Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Inspired – No.475 Intense
Main accords : Citrus, white floral, fresh spicy, aromatic
Fresh, refined and effortlessly sophisticated, this fragrance brings out all the best aspects of the Southern Italian countryside. It exudes a classy citrus charm that projects a warmth and sense of belonging into any atmosphere. It opens with soft notes of bergamot, lavender and rosemary which develop into the true star of the fragrance – neroli. This flower is soft and inviting, and compliments the initial citrus tones with beautiful harmony. The base is one of amber, which adds even more sophistication to an already sophisticated fragrance. This is a great one for spring or summer evenings sat relaxing with friends and a bottle of wine, and is truly unisex.
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino is Tom Ford’s take on the classic Eau de Cologne type of fragrance. That is, orange flower blossom, citrus, herbs and amber. This is a very simple recipe, and it’s one which is available in many forms.
It opens up extremely fresh and soap-like. It smells very refined and natural and if the intention was to smell luxurious then this succeeds at it.
However, even though this is an Eau de Parfum concentration, it still lacks projection and longevity. This is simply because of its composition. Its made to be light and refreshing and perfect for a nice sunny day on the beach or in your yacht. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino was made to mimic the summer smells of the worlds most known cologne (4711). But instead of being made to a cologne concertation it was made to a proper Eau de parfum concentration. Invigorating. Uplifting. Transcending.
It is a great fragrance, no doubt about that..smells incredibly fresh and alive but definitely suited for the summer times.
