The romantic description of Ormonde Jayne's Ta'if fragrance tells it all. A damask rose from Arabia. Ta'if, a town rising 5,000 feet above the shores of the Red Sea and overlooking the Arabian desert, is renowned for its plantations of Ta'if rose. Ta'if by Ormonde Jayne is an intoxicating...

Here are some fragrances I hope will still be around: Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman; Tauer Perfumes L'Air du Désert Marocain and Une Rose Chyprée; and L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzing! and Nuit de Tubéreuse; and the core Serge Lutens line for a few. Please chime in with your hopes and predictions!

I've been trying the new Sugar Butter solid fragrance from Ormonde Jayne in my favourite OJ scent; Ta'If. If you haven't discovered Ta'If it's an oriental, spicy rose that defies the category really. I wouldn't ever pick out an oriental or a spicy perfume – call me bland but I love a floral...

No one would ever think of using rare Hawaiian flowers to produce the perfect perfume, but Ormonde Jayne dare to dream. They've even created a dusting powder made from pure gold dust. No wonder they can count Emma Thompson and Yasmin Le Bon amongst their fans! Despite their popularity, you...

With no officemates to offend, I can go wild with the powerhouse perfumes, the sort of perfumes you smell on your sweater for days. Guerlain Shalimar, Jean Desprez Bal à Versailles, Guerlain Samsara, Rochas Femme, Comme des Garçons + Daphne Guinness Daphne, and Frédéric Malle Portrait of a...

I wanted to like On Perfume Making; I like Frédéric Malle. But after reading this book I wonder if he isn't just as jaded about his customers as he is about fragrance executives. I hope that some day soon the book is packaged with a complete set of sample vials — at a lower price point. I...

The musky second half of Frédéric Malle Angéliques sous la Pluie feels warm and delicate as cashmere, for instance, as does, believe it or not, Jovan White Musk. A powdery iris, like another Frédéric Malle, Iris Poudre, has the smooth and tight yet soft texture of cashmere, as does Annick...
