Ormonde Jayne Expands to Dubai
The British perfume line Ormonde Jayne has expanded to Dubai. The full range of fragrances is now available at the luxury goods department store Harvey Nichols.
Ormonde Jayne has so far only been available at eight 'doors' world-wide, as well as their on-line store. Founder and perfumer Linda Pilkington (who is a self-taught nose) says she has been careful to control growth and quality at every step. The company specialises in using specialty oils not widely used in the perfume industry today.
In a statement, the perfumer said: “My goal is to combine elements which I consider define true elegance: the quality of English craftsmanship, the art of French Perfumery and the natural harmony of the Orient.”
Large scented candles and essential bathing oils in the women’s fragrances are hand blended and poured in Ormonde Jayne’s London studio. The company is expected to expand it's range in the near future, which will include a new fragrance line and additional body care. Current body lotions and shower creams are said to be 'rich in natural extracts of orchid, camellia seed, water lily combined with Vitamin E and shea butter.'
Current perfumes in the line, which will be available in Dubai are:
Champaca, Ta’if, Frangipani, Isfarkand, Osmanthus, Orris Noir, Ormonde Woman, Tolu, Ormonde Man and Zizan.
Basenotes will be running an interview with perfumer Linda Pilkington shortly.
