I kid you not when I say Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir is easily one of the most complex scents I have experienced in my life - it is dark, heedy, almost masculine and somewhat mysterious yet smells familiar. It has a fruity base yet is deep and vampy with tiny hints of spice trickling through and couldn't be more fitting for the Autumn/Winter seasons. I am tempted to say it reminds me somewhat of refined mulled wine but that doesn't do it much justice. Pomegranate Noir is like a cognac (I swear I don't drink all that much honest...I promise) it warms, comforts, uplifts and leaves you feeling tingly and somewhat sleepy - imagine sitting beside a roaring fire in your glad rags with good company, and a glass of something warming in your hand and you'll have the general idea. One thing that is for sure is that it is unlike any other scent out there and is perfect for the currently disastrous winter weather we are experiencing.
If this is one of your favourite fragrances or perhaps you have always wanted to try out the somewhat cult fragrance then I would suggest it is now or never (well November when it officially launches). As you may have guessed the scent is the same beloved Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne but with beautiful, festive and limited edition packaging.
Speaking of the packaging as you can see Jo Malone have not only etched a visually stunning design onto the glass - it somewhat mimics ice and the delicateness of snow flakes while the red ribbon makes it very clear what season it is. I can't imagine a more beautiful gift to give or receive.
The festive edition of Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne will come in the 100ml size only and will launch via all the usual outlets this coming November. It should retail for around £85.
