Jo Malone London's Spring Launch Will Make You Want To Smell Like Weeds, Seriously
If you're already sick of the dark and cold weather you'll probably be dreaming of spring already. Enter Jo Malone London's Wild Flowers & Weeds which launches in March 2019. The limited edition collection of five spring scents is inspired by an idealistic take on the untamed weeds and wild flowers that grow up and tangle around the banks of a river.
And it's exactly the kind of evocative launch you'd expect from the brand behind cult fragrances like Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir and Wood Sage & Sea Salt colognes.
Just like plants growing in the Great British countryside, these scents are natural and surprising - think stinging nettles, fields of bright flowers and plants poking up through cracks in the pavement. It's beautiful but it isn't always what you were expecting.
The collection includes five groundbreaking colognes.
Nettle & Wild Achillea - fresh, sparkling top notes paired with a cashmere-soft base:
"The tangy sting of nettle, peeking through pavement cracks and entwined with wild, white achillea flower. Sparkling with bright bergamot, the greenness softened by a soft base of white musk."
Willow & Amber - Woody, smoky and sensual:
"The expressive weeping willow, gently draping across the fresh morning water. Captured in the woody pairing of cashmere wood and smoky vetiver, enhanced by softly sensual amber."
Cade & Cedarwood - Warm and sexy:
"The smouldering embers of a wood-burning stove at nightfall. Basking in the warm and comforting glow of cade - its smoky scent mingled with cedarwood and complemented by a mouth-watering hint of sensual vanilla."
Hemlock & Bergamot - Fresh and green with a softened edge:
"Hemlock's powdery petals, brightened with bergamot. A deadly, yet unexpectedly-delicate flower. Illuminated with golden mimosa and a floral flourish of heliotrope. Crisp and modern with a bite of cucumber."
Lupin & Patchouli - Floral, juicy and heady:
"Reminiscent of canal banks, awash with colour. A rainbow of lupin flowers, enriched by luxurious rose and deepened with rebellious patchouli. A surprising contrast with the fresh vibrancy of mandarin."
The 30ml bottles are painted with illustrations of each scent's key ingredients of each fragrance - we'd forgive you for wanting to keep them all. You'll also get a matching keepsake tin when you buy two or more colognes from the collection.
Jo Malone London's Wild Flowers & Weeds is available from March 2019. Each 30ml cologne RRP £49.
