Jo Malone Kohdo Wood Collection

Introducing The Kohdo Wood Collection by Jo Malone.

The long awaited re-launch of the Kohdo Wood Collection is almost here! The limited edition Kohdo Wood collection has been in high demand from the very first launch two years ago and will hit counters once again in April 2010. The two captivating fragrances, Lotus Blossom & Water Lily and Dark Amber & Ginger Lily were created as a modern interpretation of Kohdo, the ancient Japanese art of incense appreciation. Part of the Kohdo Wood Collection, Lotus Blossom & Water Lily can be worn alone or combined with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily to create an intoxicating scent.

Lotus Blossom & Water Lily’s blend of mandarin, sacred lotus blossom, bamboo and aloeswood, encourages energy, inspires confidence and focuses the mind, making it the ideal scent to use during the day.

Mandarin is vibrant and lively in nature. Referred to as the little heart of the sun, it is thought to shed light on the drudgeries of the everyday and encourage a sense of joy. The nature of the sacred lotus blossom is serene and spiritual, representing the dawning of a new day. Bamboo offers strength and grace, a symbol of longevity and the path towards enlightenment, while aloeswood, whose character is refined and rich, is believed to impart both mental and physical benefits to balance the mind and body.

Dark Amber & Ginger Lily’s combination of cardamom, orchid and kyara wood is designed to cleanse the senses and encourage calmness, relaxation and positive thought, making it the perfect scent to use from early evening into the night.

Originally used as a perfume in ancient times, black cardamom is aromatic and smoky in nature with an air of unmistakably clean sensuality. The orchid, a magnificent flower, carries a universal message of beauty and wisdom. As a base for incense, kyara wood is held in the highest regard and is prized for its rarity and richness. With its deep, dark and rich nature, kyara wood has a resinous, relaxing aura, appropriate for meditation. An exotic and exquisite combination, this dark and sensual mix of ingredients embodies the essence of evening.

Part of the Kohdo Wood Collection, Dark Amber & Ginger Lily, can be worn alone or with Lotus Blossom & Water Lily to create an intoxicating scent.
