    I have only tried & own Noir de Noir, but would love to try the others if I have a chance.

    It is so seductive on me and I love it.

    It was easy to pick one from your list (Noir de Noir). If you had included Japon Noir, Moss Breches, and Santal Blush, it would have been a lot harder!
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    I voted Noir de Noir. I enjoy Oud Wood, Arabian Wood and Champaca Absolute as well.

    Lavender Palm and Santal Blush... those are pretty good too! Maybe even Amber Absolute.

    1. Tabacco Vanille easily one of the best scents I have ever smelt. Follow by Oud Wood.

    I'd actually say "none of the above", but given that list, Noir de Noir, with Black Violet and Japon Noir next.

    I'm the only one who chose Black Violet! I also like Oud Wood.

    While I think Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather smell really interesting, I don't like them as perfume. Don't want to walk around smelling like a leather sofa.

    I vouted Oud Wood, but Bois Morocain might be as good (I have only tried it once). The only bottle I´ve found FBW so far though is Velvet Gardenia...

    Tobacco Vanille for me, with Noir de Noir coming second (although I prefer the closely related Coromandel).

    Default Re: Your Choice of 1 Scent from Tom Ford Private Blend

    I find Bois Morocain a brilliant all rounder, so voted for that. Closely followed are Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Vanille and Noir de Noir.

    Amber Absolute should get a shout too

    I own several of those listed, and have sampled all but Black Violet. Tobacco Vanille is the clear winner for me.

    is it similar to Lumiere Noire Pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian - have you sampled this?

    Not even remotely close, NDN is very dense, gourmand, with a boozy/winey rose and oud combo. Quite seductive, the closest thing you'll find in KL to it is Coromandel by Chanel.

    If I HAD to choose, probably Tobacco Vanille.

    I have Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Neroli Portofino and Italian Cypress. Noir de Noir is nice although, I don't need a full bottle.

    When reading "Tom Ford Private Blend" I always get the unappetizing image of him (or one of his shirtlifters) destilling his body odour and actually selling it to people who throw their cash at him.

    Noir de Noir put to bed any desire I had to continue my search for a personally definitive rose scent. It is my favourite perfume of all time. Rose, Vanilla, Saffron, Oud, Chocolate, Magic, Stardust, Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster, Kryptonite ..... it's all in there.

    I love Noir de Noir. But don't you think Noir de Noir is very similar to Bond No. 9's West Side though?

    Cafe Rose sounds intriguing... anyone sniffed that one yet?

    Tuscan leather is fabulous, but it can go either way for me: sumptuous leather, or smoky ash tray, and I never know which it's going to be.

    I'll be an outrider and say Italian Cypress, for the rich, dense splendor.
