I'm really excited! It's on fragrance.org and I think these are the notes:
Top notes: Italian bergamot, verbena, caraway, baie rose, violet flower
Heart notes: black pepper, nutmeg, Tuscan Iris resisn, Egyptian Geranium, Bulgarian Rose, Clary Sage
Base notes: Opoponax, amber, Indonesian patchouli, vetiver, civet, vanilla
I'm interested. I hope I like it better than his other non-Private Collection releases, but I'm not holding my breath.
My Top Ten:
1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
2: Guerlain - Jicky
3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
4: Guerlain - Shalimar
5: Knize - Knize Ten
6: Caron - Yatagan
7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme
Oh, Brother. Dig the Add Look: Not to be outdone, he's now wearing "Clever Facial Hair." I guess he's finally figured out that everyone has noticed he's squeezed every drop he could out of the mid to late Seventies--so now he's attacking the Nineties. What next? I wonder if he'll go matte now and start powdering, as opposed to rubbing vaseline all over his chest hair?
"...a Chacun son Mauvais Gout."
Yeah, I noticed that, too. The photo of the photo was a bit unkind, and with my bad vision and my glasses off, it jumped out at me with a sort of "cheap glue-on Shakespearean theater beard" look - one that I do not normally associate with Tom Ford - to say the least!
However, putting on my glasses and squinting a bit, it did indeed look both natural and rather studly. I may have to put duct tape on my beard trimmer height attachment to get it working again for the fall fragrance season. Which is not to say that mine would actually be anywhere near noir.
This sounds like Tom's Serge Noire.
Looking at the notes it seems this is a busy, complex fragrance. Can't wait to try it
i'm kind of excited. just got to test out tobacco vanille, tuscan leather, and noir de noir, so i'm expecting good things
So longevity issues is a "minor quibble" to the author of this review?!?!? I hate to tell him/her.....but that would be a pretty major one to me. Especially considering the prices for Tom Ford fragrances. Longevity (or lack there of) issues is one reason that Tom Ford for Men (the original) is not part of my collection.....From the article:
"If I have once cirticism it’s that Noir doesn’t last quite as long as I’d like but, in the grand scheme of things that’s a minor quibble."
Civet! This looks good
Does anyone else think the bottle looks like a black Gucci pour Homme I, which was released while Tom Ford was in charge at Gucci?
Very much looking forward to most probably expanding my TF collection still further!
Now that sounds exciting!!!
Current Top 5:
1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Thanks for the heads up.
I would say, cautiously, that it appears to hold promise.
What made me laugh in the above review is what he says at the end of the review:
"Certainly, Ford has yet to come up with a duff fragrance, something few of his contemporaries can claim."
Is it only available in 50ml like TF Extreme then?
Edit - And damn I wish these companies would stop using the word 'addicting' in their advertising speil. Its not even a word.

They had me at "Eau de Parfum". I'm in for a bottle.
"I am a robot and I like cheese"
1. Axe Kilo
2. Lectric Shave
3. Vicks Vapor Rub
4. Febreze Pour Homme
5. Preferred Stock
Is that an LP or an EP in the picture with the bearded stud?
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
I missed that the first time!
There you go - hint to TF: make it a CD or DVD promo of the amazing ad that you're going to release for this sucker!
Except for civet, excellent notes! Verbena should be more used in perfumery.
Very interesting! can't wait to try it.
when is this comming to town? (United Kingdom is where town is )
I would love to try this out when I get the chance.
But I am not too crazy about the name. I don't want to be negative here, but I just find it can ....or will...confuse people because there already is a Noir de Noir ( albeit in the Private Line). I just don't like confusion. I remember when I first started to get serious about fragrances and how confused I was ( and how I got names mixed up...etc)
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
Amouage Lyric Man, Jubilation XXV TF Oud Wood, Plum Japonais, Oud Fleur, AVENTUS..

Amouage Lyric Man, Jubilation XXV, TF Oud Wood, Plum Japonais, Oud Fleur, Dior Leather Oud
Civet? ugh I really hope this doesn't come out as aggressive as some other civet fragrances
My sales thread
When I sampled, it didn't. It was quite heavy on patchouli to me, seemed more leathery up top.
