Jo Malone's English Pear & Freesia is a beautiful fragrance. Introduced this summer, it was an instant hit. English Pear & Freesia is said to marry poetry and perfume because it was inspired by the ode To Autumn by John Keats. It's a fruity floral and as pretty as it gets.
Upon first spray, there's a burst of King William Pear in its top notes. White freesia (always one of the most fragrant flowers in a bouquet) is among the scent’s heart notes. Amazingly, its dry-down includes patchouli, white amber, and musk. I don't smell the patchouli, which I normally despise. I do smell the musk.
I purchased the cologne the minute it became available, but I wanted body crème too. My friends who purchased the cologne all wanted the body crème. It wasn't available at first. Now it is! The body crème ($75), shower gel ($50), and a home candle ($65) are now available at Jo Malone's Web site and in department stores (Loyd called me the second they arrived at Saks).
Now you can surround yourself with this lovely, easy-to-wear scent. I can't wait to tell my friends who purchased the cologne!
If you order online from Jo Malone, the current special is a free, deluxe sample of Pomegranate Noir Body Crème, along with free shipping and two fragrance samples of your choice. Use code GOLDEN at checkout.
