Description

Ormonde Jayne Tolu was launched in 2002, created by the line's owner and founder, Linda Pilkington.  Ormonde Jayne Tolu is a woody oriental based around tolu balsam, frankincense and myrrh to create this lush, plump, warming oriental.

Ormonde Jayne Tolu Reviews

From Bois de Jasmin - "While Tolu is inspired by a classical oriental theme, it places its accents differently, emphasizing the leathery balsamic notes at the expense of seductively sweet ones. Tolu opens up on an exhilarating herbal accord, where the freshness of clary sage and thyme is set against the resinous warmth of juniper berries. The rich oriental notes assert themselves immediately, revealing a richness of vanilla, cinnamon, and amber. Transparent floral notes further lighten up the heft of the oriental accord. As the composition dries down, it takes on a leathery, ambery character, which is what remains on the skin for the whole length of Tolu’s excellent duration."

From Kafkaesque - "It is an airy, breezy, narcotically heady, heavy, dewy green, freshly orange floral… no, I mean, lushly spicy amberous oriental, no, I mean, a woody, balsam and pine smoky floriental…  It is a contradiction that delights, that keeps your nose plastered to your arm, that awes you with its heady, airy opulence, and that recalls the happiest moments of carefree youth while making you feel every inch a sophisticated adult. It is intoxicating. And I cannot recommend it enough."

From EauMG - "Tolu is refined. Tolu is a modern sweet resinous scent. It doesn’t attempt to recreate 19th century spice routes. If Tolu reminds me of anything “old”, it only reminds me of late 1950’s Vogue fashion photography where the graceful, long-necked model is draped in taffeta and honey-hued furs. Tolu is an elegant, modern amber."

From Olfactoria's Travels - "Ultimately, Tolu is a very wearable, warming, comforting and plush fall scent, even for “anti-orientalists”."

From Perfume Smellin' Things - "Rich orientals are not exactly few and far between. The drier, more understated ones are somewhat harder to find. And as the weather gets warmer, a perfume like Tolu would wear beautifully, its comparatively subdued character making it wonderfully versatile- an appropriate choice both for an office and for a dressed up evening out."

    Exquisite

    Gorgeous, lovely, very sophisticated. I was surprised by how much I loved this. This is definitely full-bottle worthy! If you love orange blossoms and rich ambers, I would definitely give this a try.

    not what I expected

    I thought I'd smell something more forest-y and resinous, but on me this was a very quiet, almost nondescript perfume. When I did get whiffs of it I was reminded of Dune, which I find much more interesting to wear.
