    Harrods has been getting a lot of interesting exclusives lately.
    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.

    Very exciting. Green is a slightly different direction for Tom Ford. If they turn out well, it will definitely round out his offerings. My wife may like one as well.

    Indeed - I was surprised to see that he hadn't really done any green fragrances since the legendary Gucci Envy. Hopefully we'll see something along those lines!

    LOL! And THAT one wasn't just green - it was fluorescent green!

    Yes - I have some vintage middle-period Envy and it's amazing stuff. One of the best ginger fragrances ever, IMO. Imagine something of intensity like that, with some healthy cut grass and intense herbal notes, and we're looking at more modern equivalents of Bond no.9 Riverside Drive, or Bois d'Orage. The Vert version of Noir? Could be awesome!

    Veeeerry interesting. I don't think anyone can say that the folks at TF don't try crazy new things.

    Hopefully we'll see these stateside before too long . . .

    Not a fan of Tom Ford Private Blends generally, but this one sounds interesting.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm interested to see the other 3 in the series. A few days ago I was wondering why there wasn't a private blend based on vetiver. I mean, Grey Vetiver is great but I'd like to see what else they could do.

    Oh no, I like green. Lead me not unto temptation...
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    From Persolaise again, the four fragrances are:

    Vert de Fleur
    Vert de Bois
    Vert Bogeme (possibly 'Boheme'?)
    Vert d'Encens

    What would constitute Un Vert Bohème? Patchouli with mint and citrus? Other than Sahara Noir, has TF done an incense before? What would make incense notes green?

    Bois Marocain was incense and cypress ... effectively a green incense.

    Another green incense, so to speak, is CDG Zagorsk, incense plus pine.

    Tom Ford had some green also in the floral group, the hyacinth and the jonquil. Unfortunately, the green part disappeared rather quickly in both of them, so let's hope this time it's better.

    Green usually means galbanum, so possibly here we'll have galbanum + rose, galbanum + woods, galbanum + patch, and galbanum + incense.

    Thanks for sharing the info! I'm usually not the biggest "green" scents lover but I often love TF's fragrances. So I'll be looking forward to trying them. Maybe one of them to replace Italian Cypress.

    Based on Neroli Portofino, Grey Vetiver, and Bois Marocain, I think Tom Ford will have some very good releases in this new "green" line. I am very much looking forward to them.

    Italian Cypress and Moss Breches smell green to me and I'm glad he introduces some more green scents.

    That was an awesome scent. Pocketbook and availability never quite met on that one for me, but memorable sniffing for sure.

    Moss Breches was another FANTASTIC scent! Loved it.

    Agree - very sad that one was discontinued. One of the best in the line IMO.

    Looking forward to this. For months I have been searching for a good green scent that is worthy of being added to my collection, but have not found it yet. Maybe one of these will be it. Ever since smelling Creed's Fueille Verte (the original batch from 2006, which is no longer available), I have been in search of the right green scent.
