Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay

7 Mar

A berry-scented flower in a used t-shirt?

Blackberry & Bay opens with very fresh bittersweet and sour dark berries. They are not true to life blackberries, but they don’t exactly smell artificial either. They smell like a fruity flower that has a berryish aroma.

Projection and longevity are both good. Longevity is excellent for Jo Malone, right up there with Pomegranite Noir.

Blackberry & Bay is warm, bitter, green and fruity. There is a tiny bit of soapiness under the berries.

As it develops on my skin, the fresh soap element amplifies and the berries seem to ripen, though they quickly begin to lose any distinctive “berry” character. The resulting aroma reminds me of smelling the armpits of a t-shirt to determine whether it can hold out for one more wearing before laundering.

B&B doesn’t actually smell like body odor, but it does smell a little like fabric softener mixed with an odd earthy-sweet “ripeness”. This continues through the dry down.

The un-naturally fresh, meets the naturally ripe.
I wonder how this would layer with Febreeze…
