Jo Malone London | Wild Blueberry Body Cream



My flight last night was delayed. Midnight I was still at Amsterdam Airport. It didn’t land until half 1 in the morning. So I’ve had to rush to the airport this morning, to catch my flight to Rome. Today’s Jo Malone Advent Calendar is Wild Blueberry body cream. I ended up using the Jo Malone Wild Blueberry body cream, as a hand cream. It smells nice, but am not sure I could justify spending £54 (full size) on body cream. The small Advent Calendar size, is handy for traveling. I’ll have to try it out more, when I have more time.

Jo Malone London | Earl Grey And Cucumber Cologne


Hi everyone, am about to head to the airport. So I’ll quickly show number 7 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar. Today is Earl Grey and Cucumber Cologne. I’ve just sprayed it before heading to the airport. I actually like this one, it smells kind of fruity. I’ll probably ruin it, as when I walk through Duty Free at the airport I spray all the perfumes haha.

Jo Malone London | Frosted Cherry And Clove Candle




I have been put off visiting places, where English isn’t the first language. After visiting Denmark yesterday it changed my view, on visiting other countries. It was the first time traveling on my own, to a country where English isn’t the first language. I was feeling nervous about traveling, to a country non-English speaking country on my own. I kept thinking do I point at things, if I need anything ? Or what do I do ? I got the tram from the Copenhagen airport into the city. I saw the word “fart” I laughed and took a photo with my phone. The guy opposite said “that’s a good photo”. I said oh I was taking a photo of the word fart, as it means different in English. I was shocked how clear his English was. I replied “where are you from ?”. He replied “Denmark and where are you from ?” I replied “Scotland”. He said “oh wow you don’t sound Scottish”. I just laughed, as I didn’t think he was Danish. I would say about 80% of Danish, speak in English. The only time I was spoken to in Danish, was in Sephora. The worker started speaking and I knew it wasn’t English. I was about to say “sorry I don’t speak Danish”. I said the word “sorry” and she soon jumped and quickly said “hi is there anything you’d like help with ?. I was impressed how quickly, she managed to change language. It was nice seeing, Nyhavn and The Little Mermaid Statue. Danish people are the friendliest people, I have came across and willing to speak English. I felt like I was in my home country (Scotland), with everyone speaking English. The only down side with Denmark, it’s the home of LEGO and there was no LEGO products with “Copenhagen” on it. The London LEGO Store had t shirts and other things with “London Leicester Square”.

So number 6 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar, is Frosted Cherry and Clove candle. My first Jo Malone candle was the Pine And Eucalyptus. They are expensive, so I put off buying it at first. As they are expensive, I would only buy myself another for a special occasion. As I treated myself to the Advent Calendar, I’ll be getting to try a few over December. The second I pulled out the drawer of number, I knew it was a candle. I could smell the cherry. I lit it up for a photo, but you can smell the candle with or without lightening it. It has that winter smell, which makes it even more Christmas - y.

Jo Malone London | Tuberose Angelica Cologne


Am currently getting ready to head to the Airport, so am going to share with you number 5 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar. Today (number 5), is Tuberose Angelica Cologne. The Tuberose Angelica, is another intense cologne. It smells totally different, to anything I’d normally wear. I keep smelling the bottle, am not sure if I like it or not. I feel like it’s a “mum” scent. It smells like perfumes my mum and auntie wear.

Jo Malone London | English Pear And Freesia Cologne



Am guilty to judge things by how catchy they sound or if it looks nice. Number 4 of the Jo Malone Advent Calendar is English Pear and Freesia. Reading the words “English Pear”, it wouldn’t be something I would go to pick up in a shop. It’s not how I imagined the smell. It smells fresh and not too powering. It’s really light scented, compared to some of the Jo Malone scents I’ve tried. It could quite possible be one of my favourite Jo Malone scents. It’s just a shame the wording doesn’t sound catchy for me to remember it.

Jo Malone London | Basil And Neroli Body And Hand Wash Gel



I like to stick to my favourite scents (my favourite Jo Malone London scent, is Lime Basil and Manderin), so the Jo Malone Advent Calendar is a fun way to get me out of sticking to the same scent. The first and second of December were both Cologne’s, so it was a nice change to open and find the Basil and Neroli body and hand wash gel. I would never have went for this one going by the word “Neroli”. It doesn’t sound catchy to me, but I was surprised how nice it smells. I was actually sniffing the bottle, before I typed this haha. The Basil and Neroli body and hand wash gel, came in a 15ml. It’s within the 70ml hand luggage size, to take on planes. So it will be handy to carry in my back pack, when I head away.

Jo Malone London | OUD And Bergamot Cologne


I’ve been spending my Sunday, planning trips I have coming up. My first trip this month, I head to the home of LEGO, Denmark (Copenhagen). I like to plan in advance what the transport is like from the airport to the City. I’ve been Googling how to get from Copenhagen Airport to the City and it’s showing, train, Metro or bus are the best options. However I’ve read you need to watch you don’t get the wrong train or you’ll land in Sweden. I didn’t think that was true, but Malmรถ in Sweden is only just over half an hour on the train from Copenhagen. Imagine telling people “I went to Copenhagen and accidentally landed in Sweden” haha. I plan to visit Nyhavn harbour, the famous colourful street. The Little Mermaid statue and the LEGO store. Denmark is the home of LEGO, so I’ll have to buy a LEGO souvenir.

It’s the second of December, so another advent calendar opening. It’s all about the Cologne’s yesterday was the “Orange Bitters”. Today I got the OUD and Bergamot Cologne. I’ve had the OUD and Bergamot Cologne before. It reminds me of the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon. They both have that intense scent. Elizabeth and James Bourbon has Oakwood and the Jo Malone Oud and Bergamot has OUD wood, so they both have that “wood”. It’s actually one of my favourite smell from Jo Malone. When am at Edinburgh Airport and pass Duty Free, I always spray a few sprays of this or the Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne. The advent calendar, is a small 9ml size.
