Summer is really here and, oh boy, it’s hot. Really hot. Don’t linger with the airconditioning, embrace the unusually tropical climes with a new summer perfume that was born in the sultry jungle heat of Brazil and, ergo, is perfect for the warmer weather? Enter Jo Malone London‘s new Tropical Cherimoya Cologne.
At the heart of the scent is the green cherimoya fruit, which Mark Twain once described as “the most delicious fruit known to men.” It tastes a bit like something in between a banana and a pineapple, and lends a fresh fruitiness to the scent, while top notes of juicy pear and passion flower keep things crisp. At the heart is warming Brazilian copahu resin and creamy tonka bean that ground it in a sophisticated finish.
“The inspiration came when I was travelling around Brazil,” said Celine Roux, Jo Malone London head of fragrance development. “We loved the flamboyant vibrancy of the flowers and the sumptuous textures of the fruits there, so we thought why not create two fragrances instead of one?”
And they did. The Tropical Cherimoya Cologne’s little sister is the Cattleya Flower Body Mist, the first ever Jo Malone London mist. Velvety cattleya flowers, often called the “Queen of Orchids”, sit at the heart of this refreshingly lightweight scent, while a blend of natural mandarin, orange, grapefruit and lemon fragrance oils offer a sparkling fresh citrus top note, balanced by the woody intensity of vetiver.
Together they make up the limited edition Hot Blossoms collection, a carnival of scents made for sizzling summer days, beachside cocktails and long, sultry evenings. The summer will last longer than these do, so be quick.
