When it comes to fragrances, unlike with skincare, I welcome samples with open arms. For me, I’m usually quite quick to decide and know if a scent works for me the minute I smell it. But often, scents develop on your skin as the day goes on, and sometimes, you may end up loving a scent you may not have thought suited you the first time. A little sample vial or spray helps me decide.
As much as I enjoy using Jo Malone scents, finding one to really fit my style has eluded me. This was borne out during the event we had, when I was asked which my favourite scents were and I couldn’t quite pinpoint which. I’ve played with their new scents, their old scents and their limited edition scents. But there’s always something missing. That certain je ne sais quoi.
Well, until now!
Recently, I was clearing out my stuff, when I decided to reorganize my little fragrance collection, so I had them within easy reach. I discovered I had a little perfume sample stash I’d forgotten about, and had a bit of fun playing around with the different perfumes, trying new scents. I then dug out my old set of Jo Malone sampler set of colognes that I bought quite a few years ago and discovered that one of them sat so well with me, I started using it almost daily!
