Jo Malone: Velvet Rose and Oud

If you’re a fan of the beautifully exquisite Jo Malone fragrances then you’ll want to pull up a chair. Joining the other five limited edition Cologne Intense fragrances, the new Velvet Rose and Oud is delightfully different for a summer scent. It’s certainly not light and airy, nor is it floral or fruity; this dusky and dark fragrance is designed for those of you who like an intense and musky scent. I have no idea what Oud is, nor do I know if there’s such a thing as a Velvet Rose outside of table decorations, but together they make a very distinctive perfume. It’s a little to heavy for my personal taste, but I can imagine my older family members liking this as their preference is for the more weighty scents they were brought up with. I love the black glass bottle though, making this feel very vintage and ladylike amongst a shelf of clear concoctions.

Available now priced £95.00 for 100ml

    I REALLY want this! I adore Jo Malone fragrances, with pomegranate noir and red roses being utter favourites. This would be my perfect summere evening scent! Shame my budget is not able to be stretched that far… Never mind, will have to continue with spritzes each time I pass bby the store! xxx
