The fragrance reveals itself with Mediterranean hesperidic notes coupled with lemon leaf oil, Italian bergamot, mandarin zest, fresh basil, violet and ginger.
The scent unfolds with unexpected floral ingredients. Tunisian orange flower absolute reveals potent sensuality. An infusion of black pepper and tobacco leaf absolute invokes distinctive intensity. Moroccan grapefruit flower, unique to Tom Ford For Men, yields its blossoms for a brief three weeks. It is harvested by hand and distilled immediately to preserve its precious essence.
The final impression is rich and exotic. Deep amber accord, cedarwood heart, patchouli, vetiver mist and oakmoss ripen to an incandescent smokiness. Leatherwood, a resin from Laos that produces a rich leathery essence, adds to the warm appeal. Cypriol, never before used in a fragrance, is a root from India that emits an animatic sensuality.
