Sweet Milk was an impulse purchase (luckily I was with my husband who wanted me to select one bottle of my choice for my birthday). I took one whiff and I knew I had to have this. HAD to.
Part of the five item Tea Collection, Sweet Milk is the one that stands out for me. The others are fresh, tea-based colognes more of the usual Jo Malone variety. Fleeting, but refreshing and nicely done (by Christine Nagel, btw).
Sweet Milk is a scent to lean, to snuggle, to fall into, to cuddle up with and let go of all sorrow. It comes in 30ml bottles and is limited edition. Aargh, for once I would want a 250ml, ah, heck a 500ml vat delivered to my door every six months. I have Sweet Milk for barely a week and it is almost half empty already.
I need to be quick with my review, before it is gone.
Notes include star anise, heliotrope, bergamot, milk, caramel, vanilla, almond and musk.
Despite being a cologne, Sweet Milk is very long wearing, it is a skin-scent, no big sillage, but a definite presence. People who come close inevitably compliment me and ask what I am wearing. I am almost reluctant to tell them, for fear that they all run out and buy up the meagre supply the Vienna Jo Malone boutique has, leaving nothing for me to replenish my dwindling supply. I am glad most of you readers are not in Vienna.
Sweet Milk reminds me of my children, when they were newborns. So sweet and innocent, so pure and cuddly and cozy and warm.
Sweet Milk is a wonderful comfort scent, it makes me happy in one sniff. It figures that such a pleasure has a definite end, and one that is in sight already.
