Jo Malone | Pomegranate Noir
I have lusted after the Jo Malone fragrance and skin care line since I first stumbled upon it in the cosmetics dept. at Harrod's. This stuff is insanely expensive, especially in the UK -- but after our last visit, I decided that I could *just* afford to buy the fragrance, if I stuck to the 1 oz. size. So I got online (cheaper than buying overseas) and ordered myself a small bottle of the Lime Basil and Mandarin scent, which is fresh and citrusy and well suited to warm SoCal days. And I love it. But I get bored so easily... ...which is why I was intrigued when I got an email announcing their newest scent: Pomegranate Noir. It's richer -- darker -- and it complements the Lime Basil and Mandarin stuff I already have (one of Jo Malone's selling points is that you can create your own signature scent by mixing and matching pieces from the entire line -- so buying a second "flavor" essentially gives me THREE fragrances to choose from). And they all smell divine.
