Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Collection; Body & Handwash Review

Let me make a guilty Beauty Blogger confession.

I don’t own anything from Jo Malone. I don’t actually know much about Jo Malone.  I walk past their counters now and then, all the uniform bottles neatly aligned side by side but am too scared to go over and have a sniff.  I feel like it’s the kind of counter I’d go to if I was choosing a wedding perfume, or one of those, ‘once in a lifetime’ scents.  It has that sort of feel to me.

Then I was sent this extremely beautifully packaged Jo Malone Body & Handwash from their newest scent collection, Wild Bluebell:

Oh, that packaging. It’s simple but so elegant. It’s heavy weight too – I start thinking of what I’ll store in it once the bodywash is finished.

I never thought about buying a post bodywash to use before but it sort of makes sense; I can’t use cheap body washes anyway, my skin is so sensitive (I am itching at a lot of things at the moment) and it means I get a hint of scent without it being overpowering (I seriously hate overly strong perfume wearing).

What is Wild Bluebell?

You know I’m not good at describing fragrances but my favourite is floral-musky ones (I love Stella and I am utterly obsessed with Molton Brown’s Lijiang – like OBSESSED).

Wild Bluebell is floral and it has the musk – yes I love this. I love it. It’s girly and pretty and never cheap or tacky.

The wash itself is fine for hands or as a shower gel. I personally have used this as a shower gel as I have some cheap Carex handwash anyway! It’s lovely and it does smell great in the shower. It’s quite low foaming – I much prefer this although a lot of people don’t….the less foam I find, the less drying it is afterwards.

How well does the scent linger?…it does linger actually, if I hold my skin up to my nose it’s there but I don’t know how apparent it is to people near me!

This is lovely I will definitely explore the Jo Malone counter at some point in the future – Lime Basil sounds good as does White Jasmine and Mint.  If you like Jo Malone do leave a comment and let me know what your favourite scent is.

    Jo Malone – oh, where do I start? The Blue Agave & Cacao is lovely, as is Pomegranate Noir (although my SIL loves that one, so it feels a bit odd to me to wear it myself now). Orange Blossom is another nice one that you might like if you like the Bluebell. The Body Cremes are v good too.

    I love Bluebell! I use it with Red Roses – you can mix scents to create your own ‘unique’ one which is pretty good :)
