The aromatic elements of garden herbs are the foundation for Jo Malone London’s newest limited-edition fragrance collection, a captivating and delectable batch of aromatic artistry influenced by a day in the garden. Fragrant foliage, flowers, and fruit combine to produce these totally fresh and original scents, created by master perfumer Anne Flipo.
The beguiling and addictive fragrances include:
Sorrel & Lemon Thyme: Sparkling zest of lemon wakes up a bright bouquet of bigarade and petitgrain, gently exposing the herbaceous heart of sorrel, lemon thyme and rosemary. Beneath, verdant geranium leaves and earthy moss grow complexity at the roots, uplifting the citrus to an elegant finale.
Wild Strawberry & Parsley: The peppery bite of at-leaf parsley and tang of tomato leaves mingle with ripe blackcurrant before a delicate note of wild strawberries adds sweetness. Leafy violet springs up through the mossy undergrowth. A green and succulent accord in the air draws you deeper into the garden.
Nasturtium & Clover: Carpets of cool clover cut with peppery rocket get bright and fresh with a complement of sparkling lemon. Nasturtium blooms at the core, entwined with jasmine petals. At its nish, the perennial pleasure of vetiver grounds the fragrance in an addictive warmth.
Carrot Blossom & Fennel: A hybrid of refinement and whimsy, the first impression of just-ripe carrot entwined with fresh fennel immediately hooks with a distinctive twist. Rose and orange flower water bloom brightly with the earthy sweetness of heritage carrot while the oral elegance of iris punctuates an unforgettable finish.
Lavender & Coriander: A garden state of mind takes over the senses when a refreshing blend of English and French lavender opens the aromatic gates with a jumpstart of striking coriander. Earthy sage deepens the scent with a natural woodiness. Finally, the unexpected warmth of tonka bean adds depth and sensual balance to the exquisite richness.
