Ormonde Jayne Zizan is the fifth fragrance review for this Easter bank holiday and in fact I reviewed a bottle of this already, over a year ago. After picking it up earlier today and drenching myself in it, I thought it’d be nice to touch base on it once again. It can easily come across that I use the products I review only once and then they never see the light of day again but this is often not the case!
Ormonde Jayne Zizan is a truly fresh bite of citrus that’s given a luxurious third dimension composed of white woods. Many Italian-style colognes lack that third dimension and can seem very flat and insipid; this is where Ormonde Jayne breaks the mould.
Zizan has a top of Sicilian lime, lemon, bergamot, clary sage, pink pepper and juniper berry; a heart of bay, violet and jasmine then finally a base of vetiver, cedar, musk and amber. Because of the more fuller-formed fragrance pyramid, it has much more stamina than most fragrances in this family.
As we drift into brighter days, warmer weather and fewer layers Ormonde Jayne Zizan is now a well established staple in my spring/summer fragrance wardrobe and I’d be heartbroken to be without a bottle; this is now my second.
Ormonde Jayne Zizan is £110/50ml and is available here directly from Ormonde Jayne.
