Jo Malone LondonTM have launched their Rock The Ages collection, with fragrances exploring the scented history of Britain from Tudor times to the present day. No musty old museum pieces are present: Rock The Ages celebrates the very best perfumery ingredients that we Brits have delighted in dousing ourselves with throughout history, but presented in the distinctively sophisticated style for which Jo Malone LondonTM are globally renowned.
If you fancy celebrating the launch of Rock The Ages with us in an exclusive perfume-sniffing, fizz-sipping, perfectly-pampering Edinburgh event, read more here…
With Henry VIII and his more-than-fair-share of spouses splashed all over the press in the manner of modern-day celebs, lately, the first fragrance in the collection seems particularly appropriate…
Tudor Rose & Amber Cologne ‘The heraldic Tudor rose, still used today as a royal symbol of England. Blended with opulent rose absolute, clove and ginger, to reinforce the spiced facet. Golden amber wraps the fragrance in warm sensuality. Rich, sumptuous.’
Lily of the Valley & Ivy Cologne ‘Reminiscent of the pastel gentility of Georgian London. Sparkling cassis and green ivy open the fragrance while the dewy delicacy of lily of the valley and decadent narcissus add a lavish heart. Captivating, ethereal.’
Pomegranate Noir Cologne ‘The Victorian era, a golden age embracing the English drama. Luscious and juicy pomegranate is layered with heady Casablanca lily and spiked with the cool spice, pink pepper. Sensual guaiacwood weaves through the scent. Dramatic, intense.’
Geranium & Verbena Cologne ‘The cool elegance of Edwardian summers. Aromatic verbena and basil are blended with refined and elegant geranium. Enveloped with coumarin and vetiver for a charismatic and unexpected scent. Clean, herbaceous.’
Birch & Black Pepper Cologne ‘Britain today. A scent of contrasts. Black pepper and cardamom add a cool spiciness, layered with smoky birch. An accord of magnetic ink juxtaposed with the smooth warmth of gurjum. A surprising, sensual scent. Individual, audacious, stylish.’
We adore the dressing-up box way the bottle-tops have been so inventively decorated, with swathes of fabric inspired by the era each fragrance represents – but most of all we love the idea of getting your nose stuck into history by celebrating the best of British traditions (and it’s far more pleasurable than studying for your history finals, let’s face it!) In fact, we’re so taken with the whole collection that On Friday 13th March, we will be hosting an evening event at in Edinburgh, at the George Street flagship store for Jo Malone LondonTM , to celebrate the launch in style. Places are limited, so hurry over here to see how to reserve yours, now!
