The brand

The beginnings of Ormonde Jayne are far from glamorous, started almost by chance and at the time little more than the passionate hobby of an uncompromising perfectionist.

Their in-house trained staff share the same vision and every new batch of scented products is carefully inspected before being sent out around the world.

The unmistakable style of Ormonde Jayne - intelligent design, clean lines, solid and functional yet oozing sensuality and classical elegance with their signature contrasting colours of vibrant mandarin and bitter chocolate.
It's a timeless classic, masculine yet feminine, modern yet elegant - simply stunning.

Concept

Their philosophy has always been to return to the glorious “golden age” of perfumery, an elegant era when fragrance creation was a fine art, when absolutes were infused for months before filtration, then left to mature before bottling to give a deeper, more complex formulation.

Upholding the values of a perfectionist, they manufacture all of their products in their London laboratory.
Their in-house trained staff share the same vision and every new batch of scented products is carefully inspected before being sent out around the world.

The creator, Linda Pilkington

Linda’s interest in perfumery started as a teenager, intrigued by the passion and romance of perfume and perfume bottles.
This passion led Linda to her first career, growing and selling flowers by the roadside outside her Cheshire family home.

The following fourteen years were spent travelling and working around the world. With a keen business sense and an eye for detail, Linda gained invaluable experience working in South America, Africa and the Far East.
It was in these fantastic locations, surrounded by luscious flora and intoxicated by heady scents, that Linda first learnt to appreciate and research exotic oils and essences - an extension of her childhood hobbies.

On returning home, Linda continued with her love of scent and began creating a breathtaking 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.
It wasn’t long before her inspirational vision thrust her into the limelight. 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 2001 in London’s Old Bond Street.
