In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to do a special giveaway with one of my favorite brands of perfume, Ormonde Jayne. About a year ago I was introduced to Ormonde Jayne by a friend, Violet Devereaux. The moment she opened her bottle of Champaca for me, I was head over heels in love.
Ormonde Jayne, the London-based perfumery kindly contacted me asking if I’d like to host a giveaway and have one of my lucky readers receive a bottle of their Champaca perfume.
For those of you who want to know what Champaca might smell like, it’s a tiny pale orange flower from India. Related to the magnolia and deemed sacred in the Indus Valley, the Champaca flower absolute is a heavenly, creamy, floral scent – both elegant and intimate. Blended with neroli and bamboo and underscored with fragrant rice and green tea notes, this is a distinguished perfume of rare beauty.
