Jo Malone Rare Teas Collection & Nashi Blossom

For Jo Malone fans with fond memories of their 2011 quintet of tea fragrances, the upcoming Rare Teas collection is not to be missed. Debuting in April in Taiwan and other markets, there will be six fragrances available - Darjeeling Tea, Golden Needle Tea, Jade Leaf Tea, Midnight Leaf Tea, Oolong Tea and Silver Needle Tea. Fragrantica has some information on the notes of each fragrance. The Taiwan press release is here.


Following this is a limited edition Nashi Blossom Cologne launching on 6 May in Japan. Available in 30ml and 100ml, it has notes of lemon, pear blossom, rose and white musk.


Jo Malone's most recent Herb Garden collection was a disappointing clutch of forgettable, bland scents for me, so I was glad that I waited to test them in person instead of ordering blind. Instead, I splurged on a longtime lemming, Trish McEvoy's No. 9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk.
