Jo Malone Rose Water and Vanilla Cologne Intense
They have recently brought Jo Malone to Norwich which is very exciting for me as i only normally get the chance to have a whiff in London so i was like a kid in a candy store when it opened yesterday! I have to say i love every scent but Pomegranate Noir has to be my all time favourite but i desperately wanted to have a good feel for all of the lovely fragrances. First impressions were the shop looked amazing, the merchandising of a Jo Malone store is second to none and all of the staff are just lovely!
As i was having a good sniff around a stumbled across the Rose Water and Vanilla Cologne Intense (which is basically just a stronger, slightly more expensive version of their already incredible fragrances), This has me straight away, the only way i can describe it is i think it smells of the cupcake dolls you used to be able to get when i was young (i am probably showing my age here) so when ever i smelt it i thought of cakes.
I guess not everyone wants to smell of cakes but it's a lovely sweet vanilla smell that just stayed on my skin for ages, another great thing about Jo Malone as a brand is they are not pushy to make a sale, they give you all of the information needed and even tell you to go away and keep smelling it through the day and see what you think which i love!
Needless to say of course this was purchased, it retails at £100 and only comes in the bigger size of 100ml, you can check it out HERE i know it's slightly pricey but you only need a couple of squirts and this is definitely going to be a special occasion fragrance for me and it looks so pretty sitting on my dressing table :-)
