Ormonde Jayne London was founded by Linda Pilkington in 2002. In collaboration with perfumer Geza Schoen, the brand became a cult favorite but until this year impossible to find in the USA. When I started ÇaFleureBon, Creative Director Linda Pilkington was one of the first to cheer us on, helping us celebrate our first birthday in 2011. One of the newest in the collection is Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal perfume, which was a Selfridge’s exclusive in 2016.
“It was created several years ago and sat in my library waiting for a moment to launch. When the time came for a “gender-free” perfume to hit the market, I thought about Ambre Royal again, pulled it out and asked people’s opinions. Everyone loved it. At the moment it’s the worldwide best seller“-Linda Pilkington for CaFleureBon
Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal Perfume is one of the most sophisticated fragrances in the line, and Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal perfume is equally suitable for a man or for a woman, not cloying or sweet like many amber perfumes.
Michelyn’s Bottle of Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal Perfume
Unisexy, Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal uses Ambroxan©, a synthetic molecule and an alternative to Ambergris. Ambroxan © has a musky woody profile and when done right, the way Geza Schoen does it here in Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal perfume, it adds elegance and balance. Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royal perfume is deep and resinous and not just another amber scent.
