Reviews of Zizan by Ormonde Jayne

There are 18 reviews of Zizan by Ormonde Jayne.

opens with promise...nice citrusy blend of lemon/lime/bergamot...pretty juicy and realistic smelling...sudden appearance of pepper that just keeps growing and growing...slight herbal accent...the promise quickly turns to a semi-generic designer mall scent...the realism starts fading and a synthetic vibe appears...quickly losing interest in this...feel like i've smelled this many times before under other names...gets dry and kinda woody as it dries down with just a smidgen of vetiver...move along, nothing to see here...

Bitter woods. The bay leaf I guess, though without any of the uplifting aspect you'd hope for in that. Really disappointing. It is linear and only makes things worse by lasting a long time too.

Are we men doomed to smell spicy all day? What's up with all these peppery crap they keep unloading on us guys? Do we all look like meat for the barbecue??

ZIZAN as Pilkington envisioned it in 2008 is unfortunately yet another bottle from the spice and herb rack at your local Sainsbury's. Granted, the opening clary sage and juniper berry herbaceous notes did hold my attention for a brief spell, right up to the spicy-green bay leaf accord. But thereafter the composition falls apart. It gets all peppery and I start feeling like a meat on the grill again.

Hey, stick a fork in me. I'm done.

I personally don't think this fragrance deserves the poor reviews it seems to receive. At once, it is a quality and skilfully realised scent with bold projection and enduring longevity. The super-masculine blend of citrus, herbs, wood and vetiver evolves elegantly and reminds me a little of Terre d'Hermes and Gucci by Gucci pour Homme by the time it has reached the final stages. Very good.

At the price this is simply not worth it. Terribly disappointing, opening notes of Lemon and very citric, then oak moss and the trouble is the longevity is so long. A crap fragrance which stays forever. What could be worse. Oh the price! Thats even worse!

Be careful here. The top notes are particularly lovely but after about 10 minutes Zizan becomes somewhat generic and worst of all - cheap smelling. Very disappointing.
