My Scent of the Summer: Jo Malone London Wood Sage + Sea Salt Cologne

Sunday, August 9, 2015

I'd been dying to try a Jo Malone cologne for awhile, but couldn't figure out what scent to check out. After Lily Pebbles mentioned Wood Sage + Sea Salt cologne as a favorite, I ran to Nordstrom to give it a sniff and swiftly came home with it!

Wood Sage + Sea Salt has notes of sage, sea salt, ambrette seeds, red algae and grapefruit. This is not a typical sweet, tropical beachy scent. According to Fragrantica, Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne was inspired by the unique character and quality of the British beaches. I cannot get enough of this fragrance, and have gotten so many compliments from both men and women wearing it.

The only thing is that this scent does not last very long on me, which is frustrating since Jo Malone as a brand is very expensive. That said, I am halfway done with my bottle, which means it's a keeper. I'll continue to pick up the portable 30 mL bottle to be able to top it up while out and about.

Jo Malone Wood Sage + Sea Salt cologne costs $65 for 30 mL and $125 for 100 mL. You can find the brand at Nordstrom and other fine department stores as well as

  1. I love this perfume, too! I think it transitions nicely as a fall perfume, as well! :) I hope they keep it on permanently.
