We are very proud to introduce Ormonde Jayne to the fragrance department within our Beauty hall at Fenwick Tunbridge Wells.
Ormonde Jayne fragrance for HIM & HER now in store, find out about the creation of the brand below:
Started almost by chance and as little more than the passionate hobby of an uncompromising perfectionist, founder of Ormonde Jayne, Linda's interest in perfumery started as a teenager, intrigued by the passion and romance of perfume and perfume bottles. Linda began by growing and selling flowers by the roadside outside her family home, learning to make scented candles and bathing oils from craft sets and courses, and creating beautiful scented cushions. She gained invaluable experience working in South America, Africa and the Far East, and it was in these fantastic locations, that she first learnt to appreciate and research exotic oils and essences.
On returning home, Linda continued with her love of scent and created a new collection of perfumes which were shown at a London trade show. For two consecutive years, she was awarded the first prize for style and innovation. When later asked to create ‘the perfect scented candle’ for Chanel, she rose to the challenge.
Spurred on by her own demanding standards, Ormonde Jayne’s breathtaking perfume range was born. Each product is passionately created by Linda and bottled and packaged by hand in her London workshop. The Ormonde Jayne perfumery opened on 30th November 2002 in London’s Old Bond Street.
“In creating Ormonde Jayne, my goal was to combine elements which I consider define true elegance: The quality of English craftsmanship, the art of French perfumery and the sensuality and natural harmony of the Orient."
Ormonde Jayne's philosophy is one of quality and true luxury, the pursuit of beauty and elegance. Our perfume library reposes on an exquisitely simple principle - extraordinary beautiful scents using speciality oils not widely used in the perfume industry today.
