    welcome back!! i missed your previous posts from July. Very nicely done. Enigma is good stuff. Diaghilev, is nicely blended but too rich for me. Ive tried and simply cant wear this one. Great review of it though. Amber Absolute i love and is one of the few TF i actually enjoy. excellent stuff that lasts for eons.

    ---------->Tom Ford Neroli Portofino<----------


    Notes:

    Top Notes:
    Tunisian neroli, Italian bergamot, Sicilian lemon, Mandarin, Lavender, Myrtle, Rosemary, Bitter orange

    Heart Notes:
    African orange blossom, Jasmine, Neroli, Pitosporum

    Base notes:
    Amber, Ambrette seed, Angelica


    Opinion: Carrying with Tom Ford fragrances and once again I´m very impressed! One more SUPERB scent! I´m simply blown away, again. One more gem! Neroli Portofino is a citrusy, floral, aromatic and amberish scent. This is very clean and has a soapy character, almost of an high quality soap! The funny thing is that I don´t like neroli as a note, but here, the whole blend makes this scent to be really dazzling! I have to consider this to be an exceptional adaptation of this note.

    A fresh, clean, gentle, delicate, natural and smooth fragrance, with a classy aura also. This has real quality, it´s refined, very elegant. It´s an easy fragrance to wear, not complex and fairly linear. Gladly, I sampled this stunning fragrance during Summer. Let´s go for comparisons:

    - 4711 Original Eau de Cologne: Many state that NP is almost identical to this German old fragrance. I do not know it, that way I can´t make any conclusion. I´ll have to take into consideration for assessment, though;

    - Mugler Cologne: This one I know and love. Still, I can´t figure why some say that they are the same. They´re not! In my opinion, Mugler Cologne has more to do with Creed´s Original Vetiver (or the contrary, since the latter came years later. Regarding NP and MC, I do find some similarities, but NP is richer, more aromatic and amberish and not as bitter as MC.


    Sadly, this won´t be on higher places in this part. Scent wise, it will be, for sure.

    Remarkable!!!



    Type/Gender: Unisex.

    I believe this fragrances leans a bit to the masculine side.


    Season and Purpose: This is a fragrance mostly for Summer. Spring is always a good season and hottest Fall days. This is very versatile, as one can wear it for most occasions. I´d wear this at work, formal, casual, date. However, due to its performance, this wouldn´t be my first choice for night out scent. Not for Winter, though.


    Achilles heel: I wish this had Tobacco Vanille perfomance...!


    Regarding Performance:

    - Longevity: ~11h
    - Sillage: Moderate
    - Projection: Moderate to good


    Scent: 10
    Longevity: 9
    Sillage: 8.35
    Projection: 8.35
    Uniqueness: 7.15
    Versatility: 9
    --- Overall: 8.63


    Got compliments? Yes!


    Would I buy it? Yes.

    One can find these fragrance for about $180 (50 ml) or $300 (100ml) . No the cheapest fragrance but among the cheapest of PV. I´d completely buy it!

    Great update, Johnny! I agree with your assessment of Neroli Portofino. I'm pretty sure it's my favorite of the blue bottle Tom Ford Private Blends. As soon as warm weather comes around, I need to revisit it, and I should compare it to NP Forte too. I've been really hooked on Penhaligon's Castile and MFK's Aqua Universalis. Neroli Portofino fits in that wheelhouse, but it's definitely unique.

    I also love Aqua Universalis but do not know Castile. Maybe I´ll give it a try!

    I always describe Castile the same way, so if this sounds good to you, give it a try: Castle smells like you took a bar of the richest soap you could find, and you picked up a knife to shave off thin slices. Imagine running your fingers through the soap slices. That's the smell of Castile - but it also has a really nice musk that lurks in the background which makes the scent so wonderfully wearable. I really love the stuff.

    Thanks again for posting, the description of Neroli Portofino is, as always, spot on, in fact could easily relive certain personal sensations, of a very pleasant and memorable kind, experienced while sampling this fragrance - great description, superb and superlative as always

    Going back a bit, you think Diaghilev is masculine? Even though it is a classic floral chypre? And is compared, rightly, to Mitsouko and vintage Opium?

    Hi. NickZee!

    Yes, in my opinion it leans to the masculine side and like I wrote, it´s not a fragrance I´d like to smell on a woman. There´s something manly and kind of mature about Diaghilev. Sure a woman can wear this but to be honest, I´d tend to think it would suit older women better.

    I´ve never smelled Mitsouko, although I know YSL Opium. I´m not sure if I smelled vintage Opium, but in my opinion, there´s not much similarities between the two. Opium has a spicier and more balsamic vibe whereas Diaghilev has more of a woody, animalic and powdery aura. I do find Opium to be more masculine, though.

    Interesting final results you compiled!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
