My holiday scent, Jo Malone Star Magnolia

You often hear that a certain scent evokes some memories. The possibility that you ever found yourself saying “This scent remembers me of something!” is very likely. But did you also know that you can create these memories on purpose?

When I go on holiday I try to pick out one scent that I haven’t worn before, to take with me. In that way, the scent will forever remind me of that holiday. Pretty cool, right?

So there is Escentric 02 that reminds me of a holiday at the seaside about three years ago, Michael Kors Coral means Greece to me and for this year, I think of saving this beautiful Star Magnolia to mean the same to me.

It’s a beautiful fresh scent that lingers around in the most elegant way. It has a top of lemon, apricot, petitgrain and a hint of leather. At the heart it’s magnolia that shines together with orange blossom on a base of cashmere and sandalwoods.

All of this might sound sweet and complex but for me, it’s so simple and elegant that it makes me want to wear only white. I don’t know if I’ll be able to set it aside for a holiday though, I want to drench myself in it. Is it coincidence that Jo Malone has created a Hair Mist to go with it? And then that bottle. Oh take my money already, Jo Malone.
