I know it may be too early to officially call it - and who knows what further sensory magic the Jo Malone brand has tucked up its sleeve for 2017 - but so far I can truly say that the newest fragrance addition may just be favourite cologne to date - Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense. Trust me when I say, you'll be hearing a lot about this new creamy-yet-sensual fragrance explosion; in my humble opinion, Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense has all the potential to be the cult fragrance of 2017.
I have a huge soft spot for Jo Malone colognes in general but none more so than the cologne intense range; the slightly warmer and often spicy-come-heady notes not only sit better on my skin but wear better too - that's not to say that I'm not partial to the odd spritz of Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir. In the past, some have noted that Jo Malone cologne intense collection has been a smidgen too rich for day wear, well this is not the case with the latest launch - Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense. If ever I could describe a fragrance as the perfect people pleaser, it would be this. Far from being basic, this sensual, aromatic blend is special in that it is loved by all that are lucky enough to experience the perfectly blended notes - be they the wearer, or not and regardless of gender. Admittedly Jo Malone fragrances do tend to have a more feminine outreach but you will be hard pushed to find someone who wouldn't describe, Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense as being the very definition of unisex as it is not your typical, floral based Jo Malone concoction.
If I had to sum up Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense in one sweeping term, it would be understatedly sexy. This isn't a try hard fragrance, yes it makes a statement and more than stands out from the crowd due to the slightly unusual fragrance pyramid (lavender, myrrh and Tonka bean with vanilla and almond at the base) but it doesn't scream nor shout for attention. Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense is hypnotic, it clings to the skin for hours on end, enticing anyone who as much as catches a glimmer of its seductive notes. I must warn you now, that a, from the first application you will be hooked and b, be prepared to answer a million and one, questions in regards to your scent of choice when wearing Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense.
You can find the new and permanent Jo Malone Myrrh and Tonka Cologne Intense is available in both the original 100ml size - link, and the new and - super cute - slightly more affordable 50ml flanker - link.
