If you're going to ask me what my most favorite perfume brand is, it would be Jo Malone. I like the brand's simple, straightforward yet standout scents: The formulations are pure and familiar, ergo choosing the scent that you prefer is easy and more importantly, you definitely know what fragrance to expect. What I like most about Jo Malone's colognes is that they are so distinct: I own three Jo Malone colognes, and each of them has their own character and admirers. When it comes to fragrances, I guess when you just trust the ingredients to work on their own and don't try to become commercialized, (lol) you come up with beautiful and unique products. However, not everyone can and are willing to shell out 6k+ on a bottle of cologne. So to those who want to experience something that's similar to the pureness of Jo's world- famous fragrances, you guys might wanna check out Kiehl's Aromatic Blends.
KIEHL'S AROMATIC BLENDS IN ORANGE FLOWER AND LYCHEE AROMATIC MIST IN DETAIL
What's an Aromatic Mist anyway? It's actually a cologne/body mist, but has better staying power. The thing is, pricey body mists/colognes such as Jo Malone and this one are not literally like colognes--it's just that they have the airy, light aura of regular colognes, but have the staying power of an EDT.

Where was I? Oh! This cologne. Orange Flower and Lychee opens up with a zingy burst of Lychee, and then the trail of Orange Flower starts setting in at the heart with drippings of Honey in the background. Finally, the base note is rounded out by a dash of Moroccan Rose, the perfect inclusion to tame this ultra energetic scent. The composition is just simple and clean, and you won't be overwhelmed by too many notes. If you want a fragrance that doesn't necessarily smell anything like a perfume, (if you know what I mean) you might like this.
I was a little half hearted about this fragrance the first time I used it as it kinda' resembled Harajuku Lovers' Angel EDT, but it just grew on me, especially when I smelled Moroccan Rose in it. This fragrance stays light and cheerful all- throughout with a hint of spice, and its exoticism encapsulates the colorful culture and sights of Morocco. (I've always wanted to go there!) It's a fragrance that's perfect for the liberated and bohemian at heart, or just about any unconventional chic and dude with a flair for adventure. (Yes, I categorize it as a unisex fragrance) On the technical aspect, staying power is okay for a mist- it lasts for about 2 hours on me. Bottle is a little bulky though-you might wanna transfer it to a smaller and more compact atomizer bottle. :p
Kiehl's Aromatic Blends line may not be as extensive and impressive as Jo Malone's selections, but I find that its array is good enough to match a variety of tastes and preferences. If you want something that literally reminds you of fields, trees, and anything green, go for Fig Leaf and Sage. If you prefer something that takes you on a stroll in a pretty flower garden, go for Nashi Blossom and Pink Grapefruit. And if you want something that will take you on a night time journey in a starry desert, go for Vanilla and Cedarwood.
