Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom Cologne – Review

This is an update of the review of the Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom cologne sample I received last year.

I took advantage of the recent Black Friday sale, and much to my surprise, a package arrived just 3 days later.

Here it is …


I can not fault the free gift ready packaging.  The free samples, which I will review in a separate post, are also a nice touch, especially as I got to choose 2 out of a selection of 4.

I’m also very pleased to say that the scent of the sample marries that of the final product.  I took a risk in purchasing the large bottle, as I felt that it was more economical than buying the smaller bottle.  Even so, at over £80, it was not a small risk.

The only down side – the external packaging.  Eek! If you’re a friend of the environment, please look away now!


Such a big box, for such a small item, and so much waste filler!  Fear not my Earth friends, this is going to be recycled in my compost heap to help grow my potatoes next year.  But gosh, it does seem a bit much.

Overall rating 4.5/5 – losing 0.5 for the external packaging.
