Jo Malone ushers in Autumn with English Pear & Freesia

Inspired by John Keats's ode "To Autumn" - English Pear & Freesia is a fragrance that makes you think of the early days of fall.  It actually came out last month but since the weather hasn't been feeling at all fall-like here, I didn't want to jinx it and rush summer out by talking about fall!

The fragrance contains notes of King William pear, quince, green rhubarb, white freesia, wild rose, patchouli, white amber and musk and is meant to capture the scent of just-ripe pears gathered in an English orchard. And of course, as with all Jo Malone fragrances, it is meant to be layered and/or combined with other scents.  Some suggestions that Jo Malone offers is to combine it with Orange Blossom for a delicate, fruity-floral scent, Vetyver to add spiciness or Black Vetyver Cafe to give masculine depth.

If you are a citrus nut like me you'll combine it with Grapefruit (as I do everything) to smell like a delicious fruit salad!

English Pear & Freesia is available in a 30ml Cologne - $70 or 100ml Cologne - $118 exclusively at Holt Renfrew.  In November, they will also be launching a Body Creme, Body & Hand Wash and Home Candle for this scent.
