Cult scents avant la lettre
For years I have been a great admirer of perfumer Linda Pilkington, founder of Ormonde Jayne in London. The philosophy of this extraordinary perfume house is based on sophistication, authentic luxury and a relentless quest for beauty and elegance. Linda creates her perfumes from the seemingly simple principle of combining exquisite scents with extraordinary ingredients not used on a large scale in the perfume industry today.
In Linda Pilkington’s own words: “In creating Ormonde Jayne, my goal was to combine elements which I consider define true elegance: the quality of English craftsmanship, the art of French perfumery and the sensuality and natural harmony of the Orient.”

The fragrances of Ormonde Jayne are widely acclaimed. Linda received the Wall paper Magazine’s Best Scent Award for her perfume Isfarkand :
Super cool in style, vibrant and sensual, Isfarkand is the latest fragrance for men from Ormonde Jayne. Beautifully balanced notes of lime, mandarin and bergamot all wrapped up in pink pepper, cedar, vetiver and moss make Isfarkand an uncomplicated yet dynamic scent.
While the scents are composed of modern ingredients, the distinct notes maintain their classic elegance, which is one of the exceptional aspects of the Ormonde Jayne collection. These perfumes are tailored for people who appreciate refined and elegant fragrances, and who prefer to steer clear both of modern marketing and synthetic aromas.
