As a fragrance junkie, I am always super excited when a new fragrance enters the market. Iconic fragrance brand Jo Malone has just released two enchanting new scents: English Oak and Redcurrant* and English Oak and Hazelnut*.
According to Master Perfumer Yann Vasnier, “Oak is a beautiful, noble wood. It’s powerful and iconic. In perfumery you often find sandalwood and cedarwood, but Oak has something unique. It’s majestic and mysterious.”
I have to say, I 100% agree with Mr Vasnier! These two fragrances are both super unique and unlike anything else out there.
English Oak and Redcurrant is the fruitier fragrance out of the two with a top note of Redcurrant, heart of Rose and base of Roasted Oak Absolute. I find this fragrance also lighter and sweeter making it perfect for Springtime. This fragrance comes in various sizes, a body creme, body and hand wash and as a candle.
English Oak and Hazelnut is a spicy wood and smells slightly more masculine. It has a top note of Green Hazlenut, a heart of Cedarwood and a base of Roasted Oak Absolute. As this fragrance is heavier I think it would be lovely for the evening and the cooler months. This fragrance comes only as a cologne.
If you are a Jo Malone fan I would love to hear your top fragrance picks from the range!
