The new fragrance releases from Tom Ford keep on coming and this time it’s Noir Anthracite for AW17. The theme is ‘light in the dark’, and the scent features bergamot and spice against rich black woods such as Cedar wood, Macassar and santal Sri Lanka.
In detail, the fragrance opens with top notes of bergamot, with a spicy cut of cool pepper Sichuan. There is a rich floral heart composed of tuberose, jasmine sambac and the humid green of galbanum. The base is deep and dark with patchouli intertwined in three woods with resinous strength- fine Cedar wood and santal create textural warmth around Indonesian Macassar.
Tom Ford Noir Anthracite is packaged in a signature rectangular Noir Collection bottle made of glass covered in a metallised anthracite colour and finished with ribbed sides debossed with the initials T and F. The Tom Ford Noir logo is stamped in matte black. The rectangular matching cap is ribbed on all sides and stamped with the TF logo. The bottle is packaged in a ribbed metallic gunmetal carton with matte black accents and is available in 50ml/ £82 and 100ml/ £115 flacons.
