I was so sure I wouldn’t like this fragrance! But, as it turns out Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt is a new favourite. I don’t like green, herby scents because I always think they are best left in the kitchen – I didn’t like Lime, Basil & Mandarin very much at all so I’m wary of any fragrance that has a herb as a headline.
However, the inspiration for Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt is a windswept shore and woody earth (there’s loads more but my eyes are rolling) and I can really get that from this. It’s got that fresh air ozonic, mineral scent and gentle, green florals. It’s not, to my nose, herby at all and I pick up woody-floral notes even though there aren’t any flowers in the composition that I can see.
Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt settled into my skin very quickly – so there isn’t a lot of difference to the scent I sprayed over three hours ago. It stays pretty much as it arrives, after the alcohol disappears. I think if you want a scent that isn’t typical and sends you back to in time to a British summer beach and all the memory bank triggers this might have, it’s a beautiful autumn fragrance that will remind you of so many good things.
Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt launches in September from £40 for a 30ml cologne.

Gosh, this sounds exactly like the kind of scent I would love.
Sounds perfect for the fall! I’ve never been a fan of woodier scents but this sounds like it might be worth a sniff! I’d love to try something less floral when the seasons start to change!
