The very best thing that can happen to a perfume reviewer is getting a surprise; that moment when you are not sure about a certain perfume, but then the reality steps in and knocks you sideways but in a GOOD way. That was the case for me with Ormonde Jayne Rose Gold, in the three-perfume group that comprises the Ormonde Jayne Gold Trilogy Collection. With Rose Gold, the second in the Ormonde Jayne Gold Trilogy Brand Owner, Artistic Director, and Perfumer Linda Pilkington has created a masterpiece of olfactive art. Part of my over-the-top reaction to this extraordinary parfum is likely my heretofore love/hate relationship with Oudh. Well, truth be told mostly hate. I can count on one hand the number of oudh-centric fragrances that I absolutely adore and the thought of another migraine-inducing rose/oudh combination didn’t excite me. And then I sprayed the sample of Ormonde Jayne Rose Gold and what can I say? It blew the top of my head off with its creamy and perfect balance of T’aif Rose and warm and sexy oudh. I wore it four days in a row on both arms, until my two samples were bone dry, and that rarely happens.
