Are you a sweet tooth? I am... Guilty as charged!
I must admit that one birthday of mine I made it very clear to my mother that I wasn't remotely bothered about savoury food and all I wanted was three desserts: a baked alaska, a boozy trifle and Heston Blumenthal's "Perfect" Black Forest Gateaux. That was a good birthday.
As soon as Spring comes a-knocking, though, I have a sudden craving to get my sugar rush, so imagine my joy when the lovely ladies at Jo Malone sent me through some samples of their latest Limited Edition fragrances- the Sugar and Spice collection.
I was sent the delicious Ginger Biscuit, the scrummy Redcurrant and Cream and the controversial Bitter Orange and Chocolate. I've written up a little about each below, but am still dying to try the other two editions- Lemon Tart and Gooseberry and Elderflower! Both others sound delicious, but i'm particularly intrigued by the Gooseberry and Elderflower, particularly given that Elderflower is my favourite sweet taste of the moment- particularly in a cocktail.
These retail for £38 each, available in Jo Malone boutiques and from Selfridges online, but are only available for a limited time, so if you need your sugar rush i'd get on it now... The Ginger Biscuit is my favourite!
