Jo Malone Sugar & Spice Collection: Elderflower & Gooseberry

14 Mar

Elderflower and Gooseberry is a pastel purple and green My Little Pony doll, with a very long tail… The sweetness goes on and on…

E&G is a powdery sweet and slightly tart, soft fruity floral. I think this one is very pleasant, but the elements are not true to life, though that does not bother me in this fragrance. Perhaps it would have been slightly more interesting if the notes were more realistic, but I’m working with what I’ve got. Even with the CGI Fruits and Florals, it still doesn’t smell anything like lipstick to me like some other reviewers noted, especially not after smelling Prada Candy, which to my nose has an outstanding waxy-lipstick note in the opening.

When I was a little girl, my mother gave me perfumed powder to use, instead of an alcohol-based fragrance. It smelled mostly like powder, but with the added soft sweet dimension of something vaguely fruity and flowery. I think the longevity with E&G is pretty good for Jo Malone, and it projects very well for the first few hours.

I could see this being a great brunch fragrance. When you want to wear something soft light and fresh, but don’t want it to interfere with your mimosa, poached eggs, spring salad, and goat cheese spinach croissant, E&G is a pretty safe bet.
