I wanna smell like you...

Now first and foremost I need to point out that I am not the King of the swingers, sorry about that. (For those of you who didn't get the jungle book reference, why??). Right, back to what this post is actually about; Fragrance.

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt cologne. This is one of my favourite scents, I am no expert on scent so bear with me but let me try and explain the smell. It is very light and fresh when you first apply it but at it's core is a very deep sensuous note that comes from the wood. I won't go as far as saying that it smells like the sea, but is pretty damn special.

There are a lot of things that I love about Jo Malone fragrances: •All the scents are all in the same bottle, which proves that the scents can sell themselves. Also the packaging is high end so makes you fell like the star that you are. •They are all unisex, who knew both sexes could wear the same scent (insert eye roll). I have always worn a scent based in the smell and not whether it's for men or not. •They can be layered with other scents in their range, the staff in stores advise what works well, or you can just experiment yourself.

• They do the scent in all their products, so you can fill your life with your favourite scent, candles, creams and soap you name it !

I will be honest it is not the cheapest of scents at £86 for 100ml, but it lasts all day through (I always apply my perfume after a shower so that it can sink into damp skin making it last much longer). I am not one of these people that treat perfume as a luxury, to me they are a day to day essential and for that reason I do go through rather a lot, but I don't have any other vices so sue me !! The right scent can really improve your day, so maybe its time to try something new.

What's your favourite scent, how much do you go through, or do you hate perfume, let me know in the comments.

Smell you later...
