Tom Ford Fleur de Portofino, Costa Azzurra, Mandarino di Amalfi Private Blend Eau de Parfum Reviews & Photos

Tom Ford Fleur de Portofino Private Blend Eau de Parfum ($215.00 for 1.7 fl. oz.) begins with an initial burst of crisp bergamot and an almost bitter citrus before it shifts to a smooth, more honeyed citrus with softer floral notes within the first few minutes. This phase is characterized by a sheer, airy quality; it’s not a powerhouse Tom Ford scent (much like the other scents in the Portofino family) while it is worn. It has low sillage and hovers above the skin for most of the wear, though it takes about two and a half for two sprays to become a skin scent, and it lasts about eight hours on me. For those who want a more discreet scent that only they can smell, this is more in line with that preference. The scent doesn’t change much as it wears on: it’s always a lightweight, warm, sweet citrus with white florals.  It is the most floral of the Portofino family and feels the lightest. The scent seemed well-blended, but ultimately simple, with moderate longevity against many fragrances but short longevity relative to other Private Blends.

Arabian Oud Kalemat Eau de Parfum Review & Photos

Arabian Oud Kalemat Eau de Parfum ($59.99 for 3.4 fl. oz.) is described as having the following notes: top — bilberry and anise; middle — rosemary and Kashmir wood; base — musk, sweet amber, honey leaves. I bought this scent-un-smelled on a recommendation from Kafkaesque, though the recommendation was stronger for my husband than for me. It is one of the most elegantly packaged perfumes I’ve personally come across, as it is packaged in a large, rectangular box made to resemble a book. Once opened, with a pull of the brow nribbon, it opens again to reveal the perfume itself.

Tom Ford Tobacco Oud Eau de Parfum & Oud Wood Soap, Body Moisturizer Reviews & Photos

Tom Ford Oud Collection is an expansion of the usage of Oud in Tom Ford’s Private Blend fragrance range, which is centered around Oud Wood. I reviewed that scent a few years ago, and it remains my favorite fragrance of all-time (though it jockeys with Tom Ford’s Amber Absolute and Bois Marocain). There were rumors of Oud Wood being discontinued, but luckily the brand confirmed it was staying in line and merely being repackaged for the Oud collection launch.

Marni Eau de Parfum Review & Photos

Marni Eau de Parfum ($50.00 to $155.00, depending on size) consists of top notes of bergamot, pepper, ginger, and pink peppercorn; heart notes of cardamom, rose, and cinnamon bark; and bottom notes of patchouli, incense, vetiver, and cedarwood.  When I initially opened up the box and tested it (on a whim, really, because I hadn’t even photographed it), I had no idea what to expect, but I was so very pleasantly surprised to find it an intriguing, nearly unisex scent that delivers on its promise.
