‘Poppy & Barley’
I’m going to pop into Jo Malone London this weekend, to sample all the fragrances from this collection, but for now, I’m just going to chat about the fragrance from the collection which my friends at Jo Malone kindly sent to me. Poppy & Barley is a fresh and glorious blend of red poppies, blackcurrant, barley, brand and white musk. Whilst I never think of poppies having a scent, this fragrance captures almost how I feel like they should smell rather than the way I remember them smelling in the garden as a child; Like a bright, pretty floral, wild and playful. The playfulness of the fragrance is added to with the juicy, delicious blackcurrants. The Barley and the bran add a woody feel to the fragrance and the white musk add a smooth, sensuality to the perfume. Together, Poppy & Barley is bright, playful, fresh and spring like which a real air of English whimsical eccentricity. It’s almost impossible to dislike this fragrance because it’s just so impossibly delightful, fresh and lovely! I can’t wait to pop into the store to sample the rest of the collection, because Poppy & Barley is gorgeous and I have a feeling I’m going to be equally smitten with Green Wheat & Meadowsweet, because you know I love a dry, woodsy, earthy fragrance!
Jo Malone London ‘English Fields’ Collection is limited edition and it usually sells out really fast, so if you are tempted please do nip into store soon and try them out because they won’t be around for long. Each bottle is priced at £47 for a 30ml cologne. Also available from John Lewis.
