Are you looking for a perfume that has personality and individuality? And you will only settle for an original scent?
Luxury British perfumery Ormonde Jayne may be what you’re searching for.
Recently the perfumery sent us their Discovery Set which comprised of 2ml mini sprays of 12 of its perfumes. While we aren’t easily captivated by fragrances, we quickly discovered two scents we simply adore — Champaca and Frangipani.
Champaca is a light, powdery, comfort scent.
The basmati note envelops you like a soft, cozy cashmere blanket. There is just something about this fragrance that makes you feel fresh, yet intimate and elegant. The notes are neroli, pink pepper, bamboo with heart notes of champaca, freesia absolutes, basmati notes, myrrh, green tea notes and musk.
Frangipani is a soft, captivating scent with a hint of tropical. It is beyond lovely.
The notes are linden blossom, magnolia flower, lime peel with heart notes of white frangipani, jasmine, rose and tuberose absolutes, water lilies, plum, and green orchid oil. The base notes are amber, musk, cedar and french vanilla absolute.
Founder Linda Pilkington has a simple philosophy: luxury, quality, and elegance. Ormonde Jayne ensures the quality of its rare oils and botanical extracts by carefully sourcing and visiting their growers worldwide. Their perfume library is based on this exquisitely simple principle – extraordinarily beautiful scents using specialty oils not widely used in the perfume industry today.
Ormonde Jayne, located at London’s Old Bond Street, is about returning to the golden age of perfumery, an elegant era when fragrance creation was a fine art, when essential oils and absolutes were allowed to infuse for a period of months before filtration and then allowed to mature again before bottling, resulting in a deeper more complex perfume. This chic little shop is the place where those in the know go for fragrances, perfumed bath & body lotions and exquisite scented candles.
The Discovery Set, priced at £42 with complimentary shipping worldwide, is perfect for any fragrance aficionado to try out each luxurious scent. Linda recommends trying each one over several days to see how the fragrances go from day to night.
