Actor Idris Elba is in the running to become the new 007James Bond (source.com)
Ormonde Jayne London was founded by Linda Pilkington in 2002. In collaboration with perfumer Geza Schoen, the brand became a cult favorite but until last year impossible to find in the USA. Two of the first fragrances to debut 15 years ago were Ormonde Jayne Woman and Ormonde Man by Ormond Jayne. While one of the newest in the London perfume house’s collection Ormonde Jayne Ambre Royale (Sebastian reviewed this in December 2014) is currently the number one best seller worldwide, Ormonde Man by Ormond Jayne has had a cult following over the years and along with its counterpart Woman, was the first to use hemlock in a fragrance and surprisingly, oud. But instead of smelling heavy and dark, Ormonde Man by Ormond Jayne smells sophisticated and classy. To our noses, it smells very British and elegant, as if any guy could spritz it on and suddenly be olfactively transformed, Instead of wearing sweat pants he would magically be dressed in a bespoke suit and tie. There has been a lot of speculation about who the next 007 James Bond will be now that Daniel Craig is passing the torch. My money is on Idris Elba, the epitome of British style and sexiness; he would be wearing Ormonde Man by Ormond Jayne which wears close to the skin…perfect for 007.
