Although I decided not to publish what I got for Christmas, I couldn’t miss including the beautiful Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne and Candle review. I’ve had the cologne and candle on my Pinterest wish list for a while and was lucky enough to receive both as presents from my family this Christmas! After using them both for a couple of weeks, I thought I’d give you my thoughts.
Jo Malone velvet rose & oud cologne intense / £105 per 100ml
If you’ve ever purchased or been lucky enough to be gifted a Jo Malone perfume, you’ll know that the packaging just oozes luxury. The cologne intense range just seems even more luxurious, especially due to the black and silver packaging.
It’s not surprising that the scent is beautiful, I mean Jo Malone scents never seem to disappoint. Velvet rose & out is rich, sultry, sweet, with smoky undertones. If you are thinking, but I don’t like the smell of roses, well nor do I. I’m so bad at explaining scents, but I feel like this scent embodies everything I’ve ever wanted in a perfume. I’m so in love with it. Although it is quite a heavy scent, I will be saving this for special occasions as the scent lingers for hours. If you want to find out more about the scent, have a look on the Jo Malone page. It’s just so sophisticated and mysterious, I would highly recommend you go and smell this!
Jo Malone Velvet rose & oud scented candle / £50
Ok ok, I’m not going to continue banging on about how amazing the velvet rose & oud scent is. But burning the candle for less than an hour and the surrounding rooms are filled with the most beautiful scent. My boyfriend even commented on how amazing the house smelt after burning it. Again, the packaging is so lovely and makes a great desk or shelf accessory. I mean look at the little bow on the candle lid, *insert heart eyes emoji*. I know you’re probably thinking £50 for a candle, are you crazy? Well yes, I may be crazy, but this candle is not to be missed.
These two presents have just made me fall even more in love with Jo Malone as a brand. Her products are luxurious and long lasting. Although they are crazy expensive, these little beauties would be great presents for any deserving person. I’ve certainly got my eye on a couple of other scents. Have you ever tried any Jo Malone products? What would you recommend I add to my list?
