Rock of Ages Limited Edition by Jo Malone

Jo-Malone-Rock-the-Ages-collection-spring-2015The latest limited edition by Jo Malone called Rock the Ages, is intended to capture five periods in British history, Tudor, Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, and modern. This collection of fragrances is scheduled to be released in March. I was at Neiman Marcus this past Saturday, where they had them up front and center, ready to experience. I found each of these quaintly-inspiring and certainly worthy of sampling. One in particular, Pomegranate Noir, has been a favorite of mine for years. This edition is decorated a little differently with period appropriate trims adorning each of the caps to the bottles. The Rock the Ages collection is offered in 30 ml bottles for $65. Because they are a limited edition, you’d better get them while you can.

Tudor Rose & Amber (1485-1603)
Notes: Clove, Rose absolute, Amber, Ginger
The heraldic Tudor rose, still used today as a royal symbol of England. Blended with opulent rose absolute, clove and ginger, to reinforce the spiced facet. Golden amber wraps the fragrance in warm sensuality. Rich, sumptuous.

Lily of the Valley & Ivy (1714-1830)
Notes: Black currant, Green ivy, Lily of the valley, Narcissus
Reminiscent of the pastel gentility of Georgian London. Sparkling cassis and green ivy open the fragrance while the dewy delicacy of lily of the valley and decadent narcissus add a lavish heart. Captivating, ethereal.

Pomegranate Noir (1837-1901)
Top Notes: Pomegranate, Raspberry, Plum, Rhubarb, Watermelon
Heart Notes: Clove, Gaiac wood, Jasmine, Lily of the valley, Opoponax, Pink pepper, Rose, Frankincense
Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Patchouli, Cedarwood
The Victorian era, a golden age embracing the English drama. Luscious and juicy pomegranate is layered with heady Casablanca lily and spiked with the cool spice, pink pepper. Sensual guaiacwood weaves through the scent. Dramatic, intense.

Geranium & Verbena (1901-1919)
Notes: Geranium, Verbena, Basil, Coumarin, Vetiver
The cool elegance of Edwardian summers. Aromatic verbena and basil are blended with refined and elegant geranium. Enveloped with coumarin and vetiver for a charismatic and unexpected scent. Clean, herbaceous.

Birch & Black Pepper (2015)
Notes: Black pepper, Birch, Cardamom, Gurjum
Britain today. A scent of contrasts. Black pepper and cardamom add a cool spiciness, layered with smoky birch. An accord of magnetic ink juxtaposed with the smooth warmth of gurjum. A surprising, sensual scent. Individual, audacious, stylish.

    The bottle designs are great but the smells unremarkable. I only liked Tudor Rose and then not enough to buy it.

      I liked the way they decorated the caps for this edition. Very clever. I really enjoyed Geranium & Verbena.
