Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne

jo+malone+vanilla+and+anise Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise CologneIf you surveyed the perfumes on my vanity, you’d surely notice that the common thread amongst my favorites (the half empty bottles) is vanilla.

Most days, I smell like some variation of vanilla. But as I get older, I’m constantly searching for a more sophisticated take on the scent. I love vanilla, but I don’t want to smell like cake frosting 24/7.

So I was thrilled to recently make the acquaintance of Vanilla & Anise, the latest fragrance from Jo Malone – a spicy, modern interpretation of my favorite flava.
