I make no apologies for being a fan of Jo Malone’s Cologne Intense collection. They make their difference first known in being clad in dark, mysterious black glass marking them out as the broody and intense section of Jo Malone’s otherwise all-friendly, all-English range. These are the faintly tinged foreign interlopers with a sense of Machiavellian cunning and seductive intent. They’re the enigmatic black sheep of the Jo Malone family.
Saffron is a sweet sucker punch of incense, saffron and sexy blond wood that swoons with sophistication. The golden saffron is spiced up with pink pepper and the heat of incense all set against the creamy warmth of pale woodiness.
Jo Malone’s Saffron is available from Jo Malone stores & online from June 2013 priced at £100 for 100ml
