Personally, I don't think the jo malone colognes are worth the money. They last only a few hours on the skin. I also don't think the perfumes smell that good.

I'd rather spend the money on a chanel or hermes perfume.

Have you smelt them all? Do you like them all?

I was given this as a gift, and it is lovely - although I didn't like all the fragrances so one of them was a bit of a waste. It is great for travelling as you can take 1 or 2 with you more easily than a full size bottle. My favourite of hers is the cologne intense in Oud andBergamot, which is fabulous.. and I find longer lasting than the normal range of colognes.

I was disappointed with mine. It smelt lovely but it had disappeared by lunchtime. Also the price shock!!

have you heard of Jo Malone's new stuff - Jo loves? they do a set of ten samples and when you decide which one you like, they send you a 30 or 100ml bottle of the one you like the most. No issues of wastage if you dont like any of them.

I am a huge Jo Malone fan but her Jo Malone brand was sold to a private equity firm and its lost its way a bit. Jo Loves is Jo Malone doing her own thing again.

Jo Loves is soooo much better then the Jo Malone range. I used to be a diehard fan but the quality is just not the same since the company got sold off. I still adore Blackberry & Bay, mind you, but the last two I've bought (Earl Grey & Cucumber and Sea salt & Sage) barely last ten minutes and I'm not convinced I actually like the smell. I also bought one of the limited edition ones last year (Gingerbread Biscuit) and it honestly smelled like Pledge furniture polish.

The Jo Loves range is divine, though. I've had a couple of samples and they are beautiful, and pretty long-lasting.
