Inspired by the proud history and eccentricity of Great Britain, the Jo Malone Rock The Ages range captures the atmosphere of some of the UK’s most defining eras. Each of the five colognes, which goes for $105, is a unique modern interpretation of the character and ambience of a facet of English society.
Tudor Rose & Amber
The dark grandeur of the Tudor rose is still used today as a royal symbol of England. This rich, sumptuous scent blends opulent rose absolute with clove and ginger, to reinforce the spiced elements, while golden amber gives it a warm sensuality.
Lily of the Valley & Ivy
Evoking the soft gentility of Georgian London, sparkling cassis and green ivy opens the ethereal fragrance while dewy lily of the valley and decadent narcissus gives it a lavish heart. (Nope, not the lily of the valley seen in Breaking Bad).
Representative of the Victorian era, a golden age of English drama, this intense scent has juicy pomegranate layered with heady Casablanca lily – spiked with cool pink pepper.
Geranium & Verbena
This captures the cool elegance of Edwardian summers. Think aromatic verbena and basil, blended with refined geranium and enveloped with coumarin and vetiver.
Birch & Black Pepper
A scent of contrasts, this shows Britain’s rebellious punk roots. Black pepper and cardamom give a cool spiciness, while smoky birch and magnetic ink accord gives it individuality.
