New: JO MALONE Velvet Rose & Oud
If Jo Malone’s just-launched Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense were a honey, it would be so rich, dark and thick it would barely drizzle off a silver spoon: this is deepest Damask Rose, luxurious and syrupy, with a hint of woody oud.
Spiked with clove and decadent with praline,Velvet Rose & Oud is less “British afternoon in June”, more sultry August night. Think dinner al fresco in London on the hottest night of the year, drinks on a roof terrace under a Marrakech midnight sky. Less of a cologne, more of a perfumed liqueur.
If you adore rose fragrances and feel like venturing away from the shabby chic raindrops-on-rose-petals scents we love so much in Britain, prepare to be seduced.
