Holiday Gift Idea: Tom Ford Private Blend Rollerball Collection

I'm a Tom Ford fanatic. I'm sure my regular readers are well aware of this, but I feel compelled to point it out every so often. The man is just sex in human form. Black Orchid is my holy grail fragrance. I think his design is on point. Which is why I think this gift set would be perfect for any Tom Ford lover on your list.

Has the following scents:

  • Amber Absolute: A hallmark private blend fragrance. Amber Absolute is a honey-colored scent infused with the purest form of amber, joined by a tenacious refrain of African incense, labdanum, rich woods and a touch of vanilla bean.
  • Black Violet: Crisp citrus surrounds a modern pulpy fruit accord, fused with black violets. Woody accents fold into oakmoss adding the universally comforting sensation of warmth.
  • Bois Rouge: This woody oriental opens with a blend of elegant citrus and spice. The luxurious heart reveals cedarwood, patchouli, jasmine and muguet. Sandalwood, vetiver, amber and refined leather are warmed by vanilla and tonka, adding lasting depth and texture.
  • Japon Noir: A contemporary fragrance enriched with flavors from the past opens with an inviting spice bouquet and warms to reveal patchouli and porto noir accords. Night-blooming jasmine, leather, amber and vetiver add a deeper, sleeker touch.
  • Moss Breches: Dark and complex, this mystical chypre combines fresh wood and warm spice notes with the delicate essence of beeswax absolute. The scent intensifies with the addition of ingredients such as Moroccan clary sage, Hungarian tarragon, Corsican rosemary and labdanum, patchouli and benzoin.
  • Neroli Portofino: A modern intercontinental version of an iconic fragrance theme balances luminous citrus oils and floral notes with amber undertones that awaken the senses and leave a splashy yet substantive impression.
  • Noir de Noir: A dark chypre oriental, this scent opens with an earthy mantle of richly woven saffron, black rose and black truffle, with hints of floralcy. Underneath, vanilla, patchouli, oud wood and tree moss soften the intensity, making the scent a sensual experience.
  • Oud Wood: Exotic rose wood and cardamom, blended with exuberant Chinese pepper, envelop the wearer in warmth. Eventually, the center exposes a smoky blend of rare oud wood, sandalwood and vetiver. Finally, the creamy scents of tonka bean, vanilla and amber are revealed.
  • Purple Patchouli: This '60s-inspired floral woody fragrance opens with an elegant orchid accord and wet, succulent citrus notes. The heart blends noir leather and a signature patchouli accord with exotic spices, supported by the intense depth of amber, patchouli, Peru balsam and vetiver.
  • Tobacco Vanille: A modern take on an old world men's club. A smooth oriental, Tobacco Vanille opens immediately with opulent essences of tobacco leaf and aromatic spice notes. The heart unfolds with creamy tonka bean, tobacco flower, vanilla and cocoa, and finishes with a dry fruit accord, enriched with sweet wood sap.
  • Tuscan Leather: A chypre blend of notes brings a raw yet reserved sensuality to this original take on a classic leather scent. Saffron, raspberry and thyme open to olibanum and night-blooming jasmine. Leather, black suede and amberwood add an intricate richness.
  • Velvet Gardenia: A heady floral blend of ripened black gardenia and succulent orange deepens into a heart of jasmine, rose and muguet. Tuberose blends with dark plum, honey and beeswax, finishing with a smooth accord of incense and labdanum.
And I'm not kidding when I say that Velvet Gardenia rocks my world more than anything else I've ever smelled. Every time I've tried to pick it up, it's been out. But now all of his Private Blend scents are available in one kit, at a reasonable $225. I need a wish list!
