Jo Malone ‘Forest Moss’ Cologne
Hello friends! Today I thought I would do a Jo Malone ‘Forest Moss’ Cologne Review. This is one of the newest fragrances from the iconic perfume house AND it’s a limited edition fragrance, so if you are interested, please remember that this fragrance (and the others from the Wild Swimming collection) will likely sell out VERY soon! Want to know more? Let’s go!!
The Jo Malone Wild Swimming collection is the limited edition 2022 Brit Collection from Jo Malone London. It is inspired by Wild Swimming and features four brand new fragrances and one classic re-release fragrance. All in 30ml limited edition bottles. The fragrances are aquatic, etherial and a filled with a little salt magic! Personally, I LOVE Crystal Campion, but Forest Moss is also really special, especially for the men!
‘Wild swimming has a truly universal appeal, and, particularly in our current times, offers just about everyone an accessible experience of freedom in nature. That’s something we were all inspired by and tried to celebrate in this collection.’
-Céline Roux, Global Head of Fragrance
What does Jo Malone ‘Forest Moss’ Cologne Smell like?
Juniper. Geranium. Moss
‘A ray of sunlight through the towering trees of the forest, leading the way to a secluded river. The green freshness of juniper entwined with the natural scents of earthy geranium and aromatic moss.’
Jo Malone ‘Forest Moss’ Cologne Review
Ah! Jo Malone Forest Moss cologne!! What a treat!! I don’t know if it’s just me, but this fragrance reminds me of the woods which lead out to the sea at Wells-Next-The-Sea beach. It’s truly one of the most beautiful beaches you can imagine and this fragrance reminds me of the sand-covered woodland and tall pine trees, which lead up a hill and open onto a vast beach filled with adorable beach huts. It’s pretty magical!
All Jo Malone London fragrances are unisex, but some feel much more feminine than masculine, and this is one of the rare fragrances which falls firmly into the latter category. Whilst women can wear this fragrance; the moss, vetiver and juniper make it feel a lot more masculine, at least to my nose. Jo Malone Forest Moss cologne is filled with notes of woodsy aquatic-ness and it’s earthy, ruggard, salty and sandy. It’s effortless, unpretentious and reminds me of a mix between Wood Sage & Seasalt and 154.
If you were interested in fragrance combining this one, I think a splash of Blackberry & Bay would be stunning, especially if you want to make it a little more feminine. Wood Sage & Seasalt would give it a little more coast depth and Myrrh & Tonka would make it a little more rich, delicious and add to it’s longevity.
In short… Jo Malone Forest Moss cologne is a wonderful new mens fragrance from the brand. If you like Wood Sage & Sea Salt but want something with a little more punch, then this is it!

The crystal waters of a hidden cove, lined with smooth pebbles and trimmed with dainty campion flowers. The freshness of rose ripples with a note of dewy violets and a hint of juicy blackcurrant. Read more here!
A ray of sunlight through the towering trees of the forest, leading the way to a secluded river. The green freshness of juniper entwined with the natural scents of earthy geranium and aromatic moss.
An exhilarating swim at high tide. Sensual notes of amber and patchouli recall the opaque depths of the sea, contrasting with the impression of salty sea water and the energetic freshness of cardamom.
Diving into the bright blue of the open-air pool for a morning swim, a citrus freshness in the air and city sounds in the distance. A refreshing burst of mandarin floats alongside an energising note of spearmint, gently warmed with cedarwood.
Wood Sage & Sea Salt
A herbaceous blend of ambrette seeds, drift wood, sea salt and sage. A cult favourite from the brand.
