If there was an amplication of the word ‘rave’ I’d be using it here. Rave x 1000! I’m really on and off with Jo Malone – nothing seems to really grab me in the way it used to and some of the fragrances I’d run a mile to avoid. Well, round the corner, at least. However, Nashi Blossom is a little treasure and I think it’s because it reminds me so much of the fragrances that the brand used to produce before it got so fancy.
Nashi is an Asian pear – unusual because it looks more like an apple. In the fragrance, the flower, Nashi Blossom, is topped with lemon and given a white musk base which creates a softly rounded citrus that’s warm and vibrant at the same time. There’s a drop of rose in there, too, so the citrus isn’t sharp, and all in all, it’s making me think of the relaxed and warm summer I’d like to have. Whether I get it or not is another matter! And, the bottle! The design is also hitting all the right notes with me – that almost-acid lime shade lid over black and white dots is perfect.
Jo Malone Nashi Blossom launches in May – 100ml is £89 and 30ml is £44. Do try and have a whiff if you are passing a Jo Malone counter.
