The master of grown-up sophisticated scents, Jo Malone release Orris Sandalwood.
Fresh into the new year, Jo Malone have released a new fragrance into their already abundant collection. Their violet, sandalwood and orris concoction is a deep floral scent, centred in the orris, the root of the iris flower.
“We wanted to work with orris because it’s an extremely precious ingredient in perfumery. Orris is the root of the iris plant and it has been harvested in Tuscany for centuries, originally by monks,” explains Jo Malone’s Master Perfumer, Pierre Négrin. “This scent was about framing the orris to bring out its unique duality; it is both woody and powdery, floral and deep. We achieved this by using other woods as well as painting a picture of the iris flower itself.”
Looking to add a new fragrance that will fit into your own set? Fans of Mimosa and Cardamom can combine with Sandalwood and Orris to highlight the warmth of the sandalwood. Dark Amber and Ginger Lily devotees can pair up with the new addition to bring out the floral scent in Sandalwood and Orris against the deep amber. Dreamy on every whiff.
