    Default Tom Ford Noir

    Wow this has to be a joke. It's almost offensively sweet. Charging any more than $5 for this is robbery. Tom, I expected more, bro.

    Tried it - like most from this line it's a competent, commercial release that will appeal to lots of people but on a bad day I might call it cynical and overpriced like pretty well all of them. It's not actually bad, just unnecessary

    I bought a bottle of this because I really liked it when I tested it, but I'm not liking it nearly as much on repeated wearings. For me it's not the sweetness that's the problem, but rather the dryness of it. Also, there are some wearings where I get a vomity note, similar to what I (and others) get from 100% Love.

    I have tried it and IMHO it is too generic. I do not intent to buy a bottle
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am.

    I find it to be feminine and sweet. Would not purchase a bottle but would not go so far as to say it is a flop.

    I've seen this compared frequently to Habit Rouge or Shalimar, but I just don't see it. Of course all three have a kind of powdery vanilla sweetness in common, but the peppers and other spices really make Noir quite different, to my nose at least.

    Please indulge me. I Am Guessing Here Tom Ford (the Company) conducted a poll to find out which was the 3rd or 4th best selling Private Line frag (we dont want to mess around too much with our top exclusives, do we?). Found out (or decided) it was Noir de Noir. TF then decided to increase future cashflow by taking NdN mainstream: water down the formula, add a bit here, remove a lot there and, viola, this seemingly unnecessary new juice called Tom Ford Noir.

    Fantasy switch toggled off, and while not intending to start a new round of GIT/Cool Water aggro, my first impression when i sprayed Noir to the back of my hand (still is now, several hours later) was that Noir smells like NdN. Too close to ignore. And i own and know NdN. I thought it was just the top notes, but the heart/dry-down seem to have sustained the theme of the Private Line template, albeit in a slightly screechy, watered down manner.

    On its own merits, Noir is a good release. If i did not have NdN i would have bought Noir on the spot. I do not agree that it smells generic. It has a superior template and represents it well. It has not ended up as a fleeting scent on my skin 6 hours after just one spray to the back of my hand. It has not evolved dramatically, true, but i still smell what was attractive about it (and NdN). Noir will sell in droves, no matter how much we trash it here, and it deserves to sell well.

    I support any release that gets the mainstream perfume consumer to buy something that is, by normal standards (not ours), atypical. For the average Joe, who probably wouldn't look at or know about Noir de Noir or Habit Rouge, Tom Ford Noir is a probably an olfactory stretch, but not too much so. It will still be successful, which will encourage future releases slightly outside the norm...baby steps. I really respect Tom Ford as a fragrance house pushing the industry in this direction while being successful.

    Anyway, for the reasons above, I probably won't buy it, but I hope it does well.

    Finally purchased a full bottle, after several sampling sessions. Strikes me as highly versatile, complex, and constructed with high quality ingredients. Plus, the packaging is beautiful. Somewhat reasonably priced for the quality. To BNers who sniffed it once or twice and gave up: try again. It's one of the better mainstream releases of the past few months. Much more going on there than you might have thought at first sniff.

    I find the marketing of scents like this funny right now. Granted, I haven't tested this yet but if you look at many magazine lists of men's fragrances, this shows up. They basically give the ad spiel on what it's supposed to smell like. After hearing reviews here it reinforces that these companies pay bucks to get on the lists and that most of the people making the lists probably didn't smell many of them.

    I first tried this only on a test strip at Sephora last week and it really did not smell bad at all. My first thought was "Why is everyone hating on this stuff so much?". It did not smell innovative at all, but I thought on paper it did smell good... Well, I ordered a sample of it to try on skin at home and now I can see where the disdain is coming from. On skin Noir smells just like slightly violet floral laced baby powder/baby oil. What a gargantuan waste of money...

    Is it fashionable amongst the elite to 'hate' on this juice? I have sampled and worn Noir, as well as Noir de Noir, Habit Rouge and many others considered to be in the higher echelons of quality and I think Noir stands up very well indeed. I find it deliciously complex, dark and masculine. I'd actually take it over NdN and HR without any hesitation.

    Actually, I might take Noir de Noir, sell it and buy Noir, apply it liberally and take my missus out with the change because she loves it too.

    If it had been made by Creed, everyone would say how wonderful it was and we would be treated to endless threads comparing batch numbers

    Unfortunately, it's made by Estee Lauder and considered unworthy.

    I like it.

    Well said! It's a very high quality scent. It's just the usual rampant snobbery in here.

    Yes I like it too. Anyway I think I can put the 'Noir Extreme' rumour to rest (which admittedly I started ). I recently returned to the aforementioned John Lewis branch to quiz another SA; there was some BS about it maybe being stocked in London but another SA said the Extreme probably referred to TF Extreme and for some reason both prices were displayed on the same sticker. Sorry folks!

    Don't know if this will be of interest to anyone (indeed, I don't actually know how true it will turn out to be!), but an SA in London told me recently that this will soon be available as an aftershave balm. Which if true, I would buy for collection purposes at least.

    I initially did not like it, but since I have grown to like it much more, especially considering all the latest releases have been abysmal. It is a jicky or Shalimar for men ie Guerlinade, and yes the civet is there , blended with the florals, it gives off a powdery smell. I will buy it when I can score a 100 ml bottle for under 75-85 bucks.

    This is how I feel. I wouldn't mind adding to the collection, but it's not good enough to warrant the price

    It is worth it imo. Buy a decant, it will cost around 2$ per ml, which is great considering the quality of the private blend.

    It's honestly not that bad, its nothing outstanding or revolutionary, but it is a good fragrance.

    Would surely get more praise and recognition though if it didn't have the Tom Ford name attached to it, such high expectations for his creations and when he releases an average one, it is seen as a disappointment.

    How different is the EDT, which has less exotic notes?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have TF noir EDP and find the Violet leaf very exquisite and the powderiness to be just right...very similar to NR for Him but tone down a little and bit rounder and darker then NR, and yes I sold my NR for him and have this Noir as my rainy gloomy day Scent and consider a FBW......and one of the better frags of TF signature line and admit that it has no similarities to Noir de Noir but stands in it's own pedestal.....peace

    In my opinion, its sweetness and the first impression it makes on the nose borders on almost being disturbing, overpowering and averagely sweet at best, if not even downright sugary. But then, again to my nose, it tends to mellow down into something smoother and more nuanced after 30-45 minutes, showing its full potential only after the longer term drydown sets in.

    I found the edt very similar just not as powerful. I have the edp and love it. Its a very good compliment getter for me.

    It's pretty much the same as EdP, minus the opoponax, styrax & civet. Excluding those notes from the EdT, gives it a spicier feel similar to Burberry Brit for Men.

    I sampled it when it first was released. To my nose it did have a resemblance to Habit Rouge. Noir was sweeter to me compared to Habit Rouge.

    Like most Tom Ford fragrances I've tried they smell nice but not enough for me to purchase a bottle. Sahara Noir is an exception and might be my first Tom Ford purchase.

    I can agree with this.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Are you serious, "noir similar to DHI " you got to be joking, no by a mile! It's incredible how noses differentiate, but come on, please tell me you're joking or maybe your nose might be broken.....peace

    Personally I don't get the resemblance to Habit Rouge. The Noir EDP and HR EDT that is.

    Love Noir and think it's a great frag.

    I really like Habit Rouge as well but this is much a more old school soap'ier citrus fragrance.
