This week I paid a visit to Tom Ford counter to meet their Private Blend Perfume Collection which is finally arrived in Romania. I’ve been a Tom Ford perfume fan for years and my favorite fragrance that I repurchase every time is Tom Ford Black Orchid (100 ml for 593.00 Lei and 50 ml for 417.00 Lei) so I had to see the private blend line in person. I’m going to talk a little bit about all 3 collections which are: Private Blend Collection, Private Blend White Musk Collection and Private Blend Neroli Portofino Collection.
I’ve tested all the 12 perfumes and I must say I’m loving most of them for their strong and persistent scent and I brought home with me scent strips of each EDP and even now after 4 days I can sense the smell in my room. Each EDT from the Private Blend Collection comes in a 50 ml/ 1.7 oz bottle and retails for 850.00 Lei. The price is definitely on the luxury side even for me that I’m more addicted to perfumes than makeup and I try to freshen up my collection as often as I can but I believe the medium size 50 ml bottle will last almost as long as one of my normal 100 ml perfumes would because the scent is so persistent and you need only a puff or two. All the EDT from the each of the 3 Private Blend collections is unisex so you can buy only a bottle in case you and your partner like the same fragrance.
The Private Blend Perfume Collection is available exclusively at Estee Lauder boutique on Calea Victoriei while the classical women’s fragrance collection is sold also at Sephora and Douglas perfumeries.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Collection includes 6 products like shower gel, body moisturizer, body oil, body scrub, bath bar and the Eau de Parfum but in Romania only the 50 ml/ 1.7 oz EDP (850.00 Lei) is currently available.
Neroli Portfofino EDP, Tom Ford’s reinvention of a classic eau de cologne, instantly evokes the seductive essence of the Italian coast. Inspired by and infused with this exhilarating scent, the Neroli Portofino collection of bath and body products revitalizes and nourishes the skin with nature-rich ingredients such as olive fruit oil, grape seed oil and date seed extract that are indigenous to the Mediterranean.
Tom Ford Private Blend White Musk Collection normally includes 4 fragrance but for the time being in Romania are available only the Musk Pure EDP and Jasmine Musk EDP in 50 ml bottles. They are both soft and sensual fragrances that can be worn during spring and summer.
Musk Pure EDP represents musk of naked sensuality. With notes of sparkling citrus, fresh florals and alluring musk, this transcendent fragrance captures the essence of innocent sensuality.
Jasmin Musk EDP is the musk of soft seduction. The intoxicating mix of heady florals ylang and jasmine, smooth vanilla, earthy patchouli and sensuous musk makes this undeniably lush fragrance a favorite of both men and women.
Tom Ford Private Blend Collection features 13 scents while in Romania only 10 are available as 50 ml/1.7 oz EDP (850.00 Lei) and they are unisex fragrances.
Tobacco Vanille EDP is modern take on an old world men’s club. A smooth Oriental, Tobacco Vanille opens immediately with opulent essences of Tobacco Leaf and aromatic spice notes. The heart unfolds with creamy Tonka Bean, Tobacco Flower, Vanilla and Cocoa, and finishes with A Dry Fruit Accord, enriched with Sweet Wood Sap. It’s a sweet oriental spicy fragrance that I would wear during the cold months.
Tuscan Leather EDP is a Chypre blend of notes that brings a raw, yet reserved sensuality to this original take on a classic leather scent. Saffron, Raspberry and Thyme open to Olibanum and Night Blooming Jasmine. Leather, Black Suede and Amberwood add an intricate richness. I really like the smell of leather accords in a fragrance and Tuscan Leather is among my favorite scents with a magic combination of flowers, leather and woody notes.
Oud Wood EDP. Exotic Rose Wood and Cardamom, blended with exuberant Chinese Pepper, envelop the wearer in warmth. Eventually, the center exposes a smokey blend of rare Oud Wood, Sandalwood and Vetiver. Finally, the creamy scents of Tonka Bean, Vanilla and Amber are revealed. This is a special fragrance and liked by those who favorite woody and warm spicy accords. I would wear this scent all year long.
Azure Lime EDP is a sparkling Eau Fraiche fragrance that gives a fresh, unexpected spin to timeless essences. Vibrant Citrus notes, sophisticated Florals, warm Woods and sensual Musk evoke the easy elegance and relaxed style of the paradisical island of Mustique. This is a truly summer scent.
Arabian Wood EDP captures the mystique of the east with modern flourishes. A lavish blend of rich Florals, Spices, precious Woods and exotic Orris entice the senses while aromatic Lavender and Galbanum add a touch of elegance.
Black Violet EDP. Crisp Citrus surrounds a modern pulpy Fruit Accord, fused with Black Violets. Woody accents fold into Oakmoss adding the universally comforting sensation of warmth. Those who love woody and powdery notes must definitely check out this scent.
Cafe Rose EDP is an oriental floral fragrance that was launched in 2012. Top notes are saffron, black pepper and may rose; middle notes are turkish rose, bulgarian rose and coffee; base notes are incense, amber, sandalwood and patchouli. This is in my opinion one of the most discreet scents from Tom Ford Private Blend Collection and is a fragrance that I would wear in any season.
Ombre de Hyacinth EDP is a perfume with green, floral and balmy accords for both men and women. Top notes are galbanum, violet leaf, magnolia petals and olibanum; middle notes are hyacinth, pink pepper and jasmine; base notes are galbanum, benzoin and musk. This is also a scent that can be worn in every season.
Lys Fume EDP has white floral, balmy, sweet and soft spicy accords which makes it an interesting, special and unique fragrance. The combination notes very carefully chosen makes Lys Fume a distinct and discreet fragrance suitable for the warm season. Top notes are italian mandarin , pink pepper, turmeric and nutmeg; middle notes are white lily, ylang-ylang, artemisia and rum; base notes are madagascar vanilla, labdanum, styrax and oak.
