Ormonde Jayne, project haute parfumerie of nose Linda Lilkington, has spoiled us rotten with quality all around. (You can see the rationale and philosophy of the brand explained in the interview Linda Pilkington granted to Perfume Shrine). Now catering to the needs of men who had only two scents (Ormonde Man, Isfarkand) to claim as purely masculine in the line ~although several could be borrowed from their female companions anyway!~ a new masculine is introduced: Zizan.
Zizan, a perfume like no other "because it has everything a man could possibly want in a single spectacular scent. This is a powerhouse perfume. Expect a deluge of boisterous Sicilian lime, lemon and bergamot but to smooth the biting edge, a brilliantly refined concentration of vetiver.
Zizan belongs to the domain of the worldly, highly sophisticated and cultivated. It also belongs to the strategist - the man who knows how to seduce".
The notes include a refreshing top of Sicilian lime, lemon, bergamot, clary sage, pink pepper and juniper berry; a rich aromatic floral heart of bay, violet and jasmine; and a refined base of Vetiver, cedar, must and amber.
Price is £64 for the standard luxurious 50ml/1.7oz presentation of the Ormonde Jayne fragrances in the potent concentration of Eau de Parfum.
Available from Ormonde Jayne Perfumery, 12 The Royal Arcade London W1S 4SL, UK and Ormonde Jayne Perfumery, Boutique 1 Jumeirah Beach, Dubai. Soon online.
Ormonde Jayne has also recently introduced a multiple-wick candle, in time for the darker season and the holidays, to lend a touch of fragrant luminosity into those cold nights ahead.
And because they want to spoil us to the point of no return, there is a special event on Thursday 20th November (with roasted chestnuts and Father Christmas appearences along the street) in which Ormonde Jayne perfumery participates with a discount of 10% off for in-person-purchases on that day or even by phone or online with code NOEL.
Furthermore, visit the official website Ormonde Jayne and profit of a 10% discount with code THANKS (duration of offer till 27th November).
As my loaded schedule tucks in projects, errands and duty travelling to other places, London visits have to wait till Christmas time, so I am eyeing a bottle of Ormonde Woman to stand beside my beloved Tolu prompted by this. What will you get?
