Champaca is unusual in that it's a floral fragrance that doesn't smell too much of flowers, let alone the titular one. There is a hint of peppery freesia, but it comes across more as clean linen than a flower. Likewise, there is a lot of waxy, yellow champaca blossom here, but only really perceptible as a burst of something lemony and creamy, like magnolia with an undertow of dusky honey. The flowers simply melt into the basmati rice accord to form a subtly peppery creaminess that relieves the sharp, tannic twang of the green tea and citruses.
There is something ineffably charming about Champaca, it is rather hard to pin down, but its pearlized, milky freshness gives it all the delicacy of the inside of a conch shell. As sensual as clean skin, we highly recommend Champaca as a soft, slightly milky floral oriental that will enchant in even the hottest of weather.

Very nice fragrance but not last long enough
Very nice scent. I just wish it would last longer on my skin
I really wanted to love this scent as I love all the notes individually- unfortunately, it just didnt come together for me as I thought it would. Still a good fragrance, but its very 2 dimensional and reminds me of a body mist. Suits well if you want to smell good but not overwhelm those around you. This being said I used it on a friend of mine as it smelt nicer on them than it did me so it mightve not mixed well on my skin.
Smells floral with sweet banana on the dry down .
This is not my favorite of the Ormonde Jayne fragrances. Its not a bad fragrance, its just not one that works well with my body chemistry. It seems more citrusy, floral to me. And I would say, definitely a Spring/Summer fragrance, as I think it smells better on me in warmer months. But as I state in all my reviews, perfume is a unique as you are....some people can wear it and love it, and some people can not. Its all a matter of taste and body chemistry. I prefer more oriental fragrances. Im also in my early 60s. All things should be considered.
