Blue Agava & Cacao fragrance notes

Reviews of Blue Agava & Cacao

Blue Agava and Cacao is a suprisingly warm, spicy, and sweet fragrance. Fancy opening aromatic citrus berry experience leads into hearty cocoa powder with its delicious, pleasant accord that becomes the dominant note in BAaC by Jo Malone.

Such a beautiful tropical latin picture is painted here, swirling with subtle touches lovely florals, yummy cinnamon and a hint of musk.

A scent that is best experienced than described! It's a unique scent that shows depth and character.

It smells very very good, very natural.

I only give this fragrance a neutral rating because of its poor performance. But scent wise it is top notch, very well blended.

If you want a stronger alternative, you must get your nose on Profumum Roma - Battito d'Ali (its a real powerhouse - 5h of HUGE projection/12h+ longevity) and thank me later.

This is a beautiful fragrance, with it's gentle vanilla and dry cocoa. Not too sweet, and the spice is just right.

But....longevity is not great (to be expected from a cologne, I suppose). And the pricing limits me to the very rare special occasion before I will buy.

Still, thumbs up for a work of art! :)

What a surprise - very different from the other Jo Malones to date, which have been mostly agreeable, fresh eau de cologne-type fragrances. This is a new style for the house after Jo Malone herself resigned.

Blue Agava and Cacao is instead warm, powdery, and sensual. It's smooth and creamy dry cocoa, vanilla and spice, quite attractive. The berry and citrus notes are negligible on my skin. It's powdered, slightly perfumey, and isn't the skin scent a lot of the earlier Jo Malones were, with normal projection and a delicious sillage, kind of sexy. It’s one you find yourself inhaling the sillage of, not sniffing your wrist, because it’s the sillage that has the magic in this fragrance. Average longevity on me, around 6 hours, with the ending more within my aura. But still, I found myself catching whiffs of it throughout that time.

On me, a sensual, comfortable, appealing fragrance from beginning to end; deliciously linear (I didn’t want it to go anywhere else); one other people like when I wear.

Blue Agava & Cacao by Jo Malone is another agreeable, natural-smelling cologne. Strong opening of cacao and vanilla, which dominate the fragrance through its lifespan, with some spicy elements that help balance out the abovementioned sweeter elements, keeping it from being too cloyingly sweet. After reading about the floral notes, I can detect some slightly, but they're certainly not the main story.

As this is the third Jo Malone fragrance I've sampled/worn (after Wood Sage & Sea Salt, a cologne, and Velvet Rose & Oud, a "cologne intense"), my biggest criticism is not the fragrance itself but the intensity, as it seems to project only a foot, and longevity, which is limited to fewer than six hours after becoming a skin scent post-shower, and limits my interest in purchasing any at its price points.

Still, an enjoyable component of the line which strikes me as very natural. It simply could stand to be a bit denser.

For the couple o f hours before it s gone, it is a beauty. It begins with a citrusy cacao blast and as the citrus tails off, the cacao remains for the full performance, joined by what on my wrist smells like a lighter version of the Fahrenhiet leather note. Brief but very enjoyable.
