I'd just decided to bite the bullet and treat myself with my birthday money when I opened day 11 of my homemade advent calendar from Nick (which so far had unsuspectingly contained things like chocolate and herbal tea) to find one of my favourite Jo Malone scents - White Jasmine and Mint. If that wasn't enough, on day 22 I was ecstatic to find English Pear and Freesia, my other favourite scent.
I know there's supposedly some sort of science to how you mix Jo Malone perfumes and this mixture probably doesn't fit that science at all, but I love the smell of these two mixed. They smell amazing on their own too obviously, but together it's like the English Pear and Freesia adds a freshness, while the White Jasmine and Mint stops it smelling too sweet. Dreamy. (And that's about as technical as I get when it comes to describing perfume).
These are definitely my special occasion perfumes so I'm sure they'll last ages, but seeing as I still need something to spend my birthday money on (should spend it on something sensible like a kitchen cabinet, definitely won't) I might treat myself to a body butter or a candle because obsessed.
Are you a fan of Jo Malone? What's your favourite scent?
