Scent of the Day: Noir Pour Femme by Tom Ford Perfume Review

Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme Perfume Review

Tom Ford’s Noir Pour Femme is one of those ‘fumes that you spray on your wrist and can’t stop sniffing all day long. It is addicting, seductive, alluring, extravagant… A staple scent that should be included in any Floriental lover’s perfume collection. When it comes to autumn floral-oriental type scents I’ve always been drawn to Armani Code for women, but this has become a new favorite. It is deeper and darker and has a side that is seductive yet completely sophisticated and mature. It has a sweet creaminess that makes it great for the holiday season and you are less likely to run into others wearing your same scent, like you might with Armani Code. Tom Ford’s Noir Pour Femme has met all expectations and attracts fascination from the top to the bottom notes.

Noir Pour Femme opens with a splash of zesty citruses and a touch of ginger then blooms into a powerful heart of rose, jasmine, orange blossom and kulfi. The base is warm and sweet with vanilla, amber and sandalwood that cling to the skin hours after you’ve spritzed. This scent has a great longevity and was built to last during the cooler season. You only need a few sprays and you’ll be smelling sweet all day!

Samples starting at $5.99

5 Scents For School

2016-08-22-1

Dreading the new school year and everything that comes along with it? You’ve spent the whole summer munching ice cream on the couch, binge watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix and living in your swim suit and now it’s time to pick up the pace and focus on your school work. Instead of dreading the new school year, let’s think of going to class as an excuse to get ready. Brush your hair, throw on some glossy lip balm and spritz yourself with perfume. When you look good and smell good, you feel good! You want your classmates to thank you for covering the stench of the guy who just came from gym, but you don’t want them hating you for spraying an obtrusive, unbearable scent. Some fragrances may be too strong or too sweet for a class room setting, but we’ve got the perfect 5 that will get you through the semester.

  1. Si Eau de Toilette by Giorgio Armani

Si Eau de Toilette

The Eau de Parfum version may have been a little too strong for a class room setting, but the Eau de Toilette version is perfect for close quarters. It is fresher, a bit lighter and totally bearable. Spray one or two spritz and you are good to go. This is refreshing, lightly floral and fruity, with just a touch of vanilla and patchouli. A young and fun scent that is also delicate and feminine.

2. Wood Sage & Sea Salt by Jo Malone

For something that goes great in fall, but is also reminiscent of the days you spent at beach this summer, you could try Wood Sage & Sea Salt. This is refreshing, sweet and earthy salt air in a bottle. It is cozy, warm and sensuous. It stays close to the skin and reminds us of lazy days by the sea. Try spraying on your clothes for better longevity.
