Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Review

I can remember one day when I was sat at my desk at work, one of my colleagues who I happened to strongly dislike walked past me and I could not deny that she smelt fucking incredible. I didn’t want to ask her what perfume she was wearing because I didn’t want to give her the satisfaction of knowing that I liked it. So instead, I just scowled at her from a distance and stayed quiet. Then, one day I was meandering around House of Fraser like I do so often, and I smelt the same fragrance wafting at me from the stunning Jo Malone stand and I just happened to float on over to it.

I had never been to a Jo Malone stand or shop and I was hypnotised almost immediately by how incredible it all was. I had heard of Jo Malone before and I did want to try out some things by the brand, I just wasn’t sure where to start. As I made my way over to the stand the happiest looking Jo Malone assistant came up to me and took me under her wing.  I have to admit that the whole experience of sitting down with a sales assistant really was lovely because she talked me through all of the different scents and let me know what works well together and helped me pinpoint the scent that I was after. I know that she was obviously hankering for my money for her commission, but she made it a really lovely experience!

After sitting down at the counter for around 30 minutes with this woman, I ended up just walking away with one perfume and that was the beautiful Pomegranate Noir. There were many more scents that I wanted to try out, but I thought that I would just buy the one to start with and after seeing how it wears and lasts on my skin, I would go back and treat myself to the others. But, for the time being, I am very happy with just the one because I have been loving it recently.

The thing with me is that I am not a very girly girl and I am not really a fan of sweet smelling scents. I am the kind of girl that would rather opt for a man’s aftershave then wear something that is floral and sugary in smell. I think that is why I am so obsessed with this Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir perfume. This is a very deep scent, which I know is like Marmite to some people and they will either love it or hate it. This is a very musky smell with deep floral undertones to it, which I think is a very sexy kind of scent. I will even admit that I have been reaching for this more than my Chanel No5 recently, which is another rich kind of scent.

Whenever I wear this Jo Malone perfume, I get so many compliments about it and how lovely I smell. This is a very intense fragrance and I find that a little goes a very long way. This can be quite overbearing if you go in a little too heavy with it, so I think that a light spritz of this stuff is more than enough. As many compliments as I get on this, there are also some that are very unsure of the scent. My mum tried out this perfume and she thought that it was far too rich for her to wear, but she loves how it smells and wears on me (or at least she says she does)!

I think that the staying powder of this fragrance is just incredible. I can apply this first thing at 8am in the morning before I head off to work and I can still smell it throughout the day. I will say that it does get ever so lighter throughout the day, but I feel that it wears very beautifully. This can easily see me through a day at work and can easily manage a night out with my friends. I really do find that the name of this perfume matches the scent exactly, it really does ring true as Pomegranate Noir!

I would honestly recommend this perfume to everybody excuse I am in love with the scent. Even if you want to find something that suits you, I would highly recommend going to a Jo Malone stand or into a store and they will work out the scents that work well for you and you go through so much. I find myself reaching for this all of the time and I cannot wait to go back and treat myself to some more so that I can wear them together and create a really bespoke perfume for myself. As a side note, they also do the best packaging that looks so damn pretty!

I will leave a link to this foundation down below in case you want to try it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know if you have tried this perfume out for yourself and let me know what some of your favourite scents are and I will be sure to check them out!
