A London-based perfumery, Ormonde Jayne returns to the golden age of perfumery, an elegant era when fragrance creation was a fine art, when essential oils and absolutes were allowed to infuse 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 and matured in the classical style in our own London laboratory. Ormonde Jayne’s creator, Linda Pilkington, upholds the art with the launch of her independent perfume house is 2000.
Rare oils are hunted down for the men’s and women’s perfumes and these are blended with specially selected botanical extracts including orchid oil, water lily, green ginger and sea fennel to create the bath and body collection. To ensure the quality and supply of oils, Ormonde Jayne sources and visits growers worldwide, from Madagascar to Morocco, not only seeing the plantations but knowing the grower, the pickers and intimate details of the climate and environment.

The Emotive Power of Perfume
The perception of smell consists not only of the sensation of the odours themselves but also of the experiences and emotions associated with these sensations. Smell can evoke strong emotional reactions and this is not an invention of poets or perfumers. The art of bespoke perfumery is to understand what oils evoke a positive sensation for the client. — click here —
