I am very happy about this! There’s something new coming from Jo Malone London next year and it is gorgeous. Think warm, sensual, deep and woody with stunning violet notes – here’s a sneak peek of Jo Malone Orris and Sandalwood Cologne Intense.
Jo Malone Orris and Sandalwood Cologne Intense Notes
- Top Note – Violet
- Heart Note – Orris (iris plant root)
- Base Note – Sandalwood
Gosh it is lovely. There is something really old fashioned about this fragrance with it’s pleasantly powerful violet top note, but the earthiness of the woody orris gives it an edge that keeps it feeling modern and fresh.
The soft warm base of amber and sandalwood give it a smooth, gently spicy sensuality that sits on the skin perfectly. And it lasts and last. I sprayed this on my skin yesterday morning and I could still detect it when I went to bed last night. I love that. There’s nothing like a truly lasting fragrance.
Jo Malone Orris and Sandalwood Cologne Intense is described as “Woody and floral. Powdery and deep. The scent of Tuscan hillsides with irises in bloom”. It is really beautiful.
Jo Malone London love to suggest different ways to wear their fragrances, and they recommend layering Orris & Sandalwood with Mimosa and Cardamom or Dark Amber and Ginger Lily. I will give those a try but I absolutely love it on it’s own.
Jo Malone Orris and Sandalwood Cologne Intense is £105 for 100ml and launches January 2016. Find Jo Malone London HERE. While you’re waiting check out the Christmas gifts, you could make someone very happy!
