A Day-To-Night Fragrance Duo With Incense Inspiration
By Marci Robin, Senior Online Editor |
We love the idea of having a signature scent, but many fragrances don't transition well from day to night. This is why we're fans of Jo Malone's new Kohdo Wood Collection, featuring a pair of unisex colognes designed to harmonize with dawn and dusk.
The daytime fragrance, Lotus Blossom & Water Lily, is light and fresh, and perfect for summer. In addition to its title notes, you can sense citrus-mandarin, grapefruit, bergamot-as well as uncommon components like bamboo and aloeswood, which is often used in incense. The blend is incredibly energetic yet peaceful.
Even more serene is the richer, more androgynous Dark Amber & Ginger Lily, ideal for nighttime. You'll notice black cardamom (from ginger seeds), orchid, and kyara wood, which also an incense staple.
The ceremony-inspired scents are beautiful independently, but they really thrive when you make the transition from day to night, layering Dark Amber & Ginger Lily atop what's left of Lotus Blossom & Water Lily for a unique scent that radiates differently from every wearer.
