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.
