Private Blend Takes Luxury to New Heights
When I think luxury fragrances Tom Ford’s Private Blend Collection would be at the top of my list. Described as Ford’s own personal scent laboratory, the collection features special and original fragrances unconstrained by the conventions of mainstream scent making. Private Blend delivers highly original accords of the most fascinating notes in a perfumer’s lexicon.
The latest addition to the collection is Beau de Jour, a fragrance Ford describes as ‘the scent for the perfectly groomed gentleman who considers every detail’. Labelled as a classic, sharp and maverick, Bour de Jour combines classic aromatic fougere accords to create a scent that is distinguished and mesmerising.
Beau de Jour opens with the freshness of lavender from Provence, which is amplified with an infusion of energetic hybrids of lavender. The scents herbaceous heart consists of African Rosemary, geranium, Oak Moss and green basil. To finish, notes of patchouli and amber create an earthy foundation, accompanied by radiant wood and vetiver creates a masculine finish.
What I enjoy about this fragrance is it’s balance of warmth and green accords which make this scent suitable for wear day and night. The blend of base notes create a warm and long lasting signature on the skin giving the fragrance it’s longevity while making it well-suited to the cooler months of the year. Much like my favourite Private Blend scents, Beau de Jour oozes originality and doesn’t fail in captivating or seeking wanted attention.
