Ormonde Jayne Zizan (2008) {New Perfume} {Men's Cologne}

Zizan-Ormonde-Jayne-3.jpgLondon-based niche perfumery Ormonde Jayne has introduced a new men's perfume called Zizan. It is the eleventh composition by perfumer and owner Linda Pilkington and her third men's cologne after Ormonde Man and Isfarkand.

The new scent rests on a main vetiver and citrus accord and aims to be rich and complex enough to be entirely satisfying on its own - no suggestion of layering here as you can see, and in fact, quite the reverse,

"Zizan, a perfume like no other because it has everything a man could possibly want in a single spectacular scent. This is a powerhouse perfume."...
Linda Pilkington explained that the name of the scent was coined after the Latin name for vetiver: vetiveria zizanoïdes.

"Expect a deluge of boisterous Sicilian lime, lemon and bergamot but to smooth the biting edge, a brilliantly refined concentration of vetiver.

Zizan belongs to the domain of the worldly, highly sophisticated and cultivated. It also belongs to the strategist - the man who knows how to seduce."

The perfume opens on fresh, spicy and aromatic notes of Sicilian lime, lemon, bergamot, clary sage, pink pepper and juniper berry. It develops into a floral heart of violet and jasmine counterbalanced by the masculinity of bay. The warm base unfolds on notes of vetiver, cedar, musk and amber.

A 50 ml spray bottle is priced at £64

  1. I have just received my free sample in the post and I can confirm that the best things in life are indeed free! I know it's designed for men, and it will lead to arguments with my literal and suddenly territorial husband, but it's utterly gorgeous! Beautiful floral citrus beginning and then it gets better & better!!!

    • Oh, wonderful! I am expecting a sample as well. Now I am looking forward to it with an added layer of anticipation.

  2. i am looking forward to trying this as i just received it this morning but haven't had time to try it yet!

    • Happy testing! I hate to admit it, but I've had a sample of that for a while and haven't come around to testing it yet! Optimal zen conditions are hard to come by. Maybe I ought to downgrade a little :)
