Tom Ford introduces a new fragrance that reinvents his signature vetiver scent, TOM FORD GREY VETIVER, adding a heightened dimension of freshness.
TOM FORD GREY VETIVER EAU DE TOILETTE continues to capture the essence of his menswear philosophy while imparting a new invigorating twist.
Vetiver is an ingredient that Ford says has always been a hallmark of a classic, tailored, and unabashedly masculine man. “Vetiver immediately evokes for me the classic man, someone who has a confident, refined, and slightly traditional sense of what it means to be a man—an elegance that is mirrored in TOM FORD clothing. It’s one of my favorite fragrance notes because it is timeless, grounded, and has an enormous amount of character.” He adds, “Almost everyone recognizes vetiver and has an association with the aroma; it is the fragrance equivalent of the classic blue blazer, the beautiful watch, or the cap-toed shoe.”
TOM FORD GREY VETIVER EAU DE TOILETTE has been crafted around the most authentic vetiver note available. A celebration of this iconic material, this intriguing mix of cool, dry, and rich-woody qualities are enlivened and illuminated to the fullest. To construct Grey Vetiver’s stunning character, the material is obtained by a revolutionary high-tech method resulting in a rich, ultra-sophisticated scent.
The fresh aspect of vetiver is elevated with an energetic blend of citrus fruits. Crisp winter lemon, bergamot and grapefruit notes are combined with aromatic Thai basil to reveal the fragrance relaxed, yet highly evolved style.
Orris, another precious root extraction highly valued by fragrance makers, creates a warmth and luxurious comfort in the heart of the scent. The masculinity is masterfully balanced with artemisia, sage and sparkling orange flower in order to enliven the core vetiver character. They give its clean and grounded sophistication a surge of unexpected energy.
THE DRY DOWN
As the full impact of Grey Vetiver’s exclusive vetiver extract begins to unfold, a fascinating richness blends with a wash of golden, warm amber woods, while oakmoss enhances the green and woodsy aspect of this special ingredient, ensuring it never emerges as too earthy or pungent. The addition of musk brings a breath of sheer flesh-like sensuality that is compelling and irresistible. This group of important notes harmonizes in the dry down to let TOM FORD GREY VETIVER EAU DE TOILETTE float coolly on the skin while subtly melting into the body’s heat at the same time.
TOM FORD GREY VETIVER EAU DE TOILETTE is a pale juice encased in a clear 50 ml/1.7 oz and 100 m/3.4pz version of the iconic bottle. The silver-toned cap and neck ring, and a palladium plaque embossed with the TOM FORD logo captures the cool silvery character of vetiver. The bottle is packaged in a new white fluted carton bearing silver foil accents and borders, and a shiny silver label that bears the fragrance name.
