    Question Your Favorites from the Tom Ford Private Blends

    Here's hoping this poll hasn't been done already (I checked and didn't see one).

    Please choose your top 3 from this collection.

    Tobacco Vanille - smells just like vanilla cigarillos - very nice

    I didn't like:

    Japon Noir: Doesnt smell black, or like Japan at all - marketing trash
    Tuscan Leather - Smells nice, but the synthetic leather accord gets annoying

    Sorry, I only tried 3 and they were underwhelming for the price they ask.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Amit and petruccijc: the one-two-three-combo of Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather and Moss Breches can't be beat.

    Having said that, if I only had to live with these three, I would achingly miss the ever fascinating Velvet Gardenia.

    Tuscan Leather
    Tobacco Vanille
    Oud Wood

    Tuscan Leather is definitely my favourite from this line. Even as an expensive niche fragrance, I have been smelling this scent on a lot of people here in Vancouver. I guess it has generated some kind of fan base.

    Tobacco Vanille is right behind TL, but something about this one just comes off as being a bit one dimensional. With that being said, I still think it's a great scent, and is up there with the great modern tobacco frangrances.

    I can relate the opening of TL is a bit harsh. If you can check out Montale's Aoud Leather. It has a similar vibe but not as harsh and it smells more like real leather (to my nose).

    Ah man! I thought this was one of the mainstream ones, along with White Patchouli.

    I was inspired to do this post after reading your reviews, Mike, so I should have included Champaca Absolute! I even had Grey Vetiver in there until I read a bit further and saw that it wouldn't be part of the "Private Blend" line.

    I thought Black Orchid was, whereas Black Orchid - "Voile de Fleur" wasn't.

    I've been meaning to get into the whole Tom Ford scene, thanks for the poll.

    Can someone do a Guerlain Poll as well? A bit longer, I'd do it myself if I knew how to make polls

    I too am intrigued by the entire Tom Ford line and right now I am testing for the very first time Tobacco Vanille. It's really good! The only problem I have with it is, that I would rather not have the Tobacco in there because I'm not a huge fan of it in fragrances, but then that would negate the frag completely! The vanilla though is great.

    I've only tried a few ( Tobacco Vanille; Velvet Gardenia; Tuscan Leather; Moss Breches; Noire de Noire ). Of those, I liked Moss Breches, and loved Tobacco Vanille and Noire de Noire. Unfortunately, Noire de Noire has zip longevity on me.

    My favorite TF is Black Orchid, however.

    The only TF I wear is White Patchouli, and it is not a Private Blend.

    My top 3 for now would be

    Tuscan Leather
    Ambre Absolute
    Oud Wood

    Tobacco Vanille used to be in my top 3, but Ambre Absolute & Oud Wood pushed it out from there.
