This new scent will last for several hours, guaranteed to make a memorable impression.
World-renowned fashion designer and film director, Tom Ford has debuted a new fragrance for men, Noir Extreme Parfum. This fragrance has a luxurious cocktail of aromas: warm spices, sensuous amber and exotic woods. As Mr Ford describes it: “Noir Extreme Parfum expresses the dramatic duality of a refined man.”
The fragrance story
In 2015, Tom Ford introduced the world to Noir Extreme Eau De Parfum. This original fragrance has a blend of sensual spices and glowing citrus that gives way to the scent of Indian kulfi and rare roses. Having met huge success, Mr Ford announced a remake of Noir Extreme, but this time in a parfum formula. Noir Extreme Parfum brings a heightened concentration of spicy cardamom, spiked with the warmth of Shimoga ginger, and the rich sensuality of tonka bean and guaiac wood. The composition also contains a dose of India cardamom to enhance the spicy character. Tom Ford did a complete overhaul, not only with the concentration levels, but also with the bottle. The original eau de parfum version comes in a metallic black bottle and a matching cap. For the parfum edition, the bottle flaunts its charm in a metallic gold-toned flacon with a luxe black logo and matching cap.
You cannot go wrong with Tom Ford fragrances. Why? Because of his high-quality ingredients and statement bottle designs. He pays attention to detail, even with his clothing collection. He dressed Daniel Craig in the last couple of James Bond movies – and it really doesn’t get more iconic than that.
Remember, it’s essential to have a versatile fragrance collection suitable for every occasion. Think about it, you wouldn’t wear the same shirt every other day, why should you stick to the same fragrance? Below, we break down the difference between a parfum and eau de parfum – so you know exactly what you’re buying.
What is a parfum?
According to research, parfum sits at the top of the perfume concentration list. It contains between 15% to 40% concentrated oils. A few sprays on the pulse points are guaranteed to last up to eight hours, depending on the concentration levels, of course. With this impressive longevity comes a hefty price tag, but it’s worth the splurge.
What is an eau de parfum (EDP)?
The differences are simply the amount of concentration oils. An eau de parfum (EDP) is the second most potent fragrance. They feature around 15% to 20% concentrated oils. On a good day, an EDP should last up to six hours if you follow our fragrance guide to make your scent last. We recommend wearing an EDP anywhere you want to make a lasting impression!
