Tom Ford Métallique

A fragrance forged with elegant brilliance, TOM FORD MÉTALLIQUE mesmerizes its admirers with a pulsating flash of modern, resolute femininity—willful, luminous, and in full bloom. A high-shine armor of addictive aldehydes envelops its reverberating core notes of sensuous white flowers, like a precious metal Venus in fleurs.

Opening with a burst of lighter-than-air aldehydes, TOM FORD MÉTALLIQUE slips onto skin like an embroidered, armored dress, a metallic sheath that gains even more sparkle from a collision of crisp notes of vert de bergamot and effervescent pink peppercorn.

A lush floral heart beats beneath MÉTALLIQUE’s cool veneer, amplified by a unique juxtaposition of the delicate scent of white blossoms of aubepine—an ancestor of the rose known for its complex, spicy aroma—with delicate notes of muguet and the narcotic-like nectar of heliotrope.

An aura of ambrette seed imparts warmth, while woody inflections of notes of Peru balsam bring richness and depth. Layered with notes of soft vanilla and creamy sandalwood at the dry- down, this creates an addictive, contrasting finish that reinforces the scent’s cocooning, comforting effect and the metallic shimmer of its opening.

The TOM FORD MÉTALLIQUE bottle reflects the radiant beauty of the fragrance. Packaged in a smooth, silver-tone bottle with a gold-tone metallic label and matching cap, the scent is available now in 50ml for CHF 156.00 and 100ml editions for CHF 235.00.

Different, new and interesting, you definitely should give it a try.
