Did anyone see Rock Of Ages? No? That's alright—this has nothing to do with that. It just happens to sound really similar.
Jo Malone, the London fragrance house responsible for Earl Grey & Cucumber and Wood Sage & Sea Salt, just launched the limited edition Rock The Ages collection—a five-cologne line up inspired by various eras of British history. It's got everything from your Jonathan Rhys Meyers/Cate Blanchett period (Tudor Rose & Amber), all the way to the Elizabeth Hurley generation of Royals(Birch & Black Pepper). Downton Abbey fans are encouraged to try Geranium & Verbena, meant to conjure the “cool elegance of Edwardian summers.” Winston Churchill fans are sadly SOL.
But the best part of the set is that you don't have to know anything about British history to enjoy the kitschy, ribbon design on all the purse-sized bottles. History buffs and non-alike could use some more chintz in their lives.
