    Default Tom Ford Sahara noir, Italian cypress, should I buy them?

    Got lot of from Tom Ford presumes.
    Black orchid, noir, grey vetiver, our wood, Tuscan leather, neroli portofino.
    Now I found in Kiev, I saw here Sahara noir, and Italian cypress tester of 50 ml.
    I. Know that those perfumes are not made any more, it's says that it is an old stock.
    What do you think about it, should I buy? The price are not so high.
    And it's blind buy...

    If you have a sense you will like them, and you're willing to take the risk, go for it.

    Sahara Noir is my favorite Tom Ford and I'm sad that it has been discontinued. It is a great frankincense, not heavy, slightly citrusy, it has none of the dark heaviness of many other renditions. So I would buy that (as long as you like incense).

    Italian cypress is a nice aromatic-coniferous woody thing, good, but not as distinctive as sahara noir, and I feel that there are other perfumes in the style that I would prefer.

    Remember there are a lot of fake Tom Ford bottles out there. The tester bottle of Italian Cypress is probably a fake, as Tom Ford doesn't produce tester bottles of private blends.

    Sahara Noir is less likely to be faked.

    Sahara Noir is lovely, and I have two bottles. Italian Cypress I found not to my liking and more old fashioned, but the quality of the juice is not disputed.

    Old production date not make the juice bad, unlike creed?
    How can I recognize fake Sahara?

    sahara noir is certainly not a blind buy safe nor a buy worthy for me. its a pass.
    italian cypress is still not a blind buy safe fragrance but you can pull the trigger on it. its not as risky as sahara noir.

    Sahara Noir is a must if you like the style. Italian Cypress, on the other hand, was forgettable.

    There are delivery men that give me the perfumes.
    I. Can check them before I get them, to what I should be notice?
