Jo Malone Poppy & Barley was introduced in 2019. It is a floral fragrance created by Mathilde Bijaoui. Poppy and Barley features top notes of fig, black currant and violet; middle notes of wheat, powdery notes and poppy; and base notes of barley, white musk and bran to create a living landscape where colorful poppies emblazon the rich gold fields of a harvest. It is a cologne.
From Fragrantica: Poppy & Barley is a very beautiful and easy-to-wear fragrance. It’s wonderfully reminiscent of the crystal and floral vibes of 1990s scents, but in its own way. Sparkling flowers, juicy fig and currant, and fresh earthy wheat and barley are the predominant notes of this fragrance. Poppy & Barley is bright, lovely, and happy. I love how it isn’t powdery at all. It’s classic and timeless.
From cafleurebon: From the start of Jo Malone Poppy and Barley, the violet's sweet, cool, blue and flirty ionones play hide and seek with a brilliant poppy accord created by perfumer Mathilde Bijaoui of MANE. As most gardeners know, poppies have very little, if any scent. In order to convey the bright red colors of poppy, the flower of sleep, remembrance and resurrection, the perfumer uses facets of deep red rose, spicy carnation and green leaves. This initial floral bouquet is zipped up and colored with the minty, fruity, tangy character of blackcurrant. Throughout the life of the fragrance, the floral bouquet never fades, but at about ten minutes the flowers are enfolded and wrapped in evolving layers of green barley stalks, grains and the yeasty warmth of barley malt and bran. A nostalgic impression of the English countryside, of fields of waving green and golden grain dotted with flaming red poppies, creates a romantic aura on skin and clothing that lasts for six hours and more. To the very end the scents of flowers and barley dance and play until, at last, my dreams of Greek myths and English legends and landscapes disperse and disappear on a breeze of powdery musk.
