Spicy soup...
Tom Ford, the brand that launches perfumes faster than we have time to chronicle them...
A real collection !!!!
A brand that, historically, release perfumes like a baker takes breads out of the oven.
Okay, let's get straight into the heart of the matter as usual.
I had already been somewhat disappointed by the latest creations of the sumptuous, wonderful, iconic and cult Private Blend collection.
Bitter Peach and its super sweet scents of peach candy...
Tubéreuse Nue and its Ylang Ylang/Monoï imprint undeniably reminding me of a shower gel from Yves Rocher...
And now, here we go again with this Soleil Brûlant.
Finally... Soleil Brûlant only "burning" in the name.
This new 2021 scent gave me the impression of sniffing spicy vegetable soup...
Rather interesting on paper, the olfactory pyramid is described as containing pink pepper, bergamot, tangerine, honey, resin, amber, vetiver, leather, etc etc...
My first impression was quite... Spicy.
Pink pepper in the lead, maybe a little too much...
As for the bergamot, tangerine, honey and amber, i only detect a tiny ounce of tangerine in the background, and when i say in the background, it's really well stashed.
For the rest, it's pretty boring...
It stays spicy for a while.
To once again give you a realistic idea of Soleil Brûlant, imagine a mix of cloves, turmeric and celery. Yea Yea !!
Strange you say to me for a fragrance containing as only spice, pink pepper...
To give you even more the olfactory idea of ​​the fragrance, think of this soup on a winter evening and these vegetables that you have previously cut and that you are about to lock up in your pressure cooker to make it boil it all.
Add a big and nice pinch of ground clove, a cup of turmeric, 20 stalks of celery at least, a light, i mean light drop of tangerine essential oil, sprinkle the whole thing with a little leather coupled with vetiver, and you will get more or less the recipe of that Soleil Brûlant.
The positive point is all the same a beautiful drying, more suited to summer than winter, because it must be remembered, in my humble opinion, Soleil Brûlant is NOT a summer scent. (Or else only outdoors)
Unless you like to smell the spices by 104°...
In terms of longevity and sillage, it's... Average to moderate.
So i ask myself the following question:
Of TOM FORD's latest creations, this one is unfinished, incomplete, disappointing for a collection like Private Blend and its legendary fragrances.
The bottle, as shiny as a gold bar, would be worth its exorbitant price on its own.
As for the content, that will be up to you.
On the other hand, lovers of called "solar" perfumes will be delighted.
Soleil Brûlant remains a scent that is difficult to describe, but from the first sniffs, it will be enough for you to form an opinion.
I know almost all of the Private Blend in its entirety, and apart from a few fragrances like TF London (the only one that really makes me sick because it's too spicy and smelling of cat piss), Vanille Fatale (one more too sickening and heady) ), Soleil Brûlant and its "vegetable soup" side, the entire Private Blend is class embodied in all its splendor.
So, Soleil Brûlant is therefore not a fragrance that will proudly stand in my collection.
Very sincerely, i think that TF is moving away little by little, and more and more, from its original creations which made its success.
The sumptuous and iconic creations of Noir de Noir, Oud Minérale, Oud Wood, Tobacco Vanille, Plum Japonais, Shanghai Lily, Vert d'Encens to name just a few of them, in comparison with this Soleil Brûlant, we are at light years...
It remains to be seen whether the next creations will be in the continuity of those of 2020/2021...
Too sweet, too much this, too much that, i think it will be a good future debate.
So please, Uncle Tom, a return to the origins will be necessary.
Conclusion: It's up to you, but for almost $300, that's expensive for a bunch of vegetables...
For the skeptics, NO, Soleil Brûlant has NOTHING to do with Soleil Blanc, even less with Eau de Soleil Blanc, and nothing at all with Soleil Neige.
For fans fanatics of TF fragrances of which i am a part, and more particularly of the Private Blend, try it.
For me, it's a No.
For those in need of vitamins, will you take a bowl of soup?
My rating: 6/10

The story with Tom and the sun
Yes what can I say, I like Tom Ford fragrances.

Alas.

Because the pricing and the durability often leave much to be desired. That's why I own only Lost Cherry and Black Orchid as a bottle and a few others again and again in alternation as a bottling or sample.

Soleil Brûlant so. Tom Ford seems to like the sun yes, is not the first fragrance with him "Soleil" in the name. I'm not really a fan of when perfume houses try to reinvent one of their perfumes over and over again or make some kind of collection out of it, because often the fragrances then smell somehow always like the original, just with ner additional note. I don't like that.
However, here only the bergamot is the same as in Soleil Blanc and even so I do not really recognize parallels. An independent fragrance, so to speak.

Let's move on to the opening. The first thing I notice is the pepper and tangerine. A lot of pepper. Almost too much, but just scraped the curve by the sweet tangerine. In fact, I had expected something completely different by the bottle design and the name, more in the direction of Scandal by the honey and the citrus, more gourmand, so to speak. The is but initially not so.
After half an hour comes good incense and honey to the fore, the slightly acrid pepper smell is then already gone. From then on it goes then also rather in the expected gourmand direction. Sunscreen I smell thereby not at all out, but I always use rather tropical-scented sunscreens.

Overall, a nice fragrance, I like the combination of incense and honey, such as in Oud de Carthage , so I find it quite portable and pleasant.
The durability I also find better succeeded than in some other Tom Ford perfumes, but the fragrance is definitely not room-filling.
Whether he will move in with me, however, in the bottle? Probably rather not, for that he is just too expensive for me, because I stay first with my filling

Ambre Solaire
I always choose one new fragrance to add to my Summer Wardrobe and I chose this one this year. Now this reminds me of sun tan oil I used to wear in Spain in the 90's. That's fine by me because I love the smell. This is along the lines of Soleil Blanc which I also like but surprisingly this performs rather well. It's close to the body not a massive projector but has lasted for about 8 hours on me today. It doesn't break any barriers but it is nice. Over priced? 100%. But all of the Private Blends are and its to be expected.

Unfortunately a new boring Tom Ford
I received my bottling of Soleil Brûlant yesterday. I was really excited about this new Tom Ford, because all the other new Private Blend perfumes were too floral, or too feminine or smelled like iced tea (Bitter Peach). Soleil Brûlant Is better than the other new Tom Ford, but unfortunately not really special or unique. It is simply missing the special with Soleil Brûlant.

Now to the fragrance itself: I smell here initially mandarin bergamot and some pepper. After a few minutes, the woody notes come along with a strong amber and honey note. The other Indicated notes I can not smell unfortunately at all, especially not the leather, this seems to be non-existent.

I think there are clearly better perfumes in this slightly oriental sweet and mild direction. Xerjoff Naxos, Amouage Black Iris, Xerjoff Ouverture etc. These are all also much cheaper and smell better than Soleil Brûlant in my opinion, and also have a longer shelf life and silage. Soleil Brûlant is not weak 6-7 hours are possible without problems, but other perfumes in this direction often create over 10 hours. The price is already outrageous in my opinion, especially for the 50 Ml version. Tom Ford moves now partly almost already on Roja level in view of the price.
I can say here unfortunately really only again that I also find this new Tom Ford not really great, it lacks here really the special to justify this price. Soleil Brûlant Shows unfortunately again that Tom Ford moves in the wrong direction, really horrendous prices for average or partly even bad perfumes. I just miss great new perfumes like Lost Cherry, Mandarino di amalfi, etc..

Sweet, spicy, fresh, resinous
First wearing of the latest release from the Tom Ford Private Blend collection, Soleil Brulant, which follows Soleil Blanc, Eau de Soleil Blanc, and Soleil Neige as another offering using the “sun” name. While Soleil Blanc conjured a beachy, sun tan lotion vibe and Soleil Neige was inspired by fresh, sparkling snow, Soleil Brulant seems to loosely translate “burning sun,” and there’s certainly something bolder about it that Blanc or Neige before it.

Upon initial spray, it smells of resins and sunflowers, a sort of semi-sweet, semi-floral, fairly dense concoction, and seeing the note breakdown, it sort of makes sense: orange flower, honey, pepper, and other resins. It’s vivacious and slightly spicy while not being fresh per se, but the mix of spicy, sweet, and resinous elements, all while not being too heavy, is very interesting.

It’s priced in the higher echelon of the Tom Ford Private Blend, currently $350 for 50ml, and is available directly from the Tom Ford website as well as department stores like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Macy’s.

Overall it seems to perform well but I’m not so amazed but it that I feel the inclination to buy a bottle, but perhaps just a larger decant to enjoy sometimes. Still, I could this being a major hit with many, as it sorts of works at the intersection of an amber and a fresh spicy men’s fragrance, all while coming off pretty unisex, semi-sweet, and versatile.

Smells like an ambery sun creme. Very flat and not the way we got to know the private blends of TF. Since FF they are going down hill.
