Reviews of Basil & Neroli

Among the many anonymous scents in the JM range, this is a winner. Citrus and herbs, an excellent feminine (largely) summer scent.

I smelled a lot of Jo Malone scents at one of their boutiques in Toronto, and this one captivated me right from the beginning like no other from their line. It smells very similar to Bond No. 9's Eau de New York but lacks some of the white florals like jasmine in the drydown, and is a bit darker than the Bond, and also more masculine in my opinion. Surprisingly, it has really amazing longevity for a Jo Malone cologne, projecting really well for over 4 hours and then remaining as a skin scent on me for many, many hours (in fact over 12 hours with 2 sprays for me). As for the scent itself, it is an absolutely amazing mix of neroli flowers (the blossom of an orange tree) and basil, making it smell very green and citric at the same time. It smells like you're walking in a lush dewy meadow surrounded by orange trees. This is an absolute masterpiece by Jo Malone and one of my favourite fragrances ever.

Jo Malone Basil & Neroli smells like a bathroom soap dish in your Grandmother's house. It's got a lot of musk in it that makes the basil note sweeter than a man should ever want to wear. The neroli provides the soapy tone. I get no vetiver at all. Beyond that, it's as tame as Grandma's house cat. A pleasurable scent on Grandma, but a thumbs down on me.

This is one of those big green colognes you get when you mix neroli and vetiver, clearly based on the Mugler Cologne/Creed Original Vetiver recipe. Basil & Neroli adds a lot of white soapy musk to the mix, so the end result is a lot like Irish Spring soap. It's fairly linear, though it's brighter at first and becomes darker as the vetiver moves forward in the mix as the day progresses.

This is nice, the kind of scent that manages to be a crowd pleaser without dumbing itself down. Nothing original here, but I've enjoyed wearing it.

A nice orange blossom fragrance. I do not get much basil here. I am not a big fan of Neroli so this is going to be a pass but this one is one of the better releases this year.
