Jo Malone – English Oak Redcurrant & Hazelnut Colognes
It’s inevitable the end of summer is nearly here. Sigh. Even though everyone might be looking forward to the cooler months and swapping out their capsule fall/autumn wardrobes, for layers and cosy jumpers I always feel slightly sad around August that there are only a few days of hot sunshine remaining.On the plus side, many brands announce new products around this time of year. Jo Malone London has introduced two new colognes which will fit right into next season. I was gifted and had the opportunity to preview and try out The English Oak and Redcurrant (Bright Embracing, Bewitching) and the English Oak and Hazelnut (Earthy Enticing Enchanting) before they are launched in September.Even though both fragrances have the same base notes of oak, I can see a lot of women or men lean more towards the redcurrant as it has the best of worlds of woody and sweet. Mixing cedarwood and rose in the mix makes two very distinctive and unusual colognes for Jo Malone. I also like the hazelnut as this is very smoky and if you like that fresh polished wood smell, this is the one for you.
If you compare a similar fragrance to English Oak Redcurrant on the market I would say if you like Diptyque’s Baies, redcurrant is slightly sweeter and fresher version.
