    Hmm on one hand digits in a virtual account, on the other hand a olfactory experience not to be missed. For me that's not a hard decision.

    This frag is in my top three and I love the stuff so yes. I am at some point going to buy a back up bottle as this is one fragrance I never want to be without ever. It's a real manly frag and one for those who belong to the manly man club.lol

    In my humble opinion, no. I wasn't impressed with it and very nearly made the mistake of blind buying it.

    Have you sampled it?

    I think it's worth it if that's the kind of smell you're going for. It's a little too suave for my tastes, so I would never get a bottle. But it's definitely a quality scent with a purpose and unique character.

    Default Re: Is Tom Ford Extreme worth it?

    Love the smell...HATE the price!

    If somehow, some way....Tom Ford decided he was going to double the bottle size from 1.7 oz. to 3.4 oz and keep it at the same price, it would be in my collection immediately. But as is....sorry, as much as I like the fragrance, I simply can't justify spending that kind of $$$ on it.

    I didn't care for it when I tried it, but my advice would be to look very hard for it. You're bound to get it cheaper than that!!

    I am a big fan of TF Extreme. Not a big fan of its price but still don't ever want to not have it in my collection. I wear it a lot in the cooler months here.

    It's an excellent fragrance. It's worth it for me. But it's very much a special occassion fragrance so I don't use it very often.

    That's odd. It lasts for ever on me... and apparently Porsches.

    My younger brother just moved to NYC and decided he didn't nee a car anymore. So he shipped it out to me in San Diego so I could clean it up for him and sell it. After I finished detailing it, I sprayed 3 sprays of it in his car... 4 days later still smells dark, leathery, manly, elegant, mature, sophisticated, mysterious, smoky, woody, leathery, and... pricey.

    If you like the smell of that fragrance price shouldn`t be a matter, there are much fragrances, which are overprized in my eyes (same counts for one of my favorites Black Orchid), but don`t care if you think "It`s your fragrance"

    Personally I think it`s definitly isn`t worth the price, because it doesn`t hold really long on my skin, maybe it would hold longer on yours... And I would never pay so much for an Edt. But check out ebay and look for serious offers.

    I get kinda poor longevity out of it as well, but I dig it enough that I might be able to look past that and just re-up with a pocket atomizer when needed. As far as I'm concerned it's mis-priced so I'll be looking for a more appropriate price point for as long as it takes to find one.

    80 for a 50ML is quite pricey for TF Extreme. I see it selling for around $100 online. Shop around

    I thought I would like this (based on the notes) but whenever I smell it I get a medicated/Band-Aid smell.

    This was one scent I did a big turnaround on - disliked strongly at first, but came to like later on.

    Re the price; I'm guessing that you're UK based by your use of sterling. You could always wait for Debenhams/H.o.F. etc to do one of their 10% days. They're fairly regular. Would bring the price down to a slightly more reasonable 72.

    The scent is nice, but for me, there's too much going on with it. There are too many notes, too many things trying to happen at once. He bit off more than he could chew with this one, though it's still good juice. Longevity wasn't the best for me as well, which brought down my impression of it.

    Really?? Projection: first occassion I wore 3 sprays and was told by a friend I was choking her out, second occassion I wore 2 sprays and was told my cologne was really strong, third occassion I wore one spray and hit the sweet spot. Longevity: I get at least 12 hours, sometimes more.

    However, I do agree with some saying that there's too much going on. It can be somewhat difficult to digest with all those notes.
