Ormonde Jayne Woman is one of those fragrances that are almost impossible to describe using the listed notes, because it only makes sense when explained as an atmosphere or a feeling. For example, we might be able to tell you that this scent contains cardamom, coriander, and the witchy-sounding black hemlock, but we’re at a loss as to explain how or why the sum of this simple list of materials is a whole forest from The Brothers Grimm, complete with Hansel and Gretel, and Baba Yaga waiting in her smoky gingerbread house. And yet, it truly is.
First, a forest’s worth of pungent green herbs and grasses is unfurled beneath your feet, the dark shadows of poison ivy and European oaks swallowing up all the natural daylight at the edges. This velveteen, viridian carpet is dotted with moist, sweet little violets and jasmine petals, their frilly innocence incongruous against the sinister background of forest woods. Ormonde Jayne Woman is a deeply coniferous scent with a fair amount of bitterness, but what really tugs at the heartstrings is its errant thread of sweetness - that smoky, spicy amber note that weaves through the perfume like a siren call to tempt children and adults alike. One of the rare perfumes that truly deserves its reputation as “mysterious”, we defy you to wear this and not be shaken and stirred.

I didn’t get the hype with the first spray, but kept thinking about it. Now I’m in love and buying a full bottle. It’s perfect for fall/early winter.
Unfortunately I did not like Ormande Woman. However, we are not supposed to like everything are we? I am impressed with Scent Split for following through on USPS ridiculous routing. I will use use them again.
Always very pleased with Scent Split!
This is my go to woodsy calming scent. Thank you for the great price on one of my faves.
