Tom Ford Grey Vetiver – The Perfume of a Fascinating Man

Fragrance Review

The latest creation by dedicated exclusively to men represents a composition of bespoke elegance and a symbol of the social status as well. The always surprising character of the designer has imagined another iconic creation, destined to replicate the huge success of his first masculine fragrance, For Men. Introduced in September 2009, Grey Vetiver is a scent, with a beguiling character over which you will fall into utterly admiration.

The clever marketing strategy of selective distribution is making Tom Ford fragrances more desirable. Lucky for me (thanks to the duty free shops!), I managed to sniff Grey Vetiver last summer, during our summer vacation. Two month after this episode, I was enchanted to find out that the fragrance was already available at our Esteé Lauder local representative (alongside the entire range of Tom Ford Beauty!), which is absolutely wonderful.

Anyway, the day I saw Grey Vetiver on the duty free perfumery shelves, I renounced to test it on paper (due to my intense excitement) and passed directly to spraying it on my skin. The fragrance exhibited a subtle start, completed by the sophisticated signature of the natural vetiver in the later projection, which is amazing. The opening contains a heady blend of orange flower and grapefruit, enveloped in warm wood and sage. For the mid development, a rare ingredient was employed, orris, which was highlighted by the spicy combination of nutmeg and pimento berry. In the dry down, the vetiver was provided in a mixture of wood and oakmoss, “for an erotic effect on the skin” (according to the description in the official website). As the same source mentions “The exclusive, proprietary vetiver extract, obtained by a revolutionary method, is described by connoisseurs as the most distinctly elegant available”. The result is brilliantly re-interpretation of the vetiver based fragrance, which could only come from Tom Ford.

The bottle of Grey Vetiver is made from frosted ribbed glass, in the same shape that made history with Tom Ford For Men. Insofar I will find enough financial resources I will buy this fragrance in the future, because, if you needed one more reason, Grey Vetiver might be assimilated as well with a major investment in your olfactory style.
