Today is about a special fragrance because it’s the fragrance that I wore on my wedding. It’s a bit of a funny story actually because Jo Malone Peony&Blush Suede wasn’t love at first sight for me. Unlike my crush on my husband when I first met him, lol! When Jo Malone released Peony&Blush Suede I sniffed it and thought it was too leathery. I liked it but I didn’t loved it and it quickly faded from my mind. It wasn’t until a year later when I got this sudden obsession with scented candles that I discovered a big love for the Peony&Blush Suede candle. I smelled it at the store and I was sold. It’s even better when you burn it. My wedding was getting closer and I knew I wanted a scent that was based on peonies. I decided on both Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet and Jo Malone Peony&Blush Suede. Eventually Jo Malone won and I wore it on my wedding. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is what I wore later on the wedding party.

Peony&Blush Suede is a cologne and this means that it’s quite transparent. You need quite some sprays to get something but it smells oh so good! On me it lasts a whole day and it develops in such a nice way! The top note is red apple. Middle notes are peony, jasmine, carnation and rose. The base note is suede. Thiss scent is without a doubt very floral but in a fresh way with a slight hint of fruitiness. It starts out a bit sharp and this is my least favourtie stage. You immediately get the suede but it’s a bit overpowering at first. Other dominant notes are peony, rose and red apple. Don’t worry though because it quickly goes to a much softer phase where the suede blends in with the peony to make a beautiful pair. This is my favourite phase. The peony starts blooming together with the rose. You get a sweeter note from the red apple that compliments the peony and the suede perfectly. The jasmine note is very faint and the carnation too.

On the end of the day I get this musky scent of peony and suede. It’s still there and it became a little less floral but still very beautiful. It’s not a boring scent on me, it has quite some phases, like a flower in bloom and each aspect is even better than the other. It’s very feminine and amazing on hotter days or romantic nights. I never would’ve thought that peony and suede would make such a fantastic pair but Peony&Blush Suede proves that it’s pure magic!
