Vanille des Afriques Intensivo: A NEW Launch from Ormonde Jayne

Ormonde Jayne Vanille des Afriques Intensivo - That September Muse

Vanille des Afriques Intensivo evokes the ambiance of a serene, balmy evening where you bask in the glow of the sunset while a gentle breeze rustles through your silks and linens. Its velvety luminosity envelops you, inducing a state of tranquil comfort and contemplation—like a sanctuary of relaxation. Infused with orris butter and a rich abundance of Madagascan vanilla absolute, accented by a delicate hint of jasmine, this fragrance offers a tantalising olfactory experience.

Overall, I'd say Ormonde Jayne's Vanille des Afriques Intensivo is a vanilla like no other!


It appears that Ormonde Jayne has recently upgraded its travel spray packaging. I have some other travel sprays from the brand that are packaged in thin glass bottles with plain metal lids. This bottle, however, is made with strong glass and looks very sturdy. The lid has rings that look very sophisticated.


  • Head: Orris Butter, Jasmine Absolute, Magnolia Bud Oil, Osmanthus
  • Heart: Coriander Seed, Sicilian Bergamot, Carrot Seed, Pink Pepper
  • Soul: Madagascar Vanilla, Bourbon Vanilla, Cedar Wood, Vetiver, Amber, Musk

With top notes of orris, magnolia, jasmine, and osmanthus, middle notes of coriander, carrot seeds, pink pepper, and Sicilian bergamot, and base notes of Madagascar vanilla, bourbon vanilla, musk, cedar, vetiver, and amber, this fragrance is a harmonious symphony of aromatic elements.

While not overly sweet, it remains perfectly unisex, offering a decent projection without overwhelming the senses. Vanille des Afriques Intensivo has a lasting presence on the skin for up to 8 hours.
