This is the second of 2 free samples I’m reviewing – the Lime Basil and Mandarin frangramce from Jo Malone.

The mandarin is very present in this fragrance and teamed with the unusual lime basil, makes for a very pleasant scent. However for me, it didn’t hit the high notes of the mimosa & cardamom or the peony & blush suede. I’m not such a fan of citrus fragrances and as much as I liked the mandarin notes, it’s not enough for me to venture into purchasing a large bottle of this cologne.

However, when I mixed this with the mimosa & cardamom, I did like the combination. Famous for its fragrance combination, Jo Malone lime basil & mandarin is definitely worth a try on it’s own, but I would suggest experimenting by mixing this with your favourite perfume, creating something unique for you. It adds a herby, citrus scent which may help to balance out spicy or floral fragrances.

Nice cologne on it’s own, but better combined with other fragrances.
