Summary: I love love this scent on me! When I first put it on, I smell rose, it reminds me of Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Oud Silk Mood. And then as the day wears on, I get hints of vanilla, subtle patchouli, it is warm, spicy, earthy, I love that it lasts and lasts but doesn't scream perfume! It is my first Tom Ford perfume and it is now one of my most favorite scents.
Summary: We often speak of the aesthetics of perfume and music as being analogous and I believe there is yet one more item we can add to that list of analogies: the similarities of naming a piece music or a perfume. One could go into some depth on this topic but I’ll stick to the genre of giving titles to music known as “character pieces”. Don’t worry, this isn’t a music lesson! I’ll get around to how this applies to Tom Ford Noir very soon.
Summary: Its a beautiful unisex fragrance cannot overspray which makes it worth the money two sprays and that's it starts if rosey ends up like a rose sprinkled with vanilla light chocolate. Would wear night out.
Summary: I promised I wouldn't copy paste my reviews from other sites and I encourage former members of other sites to do the same, this way we can keep Parfumo as a unique and very helpful site to everyone looking for a different take on a fragrance. Luckily, Noir made this very easy for me since I learned to appreciate this fragrance by enjoying the juice rather than focusing on the name.
Summary: Noir goes on with a sweet slightly herb-laced citrus and violet floral open before transitioning to its heart accord. During the heart phase of the scent the early citrus from the top notes all but disappears while the violet remains in the starring role, now turning very powdery as iris joins it as co-star while adding a soft synthetic smelling rose note to support the powdery starring floral duo.
"Poudre D'Orient is an exotic aroma of violet leaf, patchouli, vanilla and suede musk."

Summary: People have been comparing Tom Ford NOIR to everything under the sun. What it is not at all is black. Upon initial application, I was reminded immediately of Le Labo POUDRE D'ORIENT, which is summed up as follows: "Poudre D'Orient is an exotic aroma of violet leaf, patchouli, vanilla and suede musk." Shortly after, however, NOIR began to seem like a jumbled mess to my nose. I do not smell any civet--not a single nanodrop--and I am wondering who does?
Summary: Noir de Noir has a reputation for being mysterious, complex, and dark. Some say it's too feminine smelling for a man to wear. I do not agree, but it does take a particular man to wear it well. This is a scent that requires confidence to carry. The top note is a strong, dark rose, not a fake floral but a deep, potent scent.
Summary: I was given a sample of this at Saks after testing every one of Tom Ford's fragrances. I bought the Italian Cypress for my husband (wonderful) and the Noir de Noir was my favorite for myself. However, I needed to be able see how it would wear over time on my skin as I have tried other scents with rose and they can turn nasty on me. And I am referring to very high-end brands. Not this time. Other reviewers have described the scent beautifully.
