As you may know or may not know, my absolute favourite perfume ever is Black Orchid by Tom Ford, I’ve been wearing it for a few years now and I’ve found plenty of scents I love, but none quite as much. I recently visited the new Tom Ford counter in Jarrolds Norwich and had a chance to try out Tom Ford’s Private Blend Collection.
I’ve never had a chance to sample the Private Blends before, as they are only available online or at Tom Ford counters, and my nearest counter was previously in London which is way quite a way to go just to try a perfume! So I was so excited when the new Tom Ford counter recently opened in Jarrolds Norwich! If you’re not familiar with Private Blends, they are a unique collection of scents, I’d definitely describe them as ‘marmite’ perfumes; you’ll either love them or hate them. Some can seem quite strong and over powering, some seem quite odd, and have unusual notes and are definitely an aquired taste. Others though, are simply fabulous 🙂
Tom Ford has gradually added to the original collection of 12 Private Blends, and after trying out all the scents, surprisingly I wasn’t actually that keen on most of them, but I completely fell in love with Jasmin Rouge which was added to the collection in 2011 along with the launch of Tom Ford makeup. The sales assistant described it as ‘Jessica Rabbit in a bottle’ and it really is!
Described as ‘Voluptuous. Sensuous. Audacious. Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge is a voluptuous, saturated, spiced floral. An unexpected blend of precious sambac jasmine sepals absolute, an ingredient never used before in perfumery with dusky clary sage and rich spices, it unveils a new facet of jasmine’s erotic decadence. Jasmin Rouge is as audacious as lacquered red lips. Its deep red bottle evokes lush and hedonistic glamour.’
How amazing does that sound!?
I am completely in love with this, and I’ve started wearing it every day, oops! It’s pretty expensive so I really should save it for special occasions only!! Have you tried Tom Ford’s Private Blends?
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
