I’m one of those people who cannot leave the house without having a few squirts of cologne sprayed over myself. Whether i’m going to the gym, going out for dinner or popping to the local supermarket. It’s a die hard habit that has just stuck. For this reason I also have different colognes for all those occasions. I mean, I would love to spray Yves Saint Laurent over myself before heading to the gym but that’s just a bit silly.
A brand i’ve been growing some insane love for over the past few years is Tom Ford. From their incredible clothing, to their remarkable skincare and scents. It’s a luxury brand that has slowly but surely expanded in the right way. I’m a huge fan of their men’s concealer and now I won’t use anything else.
Out of the range of colognes they have available at Tom Ford, i’ve picked out three staple scents that I think anyone should have. When I mean anyone, I mean both gents and ladies. Tom Ford’s scents are unisex and can be worn by both genders. So ladies, do read on.
My favourite of all (which I have a extra big bottle of) is the Tom Ford Neroli Portofino. It has a fresh, citrusy scent. Like an Italian port, mixed with aroma of lemon trees in the wind, met with the scent of vineyards and fresh oranges from the market. I would certainly say it is a scent that I would typically wear in summer.
I love the sweet vanilla tones, musky cognac tones of the Tom Ford Champaca absolute. It has a light smell of sandalwood, but not enough to notice it when wearing it. I’m not normally a fan of sandal wood but I adore this scent. The packaging symbolises the scent in a way. I would say this scent is a dapper gent dressed in all black, with a mysterious yet charming look about him. The fragrance isn’t too intense, so it would be a scent I would wear at a formal or black tie event.
Tom Ford Jasmine Rouge is a gorgeous sweet, floral scent. It has an added bit of spice. Quite an erotic scent especially with the packaging dressed in red. Definitely an intense prima donna scent (in a really good way), if you want that extra pop. I would say it is typically a spring scent, when all the flowers are in full bloom but a definite date night fragrance.
Have you tried any of the Tom Ford scents? If so, which is your favourite?
Until next time…
