Tom Ford Azure Lime
Tom Ford Azure Lime captures the easy style and relaxed glamour of Mustique, a private island nestled in the Eastern Caribbean. "There is a captivating sense of warmth and luminosity there, balanced with an old-world charm that is unique to Mustique," says Tom Ford.
Opening with a radiant flourish of lime, evocative of the region's lush citrus groves, Tom Ford Azure Lime skillfully evolves into a casually elegant scent.
The first effervescent inhalation is a lime water infusion paired with juniper berry. Citrus notes of Valencia orange, lemon and bergamot then combine with the wild aromas of Oregon mint and crisp black basil for a brilliant start.
Subtly evolving, the heart reveals an intercontinental richness with the introduction of Egyptian jasmine, Tunisian neroli, violet leaves, and orange flower. South African buchu, a treasured local herb, brings a rush of mint and citrus, softened by delicate Moroccan orris butter.
As the fragrance dries down on the skin, the warm sensuality of sandalwood, patchouli, tonka bean and a musk accord provide the right amount of intensity, while sea moss and oakwood extract lend a charming twist.
The new scent will be offered in the original Tom Ford Private Blend Collection packaging inspired by the dark brown glass coloring of the apothecary bottles used in perfume laboratories. The 50 ml flacon is created to be weighty in the hand and has the sleek architectural look of a chess piece and the 250ml decanter is carved with the highest level of craftsmanship.
