    Default TomFord.com debuts with entire fragrance line for sale online

    With very little fanfare, Tom Ford's website (www.tomford.com) now has conceded and joined the online fashion revolution and all of his Signature scents and Private Blends (and accessories) are for sale on the website. Before, they were listed on the website, but you couldn't actually buy them directly from him. Now you can. In fact the newest scent, Velvet Orchid is only exclusively sold online for now. Let's see how long that lasts. Although I did notice there are some Private Blends not listed anymore (Lavender Palm?)

    In addition, now there is an official Tom Ford Twitter page and an official Tom Ford Instagram account.

    Seems as if they're stepping up their e-commerce game.

    The art direction/layout reminds me of his early perfume ads and aesthetic he did when he was at YSL and Gucci - gripping and controversial half naked models, lots of skin, Terry Richardson style photography, etc.

    Also - there is a short film that TF will be shooting to promote the Oud Range of his Private Blends, titled, 'An Ode to Oud' - here's a still from the film, posted by Nik Thakkar on his FB page:

    I have wondered when they would start doing online sales, it's about time. Now, if they would find a few bottles of Purple Patchouli gathering dust in the warehouse I would be very happy.

    Well if you remember when Tom Ford starting out selling his fragrances, the Private Blends, they were ONLY sold in the Madison Avenue Tom Ford boutique. You had to make an appointment to smell them, they really didn't allow walk in's. It was very exclusive, very limited, very VIP-elitist- bullsh*t.

    Opening up the entire fragrance range to the internet is, IMO, a complete 180 degree change. One I am glad they've embraced.

    You might write and ask them. You never know. I've actually had that happen with another perfume house and a long-discontinued perfume.

    I would. At first, I wasn't too keen on Sahara because I tried it in the store rather than leave with a sample and try at home...away from all the scents of the mall. It's a really nice, warm frankincense fragrance. Seek it out at a lower price, I do feel like $150 is a bit high of a price tag for this one.

    Water is clearly flowing into the tub from that thing we call faucet. Just sayin'...

    Hey - if you are that hot, you don't need no stinking towels to dry off. Just get out of the tub and shake it off.

    What he said. I always thought it was a slightly under-appreciated little gem, not given enough attention by many. You really need to sample this one outside of the fragrance department environment. This one is great, it could easily be part of the Private Blend line.

    ^ LOL! Wow - that smooth-streamin' faucet fooled the heck out of me! I thought the water was the hose, and the faucet was one of those European sprinkler-on-a-rope jobs.

    LMAO. Yeah - walk it off! Towels are for chumps!

    I just wish that Sahara wasn't so dry to my nose. It's just way too dry for me to enjoy. But it does smell like one of his best, for sure.

    Hmmm I don't find this one dry, but it is very warm. You didn't by chance try it this winter did you? The weather this year has done weird things to my nose...I'll try something one day and it smells totally different the next. I think it's a combination of the frigid weather and my skin being abnormally dry.

    With their drastic expansion, the "private collection" hasn't been "private" for quite a while now. SF now has Tom Ford counters next to the Jo Malone counters in Neimans, Saks, Bloomingdales, and Nordstrom. And Barneys has part of the collection as well.
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??
