Last week we were invited to experience the new fragrance collection by Jo Malone London – Wild Flowers & Weeds at their Auckland launch event. As always is was a magical experience. You really get a feel for the story of each Jo Malone London fragrance, how and why the concept came about and then you are taken through the journey of its development. Its so lovely to be taken through this process so you can understand each unique scent in the collection and how they work together.
Below is a description of the five distinctive Colognes:
Hemlock & Bergamot
Hemlock’s powdery petals, brightened with bergamot. A deadly, yet unexpectedly-delicate flower. Illuminated with golden mimosa and a floral flourish of heliotrope. Crisp and modern with a bite of cucumber.
Cade & Cedarwood
The smouldering embers of a wood-burning stove at nightfall. Basking in the warm and comforting glow
of cade – its smoky scent mingled with cedarwood and complemented by a mouth-watering hint
of sensual vanilla.
Lupin & Patchouli
Reminiscent of canal banks, awash with colour. A rainbow of lupin flowers, enriched by luxurious rose and deepened with rebellious patchouli. A surprising contrast with the fresh vibrancy of mandarin.
Willow & Amber
The expressive weeping willow, gently draping across the fresh morning water. Captured in the woody pairing of cashmere wood and smoky vetiver, enhanced by softly sensual amber.
Nettle & Wild Achillea
The tangy sting of nettle, peeking through pavement cracks and entwined with wild, white achillea flower. Sparkling with bright bergamot, the greenness softened by a soft base of white musk.
Our favourite two colognes in the collection are Willow & Amber and Cade & Cedarwood. But they are all delightful and there really is something there for everyone.
The Colognes are available in 30ml bottles, decorated with printed illustrations of the key ingredients of each fragrance inspired by a traditional painting style. Customers will receive a matching keepsake tin with purchases of two scents from the collection, or the full line-up.
