City rain. The park at dawn, saturated with dew. Clean, revitalising. A light shower, falling gently on purple wisteria, infusing the air with petal-washed scent. An afternoon cloudburst, drenching gardens exuberant with summer blooms. And as dusk descends into night…the downpour. Liberating the darkness of cedarwood on deluged concrete.
After reading this description I couldn’t resist to go to the Jo Malone shop and try the new limited edition collection London Rain.
There are four to choose…
Wisteria & Violet Cologne; A soft morning shower, soaking purple wisteria cascading over London stone walls. Infused with the wet-petal scent of violets and water lily. Rain-washed and intoxicating.
Black Cedarwood & Juniper Cologne; Midnight rain. Seductive with the carnal touch of cumin and chilli leaves. Dark with cedarwood. Humid with moss. Modern and urban.
White Jasmine & Mint Cologne; An afternoon cloudburst, drenching gardens exuberant with jasmine, orange flower and rose. Eccentric with its dash of scrambling wild mint. Enchanting and refreshing.
Rain & Angelica Cologne; Glassy beads of dew, awakening a London park at dawn. A revitalising scent, enlivened with herbaceous angelica and juicy lime on an earthy base of vetiver. Aqueous and clear. My favourite! 🙂
