Description

Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman was launched in 2004, created by the line's owner and founder, Linda Pilkington. Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman is the signature scent in the Ormande Woman line. Grass, hemlock, violet, jasmine, this combination of notes is a magical forest chypre - uplifting with sorrow interspersed in the hemlock, and earthiness running through it with the hay/grass.  There is magic in this, and it will take you on a journey into yourself.

I get asked hundreds of times what my favorite scents are, and I have many. Ormonde Woman, out of the thousands of scents I have smelled in my life, is always in my Top Five Favorite Perfumes.  It is the scent of my life (see Perfume Posse review linked below).

Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman Reviews

From Perfume Posse - "There are moments of clarity, you can see this scent clearly and know what it is, and then it becomes clouded by other notes, sometimes obscuring your view and sometimes enhancing it. If I try and get too close and scrutinize it, it loses something. Far better it is to spritz gleefully and just revel in the whole."

From Olfactoria's Travels - "Ormonde Woman is dark, witchy and full of twists and turns. It is darkest green, shot through with rays of light now and again, it is not dense or impenetrable, but you want to carry a flashlight anyway or risk falling prey to your own fears. Because those are the monsters that can hurt you most in an enchanted forest."

From The Non-Blonde - "Ormonde Woman tells a story and creates a certain image. The striking and very recognizable combination of violet-cedar-sandalwood feels like a peaceful clearing in a sacred forest. Sunlight is filtered as it hits the untouched ground where wild violets grow uninterrupted by anyone but forest creatures, magical and not."

From Kafkaesque - "I certainly agree that Ormonde Woman can be lulling and unsettling in equal measure, but I would also add some other adjectives to the mix: “mesmerizing,” “hypnotic,” and “unisex” for starters."

From Bois de Jasmin - "Beauty borders on tangible and intangible. It is not one thing or another, itself being a combination of parts, some of which are slightly odd. The difference between pretty and beautiful is in the juxtaposition of  strange elements with expected ones. In Ormonde Jayne Woman, it is a bitter resinous note of black hemlock, folded into the cardamom and sandalwood laced composition."

    Witchy Lady

    This perfume smells like sitting in a moody cocktail bar that is also a forest. It’s commanding and disarming.

    HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL AND MELANCHOLY

    This is a devastating scent. I am not very good at giving descriptions of all the ingredients of a perfume. I go on emotion. This perfume does have a haunting, almost unbearable sadness, as another reviewer suggested. I wore it yesterday while in the company of a lover of almost 35 years who may soon leave to live in a foreign country. I have felt enveloped in such sweet melancholy and this perfume seems to echo my heart's longing and final acceptance of the fleeting beauty of existence. Somewhat like the Spanish guitar, this perfume reveals some rare and precious glory that cannot be kept but will not ever be forgotten. This sadness also seems to hold some mysterious promise for the future.

    Agree with the Intro - One of My Top 5 As Well

    Couldn't agree more with the Intro description: Ormond Woman is an amazing fragrance. I've only been at this about a year and a half, but in that time I've sampled dozens of perfumes and this one really stands out. To me it is perfect - a unique, woody, NOT "masculine" or spicy or leathery fragrance. It starts out almost ashen, like a really dry wood. Then very quickly this sweetness emerges that is not floral or fruity - I guess maybe this is the hemlock? It moves on to something like pencil shavings, graphite and wood, but with a slightly resinous sweetness, maybe the combination of cedar and hay. It's not easy to pull out the individual notes because the combination is so good it creates a fragrance all its own. As it stays on your skin, you get a little more of the violet, or something honey-like, but again, with that odd, graphite note. It is a really, really interesting fragrance that to me keeps shifting between a weird wood and a very natural, but not floral or fruity, sweetness. As others have noted, it is lasting and it stays complex, it doesn't end up just smelling like whatever the base note is. I found this one last year and it is absolutely one of the best, and one of my very favorite perfumes. I've read other descriptions that call it sorrowful or sad - there's something to that. It is a poetic fragrance.

    A gorgeous, voluptuous fragrance

    Ormond Jayne Woman is aptly named -- it is a womanly, lush, delicious fragrance. I am not good at picking out the individual notes, but I know what I like, and this fragrance is simply gorgeous. And long-lasting!

    Too sweet

    A little too heavy and sweet for me.

    Gorgeous woman

    This scent is now top of my list for someone else to buy me as soon as I can talk them (him) into it. It is a beautiful woody, dark, chypre that makes me feel like one of the more interesting inhabitants of a magic/realist forest.
