Isfarkand is a mysterious thing. Its structure is simple and relatively linear – peppery citruses over grassy vetiver and radiant woods – but it transmits such a laid-back, uncluttered appeal that you’ll find yourself wondering if there’s more to it than meets the eye. Ormonde Jayne’s signature opening notes of pink pepper and citrus burn even brighter than normal here, giving the scent the exciting zestiness of a freshly-peeled lime. The peppery spice hugs the toasty cedar and vetiver tightly, the result being a close-knit mélange of clean woods, citrus, grass, and spice that is so pleasurable to wear that it doesn’t really make sense to try and pick it apart.
