tom ford collection

Tom Ford Colognes for men are most often described as complex, sophisticated, and suitable for men and women. Each fragrance is crafted with great care and attention to detail. There are many styles to choose from - some, like Tom Ford for Men Eau De Toilette, are beautifully light and understated while others like Black Orchid are deep, exotic, and sensual.

We added some consumers points of view to help.

Tom Ford Fragrances

He's the absolute master at seduction, and his nose is what puts him head-and-shoulders above the rest. He knows all about seducing people with smells.

Although they are less expensive than Tom Ford's Private Blend colognes, Velvet Orchid, Tom Ford Extreme for Men, and Grey Vetiver have the same complexity as their more expensive counterparts.

"Every fragrance is well-constructed and perfectly polished." Bound by a common, evening-appropriate sensuality, Tom Ford's signature collection is divided into three groups: Classic, Modern, and Urban.


Top 17 Best Tom Ford Fragrances For Men

Tom Ford Private Blend Tuscan Leather

Tuscan Leather -tom ford best mens cologne

Private Blend Tuscan Leather

Tuscan Leather from the Private Blend collection is an earlier edition of Ombre Leather, but despite being around for longer, it still gives you a fresh and sophisticated leather scent. It's an excellent perfume for the fall and winter.

Tom Ford best described the scent of this perfume as "deep and animalistic." The exciting closeness between leather & black suede with sparkling notes of jasmine, saffron, and thyme lends this perfume a completely original smell that people will compliment you on!

Tuscan leather is one of best Tom ford colognes!

Notes: Saffron, Raspberry, Thyme, Olibanum, Night blooming jasmine, Black suede, Amberwood tree.

What a consumer had to say: 

" Where to start with this magnificent fragrance. Yes the opening definitely smells/reminds me of cocaine. It's very strong and hits the back of your throat just like the drug.

The leather is also instantly recognisable, very powerful, dry and smoky. The dry down moves to more of a mellower suede with hints of spice and smoke. Eventually I can smell the raspberry however it's quite subtle.

For the people posting that the performance is very weak, I'm not sure where you got your bottle from but I'd check the authenticity. Performance on me is an absolute beast. 2 sprays (1 behind each ear) will easily last me 10 hours and I can smell it projecting every time I move my head. I wore 3 sprays out for dinner last night (applied at 6pm) and I could still smell it on me as soon as I woke up this morning.

I personally love this fragrance however it's not a crowd pleaser in my opinion. If you wear it you will definitely stand out though. Tuscan Leather proudly sits in my collection as a scent for me and me alone. I don't care what others think when they smell it as I feel amazing when wearing it.

It also works great layered with TF Tobacco Vanille so give that a try if you own both."

The Decadent - Fucking Fabulous

 Fucking Fabulous - best tom ford mens fragrance

Fucking Fabulous

Released at the end of 2017, this delicate unisex fragrance blends almond oil, tonka bean, and clary sage provoked the kind of publicity most brands would only dream about.

A singular scent in and of itself, Fucking Fabulous is without a doubt one-of-a-kind within the perfume industry. Though it's undeniably warm and spicy, its edgy character is afforded by strategic olfactory additions like lavender and leather.

"Fucking Fabulous is a decadent, oriental leather with an intoxicating grip," describes Ford. The name describes this perfume perfectly. It emanates pure class and charms all those around it.

Fragrance Notes: Almond bitter oil, Tonka resinoid, Orris accord, Cashmeran, Leather accord, Clary sage oil.

A happy consumer:

"I absolutely dig this one and after spraying it on myself multiple times in stores I decided to get it. Just the projection is fantastic, you really do feel like you are wearing a good quality TF which smells unique. This isn't a fragrance for everyone, definitely needs to be tested before purchase. Some people seem to dislike it not really sure if its because of the scent itself or maybe the price or the name, for me though I came around loving this fragrance even though didn't really feel anything about it when it first released. I just wish they turned it from the private blend to a signature like they did with ombre leather ( that one is an amazing one as well)."

 Noir Extreme EDP

 Noir Extreme Men Eau De Parfum - best mens tom ford cologne

Noir Extreme Eau De Parfum

We are confident that Noir Extreme is a great value choice. It's a gourmand scent created to evoke memories of childhood and fantasy: citrus, vanilla, and woody key notes blend together perfectly into something wholly unique.

Noir Extreme makes you fall in love. This sexy, sweet perfume is perfect for date night. The powerful, sweet scent is excellent in the winter, but it's nice in warm weather too.

What does it smell like? It's light, sweet, and cake-like. On the other hand, some reviews even describe it as smoky or oriental.
Tom Ford's Noir Extreme offers a lifetime of scent on the skin with notes that create an unforgettable evening fragrance any guy should have in his wardrobe.
Let us not forget that there is also a Noir de Noir fragrance.
Top Note: Mandarin, Neroli, Saffron, Nutmeg, Cardamom

Middle Note: Mastic, Rose, Jasmine, Orange blossom

Base Notes: Woods, Amber, Sandalwood, Vanilla

The Lady which made it her new signature scent:

"Surprised to say I am one of the few woman to review Noir Extreme. This scent is totally unisex but marketing sometimes can throw us off right?

I found this while out with a girlfriend, she decided to sample it on paper thinking it was a womans scent. I fell in love. It was everything I had been looking for, it was spicy and a bit sweet and had the most delectable vanilla dry down ever. I have always had trouble find fragrances for myself because while I am very feminine I cannot stand feminine fragrances. It seems like it is always the same thing over done to a point your head is clogged with florals and overly sweet gourmands. Not this, it stands on its own as a beautiful creamy and spicy potion.

It starts with a lot of nutmeg and sandalwood spice at opening, during dry down it picks up more of the citrus and saffron, then evens out into a beautiful arrangement of sandalwood and creamy amber vanilla. It sexy and so cozy, it makes me think of sitting in front of a fireplace reading a book while wearing a white cozy sweater with black lingerie underneath. In the office it would be an absolute powerhouse on any person who demands attention, and oh would they get it.

Sillage is moderate for me and longevity about 4-6 hours which is not that good for tom ford. I am considering purchasing the body spray since it is cheaper and absolutely dousing myself in it.

I have also compared this to Pour Femme. I love both but in totally different ways. Pour Femme is boozy while this is spicy and creamy. I think both a very versatile but Pour Femme seems more fitting for a night out whereas Noir Extreme is for whenever.

This is my new signature scent!"

Noir for Men EDP

Best Tom Ford cologne, Noir for Men Eau de Parfum

Noir for Men Eau de Parfum

Tom Ford Noir, created in 2012 around a big violet floral note, Tom Ford  fragrance Noir is a long-lasting scent made from the finest ingredients.

The scent starts off smelling powdery and spicy before maturing on the skin to become warm and creamy, thanks to the vanilla and amber notes. The vanilla and amber notes are blended with one another and with the floral and woody scents so that the perfume has a precise and decorative profile.

When it comes to best Tom Ford colognes, no detail is left to chance, and every scent tells a precise story.

The notes in Tom Ford Noir are what make it stand out among the long list of fragrances that never seem to go out of style. It's warm, it's fresh, it's new. The blend of civet, vanilla, nutmeg, patchouli, amber, and civet is what makes this scent so unique.

In the perfume scene Tom Ford Noir, it's already on its way to being one of the most desirable among best Tom ford fragrances on the market.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Verbena, Caraway, Pink pepper, Violet

Middle Notes: Black pepper, Nutmeg, Tuscan iris, Geranium, Bulgarian rose, Clary sage

Base Notes: Opoponax, Amber, Indonesian patchouli leaf, Vetiver, Civet, Vanilla

The confused consumer:

"Not sure how I feel about this one, I didn’t mind it the first time I sprayed it however my partner can’t stand it and said it makes me smell like grandma and I can kind of understand why. It’s quite a mature scent and I mainly get a strong smoky musky incense scent with a hint of vanilla. Every now and then I get a whiff of rose. My overall opinion.. it’s alright, I wouldn’t say it’s a youthful fragrance, like I said it has a very mature scent so more suited to 40+. I don’t rate the performance, the scent projected for the first hour and then for about 3/4 hours was quite close to the skin, after about 5 hours I could barely smell it unless I actually sniffed my skin.

I didn’t mind it, girlfriend hates it, suppose it’s one of those you should try before you buy."

The Charismatic - Grey Vetiver EDP

Tom ford Grey Vetiver Eau De Parfum

Grey Vetiver EDP

This one is a very masculine cologne. Tom Ford calls it "charismatic and provocative."

Tom Ford Grey Vetiver is a grass used in fragrances; it has a green, woody, earthy scent. It is a great ingredient used in a variety of different perfumes, and the scent has a lot of staying power. You can find this in several high-quality perfumes, as well as Tom Ford's fragrances. This is an expensive example, but many of other perfumes use Vetiver, so keep on the lookout for them. 

Grey Vetiver contains citrus and woody key notes and is a great option for those who like a musky scent with a touch of citrus. The fragrance starts off with citrus notes, and as it settles into the dry down, it becomes more woody, with a muskier scent.

This perfume is a summer fragrance, as it is a fresh and warm scent, perfect for those warm sunny days where you can leave the windows down and enjoy the breeze.

The fragrance's woody and musky notes are a classic choice for a warm-weather scent, and it is recommended to anyone who wants something classic sophisticated masculine scent, yet fresh and modern at the same time.

Fragrance Notes: Vetiver, Orange flower, Grapefruit, Aromatic sage, Orris, Nutmeg, Pimento, Amber woods, Oakmoss.

A recommendation:

"Hello dear ones. Yesterday, my Grey Vetiver finally arrived and I could hardly wait to maneuver the first spray on the wrist. Thought, done and smelled.... Wait a minute, you recognize this one from somewhere? EXACTLY, Encre Noir is fruity!
To my nose, I smell a very penetrating, but super fruity natural, grapefruit out of this. Do not get me wrong, I mean that consistently positive! Otherwise, I smell 1:1 Encre Noir, so Encre Noir with fruity grapefruit.
For me, the fragrance is absolutely recommendable, fruity, earthy, woody and fresh. In my opinion, you can wear it at any time of day / night."

Tom Ford Men's Cologne - For Men EDT

For men Eau De Toilette

Tom Ford for Men Eau De Toilette

The Tom Ford for Men cologne is a great choice if you’re looking to buy an affordable perfume. It adapts well to all seasons and smells divine! It is not a super-rich scent, so you can put it on during the day and night.

This classic, nice, and clean Eau de toilet makes a great office scent even though you may have to reapply it during the day. It is more understated than most Tom Ford's fragrances and stays closer to the skin.

Top Notes: Citrus notes, Lemon leaf, Mandarin, Bergamot

Middle Notes: Bergamot, Basil, Ginger, Violet leaf, Orange blossom, Grapefruit blossom, Tobacco, Black pepper

Base Note: Amber, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Vetiver, Oakmoss, Leatherwood, Cypriol.

The French connection:

"This is the second fragrance of the now immensely popular Tom Ford perfumery line. For me this is Tom Ford's tribute to classic French perfumery. The citrus opening is thicker than usual but is still very fresh. Bitter orange peel, mandarin, lemon, ginger and bergamot.

A very elegant opening, for me one of the most interesting of all those citrus starters. In the dry down the scent goes deeper and warmer. The orange blossom and grapefruit take over the fresh opening combined with spices like pepper and some tobacco. In the final dry down the leather comes up with patchouli, oakmoss, amber and wood.

The citrus notes stay until the end so the scent stays fresh. The performance is not huge but very acceptable. What a wonderful creation. This one is deeper than a lot of the later TF Private Blend fragrances that are more linear. Not bad of course, but this one comes from another world and time.

My favorite era of French perfumery in the sixties, seventies and eighties with unforgettable classic complex French designer perfumes (YSL, Dior, Chanel, Cardin, Lagerfeld, Givenchy and so on). Un bel hommage!"

Best Bergamot Colone - luxurious and sensual - Neroli Portofino Aqua EDT

Best Tom Ford cologne Neroli Portofino Aqua EDT

Neroli Portofino Aqua EDT

The luxurious and sensual Tom Ford Private Blend collection fragrance has become a timeless classic.

The Neroli Portofino is a scent that can be worn on any occasion and elicits a gentle and sunny vibe that just gets better with time. It's a blend of bergamot, neroli, and citrus scent. It has a woody floral fragrance that gives off a warm and sensual vibe.

This perfume is a must-have for anyone who likes citrus scents and wants something they can wear at any time.

Based on the sunny notes of bergamot and lavender, this is a fresh floral perfume. Wear it day or night on a sunny spring or summer day.

Top Notes: Tunisian neroli, Italian bergamot, Sicilian lemon, Mandarin, Lavender, Myrtle, Rosemary, Bitter orange

Middle Notes: African orange blossom, Jasmine, Neroli, Pitosporum

Base Notes: Amber, Ambrette seed, Angelica.

Not for him:

"On a tester strip this was a pretty bright citrus scent - kind of green in that none of the base notes were heavy or sweet to take down the zesty almost bitterness of the citrus at the top. To me that makes this perfect for hot weather when you want something bright and light to throw on.

On my skin I don't like pure green citrus scents, so it wasn't for me but that is purely preference. I will say, if you do like this invest in the Neroli Portofino EDP (no Acqua in the name) as this EDT scent dissapears quickly and for the price I assume you don't want to have to reapply all day. I know that citrus heavy fragrances don't tend to last so its not just that this is bad quality or anything like that."

An olfactory Perfume of summer

 Eau de Soleil Blanc

 Eau de Soleil Blanc

Eau de Soleil Blanc

The designer describes Eau de Soleil Blanc as "crisp, radiant, and addictive."

You've always wanted to try this perfume, which is one of the most popular fragrances in the world. This perfume is best for wearing on a night out on the town, especially if you're planning to drink some cocktails. At the same time, it's sophisticated enough that you can wear it on casual, everyday occasions. 

It's the type of perfume that you'll want to spray on multiple times throughout the day so that you can enjoy the fragrance. It's so good that you may even want to try out other fragrances in this signature collection!

Top Notes: Orange bitter peel, Vert de bergamot, Petitgrain bigarade, Caraway seed, Pink peppercorn, Cardamom, Pistachio

Middle Notes: Moroccan orange flower, Rich nectar, Jasmine, Tuberose, Ylang-ylang, Coco de Mer accord

Base Notes: Amber, Vanilla

Not everybody happy:

"This really does have a true beachy feel to it, and not the impression of a beach that so many tropical fruit or aquatic type scents miss the mark on. It reminds me of sand, it feels hot, but with a breeze that's bringing along a whiff of expensive (not Coppertone) sunscreen. I wouldn't categorize this as predominantly citrus, I pick up more on a cardamom nuttiness mixed with the tuberose. Coconut is more of a background player; it's milky rather than sweet/synthetic. Warm but fresh. I like Eau de Soleil Blanc but I don't feel like it's a must have for the price. Coquina by Solstice Scents could work as a cheaper alternative imo. I wouldn't call it a dupe, it's not as creamy and is a tad soapy, but in the same family. If they were siblings, Bronze Goddess would be their cousin."

Tom Ford Perfume - Patchouli Absolu EDP

 Patchouli Absolu EDP - one of best Tom Ford Fragrances - one of top Tom Ford colognes

Patchouli Absolu EDP

Fragrances like Patchouli Absolu ensure that you'll never be the one unfortunate soul in a crowd of hippies, no matter how hard you try. Many men shy away from wearing something traditionally considered feminine, but this fragrance is different. The multi-layered scent blends rich woods and leather fragrances alongside sweet-smelling amber and patchouli.

Patchouli is one of the most classic scents around. It's always been a big favorite among men, but Tom Ford has taken this age-old scent and gives it an extra kick to make it even more masculine scent.

The perfect blend combines a touch of amber, leather, musk, and other savory notes to create something both dashing and utterly intoxicating without being too stereotypical or traditional.

Top Notes: Bay leaf, Rosemary, Moss

Middle Note: Patchouli, Guaiac wood, Cypriol, Violet wood, Cashmere wood

Base Notes: Tonka bean, Amber, Musk, Leather

sweet and spicy - Oud Fleur

Tom Ford Colognes - Oud Fleur

Oud Fleur EDP

Oud Fleur by Tom Ford is an oud that exudes a delicate and softer side than most others. While not as loud or bombastic as other ouds, this fragrance delivers a more refined and sophisticated rendition.

Unlike the heavy and strong-smelling ouds that many perfumes tend toward, Oud Fleur is gentle and subtle. It doesn't overpower with intense and fruity notes like most other fragrances do - instead, it presents a soft floral smell which we think makes Oud Fleur much better to smell day in and day out.

Much the same way in which tobacco and oud in "Tobacco Oud" work together, Fleur is a sweet and spicy fragrance, a vanilla-based welcome gift when you first unbox your bottle. Although it's not as distinctive or immediately Middle Eastern compared to Tobacco Oud, it's still plenty worth trying.

As far as sweet scents go, this fragrance definitely stands out - and wins for uniqueness! It might be slow to enter your circle of favorites, but once it does, it's hard to get enough of its irresistible presence.

Notes: Pimento, Ginger, Cardamom, Rose, Oud, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Osmanthus, Davana, Date, Cinnamon, leather, Ambergris, Castoreum, incense, Styrax, Cistus


Mediterranean Scent - Costa Azzurra Acqua EDT

 Costa Azzurra Acqua EDT

Costa Azzurra Acqua EDT

"Costa Azzurra Acqua fragrance merges cool air and refreshing waters as one. The salty waves of wind and sea collide with the warmth of the sun on the body, tempering its pulsating, red-blooded heat.

An instant hit of exhilarating sea air mixes saltiness with the woody macchia of the beach, a wild tangle of cypress, juniper and myrtle. Like shafts of sunlight on wet skin, lemon's citrus breath brightens the crisp earth of pine cones and needles at the scent's core.

The liquid amber facets of cistus absolute drip with lentisque resinoid, capturing the denouement of the Costa Azzurra Acqua experience, when the water that remains pools on the body's languid muscles." Said Tom Ford.

Azzurra acqua smells like it's been crafted at the start of a clean and refreshing journey through Italy. This is not just any kind of journey, but one that takes you to the shores of the Mediterranean sea in Cagliari, where you catch hints of cypress and juniper in the early morning saltwater breezes that scatter tall myrtle trees.

Notes: Top - Lemon, Juniper berry, Myrtle. Middle - Cypress oil, Pine needles, Pine cones. Base - Cistus, Amber, Lentisque.


She likes it!


"Coming back to this one after a few years. I blind bought this for myself back in 2018 but found it to lean masculine so my boyfriend at the time wore it instead and it was beautiful on him. We broke up and I didn't smell it for years until I met up with a male friend last week and was hit with this beautiful, cold rose. I looked at them and immediately said; "oud fleur?!" It was indeed. This one really is quite stunning and the projection is amazing. I think it's incredibly sexy (a great date night perfume...and incidentally a great winter floral) and I've never come across anything quite like it; it's very distinct. Now I want it again!"

Black Orchid, The First Creation

BLACK ORCHID EDP

Black Orchid

Black Orchid is a vibrant and captivating floral scent. It was the first Tom Ford Fragrance released! This fragrance will make you feel like royalty as it’s rare and brand new, and its intoxicating aura will surely inspire intense feelings of admiration from those around you.

Black Orchid has a gender-neutral appeal that can be worn just as well by men as women can wear it, so rest assured that this perfume can be enjoyed by all who try it!

This perfume is sweet, dark, earthy, boozy with a fair amount of spice. The floral key notes of black truffle, bergamot, black orchid, black plum, noir gourmand accord, and patchouli give this fragrance its distinct aroma.

Top Notes: Jasmine, Gardenia, Blackcurrant, Lemon, Bergamot, Mandarin

Middle Notes: Orchid, Spicy key notes, Fruity notes, Lotus

Base Notes: Vetiver, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Incense, Amber, Chocolate, Vanilla

He is in love with it:

"Some says that this is a challenging scent for their taste while others adore this beast. I could understand that everyone got different taste and that's okay. But this is definitely my style of perfume. Even though I'm a man, I really love gourmand fragrances especially oriental gourmand fragrances. This is sweet intoxicating rich dark deep sensual sexy and super provocative. I love how I could enjoy two different experiences in the same scent DNA. On my skin, the white floral notes of jasmine and gardenia with patchouli are quite dominant. While on clothes, the chocolate, the truffle and the vanilla are more detectable. Love it.
Rating:
Scent-Initial: 10/10 If I could go higher, I would definitely love to go higher because I love the initial so much. So unique. This weird chocolate scent mixed with a rich floral notes are just to die for.
Scent-Dry Down: 10/10 I am still loving it but less than the initial. The dry down of sweet rich floral scent is still superbly gorgeous and sexy.
Longevity: 10/10 There is no mistaken that this could last for a long time on your clothes.
Projection: 8/10. It is not as monstrous as people say it is. But it still performs wonderfully. This will surely grab the attention of your surrounding and people could definitely able to smell you.
Overall: 9.5/10"

exquisite masterpiece - Ombré Leather

 Ombré Leather

Tom Ford Ombré Leather

Ombré leather is one of Tom Ford's best-ever perfumes and is also one of the most complex and exciting.

Ombré Leather is a fine fragrance, bold and grand. With a soothing and melodious black leather, cardamom, and patchouli combination at the top, the addition of the floral notes and spice mix inevitably leads to a scent that imprints you with a tactile sensuality.

Tom created with Ombré Leather an exquisite masterpiece for Tom Ford brand!

Tom Ford is known for having a knack for creating unique perfumes that capture the senses in a way that no one else can.

With an ombre-like pattern of different scents imprinted into one fragrance, Ombré Leather is deep and textural. Yet, with its unique design, it feels soft and sensual.

Tom's fragrances are meant to make the wearer feel different and desired.

Notes: Jasmine, Leather, Patchouli, White moss, Amber


A Spicy fragrance for women and men 

Tobacco Vanille

Best Tobacco Vanille - one of best tom ford colognes

Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

One of the most well-known fragrance notes in the Private Blend collection is Tobacco, and Tom Ford has used in his Tobacco Vanille cologne vanilla to compliment it.
With spicy vanilla and a hint of tobacco, this scent is the epitome of the word private, as one may easily dismiss its potent scent at first without giving it a second thought.
The humblest of the humble pipe tobacco comes together with touches of chocolate, dried fruits, and other surprises throughout the mindfully blended composition.
This scent is for those with discerning tastes who can appreciate subtlety and surprises that don't lose sight of the mission.
This cologne is powerful beyond words. It projects a lot and has a long-lasting effect - more than 12 hours easily, maybe even more! Use caution with an overzealous application, though. 

Notes: Top - Tobacco leaf, Spices. Middle - Tonka bean, Tobacco flower, Vanilla, Cocoa.

Base - Dry fruit accord, Woods.

She is supper happy!

"Warm spicy vanilla that is so luxurious smelling and sexy. On initial spray i couldn’t tolerate it as it was so strong and spicy but after it dried down a little bit, I couldn’t get enough of it. My husbands reaction after it dried down was insane. Such a sexy perfume.

You have to love vanilla and spice to enjoy this one. This is a horrible reference but I kept thinking it smelled like something familiar and it was root beer! Like a speciality root beer with sweet vanilla flavor and hint of spice. Creamy and rich. It’s great for nights out and for dates

This is in my top 5 fragrances of all time and it’ll always be in my collection."

Tom Ford Oud Wood EDP

 Oud Wood

Tom Ford Private Blend Oud Wood 

Tom Ford Oud Wood Private Blend collection is a warm, cozy cologne. It isn't really strong or intense - it's more on the tranquil side than anything else. It has ingredients like oud and woods, which give the impression of an earthy, woodsy scent reminiscent of hiking in the mountains.

Tom Ford Oud Wood cologne smells fresh and contemporary at the same time due to its combination of clean scents made up of oud, woods, vanilla, and cardamom.

Oud wood is a soft, woody fragrance that is very creamy and delicious. Because of its powdery smell projecting power, however, is considered moderate at best, but that is probably why they created this fragrance in the first place - it is one of Tom Ford fragrances that can be worn almost all year round.

Top Notes: Rosewood, Cardamom, Chinese pepper

Middle Notes: Oud wood, Sandalwood, Vetiver
Base Notes: Tonka bean, Vanilla, Amber.


He is not sure:

"It's fairly linear and doesn't develop much. From beginning to end it's this very soft, elegant, woody smell - possibly Oud, but the softest and inoffensive Oud you've ever smelled, almost as if somebody took Oud from the forest and put it inside a washing machine for 3 days to get rid of anything that could be remotely offensive. It's less "Oud" and more "Wood", if that makes sense. Slightly spicy, not overly so though. For some reason it reminds me of a well dressed guy, sitting in an old fashioned library with a lot of old books and wooden furniture, with a worn but high quality leather bag with him.

Overall a very pleasant scent, great entry fragrance into the niche (or just Tom Ford) world and easy to wear. My main issue is the weak performance as it sits close to the skin after a few hours, and, of course, the price. If it was cheaper and I had an actual use for it, I'd probably buy it. However, since I already have Ombre Leather for feeling fancy and Tuscan Leather for feeling more dirty, both with better performance and in some cases cheaper prices, I find Oud Wood a bit redundant."


Perfume For Women, But Men Love It Orchid Soleil

Orchid Soleil

Tom Ford Orchid Soleil

Tom Ford fragrances are always an amazing creation, and his Orchid Soleil Fragrance is no exception.
This one will make you feel like you've finally gotten to enjoy your much-needed vacation - trust us when we say there is no better way to start off the summertime activities than with a "Sun To Tan."
Orchid Soleil  is a fragrance for women, but it has gained popularity among men. This fragrance blends floral notes of tuberose, lily, and orchid. Moreover, pink pepper, vanilla, and patchouli play the lead role in this suntan-like smell.

This experience is opened up with a floral whirlwind, which includes rich and heavy notes of tuberose. Light touches of white pepper are present, as well as woodsy cypress that isn't very noticeable.

The heart develops floral notes, specifically white floral with the spider lily and the orchid. The base combines vanilla paste with a chestnut cream impression. A soft patchouli note prevents the sweetness from becoming too cloying.

Top Notes: Bitter orange, Pink pepper, Cypress
Middle Notes: Red spider lily, Tuberose
Base Notes: Vanilla, Chestnut cream, Patchouli, Orchid

He loves it!

"A beautiful tuberose knockout. The dry-down does have an unexpected nuance of "tortillas" but I only detect this slightly.
I honestly feel this should have been a tad sweeter with the "whipped cream note."

I do see similarities to Fracas and Madonna's Truth or Dare. Those have a stronger "warm spicy" accord than Orchid Soliel, in my opinion."

Arabic Nights - Private Blend Tobacco Oud

 Tobacco Oud amazing fragrance

Tom Ford Private Blend Tobacco Oud

The smell of the Tobacco Oud Private Blend signature collection draws inspiration from Arabic passion and traditions.

In addition, this Tom Ford fragrance has more than just a hint of sweetness from incense and patchouli. The woody notes remain in the background supporting the other notes, but they also provide this perfume with a kick or a little something to make it stand out, if you will.

Tom Ford Private Blend fragrance collection Tobacco Oud has an exciting and flirty vibe. This aroma is for special evenings when you head out to paint the town red. From the first whiff, others around you will be captivated and take notice of your presence!

Notes: Oud, Tobacco, Coriander, Cistus, Labdanum, Cedar, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Roasted tonka bean, Castoreum.

A 10/10!

"One of the best perfumes I've ever smelled. The smokey oud and tobacco are the most prominent notes for me and it's the best smokey smell so far that I've found. The whiskey is not really noticeable for me. It's not harsh, but it's a creamy and smooth smokey scent for me. I'm actually surprised how this is such a divisive fragrance when I've smelled much harsher and rougher wood, tobacco and smoke in frags and this one is so easy to smell in my opinion (might be a new formulation). I love this DNA and it's my favourite Tom Ford now, which is saying something as TF is in my top 3 houses. Perfect for the cold and winter. 10/10"

Tom Ford has had a lot of unexpected combinations within his career. He is known for taking risks and not being afraid of them at all. One thing we really like about Mr. Ford is the fact that he’s very bold with mixing things up as he did for Tuscan Leather by adding raspberries to both leather and some other rough materials, or as he did in mixing smoky oud wood with a salty sea accord just before speaking about Oud Minérale.

Tom Ford's legendary perfectionism and eye for detail ensure quality control. "It's well known in the industry that he is incredibly hands-on with the development of his colognes, and I think that shows," says Fairley.
