Tom Ford Sahara Noir: worth crossing a desert for

TOM FORD SAHARA NOIRLike Kate Bush albums and really good soufflés Tom Ford fragrances are almost always worth the wait.  His latest fragrance, Sahara Noir, is absolutely no exception and I fell in love with it the moment I got a preview of it earlier today. It may have a raft of supporting notes like bitter orange, Egyptian jasmine, labdnam, beeswax, agarwood and cedar but this fragrance is all about one of my favourite ingredients – frankincense. So much so, in fact, that I should really write FRANKINCENSE when I tell you this. And add a couple of exclamations marks just to make the point.  But anyway, you get the picture.

tom-ford-sahara-noirThough aimed at women (see the advertising to the right) it’s also a fragrance perfect for men who like big, ballsy statement scents with warmth, depth and tenacious longevity. Not everyone will love it – it’s not a “focus group fragrance” after all – but if you’re into luxury, opulence and, well, the rich, evocative smell of frankincense, I strongly suggest you give it a try.

Tom Ford Sahara Noir is available nationwide from May priced £100 for 50ml EDP.

    If any perfume were as delightful as the last two Kate Bush (CBE) albums, this Dandy would be delirious…
    Must try as I am a big fan of the Frankincense note.
    Yours ever
