Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt: Fragrance Description

Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt scant begins with a revitalizing burst of grapefruit and ambrette, an unexpectedly unique pairing of top notes. This combination creates an overall impression of citrusy freshness blended with the earthy muskiness of ambrette seeds. As time unfolds, the sea salt and sage notes make their entrance, contributing a clean and refined essence that's unlikely to cause offense. This scent is perfectly suited for various occasions – be it a professional setting, a dinner outing, meeting family, or any event where you desire your fragrance to be subtle rather than dominant.

Imagine taking a stroll along the coastline, where the salty sea breeze kisses your skin and the earthy scent of wild sage surrounds you. That's the essence of this perfume. It starts with a warm and inviting touch of ambrette seeds, which brings a natural and cozy vibe to the fragrance. As the scent settles, the sea salt note emerges, evoking the freshness of the ocean air, invigorating and cool. The aromatic sage adds an earthy depth, reminiscent of a lush coastal landscape.
Combined, these notes create a harmonious blend that captures the tranquility of the sea, the warmth of the sun, and the grounded feeling of being close to nature. It's like a refreshing escape to a coastal retreat, where the soothing ambrette seeds, the revitalizing sea salt, and the comforting sage all come together to transport you to a serene and invigorating paradise.

The fragrance originated from a trip to Cornwall taken by Jo Malone Creative Studio Fragrance Director, Celine Roux. Her aim was to capture the distinct essence of the English seaside – its ever-changing nature, the fleeting moments of our coastlines, the capricious weather, the rugged cliffs, and the interplay of wind and fleeting sun. Celine Roux and Christine Nagel, the cologne's perfumer, embarked on a journey to Camber Sands in Sussex to truly grasp the essence of the English coast.

Escape the everyday along the windswept shore. Waves breaking white, the air fresh with sea salt and spray. Alive with the mineral scent of the rugged cliffs. Mingling with the woody earthiness of sage. Lively, spirited and totally joyful.


Perfume story

As summer neared its end, the seaside quieted down. The sun, which used to shine so brightly, was now a bit gentler. The sand felt cool underfoot, like a whispered secret of the warmer days gone by. Salt from the sea clung to hair, like tiny crystals.
A person stood by the water, looking out at the horizon where the blue sea met the sky's orange hues. Each wave seemed to sigh as it reached the shore, as if even the sea felt the change coming. The air smelled a little salty, carrying memories of the sea.
The breeze, once warm and comforting, now brought a hint of the upcoming fall. Mixed feelings filled the heart – a bit of sadness for summer leaving, but also a readiness for what's next. The sun dipped lower, painting the sea with a golden glow, and as it did, the person held onto the beach's salty scent and the laughter of days passed.
