Jo Malone London ‘Scarlet Poppy’ Cologne Intense
“From poppies in the golden fields of England to the wild steppes of Asia, home of the great scarlet poppy. This ravishing scent has been inspired by its extravagant blooms, and amplified by velvety iris. Barley and tonka bean add a double hit of sweet decadence while a burst of succulent fig draws us into this opulent and moreish fragrance. Available in an eye-catching red bottle.”

Jo Malone London ‘Scarlet Poppy’
My friends!!! I hope you are all well and handling lockdown 3 as well as possible. Personally, I’ve been feeling pretty flat if I’m honest, but I have also had some personal things going on at the moment too. Anyway… something that has lifted my spirits this year, and that’s the news that there is a new Jo Malone London perfume, ‘Scarlet Poppy’. I just wanted to let you know… it’s out now and I’m going to tell you everything I can about it… ok! Let’s go!!
This is not the first time Jo Malone have explored the humble Poppy before, they already have a poppy themed fragrance in the collection, Poppy & Barley, which I truly love! It’s one of my top 5 Jo Malone perfumes for it’s elegant florals, dominant rose accord and dry, earthy, wheat-y barley accords. It’s divine! With this new fragrance they have taken Poppy to a slightly more opulent, oriental place and combined it with ambrette, tonka bean, fig, iris and barley.
I haven’t tried this perfume myself yet, I’m hoping to order it very soon, but I have asked around and I’ve heard it’s delicious, exciting and a little sweeter than some of the other Cologne Intense fragrances. I also read the reviews of the fragrance which say it reminds them a little of Poppy & Barley and Dark Amber & Ginger Lily. I saw another review which said it’s a beautiful day-to-night fragrance which is wonderful when combined with Myrrh & Tonka – co-incidentally, three of my favourite Jo Malone Perfumes!! Once again, I’m SO sorry I haven’t tried this perfume yet, I promise I will do a full review soon, but for now, I just wanted to let you know it exists, it’s out now and that’s what people have said about it so far! I hope this post is of help, it’s not my usual style to do a blog post about a perfume I haven’t tried yet, but I really just wanted to let you know it’s out and share a few things I’ve heard about it so far!
Jo Malone London ‘Scarlet Poppy’ is out now and priced at £134 for a 100ml bottle. It is also available as a 50ml bottle which is priced at £86. This post contains affiliate links.
