Jo Malone London Pomegranate Noir Cologne

I was a lucky girl a couple of months ago and had a 30ml bottle of Jo Malone London’s famous Pomegranate Noir Cologne from my husband.

Being a huge fan of patchouli it was a must have on my wishlist. The description of Pomegranate Noir is as follows:

“The sensuality of a daring red Dress. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. A dark enigmatic fragrance”

Gosh this is a strange perfume! Don’t get me wrong, I love this but I’m finding it very hard to describe. I’ve read so many reviews of this and they are all different so I think it’s not just me. For me, I get overwhelmingly patchouli with a whisper of the fruit. It’s strong and woody and glorious. I’d like to have more fruit in it, but I think this is just how it works with my skin because other reviewers get a lot of fruit.

It’s very dark and wintery and I really really love it, for the same reasons I love Clinique Aromatics, its rich and patchouli heavy. Because of this it certainly isn’t for everyone… patchouli haters beware! Oh I must add, theres more than a whisper of clove in there too…for some this maybe a little too…medicinal? I really like it though.

Try on your skin though, from what I can tell it’s different on everyone, and I think it’s probably unisex. Now…where did my husband go? *spray*

    I’ve been using JM for a good few years now and have tried most of their fragrances (although I switched to buying the body lotions as I find they last longer).

    I love patchouli, but I really couldn’t get on with Pomegranate Noir. A friend of mine gave it to me when she bought it by mistake, I think I was a little disappointed to discover there was so little fruit coming through and way too much clove. I had to pass it on too because I found it way too overpowering for me. Defintely more of an evening scent this one.
