[unpaid/sample] It’s very much turned out to be fragrance week this week – totally unexpectedly but I’ve enjoyed trying them. This one, Jo Loves Pomelo, I don’t need to try because I already have bottles of it – it’s truly one of my most favourite fragrances – it smells of joy, of summer and of optimism. Pomelo launched in 2011 which is when I got my first bottle and I have never not been without it since then. I’ve introduced friends to it several times so even if I’m not wearing it myself, if we go for an evening out, someone will be. I’m sure you know it because I’ve written about it so much, but Pomelo is a sparkling citrus – it’s light, fresh and energetic. If you don’t like switching to weightier note options for winter, it’s well worth seeking out this ray of sunshine.
But, this is not news – what’s new for this range is a refillable option (remember last week I was saying that refills seemed to have dropped off the agenda somewhat… wrong again!) which cuts out 72% of packaging HERE. They’re available in Bath & Shower Gel, Body Lotion and the Home Candle. I didn’t know that Pomelo is the brand’s best-selling fragrance although I don’t feel at all surprised.
I’m taking a leaf out of my mum’s book here and being pedantic about the fact there is no hand wash. There is a bath and shower gel which of course works perfectly well as a hand wash but I want something that says ‘hand wash’ to make it not feel like I’m somehow wasting it. My mum won’t or can’t use a night cream during the day even if her skin is super dry – she wants it to be a ‘day’ cream. She won’t use a rich day cream at night… and on we go. I’ve inherited this quirk, clearly, in the form of body wash and hand wash. In 2011, there was literally only a Pomelo fragrance but a decade on it comes in every form you could want (except hand wash – oh and a solid soap .. I’d love one of those!). If you’re after decadence, opt for the Bath Cologne, £55, for an absolute immersion, both literally and olfactorily.
