    Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford

    I have the feeling that Tom Ford, faces each new perfume as a supplement of his fashion line and not as an independent creation, which is not necessarily bad. This time, I think, the goal was to match his elegant and well tailored morning office suits with a classic and noble, daywear scent. The problem begins with the selection of Vetiver to become the main attraction of the show. Very few Vetiver scents managed to get my attention in the past and this is not one of them. Some things simply canít go much further and if you mess with them trying to be classic and innovative at the same time, you end up with just another clean and fresh, unoffensive masculine targeting the Eau Sauvage fans . Works fine, but itís so predictable. I can recall at least a dozen of nice masculines with a sharp citrus opening and a milder woody aromatic heart with good longevity and low projection, just like Grey Vetiver. Tom Ford brand name is just not enough to make pay for it, though I am sure it is for many others.
