo Malone and the packaging looks so crisp. Enjoy every drop! xx

    1. Hello hello!
      Thank you very much! I think it's a feeling that we all experience more or less when you " turn a big corner" in life :)
      I love the packaging as well, so simple but so elegant :)
