    Smile Tom Ford Violet Blonde

    I think this may have been mentioned before as a rumour, but my local SA here in Dublin today actually told me today herself that this new fragrance is coming in September. She doesn't know anything about it other than the name and that it'll come out around the same time as the wide release of Lavender Palm and both will coincide with a new make-up range and male grooming products also. *phew*

    Hmmmm.... another violet - since there is Black Violet. It will be interesting to try.

    Although I know some will automatically dismiss it/pass on it since it is "not French".

    While many of you gents say "nay," there's probably a good reason. Unless someone goofed on the spelling, "Violet Blonde" is meant exclusively for women. It's either got a vanilla note, or something equally "white" or "yellow/gold." My guess, offhand, would be a "white" note as that would probably go best with Violet and white notes are generally quite feminine.

    Anyone can wear any fragrance they want to - there is no such thing as "exclusively". If people want to place restrictions on what they wear, or God forbid even smell, then that is their choosing - but there are no set rules.

    Well put!

    Whilst Violet Blonde is the new women's scent being added to the Signature Collection, this most definitely does not mean it is meant to be exclusively for women. The labeling of fragrances being for women or for men, especially in the Tom Ford brand, is more of just a label as to whom it is being marketed to more.

    Take Black Orchid for example, marketed as being a women's fragrance......yet here in Australia it is actually purchased more by men (to where themselves) than by women, and is also the No.1 selling Tom Ford fragrance here. And on the other hand, you would be surprised by the amount of women I see purchasing 'Tom Ford for Men' and 'Grey Vetiver' for themselves. It is personal choice with no boundaries or rules.

    Now, now, don't get your panties in a bunch, Mister! I was doing a little verbal detective work and responding to "hednic" and "dullah's" comments, and on the possible marketing plan for this particular fragrance.

    I never said you couldn't wear whatever you wanted, and I don't believe that in the first place. I was just saying that if some men are saying "no thanks," the reason will probably be because of the white note. Not all men feel the way you do. I wear men's fragrances, so I would never EVER tell you, or even imply, that you couldn't wear what you wanted.

    From fragrantica.com:

    Tom Ford has announced the release of his Signature Collection of fragrances by the end of this year. This collection represents a part of his latest make - up line. Of the three expected perfumes, the first one will be released in early September. It is named Violet Blonde and it is based on powdery notes of violet and iris. Two other upcoming fragrances are Jasmin Rouge and Santal Blush.

    Violet Blonde, glamorous and sophisticated, opens with violet leaf, Italian mandarin and pink pepper. The centerpiece of the composition consists of Tuscan iris absolute, Tuscan orris butter, Sambac jasmine and sampaquita. The base is home to elegant and sophisticated tones of musk, suede, cedar, vetiver and benzoin.

    Top notes: violet leaf, mandarin, pink pepper
    Heart: iris, orris butter, Sambac jasmine, sampaquita
    Base: musk, cedar, vetiver, suede, benzoin



    The alluring blonde Lara Stone was chosen to feature the campaign of the whole line. Violet Blonde will be available as 30 and 50 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Tried it at Saks today. My initial impression is that it is a very nice violet fragrance that can be worn by ANYONE. But it seems to be a bit too light/tame for my tastes. I got a sample to take home, so I'll try it again before making a final decision on it.

    Sorry if I was vague. When I said "meant," I was inferring that the e on the end of "blonde" meant that it's probably "marketed" for women exclusively. I guess I can understand why some men would not wear a women's scent (maybe the bottle?), but I don't see what difference it makes. For example, I'm in love with the "barbershop soap" type scents (like Prada Pour Homme). Though, still being a girly girl, while I do like pink and yellow notes for day wear in warmer months, most "white" notes in perfumes usually do not interest me at all unless they are done as single notes. Too feminine/flowery! Mostly, I prefer dark/warm ... amber, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla, tobacco, cedar, leather, etc. Love old Guerlain/Caron/Lanvin. Spice is nice! And most spice fragrances are easily worn by either sex.

    Well, now that I see the "notes" you posted I'm very curious to smell this ... what a strange top mixture! Violet, orange and pink? Wonder how he pulled that off. That sends my mind in 3 different directions! Is it really flowery? I find his fragrances very strong, so I'm delighted to hear it's "light." Guess I'll just HAVE to go to Nordstrom's next week ...

    It is kind of an odd review. He seems to be waxing eloquent for several paragraphs about how wonderful it is, and then makes these statements at the end. But I gathered that he thought pretty highly of it overall. I'm like you, though, in that I prefer fragrances with more oomph.

    He makes an interesting reference to Santal Blush, calling it "explosive and irresistable".

    I didn't find the opening of Violet Blond particularly embracing (I struggle a bit with anosmia to some violet formulations as it is), but the heart and dry down were *wonderful* Very velvety and charming, like a rosy blush across the cheeks. My wife is still in two minds about it after a full days wearing, whilst I wouldn't grow tired of smelling the latter stages of this on her.
    I would not say it's one for my personal use, though.

    If the sillage is like Black Orchid's, then I think it's misspelled and its name ought to have been Violent Blonde.

    I am the same with violet notes - sometimes I 'get' them, other times I am clueless.

    I wouldn't call Santal Blush "explosive". I sampled it side by side with Jasmin Rouge at first, and JR blew it away in "explosiveness", to the point where I couldn't smell SB until I put down the other card and waited a bit. Nonetheless, it seems like a great boozy floral sandalwood fragrance, with a few similarities to West Side from Bond.

    I am wearing this tonight, and I love it. Yes, it's subtle (for a TF scent) and the violet is powdery and yes, for sure the iris is very prominent. It's not necessarily 'makeup bag' smelling, because it's not very strong, but the gentle whiffs I keep catching of do indeed have iris. The overall effect is something sort of vintage and retro smelling - a style that Mr. Ford is very fond of and IMO does very well (like he did for the retro Rive Gauche Pour Homme when he worked for YSL). The combination of these two florals could easily push this into 'WOMAN' territory but since all of you guys have been rockin' the Dior Homme and Infusion d'Homme forever now, I can't see how an iris prominent fragrance can automatically be labeled as feminine.

    I am normally not a big fan of violet prominent fragrances, and when they're blended they sometimes can overwhelm the composition as a whole (like Aqua Allegoria Lavande Velours - where it sort of smothers the lavender), but in VB its a delicate touch.

    I am sort of reminded of those violet mints I love to eat (that are so hard to find these days).

    A shower gel of this scent would smell incredible!

    Mike do you get the connection to Boudoir? I'm flabbergasted no one in the fragrance world mentioned this online!

    Great scent. Very light and can easily be worn by men, even those that dont like florals.

    I pretty much love everything from Tom Ford but thought that violent blonde really was quite horrific , I mean really really horrific

    Beautiful scent! I love almost everything from Tom Ford, but this scent is definitely my favorite. I want a full bottle, and will probably purchase it soon.

    P.S. If somebody wants to get rid of his bottle, let me know.
