Total Raw Food help get Raw Chocolate (aka Cacao) onto the High Street!!
THE New Jo Malone Blue Agava & Cacao Fragrance - The World of Jo Malone TM
Yey, my first parcel of ‘Superfood perfume’ arrived today, and god does it smell good! Like a child on Christmas day, I ripped open the package to find a neat little bottle, sitting comfortably within elegant Jo Malone packaging! The frangrance is set to officially launch in October, but as I'm currently working with the Jo Malone team to educate them further on the uses of Cacao, superfoods and in particular Raw Chocolate, we’ve managed to get our hands on a bottle or two early. I love my job!
“Blue Agava & Cacao’s lingering aroma evokes sensuality and sophistication. A luxurious liquid that’s sexy, edgy and persuasive.”
Setting the scene…
Enveloping the warmth of Latin culture from Mexico to Spain, Blue Agave & Cacao is a scent that interprets the movement of the music and dance of Flamenco, Tango and Salsa. An olfactory experience with an instinctual pace and tempo that dances on the skin, whilst taking your senses through an irresistible journey. Sparkling citrus notes lead to an exquisite heart where the Blue Agava flower takes centre stage. As your skin warms, the sensual blend of Vetiver with Cinnamon and the primitive rawness of Cacao, make an unexpected yet surprising harmony.
Inspired by Latin rhythm and vibrancy, Blue Agava & Cacao has its own natural momentum of call and response. Delicious accords are intertwined with the distinct fragrance of the Blue Agava flower and Cacao seeds, which in contradiction, seamlessly flow together. The combination of fresh and sparkling lime and grapefruit, heightened through the additional sea salt , make Blue Agava & Cacao effortlessly modern. These citrus fruits contrast beautifully with the dark, rich and raw Cacao that envelope the senses. Blue Agava & Cacao’s lingering aroma evokes sensuality and sophistication, a luxurious liquid that’s sexy, edgy and persuasive.
