Review | Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray

When your sister comes home from university bearing gifts wrapped up in a Jo Malone bag, there is no doubt that the gift inside will be a much loved one. I've been feeling a bit down recently so my sister very kindly decided to treat me to a few little luxuries in order to cheer me up and boy, did it work.

Inside the Jo Malone bag, within a box wrapped ever so beautifully was the heavenly Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray which smells just as delightful as it sounds. I have only tried candles and cologne from Jo Malone before and whilst I was impressed with the candle, the cologne was a slight disappointment for me. I found that it didn't last too long on the skin and before you knew it the scent was practically undetectable which is a real shame considering it is a luxury therefore on the pricey side. But enough about that, let me share with you the Lime Basil & Mandarin Room Spray, something I would never have thought to purchase for myself!

About the Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray:
"Our signature fragrance. Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze. A modern classic. A burst of enticing scent. Instantly create an impression with a Scent Surround™ Room Spray.

The Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Room Spray smells utterly perfect. Fresh and zesty, the Lime Basil & Mandarin fragrance is a scent made up of citrus, green and spicy notes. It isn't sickly sweet or overpowering, it has just the right amount of spice to it to take it from a completely citrus-y, lime based scent and to turn it into something a little more interesting. We all know how hard it is to put the smell of something into words but even if you don't think citrus fragrances will be for you, it is definitely one to take a look at next time you pass a Jo Malone counter.

The product itself comes housed in a 175ml spray bottle and as the scent is rather strong, you only need a short spray to fill the entire room with. I love to spray it in my bedroom before I get cosy to binge watch Love Island and it makes my room smell absolutely wonderful. I have also been known it spray it onto my body as a body spray and I can confirm that it lingers for just the same amount of time, if not longer, than the cologne so make of that what you will!

I believe that the Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Room Spray will make for a perfect house warming present, or simply just for a gift to yourself to brighten up your day. It smells too good for words and yeah, let's not pretend it isn't expensive at £44 a bottle but as a special gift and a little treat of luxury, it is perfect.
