So many new launches from Jo Malone at the moment. Next up is the Lime, Basil & Mandarin Body and Hair Oil – their first foray into a multi-functional oil I think.
Of all the original Jo Malone fragrances, this is my least favourite (my friend’s little daughter calls it her Pesto Perfume) because I’m just not a basil fan. But the oil formula is good – silky, lasting and hydrating – and a great way to fragrance your hair which is something I love to do. When they make this in Orange Blossom you will have to beat me in the queue for it. I do like how they’re paying attention to the older, original scents that were the making of this brand. I seem to remember that when Lime Basil & Mandarin first launched it was revelatory to bring an aromatic herb to mainstream fragrance when we were surrounded by launches such as Julio Iglesias, Spellbound by Estee Lauder and Coty Tribe.
Bottom line here is that if you love the fragrance, you’ll love the oil. It’s launching in July for £42.

Oh My, please JM, PLEASE make an English Pear and Freesia version of this I would literally dunk my head in it! Delicious!
I only imagine how fresh it can smell! I have to try this one!
I treated myself to the cologne intense amber & ginger lily dry oil a few years ago. It was/is DIVINE! Think I definitely need to try this! The only annoying thing is I have no idea of the ingredients, though as long as it doesn’t contain mineral oil I’m happy.
Love this scent and Peony and Blush Suede. Thanks for the great post
