Tom Ford Private Blend Jardin Noir Perfume

Tom Ford Private Blend Jardin Noir - eau de parfum for women

Jardin Noir by Tom Ford Private Blend - "Jardin Noir explores the forbidden sides of four of perfumery's most treasured blooms: narcissus, hyancinth, rose, and lily. Convention is abandoned and unexpected ingredients converge with bewitching and intoxicating results. Iconic flowers fall open, dropping their innocent facades to reveal the subversive beauty and fierce elegance they normally keep hidden."  --neimanmarcus

Tom Ford Private Blend Jardin Noir

Ombre de Hyacinth
Sophisticated. Voluptuous. Passionate. Ombre de Hyacinth creates bewitching tension as hyacinth cloaks its voluptuous beauty behind cool, aristocratic finery.
*Scent Notes: Galbanum, green violet leaf, magnolia, pink peppercorn, jasmine absolute, benzoin.

Café Rose
Enticing. Exotic. Seductive. Cafe Rose descends into a hidden labyrinth, where rose's fine breeding gives way to darker pleasures.
*Scent Notes: Rose de Mai, Turkish rose, Bulgarian rose, dark coffee, saffron, black pepper, incense resin, amber, sandalwood, patchouli.

Lys Fume
Lush. Intoxicating. Luxurious. Lys Fume captures the decadence of tropical intoxication, as liquor-soaked dreams float in a garden of pure, white lilies.
*Scent Notes: mardarin, pink peppercorn, nutmeg, turmeric; white lilies, ylang ylang, South Indian davana essence, West Indian Demerera rum essence; vanilla, labdanum, styrax, oakwood.

Jonquille de Nuit
Heady. Hypnotic. Sensual. Jonquille de Nuit taunts the delicate Narcissus flower to shed its sweetness and spiral into the self-obsessive haze that its name connotes.
*Scent Notes: wild Alpine cyclamen, acacia, angelica seeds; narcissus flower, Egyptian violet leaf, bitter orange leaf absolute; orris, amber.

Find Your Perfect Scent
Perfume experts, designers, and fashion-savvy women reveal the secrets to discovering the fragrances that suit your style.

Bold Trendsetter
Take a peek in that closet again, and ask yourself some questions. "A woman's fashion style sets the stage for how she will select her scents," says Vasnier. Perhaps, like many women, you have a few styles you rotate -- sexy one day, buttoned-up the next. If you've invested in bold Prada and Balenciaga, we recommend a rich, notice-me floral highlighted with an unconventional ingredient like turmeric, amber, or leather. Good picks are Tom Ford Lys Fume, Lady Gaga Fame, and Balenciaga Florabotanica. But be warned, these scents are not for wallflowers. Vbeauté founder Julie Macklowe, a notoriously edgy dresser with a weakness for Rodarte, found her perfect fit: Hermès 24 Faubourg, a luxurious and complex floral. (Note: When wearing "big" fragrances, apply gingerly so you're not overpowered. As you would with clothing, you want to wear the scent, not the other way around.) For a less intense application, Gottlieb suggests spritzing the "juice" in the air and walking through it.

Time to switch from my go-to summer fragrance, Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, to Ford's new Jonquille de Nuit, a dark, sexy floral.

Tom Ford Cafe Rose Perfume

Tom Ford's Cafe Rose
Film noir inspired not only Ford's fashion but his scents as well. The intoxicating Café Rose, with its dark notes of rich coffee and exotic saffron, is one of four private blends in his Jardin Noir collection. $495/250 ml; at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Love It, Need It
Just when I swore off any more floral perfumes (my weakness!), along comes Tom Ford's Private Blend Jardin Noir collection, $205 each. Jonquille de Nuit combines addictive heady narcissus flower with fresh violet leaf. Cafe Rose has me dreaming of sipping smoky espresso in a lush Moroccan garden. Consider them glamorous and slightly dirty (in a good way) florals. Don't even thing about coupling one with a diaphanous flowy number -- sequins and furs are imperative.

Perfumes in editorials
-- Leilani Bishop Orange Blossom, $62
-- Kiehl's Aromatic Blends, $24-$75 each

Tom Ford Jardin Noir Perfume

Seductively Juicy Spritzes
Of all the fall fragrances we studied and sprayed, these are most likely to send a guy into a slightly-obsessed-with-you state of mind.

If you want to smell like a Total Temptress
Packed with intoxicating spices and musks (typically more common in colognes than perfumes), these fragrance smell unexpected and exotic on your skin.
-- Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain, $100
-- Yves Saint Laurent Nu, $105
-- Lady Gaga Fame, $55
-- Tom Ford Cafe Rose, $205

Beyond smelling amazing, these new perfumes have incredible perks -- starting with the power to make a man want to linger within inches of your body for hours on end.

Strike a Chord
Flowers and fruits are lovely, but some of the newest fragrances for fall contain notes that were never considered beautiful.

Tom Ford Cafe Rose Perfume
Coffee in a fragrance: not so remarkable. Coffee in this fragrance? Mind-blowing. Tom Ford blended the coffee with a traditional rose. The result is galvanizing: The coffee provides a welcome jolt to the rose and adds a surprising bit of warmth, too.

Perfumes featured in this article:
- Lady Gaga Fame
- Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y.
- Tom Ford Cafe Rose
- Diptyque Volutes
- Halle Berry Closer
