Today my wife and I celebrated our thirteenth wedding anniversary, which in itself is a reason to post this, don't you think? The cliched phrase, 'time flies', does indeed apply. I can still remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. A happy day, to be sure, but how did thirteen years fly by?
My wife gave me a bottle of Jo Malone's Saffron Cologne Intense. I think it is a fairly recent release, so couldn't find many reviews of it, but my initial impression is very favourable. I tried a few from the line when it first came to my town and while I liked them, most seemed to lack longevity, particularly the cologne intense range, which I found a bit odd. Thankfully Saffron has no such issues - I sprayed it on at 9 this morning and I can still experience it quite clearly almost twelve hours later.
I'll leave you with one thought - I had no real idea what Saffron as a note really smelled like. Smelling Saffron today, I now know what the note is like and realise, somewhat belatedly. that I knew its smell all along, as it is often paired with oud in perfumes. I know I'm stating the obvious, for some of you, but hey, you learn something new every day!
