Tom Ford Soleil de Feu

«Soleil de Feu is a smoldering amber woody scent evoking sunset light. It is the most sensual expression of soleil.» – Tom Ford

Tom Ford launches Soleil De Feu as the latest addition to the Private Blend collection . It joins the family of sun-inspired fragrances, that includeSoleil Blanc (2016), Soleil Neige (2019), and Soleil Brûlant (2021).

Soleil de Feu is an amber woody scent that evokes the molten sun descending in a burnished blaze over the sea, painting the sky with fiery strokes of bronze solar light. This is the most sensual expression of the Soleil perfume. Notes of sandalwood are enhanced with tuberose and warm ambers, resulting in a seductive and sensual fragrance. Personally speaking this scent could have been crafted specifically for me. It has all some of my favorite notes with a beautiful oriental touch.

Available as Eu de Parfums 30ml, 50ml, and 250ml Decanter.
