Surely an offer to good too be true, well unfortunately, yes it is. I know, I know and particularly when the weather gauge seems to have been slammed to Arctic conditions, I shouldn’t tease you. But what you can do is metaphorically slip away to the relaxing and Sareen oasis that is Tuscan countryside, with the new Cologne Intense by Jo Malone London, Orris & Sandalwood. A wonderful new scent which has the surprising duality of orris. Woody and floral. Powdery and deep. The scent of Tuscan hillsides with irises in bloom. Orris’ woody intensity wrapped in creamy sandalwood and sensual amber. Steeped in sunshine. Captivating and compelling, see you could almost be there.
Master Perfumer of the new fragrance, Pierre Négrin, who has in the past been responsible for iconic fragrances from such houses as Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and Ralph Lauren, says of his creation, “We wanted to work with orris because it’s an extremely precious ingredient in perfumery. Orris is the root of the iris plant and it has been harvested in Tuscany for centuries, originally by monks.This scent was about framing the orris to bring out its unique duality; it is both woody and powdery, floral and deep. We achieved this by using other woods as well as painting a picture of the iris flower itself.”
