Ormonde Man (Ormonde Jayne) ★★★★★ green woody
Masculine fragrances (masculine almost everything, come to think of it) rarely venture outside tried and tested stereotypes. Those who try endure the wrath of God. People still shake their heads in disbelief at the brilliantly original Insensé (Givenchy, 1993), “A floral for men ….” It takes guts to cut loose. Ormonde Man, derived from their signature feminine, is a sultry woody-floral that sounds a muted, tourmaline- green chord from top note to drydown. Hear it once, and you’ll want it again.
