    I think it lasts and projects well. I loved what TF did with For Men when they turned that Extreme. I'd be very interested to see what happens with this release scent-wise in an intense version.

    This is a good characterization of Noir. I definitely smell the Habit Rouge reference here, but didn't first time. At first application I smell the mossy, trufle scent that is noticeable in Extreme but it also reminds me of Black Orchid slightly because of the sweet almost minty florals that waft in and out. As it wears on the sweetness of a Habit Rouge type vanilla? opoponox maybe? wears to the front. I think it will be a good fragrance for some, and will probably sell well through the Tom Ford marketing machine, I am not drawn to buy a bottle of this one because of the sweetness in it. Vanilla notes smell attractive, but are not my favorite
    to wear.

    It's absolutely nothing like La Nuit de l'Homme.

    I retract my statement. I tried my sample again and while i still classify it in a similar category they are two different scents. Could have just been the cloud I was in. My was with my buddy when I sprayed it on and he was doused in Sexual By MG.

    I'd still wear it even if it was a woman's fragrance!

    Come to think of it Erok, you didn't get a sample of Noir de Noir did you? Also by Tom Ford. I can see how some men might find it too feminine (not this one though, almost through my 100ml bottle!)

    It's neither feminine nor masculine. Perfectly unisex in my opinion.

    I also find that it projects quite well. My sister has commented on it twice since I started wearing it.

    I do not get any tinge of femininity in this whatsoever. This had to have been confused with Noir de Noir, I do not see how anyone could find this feminine. It would even be a stretch to call this unisex. It's not the "MAN!" kind of fragrance that a Polo or Drakkar Noir is, but this certainly is masculine.

    Interesting, since IMO, he sort of copied Guerlain's Vetiver with his Grey Vetiver and now this is his take on Habit Rouge?

    I love HR, but I doubt that I need a Tom-Ford-version of this.

    Where, in the US, are you guys smelling this? I was at the mall yesterday and I couldn't find it at Sephora or Nordstroms. The SA at Nordstrom's told me I was the 5th customer, that day, that came in asking about it.

    Lol you must be smokin crack or something. I didnt know it was labeled as a feminine perfume but at first sniff I thought "middle aged woman" , and can only imagine being either laughed at or looked at very strangely if I wore this.

    Maybe we're smelling two different things, you sure you're not talking about noir de noir? I cannot fathom any interpretation of noir as old or middle aged woman perfume. There's civet in it! If that's not a masculine note, what is?

    Ahhhhh, now your comments make sense, especially since Black Orchid is technically women's perfume :P.

    Powdery Iris and violet on a bed of peppery geranium and patchouli is what I mainly getting from this latest offering from Tom Ford. I can pick up slight hints of vanille/amber within the mix as well but just slightly.

    I have to say I am not that impressed and was expecting so much more from Tom Ford, not bottle worthy for me.

    I tried this at Nordsrom's this weekend. They were kind enough to give me a sample to take home. Right now, I have to agree, did not impress. I will give it a few wearings before making final judgement, but not overly optimistic.

    I was travelling in the States 2 weeks ago and picked up a bottle. It certainly reminds me of something but I can't quite put my finger on it. For me it has solid projection and longevity. I suspect it will be in heavy rotation for me in the fall/winter seasons.

    Hmm - it's basically Jicky with a crappy part in the middle. I'll have to give it a whiff, but it doesn't sound promising.

    It's perfectly 'nice', but nothing I'd really want to buy immediately. It's starting to fade after about 2 hours too, which is disappointing despite my generally temperamental skin.

    Only smelt this on card, but it seemed to have similarities to Burberry Brit.

    I finally tried this and wasnt impressed. The opening was amazing. It reminded me of a spicy version of l'instant de guerlain. However,it dries down to baby powder.
