I have fond memories of visiting my paternal grandparents' house and smashing the pomegranate open from the tree in their backyard to eat those juicy seeds.
Pomegranate Noir is described on the Jo Malone site as:Inspired by the allure of a scarlet-coloured silk dress, Pomegranate Noir is an enigmatic scent.
Ancient pomegranate, raspberry and plum are crowned with precious frankincense and patchouli to create a mystery that unravels with time.
The pomegranate is straight up pomegranate juice on me that's sweetened with a cooked raspberry and plum - like a spiced chutney if you will. This is a rather dark fragrance. I don't get a lot of frankincense but what I do get a lot of is pine with a touch of patchouli and a hint of cedar.
I chose to wear this on Christmas eve and my parents just loved it on me, my Dad even mentioned that this was a fragrance that my grandmother (the original perfumista) would have loved.
This is absolutely perfect for colder weather and surprisingly it lasted all day on me! I love this fragrance! Full bottle worthy without a doubt for me! I adore it!
Many, many thanks to Trina
for so generously (as always) introducing me to this fabulous fragrance!
