I just got the chance to try the NEW Jo Malone London Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense perfume and it’s GOOD. I like it because it’s a very unique scent nothing I’ve smelled before, it’s woody, not at all floral or fruity (I don’t like floral fruity perfumes), it’s intense, perfect for night time, I can see you drawing some attention (in a good way).
I’ve first discovered the Jo Malone store in New York City about 10 years ago. I remember buying their (can you believe) Lime Blossom perfume, well I guess our tastes change over time, ha! If you like Tom Ford BLACK ORCHID perfume and the NEW Coco Noir by CHANEL you night also like this.
via Jo Malone London: Darkest Damask rose. Rich and textural, wrapped with smoky oud wood. Spiked with clove, decadent with praline. Velvet Rose & Oud joins the much-desired Cologne Intense Collection for a limited time. An addictive addition to the other five deeply sensual scents, inspired by centuries-old traditions of layering scents, incenses and oils. Laced with precious ingredients. Lightened by a contemporary touch Delicious worn alone, or layered with other Jo MaloneTM scents to add textural depth.
Mist it with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily to mingle spices and incense and introduce an air of calming sensuality or Oud & Bergamot to intensify the allure of precious woods.
