Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne

The name Jo Malone is synonymous with elegant, fresh scents and beautiful packaging – those minimalist cream and black boxes are so ooh la la. Her products have been tantalizing women around the globe for more than 15 years and have made Oprah’s enviable favorite things list.

This citrus scent is both bright and cheerful with the earthy warmth of vetiver at its heart. For me, it smells just like my mother. (And here’s a bonus: the scent of grapefruit on a women is said to make her seem an average of 6 years younger to the opposite sex. Now there’s a gift that keeps on giving!)

Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne, 50 mL, Holt Renfrew, $118.
