  1. Which is the best Private Blend Tom Ford?

    I'm thinking of buying a Tom Ford Private Blend perfume but I'm not sure which one. I was wandering if you could tell me which of the Tom Ford's has better review so I can make up my own mind.

    I am tore between Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Vanille, Noir de Noir and Italian Cypress

    I sampled the latest Neroli Portofino last week and I enjoyed it. There is a very distinctive hight orangey note on it.

    I'm not often seduced by bottles but this Neroli is a piece ...

    "Men hate attention." Especially single men who... well, you know... who don't want to be too lonely. It has long been known that men are so shy and reticent that we simply must hide from view and stay below the radar. Otherwise we will attract attention and be eaten by wild beasts... or worse!
