Jo Malone is really popping out a lot of newness right now. Including this British heritage based collection – Jo Malone Rock The Ages Rock The Ages. With five fragrances in the collection – all limited edition and 30ml sizes only available. The five scents being Tudor Rose & Amber, Lily of the Valley & Ivy, Geranium & Verbena, Pomegranate Noir (a main line fragrance but in the LE packaging for this collection), Birch & Black Pepper.
I am already a HUGE fan of Pomegranate Noir – in every shape and form – fragrance, candle, and reed diffusers. But here we have the gorgeously fresh Geranium & Verbena which is basically my ideal scent of fresh and woody all at the same time. Then there’s the Birch & Black Pepper which is all woody, spicy and smokey and borderline masculine.
For me, it’s the Birch & Black Pepper that really stood out as the most unique of the collection. It lends itself really nicely for the signature layering of Jo Malone. In fact this with Pomegranate Noir is rather lovely for a dialled up sexy nighttime fragrance. Each of the fragrances are designed to capture an essence of British history from the Tudors to punk. Birch & Black Pepper is meant to capture modern day Britain with a combination of tradition and pop culture. Geranium & Verbena is inspired by the Edwardian period – capturing garden parties and a feeling of ‘Aristocracy’.
