This Jo Malone scent came out in September 2016 under the name Basil & Neroli. After Lime Basil & Mandarin from 1999, this is the first fragrance from the collection that contains basil as the main ingredient. As always, the fragrance can be used alone or combined with others from Jo Malone. The recommended combinations are with Wood Sage & Sea Salt, Red Roses and Blackberry & Bay.
The fragrance promises the sophisticated British vibe of London in this modern, youthful and fun edition. The fresh, playful and floral unisex composition is created by perfumer Anne Flipo, who described it as "a fresh, sophisticated, sensual floral with green facets—stunning in its simplicity." It develops with green top notes of basil, which turn into a fresh floral heart of neroli, with a base of white musk and vetiver giving off earthy tones.
I liked the top notes. I felt I was strolling through an English garden. As it wore off it was not exceptional.
I bought this for a friend to try as she likes this scent when I where it. She was extremely happy!
I didn't realize until this one that the combination of Neroli + Basil basically = soap/dish detergent. I confirmed this in a couple of other scent too. It's not bad, but just too reminiscent of detergent to me. Feels very clean though.
Interesting smell I love it
