Penhaligons Peoneve and Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Review

Two scents I’ve been really enjoying wearing lately are the lush floral Peoneve by Penhaligons, and the slightly astringent, green and very intriguing Blackberry & Bay by Jo Malone. If you’ve ever buried your face into a bunch of peonies,  you’ll know their blousy blossoms have a big juicy, lush and very pink scent.  Almost fruity, in fact, but delightfully fun and refreshing.  I adore […]
