    Question Your Top 5 Tom Ford Fragrances ?

    Thanks in advance for your posts. Please feel free to exercise negative criticism if you think any of the fragrances are overhyped/ overpriced or of poor quality.

    Hmm,

    1. Neroli Portofino (Forte especially along with all the other flankers smell the same to me and are redundant, so I group them into the main scent which is based around the antique fragrance 4711).

    2. Tom Ford for men (reminds me of MDCI's Invasion Barbare, but with more citrus and without the graphite/pencil-lead note)

    3. Shanghai Lilly (may be purchasing 'someday' as it's on my finalist list for lilly-based fragrances. criminally underrated by enthusiasts.)

    4. Tobacco Vanille (smooth, nose-pleasing, easy to like, but there are better tobacco-based scents out there)

    5. Tuscan Leather (not my thing, but extremely realistic leather scent)

    Those are, IMO, the house's best 5 in that order, with distancing my personal taste and looking at it from a purely holistic/global point of view.

    Currently only have Grey Vetiver EDP most versatile and fits my needs once Ombré Leather 18 comes down in price I might try that one.

It definitely has some damp earthy aspect as well, apparently there is a truffle or mushroom note, which may be what I'm smelling.

    I'll bite. My wearing preference of Tom Ford:

    1. Noir Pour Femme
    2. Tobacco Vanille
    3. Noir Anthracite
    4. London
    5. Oud Fleur

    Tobacco Oud Intense may replace Oud Fleur once I get a bottle. Oud Fleur is special to me being my first Tom Ford scent.

    I do like the blue bottles but they're not what Tom Ford does best.

    I don't care for:
    Tuscan Leather - not a fan of the raspberry/leather combo, and very commonly replicated today
    Noir Extreme - I find the female version much more interesting. This one has too much cardamom, smoke and is borderline sour

    It IS a bit of an odd one, isn't it? ...but in a great way. To me, Tom Ford Extreme smells like a toned down and butched up version of Black Orchid. I can only wear it in cold weather, but in cold weather it's one of my all time favorites.

    In no particular order, based not so much on performance (though also getting quite good performance from either/most) as much as the actual scent, otherwise in no (further) particular order: Grey Vetiver EDP, Man, Extreme, Noir de Noir, almost each individual release within the Neroli Portofino line (honorable mentions being also Noir, Noir Extreme, even Black Orchid EDP and White Patchouli if more unisex/androgynous/officially feminine but technically gender versatile choices may also be considered)

    No particular order:
    -Grey Vetiver
    -Italian Cypress
    -Noir Anthracite
    -Tuscan Leather
    -Mandarino di Amalfi

    Grey Vetiver & Mandarino di Amalfi remain on the list as I don't have anything else that substitutes them when I want them. The other 3 could be replaced on the list at any moment with others that Ford does nearly as well.

    Ombre Leather is good if you're interested in a lighter version of Tuscan Leather. Costa Azura is a good one too. 4711 takes care of the Neroli Portofino itch for me. And really Halston branded Z-14 takes care of the Tuscan Leather itch.

    Noir de Noir - one of my all-time favorites
    London - kind of like a very low volume Amouage
    Grey Vetiver - modernized version of Guerlain's Vetiver
    Noir Antracite - dark green scent that stands out among designers
    Vert des Bois - another dark green one, pseudo-woody

    Vert d'Encens, Vert de Fleur, and Oud Fleur are among my favorites as well.

    No particular order:

    Italian Cypress

    Plum Japonais
    Noir de Noir
    Mandarino di Amalfi

    Tobacco Vanille and Costa Azzura could both be there as well. I really like a fair number of the private blends.

    Tom Ford for Men would be in my top 5 if it weren't so weak on my skin. Noir Anthracite is just outside the top 5, Noir Extreme has really grown on me.

    I have a sample of Fougere d'Argent which impressed me but I need more wearings.

    In order

    Plum Japonais

    Costa Azzura
    Oud Fleur
    Tobacco Oud

    Haven't tried Vert D'Encens. Heard good things and I love incense. I'm sure it'd make the top 5 if I tried it.

    There's a lot I haven't tried, pretty much everything after the original Private Blend's from 07,08, and 09.

    Glad I own my whole list pretty much. I have Arab Tradition instead of Tuscan Leather, which is the exact same thing for 95% less.. I will probably never buy Tobacco Vanille, just too much money for a frag I will rarely reach for. If I could find a legit clone of it with the same performance as Arab Tradition is to Tuscan Leather, I would be head over heels.
