    Default Are we in the age of "POWDERY"?

    I ask because the big excitement over Tom Ford's Noir when to me it just smells like baby powder.

    I like some Avon powder-like scents but they have been around for a w
    hile.

    Am I just imagining things or are there more and more "powder" scents out there?

    Excitement over TF Noir? I was under the impression that it was a huge flop.

    agree, TF Noir is a huge flop to my nose

    Tom Ford could do a lot better than that

    Overly powdery fragrances are catching up to overly soapy fragrances. *sigh*

    I've had it shoved under my nose on at least a couple of occasions and told by an SA how good it smells. I politely smell it and just say "no thanks, not for me". Based on the push at retail I can see how some people are Jedi mind tricked into purchasing, thus making it successful from a business standpoint.

    This trend seems to have been quite pronounced in the past and, like most trends, is returning.

    In my opinion, returning with greater force, since recent releases in a powdery style have been more numerous and also more popular lately.

    Exactly, since M7 Oud Absolu with its annoying powdery construction I don't question this fact.

    We're not in the era of powdery. Just in the era of poor vernaculars.

    Right now I feel mens scents are all over the place. The aquatic era is starting to loose its grip. Oud is trying to take center but can't get a firm grasp on the wold market.

    There are several popular powdery scents, but I wouldn't call it an "age." I'd say this is far more of an "aquatic" or "blue" or "herbal fresh" age than a powdery age, and there could be arguments against each of those classifications as well.

    Noir leaves me unmoved right now, but I always try things at least twice with a few months interspaced.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Not in age of powdery, but rather the age of Synthetic.
