We say: Wow - just had a whiff of this new Jo Malone fragrance Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Cologne Intense. If R-Patz was a perfume, we reckon this is what he'd smell like. It's lush! Sorry folks, you'll have to wait until September 2011 to get your nostrils on it. But we can give you an olfactory preview: this is a sexy, grown-up scent that's in touch with its feminine side, but not overly girlie with smouldering notes of amber and the lightest spiciest hint of ginger. An absolute hit for Jo Malone - the British perfume biz that was started on Jo's kitchen table many moons ago.

They say: "Now part of the permanent collection, Dark Amber & Ginger Lily was created in 2008 by the Jo Malone Creative Studio in collaboration with Andrea Lupo as a limited edition. Rich, radiant and redolent of ritual, this fragrance was inspired by the ancient Japanese ceremony of Kohdo - the appreciation of incense and manipulation of moods through the nature of scents... Originally used as a perfume in ancient times, black cardamom is aromatic and smoky in nature with an air of clean sensuality. As a base for incense, kyara wood is held in the highest regard and is prized for its rarity and richness. With its deep, dark and rich nature, kyara wood has a resinous, relaxing aura, appropriate for meditation. An exotic and exquisite combination, this dark and sensual mix of ingredients embodies the essence of twilight."
