For all the boys out there...
After a long time with Parfumo and hours of extensive testing, it becomes - as most people can confirm - more and more difficult to find a fragrance that really excites you again. Not only is it great for testing, almost exhausting and without special attention on the test hand, but with 7.5 points it is not passed on as good for you to wear, but it is passed on to you in such a way that you want to spray yourself completely with it. Ormonde Man made it! The statements are very mixed, I couldn't get a real picture of how it smells on my skin at the end. Woody-fresh or rather green, dry or even too classic?

At first apply then the surprise. Ormonde Man is absolutely airy-transparent and modern, the only thing that combines it with a classic men's fragrance is the combination of freshness, wood and green spice - but completely modernised. Nothing here is bitter or old-fashioned, on the contrary. What makes him so special is his charisma, which on the one hand is absolutely perfumed and precisely composed, but on the other hand looks as if the scent would simply be around you without being radiated by yourself. A bit like rubbing yourself with an absolutely high-quality, fragrant body lotion and carrying a delicate fragrance around with you. Not at all absurd perhaps, because with Ormonde Man I am one of the first components to make out a clear creaminess, very gently ambered, soft and fluffy. Accompanied by wood warmth and soft notes of fir balsam. Gentle flower cream and an undeniable sweetness let him move a bit towards unisex. Anyone who thinks this could be difficult or luxuriant is wrong, because he always keeps a certain freshness and his absolutely airy-transparent nature. The base changes to warmer, musk and sandalwood fuse sexy with the skin, Ormonde Man becomes lovelier but never heavy.

I cannot understand the classification which clearly assigns the older gentlemen to the fragrance. On the contrary, I find here the otherwise classic 3er combination wood fresh seasoning so modernly converted that I can imagine Ormonde Man much better at younger men (to me with 25 he fits perfectly). Light-heartedness, modernity and joie de vivre, for everyone. The fragrance matches the suit as well as the casual outfit, for every day - signature worthy!

Hotel experience

A large green meadow gives us a wonderful view over to the forest. And to the clear-cutting in the forest. The tall hemlocks are felled, the resin flies far over the field. The cones smell wonderfully of spices (9,5) and fall into the undergrowth with oud and small animals. The juniper on the slope nods to the action. Delicately dusty. Delicately flattering. Round.

The rising day is changing. Into a balmy world. A world of cleanliness.

The logs are sent for use in the spa. Scent of light woods, from maritime lands, complement the room-filling silage. Slowly the wonderful forest scent loses its intensity. Soap (7.0) is the main ingredient for the coming hours.

And soap makes me a little sad.

8.0 / 7.0 / 7.0 / ---

Thanks to Norleans for the generous rehearsal.

Once again the wallpaper is decimated by the daughter? It's not a big deal today ;)
I am not usually a friend of such fir scents, too much I have to think of Badedas Classic with its firs, pines, pines and conifers. In itself the bath additive also smells good but just for bathing. At most in the sauna or the like, I put up with such scents.
In the sauna Ormonde Man could also take place especially at the beginning. But then the fir tree, which is dominant at the beginning, turns into a balsamic, soothing and clearly enters into a cooperation with the cedar. In itself here already a beautiful and really harmonious scent. One almost wants to exclaim: Stay! You are so beautiful! With time, the scent doesn't linger as long and there are two reasons for this. On the one hand, it quickly becomes quite close to the skin where it nevertheless remains for eight hours. A great sillage or even billowing scent clouds here and there you should not expect On the other hand, the scent changes again, it becomes slightly sweetish, which is good for the fir. It doesn't stay ethereal and this woody perfume has a completely different effect. All in all, Ormonde Man is for me a fragrance that makes forest or fir tree tangible for all those who otherwise can't do much with fir except bath essences. For me it is soothing, calming and relaxing. A nice change in the fragrance portfolio.

What took you so long?
What is the best way to start a review of Ormonde Man?

"My name is Hero Father - and I love long walks through the woods?"

No - that sounds kind of cliché...

"As a child, I loved to rub pine needles between my fingers?"

Kind of silly, too.

Then so: pretty much at the beginning of my fragrance journey, there was Oud Wood Eau de Parfum - and I thought it was good.

But not VERY good and - and this is the main argument against it - my wife hated it.

But it was so nice and woody and kind of cozy.... No? Well, don't.

Since then, I've been on the lookout for a woody scent - not too synthetic, not too intrusive, not too whacky, just round and pleasant.

In vain. And then came Ormonde.

My goodness, it's good! Green, woody, resinous and pleasing - not a bit intrusive or annoying. You HAVE to like it!

I automatically think of a walk in the woods - or cut wood from coniferous trees.
Or of my childhood, when I loved to rub pine needles between my fingers (I still do...).

Sound whacky? Kind of, but it's not a bit. Ormonde Man Eau de Parfum suits all occasions, all seasons and all types.

Just good and pleasing, pleasant and - finally! - a wood fragrance, which is also well received at home

Can I cut back a little?
This title question is heard in our modern times, in which fasting, renunciation and FdH are becoming more and more fashionable. Does it have to be the schnitzel with fries again, or do we turn off to the salad buffet? The new Apple Watch made of stainless steel, or is aluminium enough? Ice cream but please with cream... ...or without? And suddenly I was faced with the question: Ormonde Man with 50% oil concentration, or is 30% enough? But let's start from the beginning.

While browsing through the top 30 men's fragrances in our favorite perfume database, I came across Ormonde Man (perfume). Of course, I ordered a bottling, and while you're at it, I ordered a "normal" eau de parfum (far outside the top 100) as well. If the highly concentrated version is really so much better, I wanted to investigate soberly and empirically.

Even before the samples arrived, I had already informed myself at Ormonde Jayne, London, how the rabbit generally runs. There were 30%, 40% and 50% concentrations, the friendly mail support told me. The first variant in a standard spray bottle, the last two variants either as a filling in the same (unfortunately with "Eau de Parfum" instead of "Parfum") or as a filling in a fancy bottle with a red cord around the bottle neck, then with "Parfum" writing, but unfortunately without the actual perfume name on it - you only have "generic" bottles for the so-called "Made-to-Measure" fragrances ("tailor-made concentration"). Sip.

When I asked the support team why the 30% concentration is called "eau de parfum", even though according to Wikipedia an EdP only has "10-20% aromatic compounds" (phew, my English was just about enough), the only answer was "we understand that this can be confusing". Hihi, well, Ormonde Jayne has his own definition and just hits the 12th. Up to now I always thought that the 42% offered by Profumum Roma is the highest of feelings. Well then, at 50% you can actually speak of "Explosion de Parfum", even above Pure Perfume / Extrait :-)

But now to the fragrances themselves: The perfume is highly praised here, and I can understand the praise very well. The higher concentration makes the fragrance appear more intense. I have the impression that the hemlock has been overdosed here more than the other notes. This seems to appeal to most people here. Personally, I find the other notes that make the scent a bit more edgy and fresh, like vetiver and pepper, a bit under
What I like about EdP is that it's a bit more barbershop-like, not so balsamic, but spicier and a bit soapy. I'd feel more comfortable with it in the office. In the evening I would prefer the perfume, with the woody-green hemlock, which is poisonous, but is said to have a calming effect (well, poison can sedate well *joking*).

Another observation in Drydown (EdP) that I don't want to conceal: Many people say they don't take oud and that's how I felt at first. But in the late drydown, when bergamot and juniper had long ago said goodbye, I suddenly noticed a sweet dusty woodiness. This note seemed familiar to me and then came the inspiration: MFK's Oud. And: Hadn't Ms. Jayne reported in an interview that she "travelled the world and came across Lao oud"? Well, Francis K. also used this (8 years later). Ergo: But a bit of oud in it. With the perfume (50%) on the other hand, I still only noticed hemlock fir.

And the moral of the story: There is no recommendation. Everyone must choose the concentration that suits them. I choose the cheaper one because I like the ticking better. And let's face it: 30% concentration is already more than 95% of the other fragrances on the market. So it may be a little less ;-)

A sharp woody-spicy with a bright peppery opening, cedar+resin base and a modest oud touch. Pleasant, versatile, but not too exciting

Well blended, fresh, bright forest, not niche composition, good quality, elegant but distant cold scent, good but expensive for the product.

The drydown is a sheer wash of pinewood and pepper,a watercolor print of the powerful first half that nonetheless works perfect.
