Ormonde Jayne “Man”, just like its counterpart Ormonde Jayne “Woman”, is pervaded by an intriguing sense of mystery and unusual amounts of black hemlock absolute. This is not a common raw material in perfumery and we honestly don’t understand why, as it has a very atmospheric, spellbinding aroma with coniferous and balsamic, resinous nuances. The “Man” and “Woman” duo created by the Ormonde Jayne house were the first western scents to use this particular ingredient in luscious amounts. The high concentration of essence in the perfumes is evident from their colour: an entrancing forest green, mesmerising and almost mystical, a slightly lighter shade than the natural color of the black hemlock absolute. You somehow want to lose yourself in that color, the color of absinthe and half remembered strange dreams. Ormonde Jayne “Man” is the pinnacle of sophisticated woody scents. The blending is exquisite, notes are never protruding or jarring, you have this dark silk of a scent, which smells like forest breeze on a starry night: cooling but not cold, gentle yet enigmatic, a little bit spicy, a little bit smoky, infinitely subtle yet beyond words captivating. An autumnal alchemy of great refinement, fascinating and contemplative, it is perfect for restoring inner balance. And for reminding you that perfume can be a lot more than a mere pleasant smell.
Ormonde Jayne stands for a return to the golden age of perfumery, an elegant era when fragrance creation was a fine art, when essential oils and absolutes were infused for a period of months before filtration and then allowed to mature again before bottling, resulting in a deeper, more complex perfume. Ormonde Jayne’s oils are compounded from finest ingredients available and matured in the classical style in its own London laboratory. By doing so, Ormonde Jayne’s creator Linda Pilkington upholds the fine art of exquisite perfumery whose principles she meticulously applied in every creation included in her fragrance collection.
