If you've always wanted a long-lasting scent that doesn't overwhelm or require more than two generous spritzes, Jo Malone Cologne Intense is one collection to have in your fragrance arsenal. Inspired by the Middle East where fragrance is used ritualistically and multiple oils (attars) are layered onto the skin, Jo Malone London Creative Studio worked with Master Perfumers to reinvent the rich ingredients used in Middle East, thus creating the Cologne Intense in six rich scents. One new scent that Jo Malone has debuted is Orris & Sandalwood—a woody and floral combo of irises from Tuscan hillsides with creamy sandalwood and sensual amber. 

"We wanted to work with orris because it's an extremely precious ingredient in perfumery. Orris is the root of the iris plant and it has been harvested in Tuscany for centuries, originally by monks," says Master Perfumer, Pierre Négrin. 

And as the art of Jo Malone's fragrances go, blend Orris & Sandalwood with other scents to make them your own: combine it with Mimosa & Cardamom for a mesmerising, creamy scent, or layer it with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily for a rich, sensual floral amber notes. Jo Malone Cologne Intense works perfectly when combined with other fragrances as well. A favourite and highly recommended combination is Tuberose Angelica with Peony & Blush Suede for a luxurious, floral scent that's well-rounded.


Jo Malone Cologne Intense (RM585 for 100ml) is now available at all Jo Malone boutiques nationwide
