Stick­ing with the flower-power theme, Jo Mal­one’s lat­est launch is the Pe­ony & Blush Suede Col­lec­tion, avail­able from Brown Thomas.

In­spired by the Ce­cil Beaton era, so im­bued with For­ties high glam­our, this is what I call a lux­u­ri­ous, ladylike scent.

A fresh flo­ral with top notes of red ap­ple, a heart note of pe­ony and the sweet­ness of honey, all per­fectly bal­anced out with the un­ex­pected twist of suede in the base.

Suede? While we’re re­ally used to leather in fra­grances, suede is the softer, friend­lier sis­ter. It dries down to a musky fin­ish as it set­tles down onto the skin.

Obvs, it’s di­vine worn by it­self, but lay­er­ing scents is Jo Mal­one’s big­gie, so I sug­gest pair­ing it with other Jo Mal­one scents like English Pear & Freesia for a won­der­fully juicy, smooth touch or try Or­ange Blos­som for a full-on tut­tifrutti high.

Saf­fron works very well, giv­ing a mag­nif­i­cent mix of sweet­ness with an in­tense spice.

The col­lec­tion is com­prised of a cologne, left, from €48; body creme, €62; body and hand wash, €42; and a home can­dle, €50.
