I smell deep red spiced mulled wine, with lots of cloves when I wear Pomegranate Noir, its warm and cozy, like a soft cashmere sweater. Speaking of cashmere, an ingenious use of Cashmeran is found in this composition, as it melds with the clove and stewed fruits accord beautifully, imparting a wonderful, fuzzy, musky, woody dry down.

Visions of sugar plums dance on my skin, there is the impression of strawberry rhubarb pie, a cedar wood incense cone to set the mood for the season, with its smokiness courtesy of guaiac wood in the heart (you haven't lived until you smelled guaiac wood extraction in its raw form). The pomegranate note itself, sweet yet tart, imparts on Christmas punch quality as well, its truthfully more like a cranberry note than anything else. I also am reminded of the deep crimson bayberry candles, a holiday tradition in New England. Bayberry (Myrica gale, also colloquially known as bog myrtle or sweet gale) has fragrant, peppery berries that immediately remind many in the US of Christmastime.

All is calm, all is bright.

Not overly fruity. Lively pink pepper, floral-like smell. A wintry vibe. A pretty, gentle layer of patchouli and frankincense. A touch of foody spice. Light wood. Overall this would make a great holiday, candle scent. No one note really shines, for me. Smells rather "mainstream" but I enjoy it for some reason. Not extraordinary enough to warrant such a high price.

Excellent uniting of a myriad of thoughtfully selected fragrance notes!

Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir includes:
Top = raspberry, pomegranate, plum, rhuburb, watermelon;
Heart = lily-of-the-valley, jasmine, rose, pink pepper, clove, olibanum resin (frankincense), opoponax resin (sweet brown myrrh), guaiac wood;
Base = virginia cedar, patchouli, musk, amber.

The meshing of exotic edible and non-edible fragrant notes yield a scent full of woody, fruity, resinous and spicy accords. It's rich, pungent, powdery, dark, and has a "mature" quality to it which younger wearers may not connect easily with.

Both men and women can enjoy this deep fragrance especially during cooler weather and for informal occasions. Longevity is great, and sillage is nice!

Enthusiastic thumbs up for this masterpiece!

Every year retailers put out Christmas decorations and merchandise earlier and earlier. Walking through the fragrance section at Saks the day after Halloween, I smelled this wonderful holiday smell as I noticed the store was already decorated for Christmas. The smell turned out to be a Jo Malone candle of Pomegranate Noir. Being curious I noticed the line included a PN fragrance, so I gave it a spray to the wrist. Right on queue, I got the same spiced fruit scent that I had detected in the shop candle. To describe the fragrance, it's simply a holiday spice fruit that isn't gourmand or overly sweet, so it's ultimately wearable. There's a little bit of wood and patchouli underneath, but it's fairly light. I could detect it close to my skin for about 4 hours. Nice, but not exactly my style, so a neutral and a pass for me.

Best Perfume Ever. Period. Usually don't care for woodsy notes and especially mixed with fruit but this one is great and lasts for several hours. Wear it almost every day.
