Jo Malone London Valentine’s Scent Pairing: Scarlet Poppy with Poppy & Barley Cologne

Jo Malone London announce their latest scent addition, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Joining the chic Cologne Intense collection, Scarlet Poppy is a rich floral number inspired by the exotic and extravagant great scarlet poppy. Presented in a stunning red-hued bottle to match its bold and vibrant inspiration, this Valentine’s Day gift will be sure to delight her or him. Available in 50ml (£86) and 100ml (£134) sizes, notes combine ambrette, scarlet poppy and tonka bean. An alternative, and equally amorous, floral fragrance- almond, vanilla and tobacco add in seductive layers.

And as Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love pairings, we’re told Poppy & Barley Cologne (£50 for 30ml) is Scarlet Poppy’s best match. Sweet, sunny, floral and decadent, the blend encompasses rose, violet and blackcurrant alongside poppy, bran and barley. A deeply unique scent, it’s a winning, mood-lifting wonder which will also make you think of England’s poppy meadows. And for us, we see it as splashes of carefree sunshine, to elevate our everyday style and scent wardrobe. The refreshing sweetness has an awakening tang, softened by smooth light tones to create an indulgent, long-lasting  blend. A welcome elegance and joy right now, Poppy & Barley has recently become one of my top JML scents.

Aware of the challenging circumstances affecting cupid currently, Jo Malone are also offering extra special touches for your romantic gestures. You can record a video message to accompany your gift and be delivered together, or engrave your Cologne, Candle or Bath Oil with a personal note, a special date or your love’s initials.

The ultimate Valentine’s Day scent offerings, other stand out buys for a date evening from home, include their Miniature Candle collection (£62) including Grapefruit, English Pear & Freesia, Peony & Blush Suede, Nectarine Blossom & Honey and Pomegranate Noir. And anything from the Red Roses collection – be it the Cologne, Bath Oil or Diffuser- is a timeless buy, set to promise iconic scent.

We know what’s on our Valentine’s Day wishlist.
