A scent for Christmas

On Monday we shared with you one of our favourite Christmas’ scents: spicy, buttery, dip in white chocolate cookies fresh from the oven (recipe here!). Today, following with the Christmas aromas theme, we wanted to introduce you to a wonderful cologne that could be a great present for Christmas. Jo Malone is one of our favourite brands: we love its philosophy (the scents are made to be mixed with each other) and the fragances are always unconventional. Besides, it’s very easy to find the one for you: they have different categories (citrus, floral, spicy…) so that you can quickly and easily gravitate to the bouquet that you prefer.

One of them evokes the island of Panarea and the other one is inspired by the land of Calabria. These scents are fresh and fruity with floral accents and have surprising combinations of Italian aromas. Just my cup of tea!
