Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone London (2005)

  1. odysseusm
    Notes: raspberry, plum, pomegranate, pink pepper, patchouli, frankincense, spicy woods.
    Those inquiring about Conehead scents for women would do well to check this out.
    I hadn’t thought I would like it. I assumed that it would be very berry/fruity. Although not bottle-worthy for me, I always find it intriguing. The scent has been called "enigmatic" and I agree.
    The fruit notes start as bright, pleasant, natural, juicy, and not at all faux-synthetic. Later, they become subtle, dry and complex. Spices tingle in the background. The patchouli emerges -- at times earthy-brown, at times metallic, at times tangy (all typical traits). The scent settles into a nice incense-wood vibe.

    i tried it because i thought it might have a "tang" to it, but it was too sweet for me

    I know what you are saying, scents or. For me it is intriguing but I haven't committed to a bottle (and am unlikely to do so). Still, every once in a while I dig out my sample vial and enjoy the experience.

    This is not a scent which might immediately occur to Coneheads. Yet, it has pink pepper and frankincense, plus spicy woods. It has been a while since I've tried it. What are my current thoughts? I normally don't check out fruit-laden scents (aside from citrus). First of all, this is not a sweet scent. The spices are quite quick to appear, against a backdrop of some fruit notes. Actually, the fruit is a rather minor element. In the dry-down, the spices combine with wood and some incense in a pleasing way.

    Thank you for posting your thoughts on this seldom talked about fragrance.

    I know someone who is super picky about fragrances and they adore this one. Their favorite fragrance ever. The price is sort of a deal breaker however for many.

    When I first sampled myself, I was apprehensive because reviews at the time made it out that this would be a very strong fragrance. One review even mentioned floor cleaner!
    However what I smelled was a well balanced, classic but contemporary scent with muted sweetness.

    I will have to sample some time again in the future. I did like how the spices combined with the wood in the dry down.
