Jo Malone London ‘Star Magnolia’
“Delicate white blossoms bursting with Spring’s sparkling charm—Star Magnolia is in bloom. Spirited star magnolia, magnolia leaf and orange blossom with a kiss of lemon, ginger and shiso. Tantalising. Flirtatious.”
Top Notes: Lemon
Heart Notes: Star Magnolia
Base Notes: Sandalwood
All Jo Malone London fragrances can be worn alone, or combined with other fragrances in the collection to create a scent which feels a little more bespoke. Colognes can be layered up with bath & body products, or two colognes can be worn in unison, whatever you prefer! Star Magnolia combines beautifully with Basil & Neroli to add fresh green notes and enhance the floral tones.
Jo Malone London are one of my ‘Love’ brands; I have become a bit of a JML collector over the years and I get particularly excited over their limited edition fragrances. Each Spring, around Cherry Blossom season, they release a fragrance which is inspired by a type of blossom, this years offering is Star Magnolia. It comes in a very special bottle which is white and clear glass in an ombre effect and it has a laser cut style flower at the lid. It’s everything you might expect from a Springtime blossom fragrance, but with a little added Jo Malone magic!
Star Magnolia opens with a hit of refreshing crisp lemon which mingles with the feminine, floral magnolia and rich, deep sandalwood. Whilst Magnolia might not sound like a modern fragrance, somehow Jo Malone London manage to make it just that; fresh, contemporary and exciting. The lemon at the top of the fragrance is clean, simple and sparkling. There is a trace of ginger which adds a little warm spice and as well as amber which adds sweetness. The sandalwood at the base of the fragrance gives the fragrance a bohemian style vibe; warm, exotic, woody and earthy. Star Magnolia is so pretty for the warmer months and if you are buying a gift for a bride / bridesmaids, then look no further. Florals for spring might not be groundbreaking, but Magnolia with a hint of fresh citrus and Coachella-esque vibes is pretty exciting!
Jo Malone London Star Magnolia is a limited edition fragrance and it is available as a 30ml and 100ml cologne, as well as a 50ml hair mist. Priced at £46 and £92 respectively for the cologne and £38 for the hair mist. The hair mist has already sold out, so I urge you to go test this perfume in store soon, because it will sell out soon!
