As part of a trio, collectively known as ‘Blossom Girls’, Sakura Cherry Blossom is back again. It sits alongside Nashi Blossom and Plum Blossom to form the ‘girls’ but in fact, all of these are re-releases of past fragrances. The only difference between Blossom Girls and Blue Skies & Blossoms from 2015 is Nashi instead of Osmanthus. Great for me, because I love Nashi! What I’m really noticing about bring-backs, not just from this brand but from others too, is that people who are thrilled at a second chance to get hold of an old favourite never find them quite as lovely as first time around, even when the composition is no different. That’s the risk of limited editions – that if you bring them around again, they inevitably disappoint because they’ve been built differently in memory than reality.
I have, of the three, Sakura Cherry Blossom and if you’re into light and airy florals, there’s really nothing not to like. It’s a combination of cherry blossom, rose and violet with a little kick of bergamot but it’s the violet note for me that really sets it apart. The feel is light, fresh and pretty – everything that spring should be and possibly the perfect bridal fragrance for a spring time wedding. It captures in scent all the romance of a dewy May day. There’s only the 100ml option and it’s £95 HERE.

I have been obsessed with Jo Malone Sakura Cherry Blossom since I discovered it while on holiday in Dubai a few years ago and was so upset when I finished the bottle so tried to track down replacements online. As much as I adore it, £95 is a little too much of a treat for a fragrance. A shame they are only making available in 100ml
I thought that – a smaller more affordably bottle would have been better.
