Anyone who knows me knows I love a bit of Jo Malone and my new favourite is the company’s original fragrance – Nutmeg & Ginger.
Nutmeg & ginger was launched in 1990 and was Jo Malone’s first fragrance. The scent was originally created and hand blended as a gift for Jo’s clients after their facial. Twenty five years on and it is still one of the company’s top scents.
The fragrance has the top note of ginger, the heart note is nutmeg and the base not is sandalwood which all combine to make a perfect scent from the spicy family. For me it is a real autumn / winter warm fragrance and is perfect for sweaters and party dresses. For the summer I tend to change to a lighter fragrance.
I always get comments when I wear Nutmeg & Ginger which is really nice particularly as I love the fragrance so much.
The cologne comes in two sizes, 30ml for £40 and £82 for 100ml. the 30ml size is perfect for your handbag and travelling while the 100ml is better value for keeping and using in the house. A word of advice if you are travelling through Heathrow check the shops in your terminal as there are several Jo Malone outlets and it saves you about 20% on the cost – worth remembering.
I always find the fragrance lasts well but if you are keen to maintain your scent Jo Malone is big on layering your fragrance and you can also purchase Nutmeg & Ginger in a Bath Oil and Body Crème to keep your scent lasting longer.
As I write this its snowing outside and is the perfect winter day for a Nutmeg & Ginger day!
