Comfort scents have a season. A few times a year I get the urge to feel comforted and cozied by perfume. Mostly when the actual seasons change, I have my cuddly gourmand phases. Jo Malone Sweet Milk, Odin 01 Sunda, Lostmarc’h Lann-Ael or several Parfumerie Generale perfumes are in heavy rotation then.
Jacomo #08, part of the three-perfume Art Collection by the house of Jacomo, creators of the Mother of all green perfumes – Silences, is exactly what I need in times like this.
A fresh gingery-spicy start, a milky-cardamom heart and a sweet ambery drydown, this perfumes strikes all the right notes with me. It is easy to love, easy to wear and garners lots of compliments.
Jacomo #08 smells warm and cozy, but not in a heavy way, it is transparent and light enough to not feel too much even in the summer heat. It reminds me of tranquil evenings with friends and a cup of spicy tea in front of a fire, sitting and talking and laughing and just enjoying the moment.
It may be a fall/winter scent for most, but I enjoy it just as much right now, when it is hot outside.
The Art Collection features three perfumes (for now), all three designed along with original artwork to accompany it. #08 features beautiful Indian inspired art by Daniel Egnéus.
Jacomo #08 is a budget-friendly pleasure I can highly recommend.
