What Are You Buying?

1. Travel-size Men’s Cologne Collection

Each Jo Malone’s cologne in this collection is 9ml. Their small size makes them perfect for travelling. They take up very little space in your luggage and you stay under the 100ml liquid limit for most airlines.

If you travel often, it’s a good idea to put together a travel kit that includes travel-size toiletries like shampoos, toothpaste, and mouthwash. Add this Jo Malone cologne collection to that kit.

2. Cologne Sample Pack

The Jo Malone cologne collection also works great as a sample pack. Buying cologne, especially online, is a difficult decision. Colognes are highly subjective. Just because other people say a particular one smells nice on them doesn’t mean that it will smell just as good on you.

Shopping for the right cologne is particularly hard if you are just starting out in the whole perfumes and fragrances business. You’ve yet to figure out your signature scents.

Getting a sample pack is a great way to find the best cologne for yourself. The Jo Malon men’s cologne collection has five different fragrances that you can try out before you splurge a lot of money on a particular cologne.

Once you’ve tried them all, you can pick your favourite and confidently order it in regular size.

If you don’t like any of them, Jo Malone has other travel/sample-size cologne collections you can try.

3. 5 Types of Fragrances

Here’s what’s included in this Jo Malone men’s cologne collection. Remember all these come in 9ml bottles.

  • Lime Basil & Mandarin Cologne — a citrusy cologne with herby and woody undernotes. It is a bright and fresh fragrance that pairs well with earthier colognes.
  • Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne — the aromatic, crisp and marine notes in this cologne give it a very outdoors feel. The base sage note makes it easy to blend it with other fragrances.
  • Silver Birch & Lavender Cologne — this cologne combines fresh citrus notes of grapefruit with a floral scent of lavender and the woody fragrance of silver birch.
  • Myrrh & Tonka Cologne Intense — This cologne projects a more powerful fragrance than standard colognes. It’s also quite unique, combining notes of lavender, myrrh and tonka bean.
  • Cypress & Grapevine Cologne Intense —  This is an intense woody cologne with aromatic and earthy undernotes.

What we love most about this Jo Malone collection is how varied it is in terms of fragrances. You get something citrusy, floral, woody and there’s even a marine fragrance (the sage & sea salt cologne).

This collection provides a great opportunity to test a wide range of fragrances to help you decide which ones you like most. You might discover you love the strong woody notes of the Cypress & Grapevine or maybe you are more into the citrus scent of the Lime Basil & Mandarin cologne.

By the way, the Jo Malone men’s collection is carefully put together with compatible fragrances. So as you try out individual colognes, you can also try pairing them. You might find you love a particular blend better than a single cologne.

How Good Are The Colognes?

Jo Malone colognes are generally well regarded. Their fragrances are very realistic. So if you order a lavender cologne, it smells like actual lavender. Their colognes tend to be light and subtle with a low projection (meaning they are only detectable from up close).

This makes them a great pick for anyone shopping for a soft and subtle cologne. If you are shopping for a strong hyper masculine cologne, Jo Malone is probably not the right house to buy from. In fact, though this particular collection is labelled as being for men, most of the colognes included are unisex. It’s a great travel or sample cologne pack even for ladies.

The only issue many Jo Malone customers have with their colognes and perfumes is that they don’t last all day. Most of the fragrances fade away after 4-6 hours, leaving behind a very subtle base note.

But overall, Jo Malone colognes are a good value for money.

What Accessories Are Included?

This pack includes five Jo Malone London colognes. No extra accessories are included.


  • Great for travelling.
  • Ideal for those looking for a new cologne and want to test a few.
  • Wide variety of fragrances.
  • Realistic scents.


  • Most of the colognes don’t last for very long – not suitable if you are looking for an all-day cologne.

Anything Else You Should Know?

In addition to being great for travel and as a sample pack, the Jo Malone cologne collection is also a perfect gift set. Jo Malone even offers complimentary gift wrapping.


This 5-piece Jo Malone London men’s cologne collection is a great buy if you are looking for cologne to add to your travel kit, want to find a new Jo Malone cologne, or you are looking for a nice gift for a man.

The set contains a good variety of fragrances that you can wear individually or layer as you wish.
