Jo Love Perfume (and so do I), part 5: A Shot of Thai Lime Over Mango

Wow. This is fantastic. The website says the notes are mango, kaffir lime, black pepper, mint leaves, and vetiver.

On first spray, A Shot of Thai Lime Over Mango is like being slapped in the face with a bowl of freshly-cut mango drizzled in fresh lime juice. The mango and lime is bright, zingy, sharp, and sweetly refreshing. After five minutes or so, there’s subtle cooling mintiness and black pepper which gives a bit of contrasting warmth. Five minutes after that, there’s the sweet warm woodiness of thyme too, which gives the whole thing a more grounded feel. The mango sweetness stayed for a few hours, but six hours after application, was hardly detectable at all.

This scent is perfect for a sunny day, a holiday, or a day you wish was sunny but isn’t. I just wish it lasted longer on the skin.
