Fragrance Description: Charismatic, urbane, and sophisticated, TOM FORD Noir Extreme opens on a devastatingly rich blend of spicy heat and glowing citrus. Dextrous brushstrokes of mandarin oil and neroli oil North Africa orpur® provide sharp contrast to the vibrant, synergistic blend of saffron, cardamom and nutmeg. At the heart of the fragrance is tantalizing Indian kulfi—an accord inspired by the ancient royal concoction prepared for 16th century Mughal emperors. This milky creation, which traditionally consists of Himalayan snow combined with hints of pistachio, is delivered unexpectedly into the core of the fragrance via lentisque resinoid, which is chosen for its crisp, cool, yet lactonic effect. an array of floral notes—rose absolute, jasmine accord and orange flower—radiate like rare gems on virgin snow. A woody, amber-drenched impact defines the dry down, where an extreme amber dosage silhouettes the other background notes like dusky sunlight. This addictive amber cushion is studded with elegant sandalwood and a melting vanilla ember, enigmatically sustaining the gem-hard masculine fire.
About the Fragrance: "Noir Extreme captures the daring, opulent side of the Noir man. He knows his desires, his vices, and what brings him pleasure and relishes in the indulgence of it. It is this private side he reserves for himself, at its maximum expression."—TOM FORD
