Noir de Noir.
For me, it's between Tobacco Vanille or Tuscan Leather.
Noir de Noir.
For me it's a tie between Moss Breches and Black Orchid.
noir de noir or tuscan leather
1. Dior Homme Original
2. Musc Ravaguer
3. Portrait of a Lady
4. Noir de Noir
5. L Instant Guerlain pour Homme Extreme
6. New Haarlem
7. Pure Coffee
8. Blu Mediterraneo Sicilian Almond
9. Rose 31
10. Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Right now I'm leaning towards Black Orchid, but I'm falling out of love with the whole line.
Definitely Tobacco Vanille for me.
My exopsure to this line is limited, but so far my fave is----->
it smells EXACTLY like Clive Christian "C"...
I've tried Noir de Noir, Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Amber Absolute, and Oud Wood, all quite a bit, and by far my favorite is Oud Wood. I'd imagine this goes against what most folks think--I didn't really like the rest at all, but I prefer Noir de Noir and Tobacco Vanille out of the rest.
Only have tried Grey Vetiver, Extreme and Black Orchid, enjoyed them all. Vote goes to BO.
I've tried eight of them and my favorite is Tom Ford for Men.
I Love many of His fragrances.....I have to go with Extreme or Tuscan Leather.....We must not forget M7 or Gucci Pour Homme!!!

and Black Orchid
Noir de Noir
I like Tuscan Leather but I haven't smelled TF's entire line to decide which is the best.
Of the ones I have tried Tuscan Leather...
1. Tom Ford Extreme
Others I love:
2. Tom Ford For Men
3. Tobacco Vanille
4. Neroli Portofino
5. Bois Marocain
6. Noir de Noir
7. Cafe Rose
8. Grey Vetiver
9. Amber Absolute
1. Creed - Spice & Wood
2. Creed - Aventus
3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
4. Xerjoff - Fars
5. Dior - Vetiver
6. Creed - Green Valley
7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
10. Creed - Royal Scottish Lavender
Thinking Violet Blonde or Santal Blush.
Tuscan Leather, Black Orchid, Voile de Fleur, and Noir de Noir would all make the cut.
I don't know them all but my favourite is probably Italian Cypress. I wouldn't refuse a Grey Vetiver or an Oud wood, which I tested yesterday.
I've only tried:
Black Orchid: I like it but feel it's too flamboyant for me too wear.
Noir de Noir: Hugely underwhelmed by this one. I hardly smelled anything on my skin and what I smelled I didn't like.
Tabacco Vanille: I really like it as a comfort scent, but I really don't see myself wearing it without feeling like a cupcake...
For me its OUD WOOD its just a money scent to me. Lasts for 12+ hours on me as well...almost an entire 24 on one spray and its doesn't change too much unlike Tobacco vanille which changes to a plain vanilla at the end...still nice but I still want that tobacco from it not just the vanilla.
Amber Absolute, Urban Musk, then Tuscan Leather and Bois Marocaine.

Japan Noir then Noir de Noir
The discontinued Velvet Gardenia and Moss Breches
"Human interaction can be hell. Or it can be a great spiritual practice."
-- Eckhart Tolle
Japon Noir followed closely by Tobacco Vanille.
+1 for Moss Breches
I really really enjoy Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Vanille, Neroli Portofino and Tom Ford Extreme.
But I go weak in the knees for Amber Absolute, gorgeous.
I can't possibly choose just 1, but my top 5 are:
2. Noir de Noir
3. Amber Absolute
4. Tobacco Vanille
5. Moss Breches
"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
My two faves are Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather, but Tobacco Vanille gets the nod for me!
My favorite of the ones that I've tried is Noir de Noir. I have samples of most of the Tom Ford scents. I haven't really had a chance to try most of them. One I did try recently that I liked was Japan Noir. That one got somewhat mixed reviews and has been discontinued from what I heard. I found a bottle that was about 60% full on ebay for a good price and ended up buying it.
I haven't tested the recent private blends and I probably won't bother. Of all the others I like humble old Grey Vetiver the best. I will test the new Noir shortly.
Tuscan Leahter, Tobacco Vanille and Noir de Noir are the best imo.
Never cared for any of the 4 new ones.
TV, probably followed by Grey Vetiver for me.
Noir de Noir. Simply stunning
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
Noir de Noir: (+) One of the sexiest fragrances ever created, Females fall head-over heels for this one. (-) Feminine
Amber Absolute: (+) Unique, (-) Weird smell to most people, Borderline unwearable, lacks versatility = I only wear this for me
Tobacco Vanille: (+) Versatility, Prly the best performing (projection, longevity & sillage) frag ever made, very dynamic (-) Not as sophisticated (on a man) as others in this line.
Tuscan Leather: (+) Powerful in performance & mood. (-) Harsh opening, polarizing scent, can't be dressed down
Cafe Rose: (+) Very simialr to NdN (-) Very similar to NdN

I've tried the 4 new ones, and only the coffee one seems like something I'd wear or am interested in...still though, catching my attention from the get go is something only TobaccoVanille and Tuscan Leather managed to from this line.
1. Tobacco Vanille
2. Oud Wood
3. Tuscan Leather

Now with 418 unique bottles in my collection
From the short list of TF fragrances I've tried/sampled, here's what I think are the best: Tobacco Vanille, Noir de Noir, and Oud Wood.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
I so desperately want to fall in love with Neroli Portofino, but it's got 0 longevity and 0 projection. It breaks my heart. I have high hopes for Noir, but it's getting such mixed reviews, I'm slightly hesitant about getting it. So, for now, my fav is Tom Ford for Men.
Opinions vary.....But in mine..TV rules.

Tobacco Vanille without a doubt!
I sampled a few today. Tom Ford Extreme is very nice - something I could wear to work regularly. Arabian Wood was a close 2nd for work wear.
Tuscan Leather and Tobacco Vanille were both amazing. Very unique scents, but not something I would wear regularly. I'd be satisfied with a small decant of those.
