La vie bohème: Everyone’s heard it, and some—if not all—are intrigued by it. Sure, bohemia isn’t for everyone, but the idea of living an unconventional lifestyle and travelling around the world, namely during the Victorian Era, collecting textiles and other treasures, has its appeal. At least Jo Malone London thinks so. Recently, the fragrance powerhouse was so inspired by bohemian havens that it decided to launch Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne, which captures the essence of free spirits. With notes of cardamom, mimosa, and tonka bean, this scent is an unusual but wonderful combination.
Scroll down for more on the three main ingredients that give this fragrance a bohemian flair.
At first, cardamom can smell like eucalyptus, which quickly evolves into something much sweeter, spicier, and warmer. This ancient spice is extremely calming and perfect for someone wanting to embrace a laid back lifestyle.
A little sensual, with a lot of character, mimosa has extremely fresh, floral, powdery, and long-lasting notes that also give off a woody and honeyed aroma.
Tonka bean, which is similar to vanilla, has a warm, woody, and nutty smell to it that’s rich, creamy, and comforting.
