Brand Ormonde Jayne
Ormonde Jayne Man takes the bracing coniferous freshness of Ormonde Jayne Woman, and spins it in a slightly different direction, peppering the topnotes with a sparkling lemon and juniper pairing, and giving the basic structure a drier, cleaner feel, with plenty of cedar and agarwood in the drydown for muscle. Juniper, coriander, and a clever use of cardamom up front give the opening a turbo-blast of luridly green, almost fruity spice that propels the scent forwards, as if tied to a jetpack.
Although different in feel and texture to Ormonde Jayne Woman, Ormonde Man retains all of its sister scent’s mysterious, witchy atmosphere. Imagine losing your way in a thick pine forest in winter; it is dark and cold, but oddly, you feel at complete peace. All around you, the trees exhale their sweet essence of conifer and pine sap, and you breathe it in gladly, knowing that it is both cleansing and nourishing. The oud wood is dry and medicinal, but merged with the sandalwood, cedar, spice, and musk, it becomes less spice route and more traditional Chinese health potion. The drydown is a sheer wash of pinewood and pepper, a watercolor print of the powerful first half that nonetheless works as the perfect fragrance for a gentleman who favors class over volume.

This is very well-balanced, nicely blended fragrance. Balance of citrus and spice in the opening without getting too spicy. This is slightly dry and dusty. Think Cedrat Boise with the fruityness toned down and with added spice.
The projection is pretty good in the first hour or so then it retreats a lot closer to the skin after than. Quite poor longevity.
Nice pleasing scent. Good compliment getter
