The high-quality Jo Wood Organic products are so gorgeously packaged that you’ll be tempted to keep the empty bottles, and they’re delicately fragranced, but what is best about them is that they’re organic and devoid of harsh chemicals. Following strict ECOCERT guidelines, each of Jo Wood’s organic, eco-friendly oils was extracted from a sustainable source of ingredients using a method that does not involve solvents.
The sweet Amka is a delicious blend; Amka means ‘to wake’ in Swahili has a sweet core of Iranian rose otto and Egyptian jasmine with sparkling top notes of neroli and bergamot. Fresh green mandarin and orange blossom fused with cedarwood add a soft, spicy layer
Usiku means ‘night’ in Swahili, and is an earthbound scent, warm and sensual with a hint of sophistication suitable for women or men. The top notes are rosemary and pine needle with a hint of cardamom and hot ginger, and the heart is a mixture of coriander, clove, Moroccan cedarwood, patchouli, vetiver and a natural, powdery vanillin produced by the fermentation process, allowed under ECOCERT certification.

It’s refreshing that celebrity spouses are not solely sunning themselves in St. Barths, and in these two cases, it’s also fortuitous for fragrance lovers.
