If you haven’t yet discovered the contemporary “layering” trend in men’s fragrances you’re denying yourself the opportunity to tailor your own bespoke scent – or scents for that matter.

However this advanced-level scent technique isn’t merely spritzing a mix of your usual EDT’s – you need to be mindful of the ingredients you’re combining – much like when creating fine cuisine.

Fortunately Jo Malone has simplified the idea with their fragrance combining concept, whereby select fragrances from their range can be paired together, allowing you to express your individuality.

The newest addition to the diverse (and delicious) Cologne Intense collection is Myrrh & Tonka. Rich, hand-harvested sap of the Namibian myrrh tree mingles with the lush almond and vanilla notes of tonka bean. The scent is deep and warm and vaguely familiar. Like that of an African sunset.
