Jo Malone London Cologne Intense Body Creme: Velvet Rose & Oud

Jo Malone London has extended its Cologne Intense collection to include four indulgent new body creams... in weighty opaque black glass jars of pure decadence. Available in Velvet Rose & Oud, Dark Amber & Ginger Lily, Oud & Bergamot and Tuberose Angelica, the rich, sensual Cologne Intense fragrances pack more punch than the main collection.

I'm often drawn to body products as a softer way to wear heady scents like these and the Velvet Rose & Oud Body Creme lingers on my skin for hours. A definite evening fragrance in my book, the dark damask rose and smoky oud wood is balanced with touches of clove and praline. 

I am that woman who walks around sniffing her arms while wearing this... it's rather irresistible

I tend to restrict it to my upper body as it's so powerfully fragranced that I think of it as another way of wearing scent rather than 'just' a body cream. And I don't want to waste a drop. 

The consistency is a thick silky cream that leaves skin gleaming without a speck of shimmer, while feeling dry to the touch. Made with mineral rich samphire extract, it leaves my skin feeling soft and well moisturised.

While a definite luxe purchase, these are generously sized at 175ml and an absolute treat to use.

Jo Malone London Cologne Intense Body Creme is available now at Selfridges, John LewisJo Malone London or Bergdorf Goodman (US).
