Tom Ford will launch Soleil Neige, a new unisex fresh citrus fragrance in the Tom Ford Private Blend collection.
The bright opening of Bergamot and Carrot Seed mirrors the winter light, the cool reflection of the sun transforming everything in sight to a blanket of glacial white.
The floral heart looks to the iridescent sky, blooming with pale petal shades of ivory and rose. The fresh green petals of Jasmine Grandiflorum, addictive Orange flower and the transparent white floralcy of Karmaflor Captive blends white blooms with the rich warmth of Turkish Rose.
The drydown melts onto skin with the wood and honey undertones of Cistus Labdanum and skin-gripping musk as the resinous dimension of Benzoin and creamy Vanilla finish with sun-kissed warmth.
"Soleil Neige is the bright side of Soleil, a polar expression to Soleil Blanc's solar floral. Radiant with winter light, the scent mimics the shimmer of sun on snow." - TOM FORD
Tom Ford Soleil Neige is available now for pre-order at Neiman Marcus, in 50 and 250 ml Eau de Parfum ($240 / 610) or Shimmering Body Oil, in 100 ml ($100).
Okay, first of all, what the heck is Karmaflor? Some random flower with good karma? And secondly, “skin-gripping” is pretty creepy, even for musk.
Lol my thoughts exactly! And the price point is crazy.
Karmaflor is a Givaudan molecule, derived from a headspace of Ashoka flowers. It’s a salicylate, said to smell like a tropical floral.
I must lie down and nap, reading this has utterly exhausted me.
After reading a few words, I find these descriptions start to morph into the voice of Charlie Brown’s teacher… Wah, wah, wah wah Wah wah, Wah wah…
