Does your fragrance change as the seasons change?
SPRING: Lily of the valley, lilac, cassie (Tauer Carillon Pour un Ange, Frederic Malle En Passant & Une Fleur de Cassie)
SUMMER: Citrus, green scents (Serge Lutens Fleurs de Citronnier, Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, Ormonde Jayne Frangipani)
FALL: Spicy rose (OJ Ta'if, Tauer Incense Rose,...
Le Labo Lys 41 ~ fragrance review It doesn't smell anything like Ormonde Jayne's Frangipani, but it has that same cheerful, good-day-to-be-alive sort of feeling. I am betting that Ylang 49 will get more interest from perfumistas, and it is possibly the better scent, but it didn't really suit me; Lys 41 is already on my buy...
The Monday Mail ~ help Verity find a wedding perfume She really loves Ormonde Jayne Frangipani and wears it most days; she also likes most of the other Ormonde Jayne perfumes with the exception of Ta'if (a bit sweet and she can taste it in the back of her throat). She also likes Le Labo Rose 31 but it reminds her of work — a hotel where she...
The Monday Mail ~ help Lilian find another new perfume 5 or 19, Bvlgari Omnia (all of them), the Nina Ricci and Issey Miyake lines, Ormonde Jayne Osmanthus, Tiare, Sampaquita, Fragipani and Champaca (they don't last on her).
Fragrances Lilian owns include:
Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee: this time she would like something less...
The Monday Mail ~ help Karen find a new perfume
Ormonde Jayne line: she is working her way through a sample set, but so far did not like any.
Chanel Chance, Allure, Coco Mademoiselle: too sweet, and more headaches.
Love, Chloé: too powdery and too womanly.
Chloé Eau de Parfum: too much, and too much sillage.
Marni: probably too...
The Monday Mail ~ open thread for feedback, September through December 2012
* Ormonde Jayne Champaca – for this credit goes to Alyssa, gvillecreative, and austenfan who suggested the OJ discovery set, which was a big winner!
The Monday Mail ~ help Verity find a new perfume
Ormonde Jayne Woman: after a promising opening, it went bitter/sweet and then ended up like a department store synthetic pink juice.
Guerlain Shalimar: too soft, too sweet.
Annick Goutal Matin D'Orage: even watery greenish white flowers were too much for her.
25 Rose Fragrances Every Perfumista Should Try
Ormonde Jayne's Ta'if places its Damascus rose in a setting of saffron and pepper, dried fruit and resins. When I wear this fragrance, I feel as though I'm journeying across foreign lands, even though I'm just headed to the office or the corner-store.
When Le Labo opened in 2006, its Rose...
Perfume: Giving Thanks :: Now Smell This Without the internet, I probably never would have discovered Ormonde Jayne Woman, let alone been able to buy it. Without the scent split site I joined, I'd miss out trying the rare, expensive perfumes I couldn't possibly purchase by the bottle.
Last — and I'm sure you saw this one coming —...
Ormonde Jayne Four Corners of the Earth Collection ~ new fragrances
Ormonde Jayne Four Corners of the Earth Collection Montabaco, Tsarina, Nawab of Oudh and Qi will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
The inspiration for the new perfume collection 'The Four Corners of the Earth' came from the indigenous flora of different parts of the world I have...
What's Your Favorite Perfume?
"I really like Rochas Femme" or "Guerlain L'Heure Bleue" or "Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman" or "Caron Tabac Blond, the old stuff." Basically, I just toss out names of some of my top 50 perfumes and hope that will satisfy them. Sometimes it's just too hard to try to explain that I can't...
The Monday Mail ~ help Jennifer find a new perfume Some favorites include Cartier Declaration, Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Man, Estee Lauder Private Collection, Azuree & Knowing, Parfums de Nicolaï Le Temps de Une Fete & Odalisque, Chanel No. 5 and Tauer Perfumes Incense Extreme (and she also likes Comme des Garçons Avignon).
Ys Uzac Pohadka ~ fragrance review For instance, I'd always want to smell something new by Vero Profumo, Parfums DelRae, or Ormonde Jayne. From testing Ys Uzac Pohadka, I wonder if Switzerland-based Ys Uzac might join that list.
Pohadka Eau de Parfum, which comes with the subtitle "Ainsi la nuit," is a light, complex tobacco...

Osmanthus: The Scent of Happiness ~ out of the bottle
But so far, I've been content to simply sniff the flowers in their little tin, while I think of how each osmanthus-centered perfume I know teases out a different facet of the bloom: Ormonde Jayne's bright, flirty soliflore is all fruit and spring dresses. The Different Company pulls back...

The Monday Mail ~ help Linda find two new perfumes
Ormonde Jayne Woman: almost too womanly.
Ormonde Jayne Osmanthus, and Champaca: both lovely, but out of her price range.
Diptyque Eau de Neroli: pretty and delicate, but didn't make a huge impression.
Narciso Rodriguez For Her: appealing, but again too womanly.
Chanel No. 19: did
The Monday Mail ~ help Rena find a new perfume
Calypso Violette, The Different Company Osmanthus, Ormonde Jayne Ta'if, Guerlain Iris Ganache: all still workable.
The Different Company Bois d'Iris: she loved it so much she used up a whole bottle, but now it is a bit over sharp in the opening in a way that grates on her nerves
Sarah Horowitz Coconut Milk ~ fragrance review It might not be not as sophisticated as Ormonde Jayne's tropical-floral Frangipani Absolute, for example, but it's subtler and (to me) more wearable than the coconut-themed offerings from companies such as Lavanila and Pacifica. If it were a beverage, it would be an "artisanal" piña colada...
Modern Perfume Classics :: Now Smell This For example, to me Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman is both novel and gorgeous in its mossy-woody-grassy beauty. Ormonde Jayne doesn't have the marketing budget to plaster its brand over billboards and glossy magazine ads. In my mind it deserves to become a classic, but may not be able to buy its...
