We need to cast back to the Sugar & Spice collection from 2013 to discover the origins of this difficult to track down fragrance. It’s only stocked in the Jo Malone Regent Street Store. I remember the launch of Sugar & Spice (my original review is HERE) where I absolutely hated this fragrance! So, the fact that now I find it beautifully comforting and immensely wearable is a complete mystery. Maybe the fact that it originally launched in spring is key. Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit Cologne is such an autumnal fragrance, softly spiced and slightly sweet and the olfactory equivalent of a caramel cashmere wrap that it seems its time is now.
Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit Cologne retains its sweet ginger notes for some time before becoming more of a warm ginger-cinnamon scent after the vanilla fades. There is no floral aspect but I felt after a few hours I could get a general flowery scent from this. I think it’s going to behave differently on everyone – I’m still not keen on foodie fragrances that make you smell like you spend all your time in the kitchen, but this is so uplifting in the morning chill that I’d count it as good-mood maker.
Jo Malone 100ml Colognes are £86 – I don’t have an exact price for this one but I will assume it’s the same.
