In September 2006, Tommy Hilfiger was launching 2 fragrances, in order to celebrate their 10 years in the perfumery business. The names of this fragrant pair were Tommy 10 and Tommy Girl 10 and both represented restructured editions of the original Tommy (Tommy Boy, actually!) and Tommy Girl.
Tommy 10 is an excellent woody floral musk fragrance, developed by perfumer Annie Buzantian. Given that Tommy Boy was one of my beloved fragrances, once part of my perfume wardrobe, I sampled this new edition as soon as I got my hands on it. After testing it carefully, my conclusion is that the differences between these two are only minor, and if I was to acquire it again, I would choose any of these, because both are pleasant perfumes. But this is no longer the case, because I belong currently to a slight different age group.
With an opening that contains accords of Hawaiian pineapple, Seattle rain, Fresh Kentucky bluegrass and tart Cape Cod cranberry, Tommy 10 exhibits its refreshing facet right from the outset. Then, as the scent enters mid development phase, the floral facet kicks in, embodied by notes of Rocky Mountain blue spruce, violet, Arizona saguaro cactus flower. The final phase comes courtesy of a blend of Vermont red maple wood, Wyoming cottonwood and Long Island driftwood.
Tommy 10 arrives in a flacon that remains faithful to the general design lines of its predecessor. This time the bottle has turned into more flattened and is decorated with the number “10” printed in white and everything exudes the image of the American style.
