Tom Ford will launch his debut fragrance for men this fall. Tom Ford For Men features…
…cypriol, a root from India said to be used in fragrance for the first time with this project. Ford says it gives his new scent “that slightly dirty, sensual, sexy smell.”
“It’s not the same as natural musk used to be, but it has a bit of something that some people would think slightly dirty,” Ford said. “I think it’s warm and sensual.”
Additional notes include citrus, lemon leaf oil, bergamot, mandarin zest, basil, violet leaves, ginger, orange blossom, black pepper, tobacco leaf, grapefruit blossom, amber, cedar, patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss and leatherwood. The bottle is a clear glass version of the Black Orchid bottle.
Tom Ford For Men will debut at Saks, and will be available in 50 and 100 ml.
Additional launches from Tom Ford this year will include Tom Ford For Men Extreme and Black Orchid Voile de Fleur, a lighter version of Black Orchid with added white flower notes. (via Women’s Wear Daily)
Note: cypriol was also used in L’Artisan Dzongkha.
