Earl Grey and Cucumber is a very English scent, based on the British tradition of tea, the classic Earl Grey with its Bergamot top note, and cucumber with provides the heart of its new fragrance. We haven't sampled it yet, but it sounds like it could work, with the exotic fragrance of bergamot contrasting with the cool succulence of cucumber. Additional ingredients are beeswax, vanilla and musk. It is a feature of Jo Malone fragrances that they can be blended with other perfumes by the same house, and in this case, they recommend layering it with grapefruit, or nutmeg & ginger.
Available at retailers from January 2013.
