A perfumer’s perfume, champaca is original, abstract, unique – inspired by the namesake tiny pale orange flower from India. Related to the magnolia and deemed sacred in the Indus Valley, champaca flower absolute is a heavenly, creamy floral scent – both elegant and intimate. Travelling through the Indian subcontinent, the aroma of basmati rice and hot tea hit Linda Pilkington – founder of Ormonde Jayne – on every corner. The memory of this evokes feelings of comfort and hospitality each time she steams rice tossed in hot butter at home. Blended with neroli and bamboo and underscored with fragrant rice and green tea notes, Champaca is a distinguished perfume of rare beauty.
