It’s taken me such a long time to review the Jo Malone Orris & Sandalwood Intense fragrance – just wasn’t really in the mood for something I thought would be spicy and heavy. Yes, you guessed it – WRONG! But, it is weird. I can’t think of any other word but earthy; orris is actually the root of the Iris plant and it kind of does smell bulby a bit.. and to my nose, more woody than floral.
Which I think will be a great relief if you aren’t particularly a fan of florals. Actually, you are rather stuck if you don’t like florals in your fragrance. For my personal taste, it’s not one for me but it’s definitely worth a spritz if you’re passing a Jo Malone counter and are looking for something unusual and out of the norm. There is a creaminess to it and some powder and it mellows more into a peppery flower the longer it stays on the skin, but it’s definitely not a traditional floral fragrance in any sense.
Jo Malone Orris & Sandalwood is £105 (I know.. how did this happen?) HERE but I think it’s one that needs to be tried out first and not a blind buy.
