    Default 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 on my skin. Can anyone recommend a similar fragrance with a little more 'oomph'?

    Many thanks,

    S.

    I feel exactly the same way and wrote about it last week. Etreme at 125$ for 50ml and TV 260$ 100ml was easy choice for me. I agree extreme smells great, but doesn't last. TV last very long. I will be interested what others write. Someone sugested back to black; I may buy travel size of it blind.
    I post lots from my I phone so if this looks like a text message that's why ( :

    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)?

    Yes but TV is much much sweeter than TFE so its your call

    Have a hit of Ford's Black Orchid - there are a few shared accords with TFE that may just be the ones you're craving on a larger scale! many male BNers (myself included) wear and swear by Black Orchid.

    I find the original to be quite strong, with just one spray. However, when I was a "newbie," there were several frags that I thought were too weak, which I now think are too strong, so keep in my that this perception can change over time.

    I've never smelled it, but I've read some compare Olivier Durbano's Black Tourmaline to it. Unfotunately, I find TFE WAY too smoky for my own tastes.

    Now, that I mention the smokiness, try Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque as well.

    I enjoy extreme, but agree with the comment pertaining to Black Orchid (EDP). It lasts forever and is a silliage beast on me.

    I agree with the comments on Extreme. It's a lovely scent, but it's a little too weak.

    I also think Black Orchid is a *stunning* fragrance and there are some similarities with Extreme, but (don't shoot me for this) it just seems a bit too feminine for my liking. I know it really shouldn't matter, but that's just my honest opinion.

    Nowhere. I've just always thought "extreme" fragrances are a little silly. Prove that it's extreme by increasing the concentration, instead of telling me "Hey, this one's EXTREME! TO THE MAX!"

    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 blackcurrent candy like in the middle.

    I will have to try and get my hands on a sample of TV as that sounds like the closest match thus far.

    I absolutely love Tom Ford Extreme - and get good longevity from it.

    I also adore Tom Ford Black Orchid, and find I get more longevity from it then Tom Ford Extreme.
