Jo Malone will launch a new limited-edition collection for spring 2015 entitled Rock the Ages which includes five perfumes: Tudor Rose & Amber, Lily of the Valley & Ivy, Pomegranate Noir, Geranium & Verbena and Birch & Black Pepper...
Tudor Rose & Amber is said to be a rich blend featuring an opulent rose absolute to symbolise the house of the Tudors, together with clove, ginger, and golden amber.
Lily of the Valley & Ivy is an impression of the pastel-colored garments worn by the London bourgeoisie during the Georgian era. Notes are an airy cassis, green ivy, delicate muguet and decadent narcissus.
Pomegranate Noir is part of the permanent collection. Here, it is seen as representing the Victorian era. The deep ruby red of the pomegranate fruit is mixed with heady Casablanca lily. Other notes are pink peppercorn and guaiac wood.
Geranium & Verbena is an ode to the restrained elegance of Edwardian summers, especially as displayed during garden parties. Notes are geranium, verbena, and basil.
Birch & Black Pepper is an olfactory essay on contemporary Great-Britain seen through the contrast of its rebellious punk roots against British tradition. Notes are black pepper, cardamom, an ink accord, and gurjum. The composition is said to be both "surprising and sensual."
The bottle caps are adorned with archetypal trimmings symbolizing each referenced period.
MSRP: 52€ for 30 ml.
Available from March 2015.
