With the Tom Ford Winter Floral fragrance collection, the designer explores the dark and forbidden sides of perfumery’s most treasured blooms while highlighting four of his existing Private Blend scents: Jasmin Rouge, Café Rose, Oud Fleur and Noir de Noir.
“These florals are dark and rich, but done in a new way. You should be able to smell them on your skin the next morning,”said Ford.
Roses, gardenias, hydrangeas, peonies — florals tend to carry a certain seasonality in both their décor and in fragrance. Tom Ford highlights four existing scents that explore the dark and forbidden sides of perfumery’s most treasured blooms.
These floral fragrances are untraditional in nature, featuring luxurious blends that unveil a dark edginess to traditional florals such as Jasmin Sambac and Clary Sage Oil (JASMIN ROUGE), Bulgarian Rose Absolute and Coffee Essence (CAFÉ ROSE), Turkish Rose Oil and Oud (OUD FLEUR) and Black Rose, Saffron and Black Truffle (NOIR DE NOIR).
Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge is a voluptuous, saturated, spiced floral presented in a
deep-red bottle. Two bespoke ingredients, Sambac Jasmine Sepals Absolute and Clary Sage Essence, are brought into unexpected union.
Tom Ford’s darker take on the classic rose fragrance, Tom Ford Café Rose descends into a hidden labyrinth, where roses’ fine breeding gives way to darker pleasures.
Tom Ford Oud Fleur explores the mystique of oud in all its dimensions, including the aspect of prestige and age.
A dark chypre oriental with a dark and indulgent character, Tom Ford Noir de Noir blends rich, feminine florals with masculine, earthy notes.
Neither completely feminine nor masculine, Tom Ford’s floral fragrances are truly dual gender.
