Jo Malone’s NEW Saffron Collection

by Katie on June 2, 2013

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.

Such beauties as Iris & White Musk, Velvet Rose & Oud and Amber & Patchouli have formed a wave of fans who may skirt with Jo Malone but see these as the hidden treasure. And now, another new fragrance is being added to the Cologne Intense fold, Saffron.

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.

Whatsmore, like the others, Saffron makes the play for both male and female affections and is omnisexual in its deep, dark saffron heart.

Heavy as desire and as deep as malintent, Saffron is an instant swipe of blatant sexuality. To add a layer of brisk vibrancy and to cool things a little, I sprayed atop Jo Malone’s Blackberry & Bay, which instantly transformed Saffron into a more acceptable day version with less tour-de-force yet still with a piquant attraction. 

Jo Malone’s Saffron is available from Jo Malone stores & online from June 2013 priced at £100 for 100ml
