Why This Jo Malone Fragrance Is One of My All-Time Favourites
If you've been following my blog and Instagram since the very beginning, you know that I'm a huge fragrance junkie. As a matter of fact, my fascination with fragrances has grown significantly over the years and as a result, my collection has become quite excessive. It's filled with a wide variety of fragrance variations and notes including: earthy, sweet, spicy, woody and everything in between. However, over the past two years I've been especially drawn to warmer scents with subtle floral notes and without a doubt my all-time favourite is Dark Amber & Ginger Lily by Jo Malone.
Dark Amber & Ginger Lily is unlike anything I've ever smelled before. It's a combination of Kyara wood (a rare ingredient that's 18 times more expensive than gold), incense, amber, black cardamom, ginger and water lily. It's spicy, warm and has hints of floral notes that make it incredibly unique and luxurious.
In addition to the scent, the formula of this fragrance is quite impressive as well. I find it lingers on my clothes for hours so all I need is two spritzes in the morning followed by one or two spritzes (max) in the afternoon. Also, considering this scent is part of Jo Malone's Cologne Intense Collection, I don't think the price tag is all that bad. For the 50ML bottle, which I often carry in my bag on a daily basis, it's $150 CAD. The 100ML version is $180 CAD, but I find the smaller size is perfect if you travel lots or if you're the type of person that likes to rotate your fragrances regularly.
Dark Amber & Ginger Lily is one of the most unique fragrances I've ever smelled, and because of this it has quickly become one of my all-time favourites! I've gone through several bottles to date and I know I'll probably go through several more. For more information on this scent or Jo Malone's Cologne Intense Collection, click here.
