The new Jo Malone scent comes out in September 2016 under the name Basil & Neroli. After Lime Basil & Mandarin from 1999, this is the first fragrance from the collection that contains basil as the main ingredient. As always, the fragrance can be used alone or combined with others from Jo Malone. The recommended combinations are with Wood Sage & Sea Salt, Red Roses and Blackberry & Bay.
The fragrance promises the sophisticated British vibe of London in this modern, youthful and fun edition. The fresh, playful and floral unisex composition is created by perfumer Anne Flipo, who described it as “a fresh, sophisticated, sensual floral with green facets—stunning in its simplicity.” It develops with green top notes of basil, which turn into a fresh floral heart of neroli, with a base of white musk and vetiver giving off earthy tones.
