Tom Ford for Men is THE perfect office fragrance. A fragrance only I can smell and no one else. The first spray is ginger with citrus, very nice. The dry down is soft tobacco/citrus/spicy. I have to agree it is not, by all means, a power bomb of a fragrance. It does not project very well, but the important thing is that I can smell it.
So disappointed by this being a huge fan of TF and grey vetiver. The fragrance disappears after 30 minutes, literally the worst longevity I've ever experienced. If it wasn't for this I'd give it a thumbs up.
There's some citrus at the beginning but there's some caloney aqua wood afterwards that reminds me of so many modern scents. It's a no. It's cheaper and better to buy Polo Blue if you like this style. Even better would be EROLFA or Millisime Imperial. There's no need for this fragrance.
I do love this one.
It has been my signature scent for about 6 years, and has always been in my (meagre) collection.
However, just recently I tend to find that it does not seem to last and project like it used to? reformulated perhaps? not sure.
The opening also seems a bit more chemical citrus than before too, not quite as smooth.
Maybe it's just me?
I still offer thumbs up for this as it does smell great, but the longevity seems to let it down now.
A pretty fragrance – natural smelling and rather retro I think. The opening is bright, lively, straightforward, and proportioned – basically citrus with a perfect amount of basil and violet leaf to keep it from citrus boredom. The heart adds more complexity with a fuller citrus of orange - grapefruit, pepper, and tobacco for depth and breadth. The heart, like the opening, is pleasant and non-synthetic – it, too, is notable for its proportion and balance.
The base is an agreeable amber, cedar, patchouli. Oakmoss is listed in the pyramid but I don’t smell it. Again, the accord is non-synthetic, extremely pleasant, and beautifully balanced… I’m thinking that maybe Tom Ford for Men is TOO balanced: It smells really good, but it’s not to-die-for.
I feel that this fragrance is more than adequate – very nice smell, excellent ambiance, normal projection, almost normal longevity as a sillage maker, very good longevity as a skin scent. Extraordinary balance and structure, but I can’t find a hook – there’s not anything that really grabs me even though I appreciate its competence. It’s the Honda Civic of the men’s fragrance world, except that Civics get much better mileage. Since it’s not one of Tom Ford’s exclusives, it’s reasonably priced. Me personally?… I prefer a more challenging scent.
