Jo Malone The Bloomsbury Set

"Inspired by the free spirited artists of the Bloomsbury set, a collection of scents capturing the intoxicating essence of an unconventional life in their legendary country house in Sussex. The lily pond at dawn, bold blue hyacinth, absinthe afternoons and golden linseed on paint-stained hands. Warming whisky and sweet pipe tobacco. The secrets of waxed floors burnished by footsteps in the night." --jomalone.com

The striking green facets of anise-tinged absinthe blend with aromatic artemesia, soft orriswood and the deep richness of leather enhanced by the amber woody notes of Cypriol.

Whiskey & Cedarwood
Striking with a spicy peppery edge, pimento opens the fragrance with carnal warmth, while an irresistibly complex oriental accord with an enigmatic blend of sweet woody notes recreates the dignified impression of a fine whisky. Cedarwood, with its woody, dry character, imbues the base with charismatic intensity. Inspired by the free-spirited artists of the legendary Bloomsbury group - writers, philosophers and intellectuals, most notable among them Virginia Woolf - this collection of scents captures the intoxicating essence of an unconventional life in their legendary country house in the Bloomsbury area. The lily pond at dawn, bold blue hyacinth, absinthe afternoons and golden linseed on paint-stained hands. Warming whisky and sweet pipe tobacco. The secrets of waxed floors burnished by footsteps in the night. Each bottle in the collection is hand painted.
Perfume notes -- Pimento, whisky, cedarwood

Fragrance Files - Popping Bottles
From the heady aroma to the mood-altering effects, a beautiful perfume has a lot in common with a great wine - just ask a sommelier. Divinely scented and crafted by trained specialists, perfumes can be sophisticated blends of distinguished provenance or simpler mixtures in flashy glass bottles that tell a story. Likewise, the same could be said of a wine. We asked Sarah Clarke, general manager of Osteria Mozza and beverage director for Mozza Restaurant Group in Los Angeles, to test out some new perfumes, giving us her first impressions (before she knew the notes used in the blend), and then a wine pairing and review after we gave her more details on the scents.

Jo Malone The Bloomsbury Set Leather & Artemesia ($70 for 1 oz., jomalone.com)
FIRST IMPRESSION: "It smells of leather, and there's this amber - and earth and musk."
FRAGRANCE NOTES: An anise-tinged blend of herbal artemesia, soft orriswood, and leather.
WINE EQUIVALENT: "Red Bordeaux are known for leather and earth. There's a region in Bordeaux called Graves - which gets its name from the gravel in the subsoil - and this perfume has that same kind of stony quality."
SOMMELIER VERDICT: "This was my personaly favorite. I would totally wear it, but I can't at work because then everyone would be smelling my perfume and not their wine."

Beautiful Perfumes are Like Wine:
