I initially gave this one a thumbs down. I recently tried this one again and I apprecitate it a bit more. The basenotes and drydown is decent and I would actually wear this. If I could get it at a cheaper price, I might purchase it.

Im sorry to say but there's nothing actually unique here, but only sweet tobacco that smells a bit generic when dries down. Weak lasting power, timid sillage and projection. Try before you buy. It does even get close to TF Private Blend line.
Eh, nothing special with this one. Doesn't smell very strong, not much projection or sillage. A very ordinary scent with nothing to really distinguish it . Got a sample and won't be buying a bottle.
A citrus too note that is never really night or refreshing and a bit on the dull side, but paired with an interesting ginger and spice note that gives it some depth. A wood note in the base note adds to the substance, but overall this is not a very exciting composition. Acceptable silage and projection and lasting over two hours on me.
a very generic citrus and spice fragrance. Poor longevity. Nothing special. Doesn't smell bad, just gets lost in a sea of similar scents.
A bit of M7 inside, a bit Gucci Envy too but altogether it's not a copy of either. Stylish for sure, masculine too but to me it just lacked longevity and projection. This type of frag, or to express myself better, frag of this style, should be much more potent. Albeit the style I like, let's put aside the strength it lacked on me, something else bothered me that I decided to pass it on from my collection. It seemed almost as an excess in my collection that was not as large as it is today.
I am new to the fragrance world, so forgive me if my early reviews don't mention top notes, base notes, the "heart," etc. I tried Tom Ford for Men yesterday, and it was an interesting experience. The scent started strong. I liked it, but it was "heavy." It felt warm to me...a good scent for a cold winter's day. Then I had my wife smell it, and she commented on the citrus and how it would make for a great summer scent. I did not smell what she did...and she did not smell what I did. This is the first time we've been so polar opposite of each other in an opinion on a cologne. As the day wore on, I liked it more and more. I found myself putting my wrist up to my nose every half-hour or so just for a refresher. In all...the scent remained strong for over ten hours, and it wasn't until around hour eleven that I could tell that it was fading. Even into hours twelve and thirteen, a ghost of the scent remained (and I only sprayed my wrist once). I am 33...and my first impression was that Tom Ford for Men was for a man slightly older than me. Not by much...maybe 35-40. As it cooled, I liked it more. I think I could wear it, but it would need to be for formal events. I really like the scent, but right now it's in my MAYBE list as I give it a few more tries (I have two samples of it).
interesting frag, but extremely poor sillage and duration
I am pleased with this fragrance. On initial spray you get the heavy citrus, orange vibe, which transfers into a more lemony style as the smell forms with your skin (my skin atleast) Then begins the black pepper, the ginger and a hoard of other small hints. This really is a fragrance with many levels. The projection is not one like Amen, but its a subtle, classy, close fragrance that could be smelt with a hug, but not a handshake. Longevity is OK, i seem to get about 6 hours before it goes but have been complemented at around 5 hours so it must still linger well. I'd say a definite try. If you have a relatively deep pocket a definite buy for your collection.
Which oldie did Tom Ford have in mind when designing his eponymous mens fragrance? Was it Minotaure or New York? Perhaps it was Roma Uomo or Chanels Pour Monsieur Concentrée. With all of these Tom Ford shares an orange/amber structure. For this reason I am somewhat disappointed with this bottle. Its derivative yet not as good as any of them (with the possible exception of Roma, which might be its closest doppelganger). The packaging promises an upscale if not formal fragrance with the flat, fluted glass bottle and straightforward labeling. To present a fruity, sweet outré juice within is either commendable or crass. I am ambivalent about the fragrance on almost every front. It doesnt smell bad but its not especially classy either. I admire Fords Renaissance man credentials but this fragrance is aspirational yet banal thus veering uncomfortably toward pretentiousness.
