A ‘labour of love’ from Ormonde Jayne

The latest fragrance is all about temptation – and it has certainly succeeded in tempting us.

Black Gold is a super-sophisticated, seductive and luxury scent created by Linda Pilkington. Its gloriously fresh top notes of zesty citrus, bergamot, mandarin, clary sage and boozy juniper berry draw you in to a floral heart of water lilies, jasmine, rose, orchids and carnation absolute.

The dry down welcomes a complex base made up of moss, labdanum, oudh, musk, ambrett seed, cedar, patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla and schinus molle.

‘The most important aspect was searching for the most absolute ‘absolue’ oils. Finding a quality of sandalwood 20 classes better than other sandalwoods,’ explains Founder and Creator of Ormonde Jayne, Linda Pilkington. ‘Each ingredient was extensively researched and the final perfume was a labour of love.’
