Gift Guide: Discover 5 The Best Jo Malone Scents For Women

When I think of Jo Malone I think of it brings up happy memories of going to the store and smelling every single scent I could get my hands on. Me and my friends have probably spent an age in there, trying every single perfume – don’t get me started on the candles! It’s just so addictive because they are all so good. I just had to put together the 5 best Jo Malone scents for women because I know how hard it can be to choose.

I think the best thing about Jo Malone perfume is that they are so honest and transparent in the scent you are getting. The Earl Grey and Cucumber actually smells like Earl Grey and Cucumber, the English Pear and Freesia smells like English Pear and Freesia, and the Wood Sage and Sea Salt is exactly that! Even though you know what to expect, it is still such a surprise to the senses when you inhale that tester. Eventually you collect so many paper arrows that you don’t know what to do with yourself.

Expect to find out my 5 recommendations for the best Jo Malone scents for women, including who each perfume might suit and for what occasion. Hopefully this will make it easier to pick a perfume whether your buying for yourself or someone else. Or maybe you’re just curious and want to learn a little bit more about Jo Malone scents!

The Best Jo Malone Scents For Women…

1. English Pear and Freesia

If you are looking to play it safe then English Pear and Freesia is the way to go. And let me tell you now that safe doesn’t mean boring! I love this scent and there is a reason it is one of their bestsellers. This fragrance is a true OG because it was actually one of the first perfumes released that captured the hearts of many Malone fans.

What Does It Smell Like?

Imagine fresh juicy pears on a bed of blooming white freesias. This scent is then softened by amber, patchouli and woods. It is the epitome of autumn and perfect for everyday wear.

Top Note: King William Pear
Heart Note: Freesia
Base Note: Patchouli

2. Wood Sage and Sea Salt

Wood Sage and Sea Salt is definitely a more musk fragrance, which is something I love. As a lovely earthy and woody scent it is great for evening wear if you prefer something light and floral in the day. It is a very cosy scent that will give you warmth in the winter months. Imagine being sat by the fire of a beach house while the waves are breaking on the rocks outside, splashing the air with sea salt spray.

What Does It Smell Like?

The sage provides earthy, aromatic moments whilst the sea fresh adds a freshness to the whole scent. You then have ambrette seeds which wraps the fragrance together giving it a sophisticated quality.

Tasting Notes: Ambrette Seeds; Sea Salt; Wood Sage.

3. Jasmine Sambac and Marigold

This fragrance is from Jo Malone Intense range, so it is much heavier than other scents such as the light and airy Wild Bluebell perfume. If your love strong, floral and feminine notes this is for you. As a very versatile fragrance that can be worn day through to night it is loved by many.

What Does It Smell Like?

The white, heady floral Jasmine is enveloped by the rich and fruit Marigold, all supported by rich aromatic Benzoin. All mellowed out by vanilla and amber.

Top Note: Marigold
Heart Note: Jasmine Sambac
Base Note: Benzoin

Pomegranate Noir is probably one of Jo Malone’s most iconic scents. Dark and mysterious, this fragrance will have everyone dying to know what your wearing. This sexy scent is ideal for date night or when your looking to set the mood.

What Does It Smell Like?

It smells like smokey Guaiacwood and fresh lilies with a hint of pink pepper. The warm and spicy scent is lifted and brightened by the aroma of exotic pomegranate.

Top Note: Pomegranate
Heart Notes: Casablanca Lily; Guaiacwood.
