The many pages of Nouvelle have never actually seen a Jo Malone Cologne Intense review, but when we experienced the exquisite notes of their latest release, well it was only fair we shared the love…
JO MALONE INCENSE & CEDRAT COLOGNE INTENSE, £110
Like all Jo Malone fragrances, this scent is entirely unique and unlike anything we’ve ever worn before; the exotic blend is both woody and floral, a masculine musk with a feminine kick.
The luxurious concoction is something to spritz on for an important occasion; the spicy notes are both warm and inviting, and the scent lingers on skin for hours of wear.
The fragrance is being released in June, and it’s a somewhat adventurous choice for a summer scent – this is rich and musky, not light and floral like the seasonal scents we’re used to. And yet, something about this is entirely welcoming, once spritzed on skin it seems like the perfect fragrance for the warm weather – and beyond. It’s definitely something that could be worn all year round, and perhaps even as a base for a light scent if you like to layer your fragrances.
This is absolutely a unisex offering, it adapts beautifully to the wearer and it’s such a mesmerising mix of notes that it becomes a versatile pick for any occasion. Most would prefer it for evening events, but it’s a fragrance that holds it’s own.
Another beautiful Jo Malone release!
A dreamy wonder, and a bottle that will last you years if stored right. Will you be sniffing this on counter?
