    Default New Tom Ford Private Blend - Azuree Lime

    The Neiman Marcus Tom Ford consultant sent out an email today mentioning a new Private Blend called Azuree Lime. It is described as "a delightful scent with old world charm."

    I searched the web and found no mentions of it.

    Anyone out there know anything about it?

    Are you sure the name is Azuree Lime? Not Azure Lime?

    I mean, I know Tom Ford Beauty fragrances are made by Estee Lauder but would Erin Lauder have allowed Tom to so blatantly rip off of one of EL's classic scents so easily? Especially considering Lauder released Azuree Soleile Eau Fraiche when Tom Ford was collaborating with Lauder.

    Hmmmmmm....

    After being totally underwhelmed by every private blend besides Tobacco Vanille, I won't expect much, but I'm a lime nut, and this will probably be long lasting. Hopefully it doesn't have the out-of-pace dim/dark notes used in his Neroli, or the bad ciel-esque-synthetics used in montale's aromatic lime. If it's better than Truefitt's without being sweeter, he gets my money. Thanks djron91

    When TF was in London in summer last year to launch Bois Marocain he did mention that he was developing a lime fragrance that would initially be exclusive to his Los Angeles store. He does seem to suggest it will be very summery! Here's the article -

    I just saw a seller on ebay selling a mini of Tom Ford Azure Lime. Unfortunately he's selling it as a part of a lot of 21 mini's comprising the entire Tom Ford Private Blend releases.
    As per the description, this will be released in May.

    I am definitely looking forward to this.

    Honestly I had spent the past 3 hours or so sniffing and sampling but from what I can remember it was very nice. Most of the TF Private Blend line to me is very much aimed at the older crowd (35+) and me being 20 I'm not keen on wearing much of it, but this one I really enjoyed. It was very very crisp and would go well in a nice summer day with a light application. I think it would also layer very well with lots of other fragrances but again this is just off of memory and I don't have the best of noses sorry

    Got an address? Is it on the Tom Ford site or through a retailer?

    Ya go on the website and email them.. since they're much more expensive than other frags.. you may wanna try to be more convincing because I'm not 100% they give them to everyone -- I simply said that I'm a long time wearer of the original Tom Ford ever since its release in 2007 it's been my top shelf fragrance, and that I'd like to try several other ones by them before making my final purchase. The lady emailed me and verified my address and also asked if I was interested in trying the new lime one and I said absolutely. So just go on the site, look for the "contact us" feature.. send a message, odds are you'll hear back in 2-3 business days.. it may go to your spam folder as it did mine. That been said.. there are lots of sites where you can do this, I also had luck with the Kenzo site. I was actually planning on making a new thread based on sites I've had success with the samples with -- but after I actually received them.. this way everyone is satisfied.

    Please use the search function instead and look for 'free samples.'

    ^^ Thanks. I've read through the sample threads and all they seem to talk about is Mugler. I just searched "Tom Ford Samples" to no avail. Don't worry it won't be a bad thread

    Look here, found by searching free samples. Feel free to add your new info there. It serves as a good, central place for sample information.

    Emailed 'em today and got a quick response. We'll see how soon they send them out. Wish I had known they'd do that before I bought a few samples... oh well. Can't have too many, I guess.

    I got a sample in the mail this morning from the AMAZING TF rep at the Las Vegas Neiman Marcus. She wrote it as Azuree Lime (two e's) - so I am not sure which way that will go.

    First reaction is a clean lime scent that is good for summer. I could imagine mixing this with Creed Virgin Island Water and going for the ultimate Summer Cocktail.
    For the first hour - it is reminding me of a few different department store designer frags - nothing as exceptional at the other private blends I love - so I was afraid it would be like the ill fated white musks.
    Then after the second hour - I noticed a change. I am not good at identifying the notes - but it started going EXTRA clean - a la the new Serge Lutens - but with a twist. At this point, I am thinking it would be a good blend with the way KYlie Minogue Inverse for Men develops after the first hour.

    It's becoming more interesting over time. It is definitely one that is worth sampling. For those who like cleaner / fresher scents - this will be a good one. For those like me who like things stronger and more intense - it might be a grow to love kind of thing.

    Ron, have you sampled the Limes from Truefitt/Trumper/Penhaligons ? If so, how would you compare?

    Have a large roll-on sample from my NM Ford rep.
    My take on it is the lime IS there but not as 'bright' as I would want - however, the lime does increase as it progresses

    (full disclosure = yes I DO know it's TFord so take the progression part with a grain of salt.)

    Overall - it's a pretty subdued scent but mixes well in the end with the reported oak notes.

    This should be acceptable for summer but it isn't gonna rock your world all by itself.
    On its own, it dries down to a SLIGHTLY limey wood. Kind of decent but . . . .

    I layered it with Hermes elixir des Merveilles I already own while I was at the store thinking the oak notes in the two would work - that's one damn fine mix.

    5 compliments from women between 2 & 6pm. I'll have a double straight up please.

    Gonna try and hit up NM in Vegas tomorrow to catch a whiff. I totally forgot last week when I was at the mall. If they dont give me a sample I'll punch them in the nose and go to the Tom Ford boutique at City Center. If they dont give me a sample I'll scream obscenities in Hebrew and they'll respect me because I'll be wearing a suit and I'll be well groomed because I'm getting my haircut. Then I'll go to the Mandarin Oriental for tea time and relax

    I so want to try this one. The rep online emailed me right back when I inquired... but I haven't gotten anything yet. It's been a couple of weeks. Hopefully soon.
