Jo Malone Incense and Cedrat

You know that post the other day where I talked about the Jo Malone new launches and how there are a fair few coming now? Well, here’s another one to show you. This is a new addition to the line up on the Cologne Intense range. This is Jo Malone Incense and Cedrat – if you like your scents heady and smokey, then this is one you want to check out.

The notes of Incense and Cedrat include lemon, pepper, elemi, olibanum, labdanum and benzoin. Ok, so don’t as me what those things are. But it smells smokey and incense-y. It reminds me of something but I can’t put my finger on what it is. It’s just got something really warming and cosy about it that I really like.

In terms of actual wearing the fragrance – it is heady, so not for the faint of heart (or nose). It would work well layered perhaps with something with complimentary notes. I reckon maybe Orange Blossom would sit well with it? I’m going to try some combinations and see how it goes. Personally, I’m good with darker/heavier scents so this works for me for night – but for day I’d want to layer it to lighten it a little.

How do you feel about darker scents such as the Cologne Intense?

    I love smoky scents! The labdanum is strong in this one. Please post a follow up if you try it with the orange blossom and it works out 🙂

    When I last visited the Cologne Intense line appealed to me most, however it’s the wrong time of year for me to invest in something so deep, I think! xx
