Tom Ford will launch the Private Blend Les Extraits Verts collection, with four fragrances: Vert d'Encens, Vert de Bois, Vert Bohème and Vert de Fleur. The new scents are described as "daring and intoxicating interpretations of perfumery's classic 'green' note".
Vert d'Encens (shown) ~ "Sophisticated, aromatic and wild, Vert d'Encens is a whole new concept for an incense fragrance, inspired by the rugged Mediterranean coastlines of Corsica. Incense, so long the domain of austere, church-y scents or lavish Middle Eastern fantasias, is combined here with intense green notes and resinous tree sap for a bright, bracing and expressively textured burst of naturalistic character." With pine resin, tree sap accord, fir balsam, incense, heliotrope and boxtree oil.
Vert de Bois ~ "Unique and provocative, Vert des Bois represents a new evolution for green scents- a refreshingly avant-garde combination of woods, aromatics and florals as distinct as it is versatile." With spiked ouzo accord, poplar buds, olive tree leaves, lentisque resinoid, roasted tonka and patchouli.
Vert Bohème ~ "Fresh, green and entirely free spirited, Vert Bohème sparkles like an emerald on the finger of a dynamic young artist idling away a sunlit afternoon." With galbanum, mandarin, magnolia, honeysuckle, violet leaf and gustavia superba.
Vert de Fleur ~ "Private Blend Vert de Fleur strikes an alluring note on the definitive theme of 70s glamour. Refined with a modern flourish of iris and hyacinth, Vert de Fleur is Tom Ford’s floral subversion of classic green and captures an exuberant scene where beautiful icons with inimitable personas uncover a new world of pleasure." Additional notes include galbanum, neroli, bergamot, basil, jasmine, rose, orange blossom, vetiver, patchouli and oakmoss.
Tom Ford Vert d'Encens, Vert de Bois and Vert Bohème are available for pre-order at Luckyscent in the US (delivery projected for September), in 50 ($225) or 250 ($595) ml Eau de Parfum. Vert de Fleur will reportedly be exclusive to Harrods for a few months when it launches in late August.
