    Default Tom Ford Noir

    I got a chance to smell a preview sample at NM today. Not bad, but not what I was expecting at all. Its kind of light and focused on the violet and nutmeg composition in the middle the most. I feel that it fits in closer with the Jardin line that geting release at the same time than with his main mens line. Couldn't get a sample yet but I want to try it on the skin when I can, the SA says its a little weak on longivity and projection from testing they did.

    That's a shame. I love the way the bottle looks so I was hoping it would turn out good, but the review so far seem to be quite poor...

    Looks like I can upgrade from a 50 to a 55" TV haha

    Nothing wrong with buying Hanae Mori. Just purchased one a week ago and love this scent. Amazing summer time fragrance. I highly recommend.

    Yeah - I've been neglecting mine. It was one of my first loves. I'm hoping the new one is just as distinctive.

    Did you get the EDT or EDP? I have the EDP, and sometimes I wish I'd gone with the EDT.

    Has there been a on-sale date announced for HiM?

    I think he's talking about HM. As far as I know, HiM has yet to be released.

    I kind of wish Hanae Mori was a bit more creative with the naming of the new fragrance....

    I like TF but for me it was just too weak. HIM just doesn't impress me I was expecting so much waiting ten years I can't wait to hear others thoughts on HIM

    Tested this, was not impressed, did not get any opponax or civet. Its a herbal fragrance but very light, which defeats the purpose. Sorry Tom, this one is a NO from me.

    So do I. Noir has something of TF Extreme and Dior Homme Intense and a good projection. On me it lasts 12 hours or more. Perfect for cooler days. Might become a winner.

    If it resembles Tom Ford Extreme in some way, I'll definitely be interested. I loved that smell but it was so weak and fleeting on my skin that I just could not justify the price they were asking for. This is at least 30 cheaper for an EDP. Now to try and find a sample before my workplace gets stock on the last week on September...

    Ooh, so it's being released the first week of October I take it? I knew it was October, but is there an actual date?

    Little hint: If you just happen to be at a reputable Tom Ford stand (i.e. one that stocks the Private Blends), ask in a completely unsuspecting way about the release date of Tom Ford Noir, and you may just get a spray. I just went to test something and thought I'd ask about the release date, and got a spray on a card. It smells...dirty. May have to look into this further when it's actually released, but it doesn't look promising.

    They just had a sample bottle sitting around at my local Nords in Denver. Also, the longevity on me is pretty damn good.

    Sadly we've got neither Bloomingdale's nor Nordstrom in the UK. I got a taster at Selfridges and I'm really on the fence about it.

    Does it remind you of anything in particular?

    Smelled like a light version of CREED Bois du Portugal to me.
    So a skip.

    I don't understand all the complaints about Noir, for me it is well balanced and beautifully crafted. It is green, patchouli based fragrance mixed with violets. Extremely masculine, though stays close to skin. It reminds me of less sweet and greener version of Dolce & Gabbana The One Gentleman, and on the paper I do get some Tuscan Leather nuances.

    I can barely recall it from the bit of paper I was left with, but people have been comparing it to Shalimar...

    Apparently Boots have it in stock now, I might give them a ring tomorrow.

    It wasn't too far from Dior's Patchouli Imperial to my nose.
    Splits!
