Best of Beauty | Princess Product

Jo Malone Pomegranate NoirToday’s Best of Beauty post (a series created by the lovely Samantha from All the Buzz) had me thinking long and hard for this past week. I tend to buy a lot of high end products and use them on a regular basis so I was trying to come up with something that is a princess-like splurge, even for me. And finally, after going through my beauty stash I came across this…

I present to you my ultimate indulgence, the Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne – very well loved, hence the low levels and battered label. I adore this fragrance, it has something quite unusual and heady, almost masculine, about it, it’s a very dark, sexy fragrance and whenever I wear it I get asked about my perfume. I am not amazing at describing scents but here is what Jo Malone say about Pomegranate Noir and I couldn’t agree more: ‘The sensuality of a daring red dress. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. A dark and enigmatic fragrance.’  Yes, dark and enigmatic… and sinfully expensive, considering it is not an eau de parfum and you have to spray it several times during the day to make the scent last.

I know, I could do a lot with €100 but this scent has me addicted and I keep re-purchasing it over and over. I find the entire experience of shopping in Jo Malone absolutely beautiful and luxurious – from the service to the packaging, Jo Malone shops are perfection. I am also very tempted to invest in a Jo Malone candle, but considering how expensive they are I will wait until I have a very good reason to reward myself.

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne costs €96 and available from Brown Thomas

    Ah, my go to night out perfume (well, my only night time perfume really) it’s too heady for day, but the smell is just divine. I would fill a pool with it and dive in if it weren’t so expensive!

    I’ve tested loads of these out but just ended up getting so confused when I tried to pick one, really shows you love it when you got through the whole bottle though!

    • http://pinkelephantbloggin.com/ pinkelephantbloggin.com

      It does :) and it isn’t my first bottle! I think this is the only fragrance I have purchased several times so far. But I know what you mean, it can be a bit confusing if you have 30 scents to choose from…

    Wow, that is pricey! I’ve never sniffed anything from Jo Malone I’m kind of afraid to now or I’ll want it!

    • http://pinkelephantbloggin.com/ pinkelephantbloggin.com

      Yeah, it’s incredibly expensive for cologne… If you are into fragrance Jo Malone are absolutely gorgeous… once you are sucked in there’s no turning back though ;)

    LOVE this perfume, got it for Christmas from my lovely husband. I could live in it :) Thinking of the Blackberry and Bay Leaf for Spring maybe

    • http://pinkelephantbloggin.com/ pinkelephantbloggin.com

      Yeah, the Blackberry and Bay Leaf is an absolutely gorgeous scent. I also have my eye on the Fig & Cassis scent (I LOVE anything fig scented!)

    The description of this sounds divine and right up my street. I’ve yet to smell Jo Malone anything and it’s on my wishlist for when I come home for a visit, but I’m a little afraid that there will be no turning back once I take that step ;o) Love Sheen xxx

      Yep, you are right, once you smell anything Jo Malone you will suddenly find start thinking €120 for a scented candle is not that bad :P no turning back!
