Lime Basil Mandarin
By Lane Reid
Created by one of England’s most famous fragrance lines, Jo Malone. A London esthetician and florist, Jo Malone initially created her scents as gifts for her clients. Those clients loved their scents so much that the orders came pouring in, turning her “gifts” into her highly successful fragrance line. Lime Basil Mandarin was launched in 1991 and is still one of Jo Malone’s best selling fragrances today. The citrus notes are zesty and uplifting while the basil lends an herbaceous depth. This fragrance can chase away the blues on a rainy day! For those of you who can’t get enough of this amazing scent, it is available in candles and diffusers for the home as well. This stylish unisex fragrance line is great for someone that doesn’t necessarily want to smell like perfume. It’s different scents can be layered to create your own signature scent. We at 10rate enjoy these unique Jo Malone fragrances and she gets major points for originality. Personally, I wish I didn’t love so many! On the pricey side, the cologne can be purchased from $55.00 – $110.00.
It’s classified as a citrus and it’s notes are:

Middle – Basil, caraway, lilac and iris

Definitely not a “commercial” scent. This unique fragrance will not appeal to everyone.
