Ormonde Jayne – Tolu

Perfume: Tolu
Perfumer: Ormonde Jayne
Source: Ormonde Jayne
Size: 1mL Spray Edp

Perfumer Notes:
Top- Juniper berry, orange blossoms, clary sage
Heart – Orchid, rose, muguet
Base – Tolu, Tonka bean, golden frankincense, amber

Date: 10/26/07 Weather: 50 degrees and rainy

Comments: Starts very resinous and balsamic. Then becomes this pretty, spicy rose. Goes woody towards the base. Hint of citrus, but not out there or annoying. Fave so far. Love the base of frankincense, amber and woods. Lasts about 4 hours. This strikes me as a fall scent. Really like the evolution of it.

Date: 11/13/08 Weather: 65 degrees, indoors

Comments: Wore this to a conference. Never got outside. There is a significant creaminess to it this time. Also quite rosy. A hint of vanilla and amber. Strikes me as very “professional.” Not overtly sexy or young or clean. Lasted a bit longer as I wore it for 3 days straight – about 6-8 hours.

  1. This is the favorite of the line for me. It is so fiery warm cashmere feeling for me.

  2. I’m way overdue for revisiting this line. You may have just triggered a need to wear this one again.
