A Winter Obsession.
I don’t know when this obsession came about, I seem to have avoided the Pomegranate Noir hype for some time – I think perhaps it was a seasonal thing, as I’ve had the candle burning for a few months and although it was enjoyable, I never really fell in love until recently. Right when my candle was coming to an end, actually. Fancy that. Since then, I’ve been hooked on the scent, like most Jo Malone fans it seems…
My latest love is this beautiful, heavenly scented Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Bath Oil (From £17), a gorgeous glass bottle with the typical monochrome packaging, finished off with the signature black bow. I instantly went all heart-eyed as soon as I saw it – it’s just a treat for the eyes. And the nose. Heck, even my skin gets some TLC from this stuff. I tipped a little in my bath last night, for the very first time, and instantly I was soothed and relaxed. The musky, floral fumes floated up and around my entire bathroom – it was truly delicious. I could still smell the scent in my bathroom when I went in this morning, it was just divine.
For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of giving the Pomegranate Noir scent a whiff, I’ll try and explain it as best as I can – it’s quite a crisp, light fruity scent but with this really sophisticated, musky edge. I wasn’t really a fan throughout summer but as soon as the colder weather hit (sometime in June, ha ha) I was just in love. It definitely is a very winter appropriate fragrance, there’s hints of pomegranate, raspberry, plum and pink pepper – it’s just incredible, almost edible!
The bath oil, as well as providing a wash of the most gorgeous scent, creates a small amount of bubbles when poured in to the running water and it smoothes and softens the skin for some much needed nourishment too. It’s a lovely treat, or perhaps a gift if you have the willpower!
2015 will see me own the entire Pomegranate Noir collection, just you wait…
