Tom *Yum*...
Tom Yum skips any top notes to speak of, instead moving directly to its highly aromatic heart comprised of a starring herbal-citrus combination of kaffir lime leaf, lemon-like lemongrass and natural smelling, sharp lemon and lime with significant gingery galangal spice support and hints of creamy coconut milk. The composition stays highly linear through its development, with the kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass driven aromatics remaining through most of the composition's lifespan, very gradually giving way to the slightly nutty chalood bark finish. Projection is below average to average, with below average longevity of 4-6 hours on skin.

Tom Yum (the perfume) may not really be a gourmand, but the name based on the highly aromatic Thai Hot and Sour soup dish does do a fabulous mouth watering job of making the wearer crave the soup, while being equally successful as a fine, natural smelling Eau de Cologne style composition that is completely wearable and heavenly. It is really hard to describe one of the two key drivers of the composition, kaffir lime leaf, but anyone familiar with Thai food (and certainly Tom Yum) will know what to expect and will find it very believable smelling here. The lemongrass is the other key driver, and when combined with the kaffir lime, the two just seem made for each other. While not listed in the perfume notes, another component of Tom Yum soup, coconut milk, makes a subtle appearance to further strengthen the believably of the "dish." Alas, as fine as the composition smells, its 100% natural ingredient strength from a believability perspective is its performance downfall. If I had one wish, it would be that the perfumer would have added just a bit of synthetics to the mix to aid performance. As is, the composition is fantastic smelling, just short-lived. The bottom line is the $140 per 30ml bottle Tom Yum is an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 rated composition that is as mouth watering to wear, as is its Thai soup namesake to consume, earning it a strong recommendation to lovers of the soup, or just superb smelling aromatic Eau de Cologne style compositions in general.

Short Trip to Thailand
Three of the six new Prissanas are citrus fragrances. Everyone is at home in a different, own topic. While Tiwa with tangerine and aldehydes is rather powdery and citric, Natsumeku rings in the summer in Japan with yuzu and incense.

Tom Yum, on the other hand, is based on the ingredients of the famous Thai soup, which gives it its name. But don't worry, the fragrance doesn't build any food associations. Rather, this fragrance is beautifully fresh with ginger and lemongrass and wonderfully light green-yellow with herbs.

The chalood bark plays a decisive role in the entire fragrance process. It is woody, but also has the smoky component of real vanilla. Therefore the fragrance is at the same time exotic, fresh and yet somehow very friendly and radiant, well known. Whether he reminds us of a visit to Thailand or just to the Thai restaurant doesn't matter.

It is a symbol for a short break in the nose.
Fresh and radiant with very good shelf life and good sillage.
