TOM FORD Ombré Leather Parfum

«Some scents explicitly capture real aspects of my life. For example, every note of OMBRÉ LEATHER is connected to the American west of my childhood. The PARFUM builds on the wild, unbridled sensuality of the original scent…it is a heightened expression.» – Tom Ford

Tom Ford just launched the newest perfume edition, OMBRÉ LEATHER PARFUM, a warm and spicy rich floral leather scent for women and men, which captures the American west with magnified notes of violet leaf, cedarwood, and green tobacco. Perfumer Sonia Constant composed both, the original OMBRÉ LEATHER and the new OMBRÉ LEATHER PARFUM.

Building on the untethered, tactile sensuality of the original scent, OMBRÉ LEATHER PARFUM intensifies the distinctly rich, luxurious leather signature with surprising new additions. Violet leaf absolute orpur breathes a powerful, intensely green air, giving way to the elegant, woody sensuality of cedarwood. Harvested before the monsoon season to produce an elevated extract, jasmine sambac absolute India orpur offers an intense, fruity floral facet recalling honeysuckle. Deep leathery and woody notes laced with green tobacco undercut the floralcy, stoking a creamy sensuality while a double concentration of orris heart pulses beneath, releasing a captivating, addictive pull.

Key Notes: Black Leather, Violet Flower, Jasmine Flower

About the Bottle: Packaged in a matte-black flacon with a faux-leather plaque, the OMBRÉ LEATHER PARFUM flacon captures the bold, tactile sensuality of the spicy leather scent.

Personal Recommendation: I love combining it with TOM FORD Lavender Extrême. It is such an interesting combo.

Available in the beginning of September 2021 in Switzerland.
OMBRÉ LEATHER PARFUM 50ml (CHF 156.00) and 100ml (CHF 256.00).

Jo Malone’s Newest Scent: Blackberry & Bay

Blackberry & bay

Jo Malone‘s newest scent is called Blackberry & Bay. Think about childhood memories of blackberry picking with stained lips and sticky palms – the scent of innocence.

TW_JMBlackberry_R21F11

Master perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, who shares his time between Paris and Grasse, where he was born as the son of a perfumer, found the inspiration for this beautiful, different new fragrance “out of rambling, autumnal country walks in deepest, mellowest autumn; of blackberry picking in overgrown English woodland; of foraging for perfectly ripened blackberries in rustling hedgerows. I have always wanted to create a fruity fragrance that captures the richness of red and black berries and so I embarked on this journey to create a scent that is full of juicy sweetness, bursting with the sparkling tartness of just ripe blackberries, while playing with the green, leafy earthiness of the bay accord.”
Fabrice also created Paco Rabanne’s Black XS L’Excès.

Top notes: Blackberry and grapefruit
Middle notes: Bay and floral accord
Base notes: Vetiver and cedarwood

Available from September 2012.
In Switzerland at Globus Geneva and Jelmoli Zurich.

I love this new addition to Jo Malone’s world. Try combining Blackberry & Bay with Lime Basil & Mandarin for added vibrancy with a peppery, citrus zest. Or layer it with Nectarine Blossom & Honey for sweetness with a green, herbaceaous edge.
