Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud

I love to try out different scents and I think the perfect time to have a new fragrance is for a special occasion. That way you will always be reminded of those good memories when you spritz. I had been sniffing and spritzing Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud for a while every time I passed the counter. The night before my graduation my awesome parents surprised me with a bottle to wear the next day.

It’s a unique scent in that I can’t think of anything similar I’ve tried before. I smell the rose first and then the oud which I would describe as quite dark and mysterious. Can a perfume be mysterious…? I think so. Once the fragrance has settled on the skin it’s deep and warm but also rosy and floral. I feel like my nose has been attached to my wrist so I get a good whiff whilst I try to describe it to you.

This scent is my new staple and I’d recommend you have a lil sniff next time you’re at a counter. I haven’t quite decided yet if it’s on par with my two all time favourites, pomegranate noir and peony & blush suede, but it’s definitely up there.
