A look at a nail colour (same source):

Quote:
Tom Ford Burnt Topaz Nail Lacquer ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a warm bronze with orange undertones and threads of metallic copper shimmer. It’s mostly opaque after two coats. China Glaze Mahogany Magic has a similar undertone but looks rather different otherwise. NARS King Kong is much redder. China Glaze Goin’ My Way is a bit darker.

There was a tendency for it to pull a bit, which I suspect is due partially to the longer drying time. Not much longer than average to me, but the formula is less forgiving if you’re trying to get your swatches done! Because it has a metallic finish, brush strokes are definitely present and noticeable, though they’re subtler than you’ll typically find in this type of finish. The formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it applied decently, but it could have gone on a bit smoother. It also did this weird thing where it seemed to recede from the edge of the tips of my nails.

I wore this shade to test wear (I’ve tested the wear of the cream finishes, but not of the metallic ones), and it lasted seven days without any chipping and had minor tip wear–just keep in mind that I can’t remember the last formula that did chip on me other than matte polish.

FINAL THOUGHTS
It's a so-so formula, but the color is pretty and if you're a fan of metallic finishes and prefer less brush strokes, you may find it worth dealing with. At this price point, I'd expect a better formula and more color coverage at two coats.

This summer Ford sticks to what he knows best with a line of illuminating bronze products. “I wanted to capture a very particular look of skin that is bathed in sunset light in the summer,” said Ford. “It is a sultry and sublime glow. In this light, every woman looks irresistibly relaxed and sensual.”

The Summer 2013 collection boasts a liquid skin illuminator ($65), bronzy cheek color sticks ($58), creamy eye colors ($40), a lustrous rose gold lip lacquer ($30), and an icy nail varnish ($30) and will be available in May at Tom Ford counters at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and Neiman Marcus.

And a set of scents (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Private Blend Atelier d’Orient Collection

Tom Ford presents Atelier d’Orient, a collection of four private blend fragrances inspired by the sublime beauty, enigmatic sensuality and exquisite luxury of Asia. Each scent tells his richly imagined olfactory story about Asia by using ingredients that have treasured prestige in the orient, from voluptuous florals and precious fruits to aromatic spices and rare oils. In Atelier d’Orient, prized ingredients from the ancient silk and spice routes are crafted into unexpected new architectures as beautiful and daring as the region’s mesmerizing, modern cities.

$210.00 for 50ml/1.7 fl. oz. EDP; $520.00 for 250ml/8.4 oz. EDP

Plum Japonais

Plum Japonais reveals the extraordinary beauty of the ume plum by juxtaposing it with a lush and unconventional mélange of exotic Asian ingredients. Plum Japonais is a rich and luxurious fragrance for true scent connoisseurs.

Saffron, cinnamon bark Laos, everlasting flower and sawara cypress create an unforgettable journey across distant lands. The voyage unfolds from India to Laos and then to China and Japan, where the tart, dark nuances of ume plum are discovered. This breathtaking ingredient becomes infused with velvety plum liqueur, beguiling camellia Japonica flowers and rare agarbois, casting an irresistible spell of ravishing beauty—before the journey ventures into a warm and sensual terrain of amber, benzoin Laos, fir balsam absolute, vanilla absolute and infusion.

Fleur de Chine

Fleur de Chine is an unequivocally romantic and haunting, floral fragrance that is touched with reverence for the great fragrances of the past. It evokes an atmosphere of sophisticated restraint that evolves slowly into rich grandeur.

Precious Asian flowers, including the Hualan flower and star magnolia, are arranged in a bouquet of rare beauty. Their romance is enhanced with the elegant texture of fresh clementine and bergamot, blended with the soft, green effects of hyacinth. Sublime eastern treasures—jasmine tea, syringa, plum and tea rose balanced with wisteria, white peach and soft tree peony—whisper a story of insatiable longing. This medley of sophistication and sublimity keeps the fragrance blooming with presence. Yet the richness of Hinoki wood, Chinese cedarwood, amber, rare benzoin Laos, styrax and vetiver tempers the beauty with captivating seduction, adding an aura of glamorous mystique.

Shanghai Lily

Shanghai Lily is a floral oriental scent that transports the senses into a world of rare and opulent ingredients from the historic silk road and spice route.

Bitter orange, pink peppercorn and rich black pepper blend with the warm richness of clove. Jasmine, rose and tuberose, combined with the very contemporary addition of vetiver and luxurious cashmeran, create a sensual coupling of spices and florals. The golden treasures of benzoin Laos, castoreum, cistus labdanum and guaiacwood are touched with addicting vanilla and captivating frankincense, creating a hazy reverie of glamour and temptation.

Rive d’Ambre

Rive d’Ambre is a golden-toned eau de cologne with a veil of colonial elegance. Precious citrus fruits—a talisman of good fortune in Asia—are beautifully illuminated by a warm and seductive, amber background.

Exquisite citrus fruits—bergamot, lemon and bitter orange oils—dance together with refreshing and refined light, surrounded by the uplifting textures of tarragon, cardamom and Moroccan spearmint oil. The bergamot weaves itself into these contrasting ingredients with aromatic splendor; in an unexpected twist, this citrus gift is cradled by the rich and seductive warmth o rare benzoin Laos melded with a beautiful, pear wood accord. A decadent pour of cognac oil touched with tolu balsam enhances the golden aura, which is made even more fascinating with the addition of addictive amber.

Shoot, if I ever buy any Tom Ford cosmetics, you better believe I'll be wearing it every. single. day. I'm gonna get my money's worth!

A new fragrance collection (chicprofile.com):

Quote:
I have wanted to revisit Oud for years; it is one of the most endlessly fascinating ingredients in a perfumer’s palette. For this collection, I explored how Oud could intertwine with other precious ingredients from the rich and storied culture and artisanal traditions of the Middle East. - Tom Ford

The Private Blend Oud collection is an olfactive journey that explores three mesmerizing and sensual facets of oud. Two new oud fragrances join the best-selling fragrance, private blend oud wood, a groundbreaking composition of exotic woods and spices that is hailed as a definitive interpretation of oud.

The new fragrances, Private Blend Oud Fleur and Private Blend Tobacco Oud, share the signature elements of the original Oud Wood—oud, sandalwood and patchouli—then follow two unique and contrasting directions. They give Tom Ford another opportunity to show his mastery of this rare and precious ingredient. The collection of three oud fragrances also features three bath and body products that offer sumptuous new ways to wear this unforgettable note, creating a complete world of oud within Tom Ford Private Blend. Oud Wood body moisturizer, Oud Wood shower gel and OudWood bath soap are perfumed with the original Oud Wood fragrance.

Tom Ford Private Blend Oud Collection

Tom Ford Oud Wood Eau de Parfum Decanter – New – $520.00 for 250 ml/ 8.4 fl oz

Private Blend Oud Wood captures the most sophisticated, precious and highly regarded materials in the Middle East. Rich, elegant oud is paired with smoky birch tar and cistus heart, which impart a sultry, smoky effect reminiscent of burnt incense lingering in the air, further enhancing the fragrance’s depth and sensuality. Adding a perception of warmth and intrigue, notes of patchouli absolute are used as cedarwood atlas creates a sense of animalic depth, leaving an intoxicating trail.

Tom Ford Oud Wood Eau de Parfum

Tom Ford Tobacco Oud Eau de Parfum – $210.00 for 50 ml/ 1.7 fl oz

Private Blend Tobacco Oud explores a secret history of addictive Arabic passions—crafting fragrances from precious oud wood resin and smoking aromatic tobacco. It intertwines mesmerizing oud with an idealized tobacco accord inspired by “dokha,” a blend of herbs, flowers and spice-laden tobacco that was smoked in secret five centuries ago during a ban on smoking— and retains its allure as a widely used tobacco today. Dried quickly in the desert sun, and then mixed with herbs, spices, bark, and dried flowers, Dokha delivers its rush in a potent, dizzying hit. Like a proper Dokha, private blend tobacco oud imparts an extremely smooth, warm blend of woodsy notes for a heady buzz; and then a warm exhale of spicy heat. Fine tobacco dust absolute is intertwined with coriander seed oil to achieve this spice-laden touch.

Roasted tonka organic absolute soaks the tobacco with a warm, addictive pulse of coumarin while streaks of sandalwood bring out mellow, lactonic tones. A seductive amber note is accomplished with high dosages of cistus oil from spain and cistus absolute—an indigenous Mediterranean plant also known as labdanum or rockrose—that contributes leathery-ambery, textural tones.

Tom Ford Oud Fleur Eau de Parfum – $210.00 for 50 ml/ 1.7 fl oz

Private Blend Oud Fleur explores the mystique of oud in all its dimensions, including the aspect of prestige and age. It is crafted from a slowly perfected vision of Oud Wood that has been developed over twenty years by harmonizing the finest aspects of many variations.

The Oud Wood core is streaked with additional woody notes to amplify its effects: patchouli for cool earthy tones; sandalwood for warmth; incense for smoky mystery, and styrax, cistus and leather accord for added texture and presence. Ambergris and castoreum lend a wild warmth and mellow ambery comfort.

A complex rose dimension evokes the middle east’s legendary damascus rose. A blend of Rose Bulgaria Orpur®, Rose Absolute Morocco, and Rose Absolute Turkey Orpur® creates a brocade effect that weaves fresh petal, lush nectar and spicy stem-like signatures together. This floral heart is enhanced with Ginger CO2, Cardamom Seed Oil Orpur®, Cinnamon Bark Laos Orpur®, and Pimento Berry; these cool and fiery spice accents awaken the senses. A touch of Geranium Egypt Orpur® lends a peppery-green flourish as tagette, osmanthus, davana oil and date accord lend a beautifully mellowed effect which enhances the sensation of a precious fragrance crafted from superbly well-aged materials.

Tom Ford Beauty has extended its upscale Private Blend Collection with two new fragrances that continue the Mediterranean theme of the brand’s Neroli Portofino line. Mandarino Di Amalfi and Costa Azzurra will be available in selected Tom Ford Beauty travel retail locations from August.

Mandarino Di Amalfi aims to capture the calm idyll of the whitewashed villas dotting the cliff sides of Amalfi, according to the brand. The fragrance opens with an abundance of coastal Italian ingredients. Top notes include tarragon, spearmint, blackcurrant, bergamot, grapefruit, lemon sfumatrice (an artisanal pressed lemon oil) and basil.

Cool black pepper and coriander seed complement a floral core comprising orange flower, clary sage, jasmine and Shiso leaf. The base blends vetiver, amber, labdanum, musk and civet.

Costa Azzurra evokes the sun-baked landscape of coastal and island Mediterranean woods, where pines and oaks mingle with wild-growing herbs and salty water.

The fragrance opens with a hint of fucus – a species of seaweed – which is combined with driftwood and agarwood accords, enriched with ambrette seed, celery seed and caradamom.

The heart features armoise, juniper berry, myrtle, basil, French lavender, lemon and yellow mandarin. The dry-down incorporates citrus and resin from the lentisque shrub, olibanum, incense, vetiver and vanilla.

The Neroli Portofino trio is presented in glass flacons coloured in complementary shades of sea and sky blue. All three bottles are labelled with a gold plaque and are packed in matching Private Blend outer cartons.
