Boutique Profile – London Ormonde Jayne Perfumery

Choosing a perfume is very personal. Most of my life I’ve been given perfume and happily worn them but to choose a scent for oneself is quite special. I used to always wear perfume. I’d wear it out, I’d wear it after a bath and to bed and then I stopped wearing perfume and I’m not sure why. Maybe there were just too many scents in my life: scented shampoo, deodorant, soap, laundry soap, hand soap, face cream etc. It was just too many scents so I started buying everything unscented.

When we look at clothes we are often influenced by things like trends, magazines and friends but scent is still a rather pure sense. It’s just so personal.

I recently received a perfume sampler from Ormonde Jayne. It’s delightful to test scents. I’ve been to wine and even scotch tasting events but I think a perfume sampling event would be a wonderful idea! In the sampler there are 11 fragrances in a 2ml mini spray. Some scents you just love and some scents you don’t like at all!

I think Osmanthus – a citrusy floral – is my favourite, at least for today!

    This sounds really lovely, I have a thing for really good perfumes, even if they are eye wateringly expensive or you can only afford the tiniest tube of it! I will be trekking along to OrmondeJ!
