A wonderful whisper of Earl Grey
Utterly lovely, a wonderfully balanced, refreshing composition.
This is meant to evoke the pleasure experienced when drinking a nice cup of Earl Grey tea. Christine Nagel managed to capture the smell of bergamot and jasmine without "overdoing" it. The fragrance offers a delicate impression rather than a loud and strong version of "Earl Grey". Bergamot can be felt in the topnotes, of course, whereas jasmine gradually emerges quite shyly on a bed of slightly aquatic notes mixed with apple. The drydown is lovely, too, with cedar and musk.
Well, there's just one little drawback: In the true Jo Malone-style, "Early Grey&Cucumber" is an Eau de Cologne, so it stays close to the skin and has little sillage. This said, it is still a wonderful scent that will have people around you sniffing the air with pleasure for the first 10 minutes after application (think of your bathroom). I used this as a pick-me-up fragrance for early mornings and had a 30 ml bottle, but I wouldn't mind owning a 100ml flacon of this gem!

It actually smells like cucumbers (well, and tea). This is not necessarily a good thing.

A very fresh and discrete unisex cologne , apparently simple , but with a complexe and well balanced bouquet. It's perfect in the hot season
