Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit Cologne

Last month mum and I went on a shopping trip to Westfield Stratford City and a trip into Jo Malone was in order. I must admit there was some grumbling on my part as I had no need to visit... that was until I smelt the gorgeous Ginger Biscuit Cologne, part of the limited edition Sugar & Spice range. Apparently mother does know best.

Inspired by "delectable ingredients" and created for moments of "delicious pleasure" it's no wonder they have sadly sold out. Even the description has my mouth watering; Ginger Biscuit captures the scent of just-baked cookies spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and dipped in caramel. There are also some buttery toasted hazelnuts, tonka bean and vanilla.

Mum picked Bitter Orange & Chocolate for herself which was duly requested from my sister in law on smelling for her Mother's Day present. Sold out online this led to a desperate dash to my local branch where I was told that somewhere had been in earlier purchasing 20 bottles!

I'm rather picky about perfume and when I find something I like it's thrown into the shopping basket immediately although I'm sure I'll regret not buying extras when this one runs out. My sense of smell isn't particular sharp but even I've noticed that smell lasts for hours something which gets the thumbs up from me and if in doubt the handy 30ml size is perfect for popping in the handbag.

I have to say that of the many products I use and go through my bathroom and beauty draws it is always the Jo Malone scents that I pick up on.

Were you lucky enough to get your hands on one of the bottles or do they sound too sickly sweet for you?
