Linda Pilkington and Geza Schoen on the Orient Express 2012 via Ormonde Jayne©
The creative and original ideas that form Ormonde Jayne have all developed from Linda Pilkington’s passion for travel. On Friday October 29, 2012 aboard the Orient Express, Linda Pilkington, founder, perfumer and creative director of Ormonde Jayne launched “The Four Corners of the Earth”, a quartet of perfumes which pays homage to the different parts of the world that have inspired her and acknowledge the rich diversity of Linda's hometown, London (Geza Schoen is the perfumer in collaboration with Linda Pilkington for all four in the series: Qi, Tsarina, Nawab de Oudh and Montabaco). According to my Interview with Linda Pilkington, “Montabaco is a perfume to capture the essence of Latin America: leather, suede, wood and tobacco leaf repeated over and over again creating a suggestive sensuality and Latin temperament. It sits above the rich floral presence of magnolia, jasmine and rose. It is all unashamedly seductive yet profoundly simpatico'.
Marriage Italian Style: Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren
For me, Ormonde Jayne Montabaco is a sensual and elegant fragrance where tobacco leaf is blended seamlessly with airy notes and spices, not heavy or overbearing. You wear this fragrance it doesn’t wear you. I imagine actors Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren when I spray on Ormonde Jayne Montabaco. Perhaps no two actors had such inimitable range, class and style together, which matches this perfume perfectly. Over the weekend I went to a Holiday party and my boyfriend and I decided to wear Ormonde Jayne Montabaco (we usually don’t do that as tobacco fragrances can skew very masculine on me) We were stopped by both men and women the entire night. What. Are. You. Wearing.
Sr. Contributor Sebastian Jara of the YouTube Channel Smelling Great agrees, and says that Ormonde Jayne Montabaco is one of the best tobacco fragrances he has smelt. – Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief
