Jo malone body lotions?

Are they any good?

DH bought me Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka perfume which is beautiful but in true JM style it doesn't last long enough.

I have never tried the lotions and cremes so just wondered what the staying power is like.

I was given the lime, basil and mandarin one (already had the perfume) and really like it. Definitely keeps the fragrance for longer (but I do tend to slap it all over!)

The body creams are nicer than the body lotions

I have the lime and basil perfume which lasts pretty well on me. So I bought the body lotion in Pomegranate, despite the stupid price, as I assumed it would last after a bath. It doesn't's quite nice, but really not lasting enough, for me, to justify the price tag, and I won't be getting any more!

I am now wearing a sample of the lime perfume, I'm not sure what to think of it.

Why don't the perfumes smell for long? It's a shame because I adore the perfume. I think my perfume parlour dupe of Pomegranate Noir lasts longer than the original.

I might go sample some of the creams tomorrow. Will do an extra night shift to justify it grin

The cremes are much better.

I have a bergamot and oud cream and it's lovely and seems to last well

Get the cream. They are amazing.

I buy the cremes not the lotion and staying power is fine.

I ended up with Pomegranate Noir body cream which I'm now wearing with My Myrrh and Tonka.

I also bought the Lime, basil and Mandarin perfume because if you're going to do an extra night shift to pay for it you might as well go the whole hog grin

I don't normally like floral scents but the LBM is so fresh and light and even nicer with the warmth of PN.
