Jo Malone | Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Cologne Intense

Monday, 17 November 2014


When buying presents, I try to pick things that are so deliciously decadent that the receiver wouldn't normally buy for themselves. Recently I was lucky enough to receive just that, the Jo Malone Dark Amber & Ginger Lily fragrance as a present.






This is a sophisticated fragrance, which really reminds me of Tom Ford's black orchid. It is dark and woody without being heavy or headache inducing. This is my go to winter fragrance and I am constantly asked what perfume I am wearing whenever I have this on! Plus the super luxe bottle looks so gorgeous sitting on my dressing table. 

Fragrances really have the ability to lift your mood and this one does just that. The gentle hint of ginger leaves me feeling refreshed whilst the subtle lily gives that aah factor that we all look for in a fragrance.

 A good mood inducing fragrance is definitely what everyone needs...but is there anything that puts a girl in a better mood then the sight of the glorious Jo Malone packaging?! This is a definite Christmas list addition and worth heading over to your nearest Jo Malone to see what all the fuss is about!

  15. Ah, I have to get myself some Jo Malone perfume sometime! I remember smelling a few in a store a while ago, and they all smell great - I especially liked her orange blossom or jasmine one, I forgot which one it was exactly.

  18. I hate spicy scents so if this is slightly gingery i'm not sure if i'll like it, although i'm sure i'll give it a go :)

  26. I have one of the woodier type of scents (which I rarely use so I can't even remember the name of it) but I would love to try out the more fruity/floral scents. Everything about Jo Malone screams luxe to me x

  39. This sounds so gorgeous! A Jo Malone shop was recently built in my town and I'm yet to go in, but I'd really love to because that brand is so luxurious! I'm a big fan of musky and deep scents so will have to spritz this in store. I love the packaging too!
