About this deal

The cedarwood here is a straight Iso E Super molecule found in other superstar fragrances such as Escentric Molecules 01, and Dior Homme 2020. In the heart notes, the fragrance reveals more woody nuances with oud being the most prominent accord. I say accord since the oud found in this fragrance is not natural, no matter what Jo Malone sales associates are trying to tell you. Jo Malone is a perfume label that actually creates very beautiful fragrances, but where there is ONE big problem... You could wear this fragrance basically anywhere and anytime. I feel that due to weaker performance, work, and casual settings work best during the milder seasons of the year.

It is also a safe blind buy for almost anyone who is just starting to get into the oud game and a nice twist since it’s one of the rare oud-based fragrances you could actually pull off in the summer. It reminds me a little bit of a pencil smell... a pencil that you just sharpened! Do you know what I mean? :) xD

Don’t expect any comments or compliments beyond the first hour of wearing this scent since no one will be able to smell you. Not a bad thing for fragrance-sensitive work environments and fragrance lovers who like softer perfumes. Also known as agarwood, oud is produced when the mould phialophora parasitica infects the aquilaria (or agar) tree to produce a dark, fragrant resin that essentially works as the tree's defence mechanism. Oud ranks highly as one of the world's most expensive raw materials as it takes hundreds of years to produce the resin. Plus, the aqularia tree is fast depleting due to over-harvesting and habitat loss. Where do perfume houses source oud? The bottle is a nice rectangular shaped bottle in a dark glass colour. There’s silver branding to the front, with the brand name as well as the name of the scent.

Jo Malone Oud & Bergamot is a fragrance from the Cologne Intense line which currently consists of one Oud & Bergamot flanker: Now, the meat and potatoes of the fragrance, and the main question, is this fragrance for you? As a serious fragrance enthusiast, and hobbyist, I have to say that this one left much to be desired in the performance section. There are some 'bases' that perfume houses make which approximate the smell of oud, and contain a blend of synthetic and natural ingredients - important to capture the complexity of oud itself," says Gilbert. Due to the high cost and rarity of natural oud oil, perfumeries often use the smallest percentage in conjunction with other ingredients such as cypriol or patchouli. What does oud smell like?J o Malone Oud & Bergamot Cologne Intense is a citrus woody fragrance for men and women. Perfumer Christine Nagel created the fragrance in 2010 as a part of the Cologne Intense line. Jo Malone high-end niche fragrance house is still quite a mystery to me since I’ve only tried a few other fragrances from the line.

The Estée Lauder Companies acquired the company in 1999 for an undisclosed amount. Malone continued to work for the brand as creative director until 2006, after which she founded Jo Loves in 2012. It’s an older fragrance, but Jo Malone Oud and Bergamot Cologne Intense is a scent which smells really nice. A note from the brand: “Precious oud, reframed. The mysterious, smoky character of this revered wood, central to Middle Eastern fragrance traditions, radiates with the clarity of crisp bergamot and orange. Hypnotic. Alluring.” Notes and ClassificationWhile the truth is always somewhere in the middle, let’s not forget that Jo Malone is a great storyteller, a well-accomplished perfumer that had to shed sweat and tears before selling Jo Malone company to The Estée Lauder Companies in 1999. The fragrance has a masculine touch and the oud is very pleasant and not pungent, biting! It gives a slight freshness when sprayed, but this should not be confused with a "freshly showered" fresh. Rather something slightly noble...a little sweet but only a little bit!

The general concept of the house is to offer simpler perfumes with mostly natural ingredients with light performance and to make them easily mixed and layered with other fragrances from Jo Malone. Longevity – Jo Malone Oud And Bergamot is an intense cologne and the longevity is poor. Expect to get around 2 hours from this. Jo Malone Oud And Bergamot is described as “cologne intense”. If you’ve read my fragrance strength & concentrations post you’ll know about the differences in fragrance types. In the fragrance community, Jo Malone as a whole rarely comes nowhere near the top 10 niche fragrance brands.

Designer perfumes are a wonderful thing – but let’s be honest, they don’t come cheap. So it’s not surprising that Aldi perfume dupes have become some of the most popular products in the supermarket’s surprisingly vast All in all, the presentation is nice, but nothing special you’ll go crazy about.
