Whenever I don't want to test scents for different reasons, I don't feel like writing, or when things get on my nerves, I get a scent around the corner that makes me curious, inspires me and almost makes me need to be described
Today I had the opportunity to test this new Tom Ford fragrance and what can I say...WHAT a beautiful fragrance! Tom made it once again and inspired the little Schoork.
There are still the wonderful new releases, there have always been them and only those who look right or smell will find them.
Here it is denounced again and again that only uniform porridge appears on the market and that everything used to be better. Looking at my own collection I can only deny that, there are lots of scents from the last 5 years, this decade or at least this century. I may have a modern nose, I don't know, but even if one or the other calls me a philistine now, I can't do much with the so-called classics. Be it in the women's area Shalimar and its relatives, or in the men's area the whole fragrance water Knize Ten or whatever.
I can not, does not reach me and I have also little desire on Zibet, cat piss or other animal contents materials a Hornochse times excreted. However, I would never say a bad word as I recognize that these fragrances have been worn for decades and have a right to exist. But I don't have to like it and I fight with all my might against the fact that today there is hardly anything good left, that's not true, it's more due to the corresponding noses or simply to an anti-posture. I like Newschool.
In the past not everything was better, only the selection was smaller, so that you have to take a closer look today. That's the way it is, and it's the consumer's fault. At the beginning the Golf was only available in one version until the convertible came, then there were estate cars, country cars, Golf Plus etc...all things that were demanded. It's good to find, but you don't have to. And yes I'd also rather have a '68 Dodge Challenger, but the new ones are also strong.
Who lives presently in the past, should not be surprised, if the future brings nothing new.
And that brings me to the new fragrance from Tom Ford. For many, Tom Ford is too opulent, wants too much of everything, seems overloaded and decadent.
That can be and is up to everyone to decide, for me it is one of the newer brands that reach me continuously. Sometimes it lasts, like for example Noir Anthracite, sometimes it clicks immediately like for Tobacco Vanilla or Noir de Noir.
Today it clicked again and how!
The bottle in mirrored metal keeps its promise. The fragrance starts fresh with flowers and then quickly becomes powdery and sweeter. The whole thing actually becomes a touch metallic, if you will, that's hard to describe, but fascinating. Imagine you're wearing a chain and spraying a powdery vanilla perfume on your neck, the chain should smell like this.
Sounds weird now, but it's not.
But that's only in the background, because at the front the vanilla plays the greater role, first through heliotrope, later through the balsamic. Yes, it develops into a real cuddler, caused by vanilla, Peru balsam and then finishes woody.
This is really great done and I am no one who is very fast to inspire, but he can really something.
The balsamic at the end reminds me again easily of scents like Grand Soir or Dior Addict and how I find these scents is well known.
For me one of the best new releases this year, even if I don't know all of them this year
The question arises whether this is really only intended for ladies. Well for me he is quite feminine and I personally would rather see him on the neck of a beautiful woman (mine). The fragrance invites you to go out, but also to cuddle and will have its best time in autumn/winter.
Of course, everyone is free to wear whatever they want, but I can only stress again and again that for me such fragrances on a woman are simply much more beautiful.
So ladies, if you're just doing nothing and you're still looking for a beautiful flatterer, I recommend the Métallique. Your partner will thank you.
The durability is tidy and you will be noticed. Promise!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to enjoy the fragrance as long as it's there.
