Luca Turin reviews Ormonde Jayne Ta’if
As long as great reviewers keep targeting my favorite perfumes, I can spare y’all my feeble efforts. Completely agree with him that Ormonde Jayne is doing some of the most interesting perfuming out there.
This quote Luca picked out from a Raymond Chandler novel about Ormonde Jayne Ta’if really does say it all about this fragrance. Hmm, now how do I blockquote a quote from another blog? Well, we’ll just go with your standard blockquote.
Wear it, as Raymond Chandler said, when the desert wind blows, “one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands’ necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge”.
