JO MALONE LONDON HAVE LONG BEEN AT THE FOREFRONT OF LUXURY FRAGRANCES, AND ONE OF THEIR BIGGEST LAUNCHES OF THE YEAR IS ABOUT TO HIT THE SHELVES.
From Japanese foothills to China to the Himalayas, centuries of craftsmanship have been reinterpreted, bringing together the ancient art of the tea master and the ingenuity of the perfumer. The delicate way the tea leaves are infused straight into the scent make this a fragrance industry first. Highly anticipated, the Rare Teas Collection is devised of six unique colognes encased in an exclusive new bottle design.
Rare Teas Cologne 175ml, £ 240 each, coming soon.
SILVER NEEDLE TEA
A soft tea that is delicately floral, supple and velvety. It’s grown in the lush valleys of Fujian, China, and for centuries a delicacy reserved for the imperial family. The fragrance is enriched with opulent rose, tender with sage and enveloping with musk. A glistening, romantic rare tea infusion.
Darjeeling tea is richly floral with an exotic sweetness. It’s found high in the foothills of the Himalayas. Vibrant spring buds are grown on the steepest slopes among mountain mists. Luminous with jasmine and cool with freesia, this is a heady, sublime rare tea infusion fragrance.
JADE LEAF TEA
The smoothest of all the fine Japanese sencha teas. Bright new buds, grown in the cool sea breeze of the southern island of Kyushu are steamed to preserve their distinct green colour and flavour. Bracing with a note of pomelo and textured with sesame, the fragrance is crisp and invigorating.
The delectable Oolong Tea has a buttery softness. Grown in the rolling mountains of Fujian, China, it is handpicked, dried on bamboo and heated for a precious woody elegance. Withered, curled, twisted and perfectly formed. This fragrance is rich with bitter cocoa and almondy tonk a bean, earthy with hay and sweet with tobacco leaf.
MIDNIGHT BLACK TEA
Midnight Black Tea is deeply seductive and intrinsically exotic. The most precious puerh from China’s Yunnan province, matured for a sensual intensity. The sun-drenched tea leaves grow ever more intoxicating with time. The fragrance has an oriental twist with vanilla absolute, and a smoky note with guaiac wood. A rich, alluring rare tea infusion.
GOLDEN NEEDLE TEA
Golden Needle Tea leaves notes of leather and spice in the air. The warm wooden interior of Chinese tea houses in the cloud-veiled mountains of Yunnan inspired this fragrance. Leaves are handpicked and withered to a deep, burning gold. Smooth with sandalwood and addictive with glowing benzoin resin, this fragrance is a dark, mysterious rare tea infusion.
