Did I mention that I am obsessed with Jo Malone Intense colognes? Oh I did. If you have ever tested Jo Malone Intense Dark Amber and Ginger Lily fragrance be it in candle or cologne form I am more than sure you would understand. It is the type of fragrance that you could bathe in...well if you happen to be a multi-millionaire of course.
"Rare Kyara wood. Prized in the Kohdo ceremony, the highly ritualised Japanese art of incense appreciation. Enriched with amber and black orchid. Illuminated by the clean sensuality of black cardamom, ginger and water lily. Calm and relaxing."
Summing up Jo Malone Intense Dark Amber and Ginger Lily Cologne is tricky without overusing the term sublime, over and over again. It truly is exquisite, floral, clean (I instantly think of freshly washed Egyptian Cotton), comforting and long wearing - one quick mist will linger on the skin for the entire duration of a day. It neatly fits into the sensual, woody floral box without being overwhelming, dated or powdery. Although the majority of Jo Malone fragrance are aimed at being unisex this is most certainly a gentle, feminine scent. If you are a fan of Malin & Goetz Dark Rum Eau de Toilette but want something a little deeper and longer wearing this is the fragrance for you. No they are not identical but somewhat similar. I think Jo Malone Intense Dark Amber and Ginger Lily Cologne may be my favourite cologne ever and trust me that is no mean feat.
