Tom Ford has introduced Arabian Wood, the latest fragrance to join the Private Blend Collection (it has reportedly been exclusive to a Tom Ford boutique in Kuwait for some time):
Custom-blended for a well-known Arabian sheik, this woody chypre was inspired by the extraordinary confluence of the Middle East's past and present aromatic wonders.
Capturing the mystique of Arabia, a rare combination of precious woods, opulent green notes, rich florals, and exotic spices provides a footprint or modernity outlined in ethnic tradition.
The notes feature lavender, Bulgarian rose, freesia, orange blossom, galbanum, bergamot, rose de mai, ylang ylang, rose absolute, jasmine, gardenia, honey, orris, patchouli, cedar, oak moss, sandalwood, tonka bean and amber.
Tom Ford Private Blend Arabian Wood is available now at Neiman Marcus in 50 ($180) and 250 (currently shown as $270 but the usual price is $450 so I assume it is a mistake) ml Eau de Parfum. (via neimanmarcus)
Update: yep, the 250 ml is $450. And, see a review of Tom Ford Arabian Wood.
