Jo Malone launches Tea Fragrance Blends Collection

You all know I love my Jo Malone perfume - English Pear and Freesia so it will not come as any surprise to you that I am really excited to learn about their latest perfumes launch...

Tea Fragrance Blends Collection









This is a limited edition collection inspired by the quintessentially British tradition of High Tea. This sounds like it was developed for me in mind :-)

Available in five fragrances and just as there’s a tea to suit every taste and disposition, there’s a Tea Cologne for every style and mood. Every scent is a contemporary classic, fusing understated luxury with an air of English eccentricity. And of course, just like our idiosyncrasies of taking tea, the Tea Fragrance Blends perfectly lend themselves to being personalised with Jo Malone’s unique philosophy of Fragrance Combining™.  In true British style, the collection allows you to combine your Tea Fragrance Blend, with a dash of Sweet Lemon or a splash of Sweet Milk. 

Assam & Grapefruit Cologne 

Invigorating and upbeat, Assam & Grapefruit captures the qualities of that first cup of morning tea. 
Refreshing grapefruit and herbaceous Assam are blended with undertones of warm patchouli, spicy 
cardamom and almond. 
  
Fragrance Combining Suggestion  
Add a creamy richness with a splash of Sweet Milk to deepen and sweeten the scent of black tea.

Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne 
A playful twist on the British tradition of high tea, cucumber sandwiches served with Earl Grey, distilled 
into a modern, intriguing scent.  Fresh and fruity bergamot is cooled with cucumber and warmed with a base of beeswax, vanilla and musk.

Fragrance Combining Suggestion  
Refresh and uplift by layering with zesty Sweet Lemon.

Fresh Mint Leaf Cologne 
A refreshing tisane of freshly picked mint, translated into a crisp, clear cologne. A blend of mint, basil 
and maté infuses this cologne with a green, leafy clarity, while a warm base is created by the partnership of cedarwood with musk.

Fragrance Combining Suggestion  
Think pretty and fresh by adding a mist of zesty, fruit infused Sweet Lemon.
Sweet Lemon Cologne 
Mirroring the custom of adding a slice of freshly cut lemon or a sprinkle of sugar to a cup of just brewed tea, Sweet Lemon is given a fruity twist with pineapple, peach and fresh green cypress.

Sweet Milk Cologne 
Utterly English, a dash of sweet, creamy milk gives tea a rounded richness. The unique milk accord combines star anise, almond and vanilla to create a warm, comforting scent. Addictively sweet and unexpectedly fresh. 

I am really tempted by these, I love the concept of adding milk or lemon to your 'tea' and cannot wait to visit Jo Malone to try them out 

The Tea Fragrance Blends are available from March 2011 

And I leave you with the words of Jo Malone's Global General Manager Dominic De Vetta -  

"At present celebrating tradition is at the forefront of fashion, hence the English ritual of taking tea feels contemporary again."
