Jo Malone Peony Blush & Suede Sample Review + Free Cafe Nero Drink

Hi Everyone!

So, a couple weeks back I did a post on some free perfume samples and dupes (you can see the old post here) and just last week I received my sample of the Jo Malone Peony Blush & Suede!

untitled (4)

I’ve said it before but I love their promo picture!

I mentioned in my previous post that I love how their freebie promotion was quite a creative one and also that they sent a sample to your door, if you haven’t done so yet please please do sign up for one because I was quite blown away by the sample I received! It wasn’t just a sachet of perfume or anything like that, it was actually the tiniest little bottle with a spray top in very pretty packaging, it pretty much a travel-sized version which can usually be pretty expensive so this is a bargain!

Read on to see pictures and also about the Café Nero coffee voucher at the end =)


Here you can see the lovely box it came in plus a little bit of paper that lists all their other fragrances plus ingredients.


And here’s the bottle itself! Can you see it’s actually a tiny spray bottle?!

The spray bottle is quite ‘firm’, in that it takes a bit more effort than you’d expect to press down on it and considering that the bottle doesn’t come with a cap I think this is a very good and considerate design element. This is going straight into my travel-sized products bag!! I imagine it’s also very handy for if you want to pop a fragrance into your handbag for a night out or important day at work or something along those lines.

As for the smell itself, I didn’t actually like it that much at first (didn’t dislike it but didn’t love it either), I’d describe it as being sweet and musky, ‘suede’ is definitely apt for it’s name. Quite a mature scent I think and in general I prefer lighter things and I don’t really go for floral smells. The boyfriend said ‘it’s alright’, so I suppose to a generic male population it’d be, well, ‘alright’… (sorry, not very informative at all, this is why men don’t usually write beauty reviews!).

However, it’s growing on me a little and I imagine if musky, floral scents are your thing you’d absolutely love it!

And let’s not forget this sample is for free and is still very lovely, so just get it anyway you don’t really lose anything! Check out my old post here again on details for how to sign up for this =)
