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."
