Jo Malone Star Magnolia Hair Mist

I’m pretty sure you’ll see nothing but raves for this – it’s currently on the send out – but much as I love a hair mist, and the brand couldn’t have made this any prettier, magnolia is not the thing I want to smell of. Of all the flipping flowers in the whole world, I just cannot imagine why anyone would pick that one. It’s as bland in olfactory nature as it is in colour form on a wall.

It’s saved, thankfully, by a dash of orange flower, lemon and some jasmine, which I love, and while the magnolia brings some green notes and freshness to it, it’s the least of this mist. To be honest, I’d have been all over a lemon hair mist (imagine that beautiful collar in a vibrant yellow over the white bottle) or even a jasmine hair mist. There’s a cologne (in two sizes) as well, and the mist is a lighter concentrate of that with a dash of shine inducing conditioners. I can see it working very well as a post-wash and dry treat as long as you don’t have highly scented shampoos or conditioners otherwise I think they’d win the olfactory fight.

It launches in May for £44(50ml) and the cologne is £46 (30ml).
