Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Cologne

I must admit before getting a sample of the latest Cologne English Pear & Freesia I had heard a lot of good things about Jo Malone products but had never actually smelt anything in the collection. When I was on Honeymoon in San Francisco I visited the newly opened Westfield Centre but was unable to get near the counter it was so busy!. This cologne had a lot to live up to so I was pleased to find I was not disappointed.

Pear and Freesia is described as the essence of Autumn,capturing the scent of just-ripe pears gathered from an English orchard.

Key notes in this scent are -

King William Pear: A classic, crisp pear variety with a fruity fresh first impression that mellows as the addition of quince in the heart of the scent adds warmth and depth.

White Freesia: Loved for its exquisitely fragrant flowers, the scent of freesia is freshly green with a surprisingly soft depth.

Patchouli: An intensely woody, autumnal base note with a sweet balsamic scent and spicy, earthy undertones.

English Pear & Freesia is everything I imagined and more. I fell in love with it the moment I sprayed it on. The scent is delicate, fresh, elegant and classy. This is exactly what I expected from Jo Malone. I cannot wait to try some other colognes now and will be heading to Selfridges as soon as possible.

English Pear and Freesia pictured is £68 for 100ml or £34 for 30ml and is available from and Jo Malone counters.

Do you own any Jo Malone products?
What do you like from the collection?


  1. I'd love to get my hands on a few Jo Malone goodies (this perfume sounds beautiful) but they're waaay out of my price range :) Honestly I couldnt even afford to treat myself to one of the candles nevermind anything else ♥

  2. I'd love to have a smell of this, it sounds lovely! xoxo

  3. Love the sound of this! Jo Malone stuff is gorgeous, but sooo pricey

  4. Ahhh sounds lovely. I must try some Jo Malone products!


  5. OOOOohh sounds divine! I would love some but rather pricey, perhaps I need to start being extra nice to Santa LOL

  6. I agree that this is a lovely scent from Jo Malone. I haven't found too many fragrances from this brand that I love, but the candles are great and the packaging makes JM products really good presents.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
