Jasmin Rouge 2013 Color Collection

Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge 2013 Collection

Being a huge fan of Tom Ford‘s Jasmin Rouge scent, I couldn’t have been more excited about the new matching color collection. There almost nothing as sexy as red lips and nails. Cherry or crimson, mix and match, the latest launch for the season is a fun one with names such as Rouge Fatale and Vampire Kiss for your lips while you can paint nails in Trophy Wife (my favorite as seen on my nails below, the perfect red with a hint of pink shimmer) and Shameless. Love it.

Trophy Wife, Tom Ford

Prices are CHF 62.00 for the lipstick and CHF 42.00 for the nail polish.

Paint the Town Red for the Holiday Season


If summer fashion was flavoured with the saccharine sweet – pastels, lace and frills aplenty – prepare to turn to the dark side this winter. Gone for a few weeks are pretty soft shades and in their place come the bold primaries. Cue bright redthe colour of the season and a classic show-stopper – looks best on coats and lips. Invest in vibrant outerwear that will transform every outfit from now to wow!

One of my favourite scents, Jasmin Rouge, is now available in a new 100ml size for CHF 380.-.
And for the holiday season, Tom Ford launches 4 new lipsticks in different shades of red: “Narcotic Rouge”, “Reckless”, “Diabolique” and “Slander” (CHF 62.- each).
Please Santa, pack them all!

To all my US readers, Happy Thanksgiving!

Tom Ford – The Scent of a Woman


I recently stumbled upon this picture of Tom Ford photographed by Nigel Parry for the October issue of GQ Russia in a very ironical way, taking the scent of a woman literally. For all critics, he is not a misogysnist, he is just the king of sex!


Multi-talent Tom Ford is a true fragrance connoisseur and his two new additions to his Private Blend collection are absolutely divine. He is bringing his luxe aesthetic to the world of scents. You have to try them, they are lovely for winter, warm and sensual!



Top notes: Indian spices, cumin, cinnamon, carrot seeds and fenugreek.
Heart notes: Jasmine, ylang-ylang and rose.
Base notes: Australian sandalwood, cedar, benzoin, musk and oud.

TOM FORD SANTAL BLUSH is a mesmerizing, spicy wood oriental designed around the richly textured creaminess of Sandalwood, and contrasted with exotic Eastern spices, intoxicating florals, and sumptuous woods. This is a complex scent with a hypnotic and mysterious pull. Masala spices from India, Cinnamon Bark Oil Sri Lanka ORPUR™, Cumin Seed Oil, Fenugrec Absolute and Carrot Seed Oil, are enriched by a floral blend of Jasmine Absolute, Rose Absolute and Ylang Madagascar. An infusion of richly textured Sandalwood captives, Australian Sandalwood, Benzoin, Agarbois™ and Skin Musks, transport the scent to another level. A nude colored juice displayed in a transparent bottle, Santal Blush expresses a modern earthiness. It is as sensual as beautifully contoured nude skin.

SANTAL BLUSH Decanter 250ml, CHF 660

TF Jasmin


Top notes: Bergamot, mandarin, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, black and white pepper.
Heart notes: Sambac jasmine, broom, neroli, ylang-ylang and clary sage.
Base notes: Mexican vanilla, labdanum, leather, wood and amber notes.

TOM FORD JASMIN ROUGE is a voluptuous, saturated, spiced floral presented in a deep-red bottle. Two bespoke ingredients, Sambac Jasmine Sepals Absolute and Clary Sage Essence, are brought into unexpected union: Together, they create a scent that is hedonistic and erotic. This composition is enhanced with unusual, exotic spices such as Indian ginger, cardamom and cinnamon, and lively florals such as Ylang Ylang, Italian Broom Flower and Neroli. Finally, an accord of Labdanum Resin, Amber and Abstract Woods is wrapped in Vanilla Bean Infusion and Leather to create a sensuous texture. Jasmin Rouge is as audacious as lacquered red lips and dark, smoky eyes.”
