    Re: Tom Ford is going down

    Whilst I see where you are coming from, the typical TF fragrance buyer will be discerning and no doubt 'self-aware'. A subtle change to a product to make it more cost-effective is one thing,...

    Re: Tom Ford is going down

    It's not much of a strategy if people are - rightfully - going to assume that TF is exploiting its customers by cutting corners on packaging whilst maintaining high/exclusive prices. What a joke!...

    Yes, I wore it today and this time I tried the 'walk through' method with one spray. This definitely suits the fragrance! The more even application meant that I was not getting lingering whiffs of...

    Rive Gauche - my troubled thoughts.

    I have been testing out my freshly bought bottle of YSL's Rive Gauche Pour Homme and although I certainly appreciate it, I am in two minds. When I slip on my suit in the mornings and spray once to...

    Thank you very much for your helpful post TJ. I shall certainly try Perfumed Court first and speak with Mr. Beers should I decide to take the plunge.

  9. Help me find Guerlain’s Spiritueuse Double Vanille...

    From what I have read on BN, this could be my dream fragrance as I am a fan of Vanilla fragrances. The only problem is that I cannot find this frag anywhere - is it something of a rarity or...

    Hmm, it seems that TF Extreme is pretty unique then! I have sampled Black Orchid and whilst I love its dirty fruityness, I do find that it is a touch too sweet for me - it all gets a bit burnt...

    Re: Bay Rum - wtf???

    GFT's Bay Rum is an absolute classic. Nothing better than a super close shave followed by a splash of Bay Rum to really awaken the senses. GFT's version gets the clove just right in my opinion,...
  16. Re: Tom Ford Extreme - love it, but would like more power!

    I have heard great things about TV - would you say that they are similar fragrances (TFE certainly has prominent notes of Tobacco and Vanilla, especially in its dry-down)?
  17. Tom Ford Extreme - love it, but would like more power!

    Hello all, nice to be back posting here again!

    I have pretty much made TF Extreme my signature scent. However, as much as I love TFE's composition, the staying power and sillage are quite pathetic...
