Frangipani (Ormonde Jayne 2003) opens with a sugary, opulent note of lime. But it’s a lime of many layers. And it’s flanked by a flourish of sweet lily, orchid and lush plum. Rose and frangipani emerges carrying along amber with them. Yet still, the lime remains with its crisp, structured and light beauty, even into the sweet, spicy, vanillic and cedar drydown. Really though, this scent is kind of unique in that it seems like a 3D effect is created because it seems that it changes, giving emphasis to different notes with each movement you make. It projects in a very fascinating way.
Top notes: lime blossom, lime and magnolia. Middle notes: plum, water lily, tuberose, rose, frangipani and water lily. Base notes: amber, vanilla, cedar, and musk.
