Tom Ford released the Private Blend Les Extraits Verts Collection last year, which comprised of 4 green-themed fragrances. 3 of them were released here in Singapore last Fall [read here], and the 4th – Vert de Fleur has only very recently hit counters.
Like most of Tom Ford’s fragrances, Vert de Fleur is intended to be unisex, but it is by far the lightest and most floral of the Les Extraits Verts Collection. It was inspired by ’70s glamour, and has a rather boudoir-esque air of intimacy. At first spritz, I was mesmerized by the unbridled play on florals… iris and hyacinth enchant with their shy sweetness, amped up by orange blossom and neroli. It is an unusual floral bouquet that lingers for awhile before the usual suspects of jasmine and rose floats up as a cloud.
A smokey base of galbanum and vetiver brings Vert de Fleur closer to the gents, and personally I love borrowing fragrance notes from my better half. As the scent settles, oakmoss and patchouli emerge, bringing with them a damp, earthy sensuality.
Tom Ford Vert de Fleur has moderate sillage and lasts about 6 hours on me before fading gently. Of the Les Extraits Verts Collection, I find Vert de Fleur sits best on my skin, but I would really love to catch a whiff of this on a man. Try it out for yourself at Tom Ford counters in Singapore now.
