Review: Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamon Cologne

I recently attended the launch event for the Jo Malone ”Mimosa & Cardamom” cologne and to my surprise I’ve learned so much compared to any other fragrance launches I’ve ever been to. Did you know that you can combine two or three fragrances together. If you feel like a fragrance isn’t sweet or fresh enough for you, you just add another fragrance to compliment each other… How genius! How have I never thought of this before?! This fragrance in particular is recommended to combine with the Jo Malone ”English Pear & Freesia” fragrance to add warmth to it.


The main accords that have been used in this fragrance are Mimosa and Cardamom.

The Mimosa flower has been used in this fragrance to give it a more elegant and feminine touch. The winter blooming flower isn’t used in many fragrances because its difficult to work with.

The Cardamon accord adds vibrancy to the top note. It’s a cool yet warm accord at the same time.

Top Note      |  Cardamom
Heart Note  |  Mimosa
Base Note    |  Tonka Bean

The fragrance contains only three accords. The notes are very straight forward just like the scent is, soft, creamy, spicy with a touch of sweetness. If there wasn’t any sweetness in the fragrance it would most probably be too sharp for me. Personally, I love floral and soft fragrances so I wouldn’t combine this fragrance with any other – it’s perfect just as it is. The longevity on me was about 8 hours which is very impressive however, this may vary on others. Just like many Jo Malone fragrances, the Mimosa & Cardamom cologne is unisex. Although I feel like it leans more towards a feminine scent, but you can always mix fragrances!

*Price: $65    /  300 AED for 30ml
