Tom Ford - Sahara Noir


Dreams and fantasies, which are which and what is when and why? Mysteries and heart songs, folk tales and memories threaded through my DNA culminate in  kaleidoscopic flashes of brilliance in royal blue and amber, ochre and threads of gold. Royal gifts of sacred spice tempered with memories of loss and longing. Tears and humming and hot sands, whirling and drumming and warm hands. Reflections in polished brass, eyes rimmed in kohl, other eyes burning with intensity, searing my soul. Imprinted.

Balsamic - Amber - Smoky - Warm Spicy - Woody

Sahara Noir
 is an oriental-woody scent based on incense. Bitter orange, Levantine cypress (known as one of the plants growing in the gardens of the 1001 Arabian Nights) and cistus essence Orpur® (Orpur® are high-quality natural ingredients of extraordinary purity, developed by Givaudan) open the composition. The heart blends frankincence essence Orpur®, cinnamon, cool papyrus extract, rose absolute from Morocco and Egyptian jasmin with honeyed and animalic shades of beeswax from Burma.The base centers around warm amber notes - made of labdanum absolute and ambreinol (an intense natural labdanum fraction), cedar, frankincense resin, benzoin, vanilla, oud and balsams. 

One of my absolute favourite fragrances.
