    Genre: Fruity Floral

    This is basically the same kind of Del Monte canned peaches note that you can get for $245 US from By Killian's Flower of Immortality, offered here for a mere $60 US retail. Or you can just go out and spend $1.99 on the canned peaches. (Actually, the Jo Malone smells better than the expensive ultra-niche stuff – though maybe not better than the Del Monte.)

    Granted, it’s a pleasant smell, but as a fragrance it’s also bare and unfinished. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: you want to know what peach can do in a full-fledged perfume? Go smell Mitsouko or Chinatown, and leave this stuff for the canned foods aisle.

    Pretty Good Peach

    I received one of Neiman Marcus' scent catalogs and out of sheer boredom opened the little ( and I find *stingy* ) towelette thingies they insert into those catalogs. One of the first was Nectarine Blossom and Honey .
    It's beautiful ! Remember I tried it out of sheer boredom and not expecting anything much at all ( not a fan of Jo Malone's watery liquids .... )
    The peachy nectarine note is sublimey delicious and then in comes a gorgeous * clean* honey note. This scent is nearly photo realistic when it comes to the first whiff of stone fruit. The lasting power is pretty good. The swipes of that scented towelette thingie lasted on my skin for several hours and the towelette smelt wonderful for days.
    I would buy this if you love peach /nectarine notes. It is one of the best uncomplicated happy stone fruit scents out there.
    Yes it reminds me a little of the Fuzzy Peach by The Body Shop but as that is not made any longer.... this is it. Lovely.

    I cannot stand Jo Malone bottles- they are very boring . Either too big or too little ( 30 mls.... ) All the same , utilitarian...scent presentation should be * alittle * glamorous * don't you think , Estee Lauder Group ???!
    I once read somewhere how Jo Malone was the Martha Stewart of the fragrance world - - it stuck in my head because it rings fairly true to me .

    Pros: Beautiful Scent
    Cons: Fugly boring bottle"

    It takes the confident hand of an assured and practiced artist to know when something has just enough - There's a level of ornamentation required for artistry, but nothing extraneous, while there are also no awkward empty spaces or minimalist silliness. With the possible exception of some of Giocabetti's work for L'Artisan, I don't think any house is better at pulling this off than Jo Malone. Of course, in an art form where complex chypres and baroque aldehydic florals are widely considered the ideal, many serious collectors are quick to write off simple but perfectly realized sketches like Nectarine Blossom & Honey, but I enjoy them.

    So what does it smell like? Well, the "nectarine" is really that common peach note made famous by Calyx, but it's surrounded by leafy greens and is then quickly swallowed up in a nice white flowers accord. The "honey" smell isn't the rich gourmand honey of Lutens or Back To Black, but more the subtle way that some florals (like acacia) imply a honey smell. There's also a subtle but perfectly blended cassis note that mixes with the leaves and the rose from the white flower mix to create that dewy limpid green pool illusion made famous by L'Ombre Dans L'Eau. Later, as the flowers settle down, some vetiver comes in, mixing with the lingering cassis to give a dark but wet backbone (like a lily pond at night in the middle of a dark forest) to everything. All in all, it's perfumey and flowery, but with subtle darkness underneath. Honestly, the longevity is fairly poor - it tells its story over the course of a few hours - but I still find it compelling.

    Simple and pure citrus blossom with a nice honey component. A pleasant combination but a bit basic, albeit well made. Probably best for layering. Little silage and projection and only lasting for an hour on my skin.

    At first blush, this smells just like peach.
    On my skin, it goes from acrid orange to rank sweat in a heartbeat. No nuances, just gave me the urge to scrub.
    My friend adored it — for about 3 days, and then experienced buyer's remorse at having spent so much on a pricey fragrance that really should be layered with another. Brilliant marketing on Jo Malone's part, but I'd rather spend my money on a well-crafted ensemble.

    Nectarine immediately but HEAVY, yummy honey within 30 minutes. Like all Jo Malones I've tried, you get what you read in the fragrance's title and not more, so you would be disappointed to expect complexity or depth. (That's what Chanels are for!!) A Jo Malone mood is light-hearted, pure, and clean. Organic, even. I think JM fragrances can only be fairly reviewed by a panel that accepts them for what they are intended: something set apart from the opulent, rich, glamorous, and puzzling. They don't require chapters of stuffy note descriptions or tricky evolving faceted ingredients, They are in-your-face little expressions of nature, and they are beautiful.
