This is not a brand I can afford usually and so I is one that I ask for on Birthdays and other present giving occasions. This is a really luxurious brand in my view and one worth paying for as the perfumes last well on me and they are quite unusual fragrances.

~*#~*#~*#~ ABOUT TOM FORD ~*#~*#~*#~

This is a fairly new brand founded by Thomas Carlyle “Tom” Ford . Tom is an an American fashion designer, film director, screenwriter, and film producer. The fashion brand of his name was founded in 2006. Prior to this Tom had been creative director at both Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.

His fashion is luxury and well beyond my means so I have to enjoy the luxury of the perfumes .

Two Oscar-nominated films A Single Man and Nocturnal Animals . Some people just have too much talent and it should be more equally shared round!!

I not only love the perfumes of this brand but also admire the fact that he backed Obama and refused to dress Melania Trump!

His fashions have been chosen by Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, Daniel Craig, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Julianne Moore and Hugh Jackman. He also designed Daniel Craig’s suits for Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre.

#~*#~*#~ PACKAGING ~*#~*#~*#~

th

This has quite a unisex look to the packaging and not feminine and girly at all. The box is black with gold text and the box has a slight texture of lines vertically down the box.

The bottle is also very unisex looking and is a simple black glass bottle with a texture of lines going vertically on the bottle. The spray dispenser is hidden under a large gold top which also as the vertical lines as a texture on it.

It is simple and classy but not that different or special in my view.

#~*#~*#~ THE NOTES IN THIS ~*#~*#~*#~

The top notes in this are : Bergamot, Bitter orange, ginger and mandarin orange
The middle notes are: rose, jasmine, orange blossom and kulfi – not seen that in a perfume before!
The base notes are: vanilla, amber, sandalwood and mastic or lentisque which I have never heard of before.

#~*#~*#~ MY VIEWS ~*#~*#~*#~

The bottle is practical and quite easy to hold and use but it doesn’t really inspire me as a unique or creative design. The black glass keeps the contents away from the light which damages perfumes. I keep mine in a drawer anyway rather than on my dressing table so that doesn’t bother me.

I absolutely love this perfume it is different, a nice string scent and it lasts well on me.

This initial scent I get is strongly spicy and the orange combined with ginger is not sweet, it has a great intense hit or fresh and gingery. After around ten minutes this becomes more floral and the sweeter , headier aromas of rose and jasmine blend beautifully with the orange and ginger. It is exotic and eastern and takes me to Asia and the wonderful spicy and exotic fragrances I experience there.

After around an hour or so these exotic aromas are deeper with amber and sandalwood really cming through. The kulfi of the mid notes is also a very exotic Asian sort of aroma and reminds me of souks and bazaars in the Middle east.

This is a strong perfume that really gives good bang for the bucks you pay. It has great sillage as so many people comment when I wear this. It has wonderful lasting power as I can smell this hours after I apply this and I can smell it on any clothing like scarves and coats for days afterwards.

I think this must use high quality oils as it does really last such a long time compard with other high end perfumes that are similarly priced.

If you are a fan of unisex perfumes and exotic heady spicier aromas then do go and try this. It isn’t cheap but you need only a small spray and that will last you an entire day.

I do buy a lot of middle eastern perfumes as I love these exotic aroma and I find they last so much better than expensive high end brands and this reminds me of these Middle Eastern perfume oils I first experienced in the souks in the Middle East but I now buy on line. This has similar evocative aroma but with just that extra depth as this develops and changes over time where the Middle eastern oils tend to stay the same scent through their life on my skin .

#~*#~*#~ WHAT IS AN EAU DE TOILETTE AND EAU DE PARFUM?#~*#~*#~

In order to create perfumes and EDT pure perfume is dissolved in a solution of 98% alcohol and 2% water. EDT is 10% perfume oil while eau de parfum is 25% or higher hence the latter lasts better on people and is generally stronger smelling too.

#~*#~*#~ WHERE TO BUY AND PRICES #~*#~*#~

This is not a cheap perfume so shop round to see if you ca find a cheaper version if you can. Debenhams has 30 ml for £56, 50 ml for £79 and 100 ml for £112
Boots has just the 100 ml size for £112
The fragrance shop again only has the 100 ml size for 50 p less at £111.50

Prices seem pretty contrast but maybe a little less on ebay if you want to risk that.

#~*#~*#~ KEEPING PERFUMES TRUE #~*#~*#~

It is not a good idea to leave your perfumes on your dressing table out of their boxes even if they do look beautiful as sun light makes them lose their scent and any heat will make them evaporate. I keep mine in a drawer in a cool place and that way the scent lasts well and stays true.

#~*#~*#~ WEARING YOUR CHOSEN SCENT #~*#~*#~

Never rub perfume into pulse points, let it dry naturally and it will last longer on you.

Spray your scarf and clothes and the scent will last really well on them and you can enjoy the aroma for days.

Try spray a little perfume down your cleavage and then as you warm up you will be able to enjoy your scent all day long.

~*#~*#~ WOULD YOU BUY THIS AGAIN ? #~*#~*#~

Ye I certainly would. It is my kind of scent that lasts well and takes me to exotic places for a lot less than the airfare.

It is a scent that will appeal to ladies who like more unisex aromas and who like stronger, more exotic aromas rather than sweet and floral ones . It is a more modern aroma not a classic like Chanel No 5 and in my view may appeal to a wide age range but only to those who like this kind of scent. If you like the sweet, light, fresh scents then I think this one is not for you. If you like Comme des garcon scents then give this one a try.
