Plum Blossom Cologne ($55 or $110) is stunning - as is the fragrance.
The cerise splashes of plum blossom herald the promise of warmer days. Like nature’s fluttering rosettes, pinned to arching boughs. Architectural against the sunlit sky.
Plum Blossom captures the optimism of these blush-ruffle flowers. Opening with the fruitful freshness of yellow plum, its floral heart blooms on a background of creamy sandalwood and clean, white musk. It's a pure delight worn solo, but also perfect for fragrance layering.
Try adding Nectarine Blossom & Honey’s youthful sweetness of succulent fruits and warm honey to amplify Plum Blossom’s juicy, airy purity. The result will be tender and delicious.
Lord only knows how, but I found (and purchased) a pre-release bottle on eBay. I told you about Plum Blossom in March. You can see that feature at this link, which shows the pretty bottle. I described my impressions there, and I don't see much sense in repeating them. Plum Blossom Cologne is light and office-appropriate (there I go, using that term again!).
Plum Blossoms are a beloved subject in the traditional paintings of East Asia - and a fitting inspiration for the beauty of Plum Blossom Cologne. In China, plum trees bloom much earlier than they do in the United States. In East Asia, plum blossoms are seen as a symbol of winter's end and a harbinger of spring - a symbol for resilience and perseverance in the face of the adversity of harsh winter weather. They are early bloomers here too. Adding to the pink glory of early spring, plum trees are widely appreciated for their short seasonal displays. The white plum blossom design on the Plum Blossom Cologne bottle could only have been prettier if it had been pink, as it appears above.
Plum Blossom is available at Jo Malone Boutiques, jomalone.com, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and selected Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, and Nordstrom stores nationwide. It's available exclusively at Holt Renfrew in Canada.
