Vert Des Bois
Brand Tom Ford
Unique and provocative, Vert des Bois represents a new evolution for green scents- a refreshingly avant-garde combination of woods, aromatics and florals as distinct as it is versatile. Opening with clean buds of poplar and a boozy ouzo accord, Vert des Bois is quickly enriched with the smell of anise, along with rich, sweet plum and robust, rustic olive leaf. Behind this compellingly diverse, fresh beginning, a rich heart of white florals thrums with unisex elegance, made novel with the sharp green energy of mastic. In a warm, smooth drydown, tonka and patchouli wrap up a composition both thrillingly original and delightfully naturalistic. Green is a new direction for Tom Ford, and Vert des Bois isn't quite like any Private Blend creation we've encountered before. But we're more than happy to report that in its creativity, elegance and standout style, Vert des Bois is, in every way, another perfect Tom Ford release.

I really like most of the Tom Ford scents I've ever encountered. Black orchid is my signature fall/winter fragrance and I have recently discovered a love of Santal blush. So I thought I would try vert de bois since I like unusual scents. However, this is one is not for me. I love masculine scents and have been known to wear men's cologne in the past. This is definitely masculine, to the point where I would not feel comfortable wearing it. It definitely has a "green" smell to it, a note I normally love. But this fragrance reminds me of one from Avon from the 70s....I can't remember the name of it, but it was a men's cologne, it came in one of the glass bottles, and this scent hits all those memories for me. It somehow manages to smell piney and powdery at the same time. Not sure how that's even possible. I might try to push this off on my husband, but I'm not even sure I want to smell it on him :(
