FRAGRANCE FAMILY: AMBRÉE
The Ormonde Jayne perfume house – created by Linda Pilkington in 1992 – is renowned for its fine perfumes, and Vanille d’Iris is the newest exquisite scent in the Ormonde Jayne repertoire: truly a classic-in-the-making. Using only the highest quality ingredients, Ormonde Jayne has here created a harmonious blend of two precious and beautiful absolutes – vanilla and iris.
It surprises with a peppery opening of bergamot, coriander seed, carrot seed, delivering a sparkling touch. The orris-rich heart is complemented by a bouquet of exotic white flowers: jasmine, magnolia and osmanthus. The base seduces and soothes with aphrodisiac Tahitian vanilla bud wrapped up in warm amber, with smoky vetiver ensuring it never tips into over-sweetness. Rich, voluptuous and enveloping, Vanille d’Iris will retain its elegance on your skin throughout the day.
