Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana Cologne *

Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana

Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana cologne has launched and if you’re in the mood for a happy new floral then look no further.

I’ve been lucky enough to be sent a bottle and as soon as I sprayed it I was hooked.  I loved it immediately but once the scent had dried down a little, I was besotted.  It smells so so good.

Hedgerows hum with bees and bugs.  The sunny yellow and soft peachy shades of untamed honeysuckle climb through the English countryside.  Brightening the day and scenting the night.  A burst of happiness, bottled in Honeysuckle & Davana.

The Scent

The wildness of honeysuckle, winding through the English countryside. Climbing.  Twisting.  Ever more alluring after dark.                                              Fresh with rose and the aromatic, fruity twist of davana.  Woody with moss.  Warmed by sunshine.  Fluorescent.  Sunny.  Happy.

Master Perfumer Anne Flipo was given the brief to capture exactly how honeysuckle smells, which they have done perfectly.  They used honeysuckle from the Cotswolds and picked it at midnight when the fragrance was at its strongest.

 What I really love though is how they’ve not gone down the sweet and over floral scent that you’d maybe be expecting.  Instead, they’ve added davana, moss and patchouli to give this depth and a very modern twist.  The davana helps to create a woody and citrusy balance to the floral notes of the honeysuckle.

Fragrance Combining

Jo Malone scents always work well alone or when paired with other scents and Honeysuckle & Davana is no different.

Pairing it with GRAPEFRUIT adds more citrus to the scent as well as a bitterness that works perfectly.

When combined with OUD & BERGAMOT, the freshness and of the honeysuckle is enhanced and concentrated.

Thoughts

Once again, they’ve pulled it out of the bag.  Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana cologne is simply beautiful and is the ideal scent for late summer and autumn.  You get the floral tones, which are gorgeous, but combining the honeysuckle with the davana and moss was a masterstroke.  It dries down into a very pretty scent that isn’t as strong as with some Jo Malone colognes, but is still very long-wearing.
