Jo Malone London ‘Star Magnolia’ 

Jo Malone London Star Magnolia perfume limited edition review

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


Fragrance Combining

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.


In Review….

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!
