Orris & Sandalwood by Jo Malone London is a Oriental Woody fragrance for women and men.
Orris & Sandalwood was launched in 2016.
The fragrance features violet, galbanum, geranium, orris, cyperus esculentus, labdanum, amber and musk.
Orris & Sandalwood was born through a working collaboration between Fragrance Director Céline Roux and Master Perfumer, Pierre Negrin.
Céline, can you introduce us to this new Cologne Intense?
For Cologne Intense we have always focussed on rich and precious ingredients. These have included resins and woods like oud and incense, as well as florals like rose and tuberose. We felt that the woody and powdery qualities of iris were missing from the collection, so we decided to focus on the very special Iris pallida, grown and harvested in Tuscany.
Why did you decide to work with Pierre on this scent?
Pierre has a history with Jo Malone London having created White Jasmine & Mint with us 8 years ago but he also has expertise in deeper woody fragrances which are richer and more intense so we immediately thought of him for this scent.
