    Default Tom Ford Noir Extreme vs Tom Ford Noir

    I have tested Noir and Noir Pour Femme.
    Really like the Noir compared to Femme, found it better kind plum citrusy, while Femme smelled tobacco vanilla-ish

    I didn't smelled Noir Extreme is it similar to original Noir or leans more towards Femme?

    IMO it's between those two, but perhaps leaning a bit towards the Femme.

    Try Prada's Amber pour Homme Intense if you can, to my nose it is similar to Noir but I like it more.

    Plain TF Noir (EDP), or plain TF Extreme for me, but didn't like TF Noir Extreme. Did like Noir Femme, but not as much as Noir. I think the Femme is closer to Noir than Noir Extreme.

    Noir Anthracite is nice., but still prefer Noir.

    This is a great scent. VERY FEW modern designer scents approach the richness and orchestral complexity of Kouros, but this is one that does, IMO.

    My wife owns Noir Femme, I have a decant of Noir Extreme. I've worn them side by side and Noir Extreme is very, very similar to Noir Femme. It has a slight masculine edge side by side but they are very similar. I like Noir Extreme quite a bit but am not a fan of regular Noir's drydown.
    Hope this helps.

    Noir Extreme is a misnamed scent. It isn't an intense or extreme version of Tom Ford Noir. It's a totally different scent that's closer to something like Spicebomb. In fact, the only resemblance to Tom Ford Noir is the shape of the bottle.

    Ooh, now there's an underrated gem! Tom Ford Extreme. I'm surprised it doesn't come up more often here on basenotes. It's outstanding.

    I had TWO backups at one time, when it looked like the limited edition would be DCed, but I think one left as a secret Santa swap long ago, after it entered the "permanent" lineup.

    Yeah, that one is stellar!

    For me personally, Noir Extreme is quite similar to Noir Pour Femme - but nothing at all like Noir. And I find Noir Extreme to be really very close to Spicebomb Extreme.

    I agree, both fragrances are quite similar, and by the way absolutely stunning with their complex blends of spices.

    TF Extreme has become one of my fav's of the whole TF line, Private Blends notwithstanding.

    Noir Extreme gives off a more mature La Nuit de L'Homme vibe to me... but it is nothing like Noir to be honest and one wonders how it got its name.
