Plum Japonais fragrance notes

Reviews of Plum Japonais

Underrated masterpiece. One of my favorites from TF.
24th October, 2018
A sweet, sensual and laid back experience, Plum Japonais has fruity and spice elements that add excitement to this exotic EdP from Tom Ford.

The plum blossom is fresh and fruity, with green piny goodness dominated by the cypress and fir, the bright and dusty cinnamon opening things up along with the earthy saffron. Sweetness is provided by amber, vanilla, and styrax, but not to the point of making PJ a bona fide oriental. Cedar adds its distinct woody starchiness that accents things, not dominating.

PJ has decent longevity and okay sillage, and overall it has a slowly expressive, mysterious depth to it which hearkens me to close my eyes and explore.

This is quite nice, I agree with all the reviews stating this is quite subtle, however this is a nice change from beast mode.
The Quality in this is in the overall smell. The longevity is Above average.
Nice skin scent from the 2hr mark and stays like a sweet woody smell for quite a while after the 2hr mark, so I think this is bottle worthy for a pleasant lighter change.

Overall Scent 8.5 - 10
Longevity 7 - 10
Sillage 5 - 10

A much better version of Japon Noir, in my opinion
Not something I would wear every day, but I can definitely appreciate it
Decant / split worthy, but not full bottle worthy
For all the people complaining about longevity, I don't get that -- It lasts quite a long time for me, it's just that the bright plum notes you get in the opening die off pretty quick...It's the opening that goes away, but the base stays for a good amount of time.

It’s a good fragrance, even if it’s too masculine for me. It’s full of dry spices and incense. There’s a lot of amber as well. I don’t get a lot of plum, except in the first minutes. It could be a bit sweeter for a real unisex fragrance, and smell more like prune. Sillage and longevity are not good enough. Very subtle.

In spite of its solidity of structure, Plum Japonais gives the impression of being delicate and even subdued. The combination of plum, saffron, and cinnamon in the opening is eminently sniffable. I have debated with myself as to whether or not I should call it “gourmand”… If it is gourmand, it’s not sticky sweet kind; rather, it’s more like a restrained but very sweet floral note, probably it’s the plum blossom at the heart that makes it so strongly floral. On my first couple of testings I thought the immortelle to be judiciously restrained. With subsequent testings, the immortelle came though quite well… and a beautiful presentation of immortelle it is – it counterbalances the plummy sweetness successfully. The base continues the sweetness with its vanilla and amber, and adds a bit of oud to the accord, but I agree that the oud should exhibit more presence in order to balance the continuing sweetness of the fragrance.

At times in the opening and into the heart, the plum / immortelle accord achieves an almost painful beauty. But as soon as the immortelle fades, the plum delivery no longer holds the interest it once had, and the base, though pleasant, just doesn’t continue the excellence that preceded it. I think that the decline of the drydown might not have happened if the oud had just a touch stronger presence in the base.
