How to keep hair smell so good even when staying outdoors all day? The secret is out…


A few weeks ago, Jo Malone launched a limited edition scent — Star Magnolia and it includes a hair mist, which I think we need! Keeping hair smell good ALL day can be a challenge, especially if you live in a tropical country with a very hot and humid weather. Agree? Well, if you need to be outdoors most of the time, it is nearly impossible, to be honest. But of course, Jo Malone always has the answer when it comes to fragrance or scent dilemmas.

Jo Malone Star Magnolia

This limited edition fragrance, Star Magnolia, is created by Master Perfumer Anna Flipo with the following tasting notes:

Top notes: Lemon
Middle notes: Star Magnolia
Base notes: Sandal wood

Star Magnolia is available in Cologne and in Hair Mist.


Jo Malone Star Magnolia Packaging

The first time I saw the packaging, I already imagined how refreshing the scent is. The gradient bottle from clear to white already exudes that vibe. It also has white floral petals at the base of the diffuser, which is quite different from Jo Malone’s usual simple and classic black and white. But of course, this lady won’t complain. They are really pretty. And if you are a Jo Malone collector, this limited edition bottle is a must-have.


Jo Malone Star Magnolia Review

Thinking about it, I do not own a fragrance that has Magnolia scent. It is not as common as other floral scents, like rose, jasmine, etc. Thankfully, Jo Malone released Star Magnolia!

When first sprayed on skin, the zesty lemon stands out. Then, the magnolia flower slowly unfolds. It dries down to a soft powdery finish.

It was love at first spray for me! It is my kind of fragrance — light, soft, ethereal and refreshing! It is sweet, which is distinctly floral. It is the kind of scent that is perfect for summer, which is all year round here in the Philippines, or for first dates. For a soft creamy scent, it is impressive that it can last throughout the day.

And if you’re wondering why is there a need for Jo Malone to release a hair mist if you can just use the cologne on your hair, well, Jo Malone Star Magnolia Hair Mist has high-shine conditioning treatments. You can wear it alone or layer it with a complementary cologne.


Jo Malone Star Magnolia is definitely not difficult to love. It is not your usual floral perfume that’s quite strong and distinct. Star Magnolia has that “soft-focus” scent, making it an ethereal fragrance. I have been using both the cologne and the hair mist almost everyday ever since I got them!
