Jo Malone is launching a brand new scent next month and it sounds delicious

Jo Malone

Jo Malone’s new scent has been described as their ‘most special’ launch this year, EEEEK.

The brand has an astronomical following and everyone one has a favourite perfume, candle, and/or shower gel that they repurchase time and time again.

However, despite the fact that we all have a ‘go-to’ favourite, a new scent always gets our attention and the latest one sounds all kinds of delicious.

Poppy & Barley is available from September 1 and after smelling the delicious floral newbie, we know it’s going to be another best-seller.

Described as a ‘lively’ scent, rose, violet and blackcurrant also feature here and it sounds like the perfect perfume to transition from autumn to winter.

A warm and inviting fragrance is essential as the cold mornings and dark evenings make a return and your light summer perfume takes a back seat.

Speaking about the new scent, perfumer Mathilde Bijaoui explained:

“Poppy & Barley has an element of the unexpected and unusual – a contrast between the vibrant poppies and the nourishing grains, rounded by hints of violet and fig. It was an exciting creative challenge and new territory for me – exploring the potential of the ingredients and their combination”.

Jo Malone scents are designed to be layered and they have recommended three to pair with Poppy & Barley.

Try it with Honeysuckle & Davana for a vibrant floral combination, with Wood Sage & Sea Salt for a colourful scent with a mineral freshness or with Myrrh & Tonka for an addictive combination with added opulence and warmth (trying this one asap).

The 30ml cologne is priced at €54, the 100ml cologne at €109 and the 250ml Body & Hand Wash at €35.
