Jo Malone 'Vanilla & Anise' Cologne

Jo Malone Vanilla and Anise cologne review and description.

There's one thing I believe and that is you can never have enough perfume, especially if that perfume comes from Jo Malone. All the fragrances I have from her are unique and capture a scent that in my mind can not be replicated. My newest offering is the Vanilla and Anise Cologne, a scent recommended by the gorgeous Stacey from Expat Make up Addict . I had never even smelt this perfume before getting it and bravely sent my husband off shopping for me with a list of a few scents I might like (all recommended by Stacey-she is now my Jo Malone expert on hand!).


 "A modern story of vanilla. The fragile vanilla orchid forms the perfect counterpoint to the oaky caramel-rich vanilla bourbon, spiced with star anise. Warm and enveloping." Jo Malone

The scent is very different to anything else I own. Its placed within the Spice section of Jo Malone family and contains a sweetness (coming from the vanilla), which is soft and delicate and not overpowering at all. It's warm and comforting and at the same time has a light freshness to it which I love. There's a slight musky element to it which gives it warmth and cuts through the sweet vanilla, making it more of an evening perfume for me but its not too rich where it can't be worn during the day.

Within the gorgeous wrapping came a sample of their new fragrance 'Wood Sage & Sea Salt' which is due to be released on the 1st September, and oh my it's stunning! Its so fresh and light with a slight aquatic tone to it and I'm definitely going to be picking it up as soon as its released!

What's your favourite Jo Malone fragrance?
