The Fragrances Of The Season: Jo Malone 'English Fields' Collection

Your fragrance says a lot about you. Whether you want to be perceived as youthful fun and flirty, ooze elegance and sophistication, let those around you pick up on your inner minx, or simply want to channel your thirst for fashion and uniqueness, a delicately spritzed scent can help. Although many of us have ‘signatures’ or perfumes we turn to time and time again, many more of us love to change up our scent every season and continually inject a touch of something new into their repertoire. Jo Malone London are one of the few brands that can do no wrong and please my nose with every new scent - especially their seasonal limited edition fragrances which are well thought through and often provide a completely new interpretation that you won’t have seen anywhere else before.

This springtime their latest collection is sure to fill everyone that sniffs it with glee, as it encapsulates everything that’s beautiful about the British countryside; each of the five scents combines a grain with a wildflower, producing a truly smile-inducing concoction that is as beautiful alone as it is combined with others.

Primrose & Rye Cologne
The JML description: "Rolling fields dotted with primroses. Swaying softly on a spring breeze. Warmed by golden corn. Brightened with mimosa. On an addictive base of rye and vanilla. Filled with sunshine. Vivid. Glowing. Addictive." Like warming sunshine on the skin, this refreshing scent contains brightening notes that would work well either in springtime or autumn. Primrose can be a bit naff, but this is a modern and welcome interpretation I really enjoyed.

Honey & Crocus Cologne
The JML description: "Mouth-watering honey, fresh from the beehive. Blended with the bright bloom of crocuses and English lavender. Sweetened with a dash of almond milk. Rich. Comforting. Scrumptious." This is sweet without being sickly, combining the uplifting qualities of a honey base with the floral notes of crocus; considering I usually stay clear of both sweet and floral scents, this is a combination I’d happily spritz on my wrist. 

Poppy & Barley Cologne
The JML description: "Rich red poppies dancing in the wind. Violet flowers, alive with colour. Fruity with blackcurrant. Cocooned by barley and bran. Softened with powdery notes of white musk. Lively. Cheerful. Inviting." A richly earthy scent with fabulous subtle notes of autumnal berries, it’s hard to pinpoint why this is so enticing but it really is. I never thought I'd enjoy the scent of Barley, but it provides a really different twist to an otherwise classic note.

Oat & Cornflower Cologne
The JML description: "Wholesome oats gathered from the field, fit for a hearty feast. Warm and delicious. Enlivened by vivid blue cornflowers and a hint of hazelnut. Complemented by an elegant vetiver base. Mouth-watering. Warm. Sensual." Undoubtedly my fave, this is refreshing and warming without being overwhelming. I love the nutty undertone and the cornflower elements - another note I didn't know I'd appreciate so much - which makes this a fragrance I know I'll love for the seasons to come.

Green Wheat & Meadowsweet Cologne
The JML description: "An English field at dawn, full of the joys of spring. Filled with young, green wheat. Crisp and fresh. Balanced with a zesty twist of grapefruit. Mingled with soft, white notes of meadowsweet. Pretty. Fresh. Powdery." A really bright and citrusy scent, this is really quite beautiful and would work amazingly well combined with something just as fresh. Although the description makes it sound quite feminine, it could really lighten an otherwise heavy fragrance or add a certain something to a more masculine base.

I’d happily wear all five of these scents and struggled to rank them in order of my faves, although I definitely enjoyed Oat & Cornflower the most. A couple of them could definitely be spritzed by men or women, while all could be beautifully combined with existing scents or together to create something even more unique. The bottles are utterly divine and a welcome alternative to the transparent glass bottles we all know and love so well; they would all look beautiful on a dresser and I can see them turning up in blogger flatlays for years to come. (Don't they just look like you want to collect them all?)
