As a Scot I am more than used to the rain, in-fact I oddly like the rain. There is nothing more soothing than listening to huge rain drops while lying in bed and the scent of the ground after a storm will forever be one of my favourite fragrances. It seems deep down we all like rain to some degree and with that in mind Jo Malone has created four limited edition colognes all based on such weather condition which will launch in March 2014. I personally can not wait and need...yes that's right NEED all four, wither my bank balance will allow such spurge is of course another question.
Each fragrance in the Jo Malone London Rain line up has been created to capture a different setting and mood but the running theme seems to be freshness. The four new colognes are as follows: Rain and Angelica, White Jasmine and Mint, Wisteria and Violet and Black Cedarwood and Juniper. Rain and Angelica has been formulated to mimic early morning dew with fresh notes of rain water, fresh lime, angelica and vetiver. White Jasmine and Mint has been created with afternoon showers in mind, perhaps some grey clouds and a rainbow in sight? This is achieved using notes of fresh mint, heirloom jasmine and mate leaf. There is also Wisteria and Violet which mimics gentle morning showers using notes of water lily, wisteria, violet and patchouli. Lastly there is Black Cedarwood and Juniper which is of course the night version and perhaps based around the comforting sound I earlier mentioned. This is achieved with the notes of cumin, chilli leaves, juniper and cedar - this of course is the most intense offering out of the quad.
I for one can not wait for March to come around, the line sounds perfect for Spring and all the little April showers that follow!
