About a year ago, I received this bar of soap as a gift. Initially I was thinking, “this is a nice, high quality soap, happy to receive.” I had never purchased or experienced a Jo Malone piece before. I could give a lengthy, descriptive story about my journey to appreciation—but I will spare you. Long story short, this bar of LBM soap was the catalyst to my true appreciation for the beauty and power of “scent.” This specific fragrance triggered a feeling of something deep, beautiful, and melancholic…I could not get enough of it! I have since purchased many more Jo Malone items, in this scent and others. I have not been disappointed once, so high quality. Not to be weird, but JM scents will trigger emotions. “Highly recommend” is an understatement.
