Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit is one of those annoying limited time releases I tend to hate. This one I’ll hate just when it’s gone. Never in my life has my biscuits smelled like this out of the oven – as delicious as the always do smell when I make them. Then again, I never put ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, hazelnuts, tonka bean and vanilla in my biscuits. Not sure I want to, unless it was so it would smell like this. I need this in a diffuser oil so my house can smell like this all the time.
It is as warm and snuggly as it sounds. With snow forecast here for the next few days, this is perfection. I tried to figure out some progression of this, and I just couldn’t. The gourmand notes are all swirled around with warm hazelnuts and the occasional puff of ginger and cinnamon. I don’t find it deeply gourmand. I mean, it is gourmand, but not sickly sweet. It’s just one of those addictive kind of things. Perfect for winter, so maybe it should disappear by spring?
Jo Malone Ginger Biscuit is a comfort perfume, if you want or need one. I would have thrown this on my best of winter list if I’d had it then. If you hate those huffy addictive hazelnut things, skip it.
