Every once in a while it’s nice to lớn throw restraint to lớn the wind. This is why molten chocolate desserts, lipstick lượt thích red patent leather, & Douglas Sirk movies exist. Khổng lồ me, Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme, with its over-the-top nutty sweetness, fits this category.

Noir Pour Femme’s notes include mandarin, bitter orange, ginger, rose absolute, jasmine accord, orange blossom, Indian kulfi accord, Madagascar vanilla, amber, Australian sandalwood, và lentisque resinoid. (Indian kulfi is a rich, dairy-based frozen dessert; lentisque is an evergreen shrub; và a resinoid is the extract of a shrub.) Perfumer Sonia Constant developed it.

Noir Pour Femme is a gourmand oriental fragrance. At its heart is a thick woody-ambery tobacco scent — whether it actually has tobacco or if it’s a play of the notes, I don’t know — wrapped in hazelnut dust & bittersweet chocolate. It’s dense và sweet. If the fragrance’s vi xử lý core were an object, it would be a cocoa brown velvet mattress.

At the perfume’s edges are a bit of orange & a bare veil of rose và jasmine that don’t lighten the fragrance much, but that remind you that Noir Pour Femme is a perfume and not a cake. These floral notes are dwarfed by the fragrance’s whole package, though, sort of like a hippo wearing lacy socks. You see the hippo first.

Within an hour on my skin, the fragrance telescopes lớn a woody vanilla amber with robust sillage. In the heat, Noir Pour Femme could asphyxiate an entire tram’s passengers, but in cool weather it would wear warm & silky. It lasts about five hours before I have to lớn press my nose lớn my arm for a hint of vanilla.

If you lượt thích Tom Ford black Orchid except for the fruit, or if Yves Saint Laurent Opium appeals lớn you but you’d rather it were less spicy & more delicious, you might want khổng lồ try Noir Pour Femme.

Although there’s definitely a time lớn indulge, sometimes eating the whole molten chocolate cake or living up khổng lồ the shiny red lips for an entire day is too much. Like these things, Noir Pour Femme might be best taken in small doses. It’s easy to lớn love, but easy to overdo. This is a fragrance I’d like to have in a mini or a 10 ml decant. I’d set it next khổng lồ my mini of Chopard Casmir Parfum và wait for snow.


Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme Eau de Parfum is available in 30 ml ($85); 50 ml ($115); và 100 ml ($165) sizes.
