Do not judge this perfume after the first spray. Wait until it dries down- maybe 45 minutes to two hours- to appreciate the true scent.
Jo Malone describes this cologne as a 'spicy splendor', and while the initial spray gives a warm spicy (that is where I smell the cardamom initially) scent, the spiciness dries down and you are left with a warm, deep, creamy milk, perfectly balanced hint of spice fragrance. There is a floral smell but it is not cloying sweet, it is warm sweet.
One word I would give this cologne is- warm! After taking a hot shower with your favorite milky soap, and you feel clean and fresh and 'warm'... that is this cologne to me. I have read many reviews where people have said they put this on before bed, and so do I because of that warm scent, AND because it smells SO GOOD after 8 hours!
I am hyper aware of wearing perfume around people. Some people, like me, cannot handle strong perfumes, or certain smells. With this I have no problem wearing in a group setting or having my two grandbabies cuddle really close to me for fear they or others might feel sick from the smell. There is no heavy, rich, sweet, candy, cloying 'sweaty ' smell!
Lastly, this pairs well with other scents. I have combined with a coconut and milk scent and the two paired are amazing!! I absolutely love this fragrance.
French Lime Blossom has been my go-to scent for the last 12 years or so, but when the weather is cooler and I was something with a bit more depth and warmth, I reach for Mimosa & Cardamom. It's not too heavy, woody, or 'exotic' like most scents in this category-- I find it very wearable, even in the day or at work.
Doing reviews on Jo Malone is so subjective (for reference my fragrance combo is Wood Sage and Sea Salt cologne mixed with Blackberry and Bay). It just didn't react great with my body chemistry, it dried down into a too sweet scent. If you like the notes in it, I would definitely give it a try, Jo Malone are literally the only colognes I can wear without taking a claritin, you think they have no staying power but then you can smell them on your clothes the next day still. This may not have been my scent, but I definitely recommend finding notes you like, and I guarantee you'll love it when you find your perfect combo!
