Tom Ford Is Launching High Tech Skin-Care Collection

 

Tom-Ford-Research

It’s been three years in the making, but Tom Ford’s debut skincare line is finally heading our way.

In 2006, when Tom Ford reached beyond his fashion foundations to launch an eponymous empire that included fragrances and, come 2011, makeup, it emerged as one of the most coveted names in beauty. One very significant category has been conspicuously missing from the luxury brand’s offerings, though: skin care. But now, more than a decade later, Ford is expanding his partnership with Estée Lauder to launch Tom Ford Research.

I wanted to start a serious skin-care arm and have it be science-based. This is a real skin-care product and regimen. I’m not a designer who has thrown his name on a beautifully packaged cream.

Tom Ford

Ford told WWD in a new interview about the upcoming debut, ensuring consumers they’re not just splurging on something that will look lovely on their vanities.

So, to ensure his new skin-care products were being formulated with a commitment to science, Ford requested and received his own dedicated lab from Estée Lauder. After 75 different trial concoctions, its first two creations – Serum Concentrate and Crème Concentrate –  are mere weeks away from debuting in the U.S. at Tom Ford boutiques and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Tom Ford is a true visionary. He has this unique ability to see into the future, as expressed through his singular vision and trailblazing fashion to create an inimitable world of seduction and uncompromising exclusivity.

Guillaume Jesel, President Tom Ford Beauty

Both products rely heavily on caffeine from a Japanese green tea called gyokuro and the rare white porcelain cacao. “Years ago, a dermatologist told me that the best thing for puffy eyes was moist tea bags. Every time I did it, I noticed that it also moisturized my skin”, Ford told WWD, explaining why so much of the brand’s research was focused on caffeine. There’s much more to the product than caffeine, though; Ford tells WWD that the products also contain AHAs like glycolic and lactic acids, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.

If you’re worried that this new launch means Ford is taking his eye off the ball in the beauty categories he already thrives in, don’t. A new fragrance called Métallique just joined his iconic collection, and you can find the floral-aldehyde – a first for the brand – at Sephora, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus.

Beauty doesn’t come cheap, Tom Ford Research Serum Concentrate will be available for $350 and Crème Concentrate for $450. Tom Ford Research Serum Concentrate and Crème Concentrate launch in August, and three more products, including an eye cream, will debut in spring 2020. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.

 

 

 

 

Tom Ford Métallique arty fragrance film

 

 

Willful. Fearless. Addictive. Beneath its cool veneer, the floral heart of new Tom Ford Métallique scent is amplified by juxtaposing delicate white blossoms of aubepine and muguet with the narcotic-like nectar of heliotrope.

Forged with elegant brilliance, Tom Ford Métallique mesmerizes its admirers with a pulsating flash of modern, resolute femininity, willful, luminous and in full bloom.

Tom Ford Métallique was created by perfumer Antoine Maisondieu. One of the ingredients which defines perfume of the mid-20th century is aldehydes. From their appearance in Chanel No. 5 they were prevalent in many of the great floral perfumes which followed. It was so entwined with that era in perfume it also came to represent it. It also is the one ingredient which elicits the damning reaction, “….that perfume is for someone older than me”. It is the keynote of the dreaded descriptor ‘old lady perfume’. This has kept it from being used very often in new perfumes. Tom Ford Metallique is going to try to change that.

Tom-Ford-Metallique-09

Like an armored embroidered dress, the metallic sheath of lighter-than-air aldehydes opens the scent like a second skin. The collision of crisp vert de bergamote and pink peppercorn further steel the insatiability of the first impression. The floral heart is amplified by juxtaposing delicate white blossoms of aubepine and muguet with the narcotic-like nectar of heliotrope. An aura of ambrette seed imparts warmth with woody inflections of peru balsam. The soft scent of vanilla and creamy sandalwood layer an addictive, contrasting finish that further drives the metallic suiting of the open.

Top Note: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Pink peppercorn
Heart Note: Heliotrope, Lily of the Valley, Hawthorn
Base Note: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Ambretta seed, Peru balsam

The addictive aldehyde start envelopes a much more sensual core of delicately layered white flowers, creating a contrast that shifts from cool to lush. Aubepine, an ancestor of the rose that’s more complex and piquant, blends with sweet muguet and intoxicating nectar of heliotrope that’s both light and powdery and powerfully rich. The closing notes bring a layer of warmth — which is ideal for a scent that’ll take you into crisp fall — thanks to ambrette seed, balsam, vanilla, and creamy sandalwood. It’s a finish that brings a comforting effect to the bold, metallic start of this multi-toned fragrance.

Tom-Ford-Metallique-10

The smooth, silver bottle with gold-toned label and cap echo the precious metal theme of the Tom Ford Métallique, and impart a luxe look that’ll elevate your vanity. Plus, with an appearance that’s totally different from the rest of Tom Ford’s perfumes, it’ll be the standout that’ll help you make a statement during the shift from summer to autumn.

Tom Ford Métallique is available as 50 ($150) or 100 ($195) ml Eau de Parfum. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.

 

 

 

 

Tom Ford Beau de Jour

American fashion designer Tom Ford has also paved its name in the perfumery world as being one of the most acclaimed of perfumes crafting rare, exclusive, and long-lasting fragrances. This year, along with Estee Lauder Companies, Tom Ford introduces its new classic/spicy-fougère masculine perfume Beau de Jour, part of the famous Private Blend Collection.

Classic. Sharp. Maverick. Beau de Jour fragrance presents the perfectly-groomed gentleman who considers every detail. He exhibits the best version of himself to the world, but beneath the surface is something deeper, refreshing, and sublime in all its layers.

Tom Ford

Beau de Jour is a masculine fragrance from the Tom Ford Private Blend Collection that represents a perfectly groomed gentleman. Described as classic, sharp and maverick, Beau de Jour combines classic aromatic fougère accords such as moss, lavender and amber.

A fresh, commanding entrance of Lavender from Provence introduces the clean and fervent facets of Tom Ford Beau de Jour. The cool and refreshing open is further amplified with an infusion of energetic hybrid of lavender and lavenders. The core beats with the herbal inflection of African Rosemary and floral green Geranium with its subtle mint inflection, a powerful contrast to the leather-like warmth of Oakmoss and the electric green of Basil. Patchouli and Amber create an earthy foundation of radiant wood and sensual musky warmth, further elevating Beau de Jour’s refreshing notion of masculinity through the finish.

How to use it: On clean skin, spray fragrance once or twice on desired areas. Do not rub the fragrance on skin, as this will alter how the fragrance develops.

Tom Ford Beau de Jour is available as 50, 100 and 250ml Eau de Parfum. Come into the wonderful world of Tom Ford.

 

 

 

Tom Ford Costa Azzurra Acqua

The new year promises to be an aromatic one as many stylish and elegant perfumes are set to be released. Not an exception comes from the fashion designer Tom Ford. The Neroli Portofino Collection has received a new edition, a fresher version of the original Costa Azzurra fragrance launched in 2014, named Costa Azzurra Acqua. The composition of Costa Azzurra Acqua is a woody-aromatic one with fresh citrus and fougère facets.

Costa Azzurra Acqua is a fresher expression of Costa Azzura. It merges cool air and refreshing waters as one.

Tom Ford

The fragrance represents the interpretation of salty waves of the wind and the sea that collide with the heat of the sun on the body. The moment of impact of the fresh sea air mixes salty with woody notes on the beach, wild cypress, juniper and myrtle. Lemony citrus notes refresh the earthy accords of pine cones and needles.

Perfect for men and women, Costa Azzurra Acqua is easy to be worn during the day.  Tom Ford Costa Azzurra Acqua is available in flacons of 50 and 100ml Cologne.

Tom Ford, sooo Fucking Fabulous

 

Tom-Ford-Fucking-Fabulous-Collection.jpg

World-renowned designer Tom Ford has created a true luxury brand for the 21st century. His collections cater to women and men who seek the ultimate in style, sophistication and exclusiveity. The Tom Ford beauty collection offers sumptuous cosmetics and extraordinary fragrances, achieving ravishing feminine glamour and impeccable masculine style while still amplifying individuality.

Last year, the American designer sent out his new fragrance Fucking Fabulous, from his Private Blend perfume line, along  with the invitations to his Spring 2018 fashion show. It launched with a bang and immediately went viral but retailers grappled with its potty-mouthed moniker.  A U.K. airport had the word ‘Fucking’ crossed out on the bottle. A Saks Fifth Avenue in Houston, Texas, was said to have it on full display but a Neiman Marcus in the same city had a bottle hidden behind the counter with a sticker over the expletive. But how did the name even come to be?

The word ‘fucking’ helped describe the scent of my new fragrance.

Tom Ford

You might be wondering: was there ever any push back about the name of the Fucking Fabulous scent? Well, to put your curiosities at bay, a publicist at Tom Ford Beauty once said the name was “a 100% Tom decision. We don’t negotiate with Tom Ford”.

And it looks like the description resonated, because Ford released more Fucking Fabulous products yesterday. The new additions to the Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Collection contain similar notes or, in the case of the lipstick, themes.

Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Body Spray

 

Tom-Ford-F.cking-Fabulous-All-Over-Body-Spray

The Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous All Over Body Spray meanwhile, can be worn alone from head to toe (consider it a gym bag essential) or layered layered on top of the Fucking Fabulous Eau de Parfum for a longer-lasting finish and to add a second dimension to the scent, an ultra sensual blend of rich leather and tonka bean, refreshing clary sage, powdery orris root, sweet vanilla and bitter almond.

 

Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Candle

 

Tom-Ford-F.cking-Fabulous-Candle.jpg

For true lovers of the scent, you can now take your obsession one step further with a Fucking Fabulous candle. A decadent oriental leather scented candle with a name that says it all. Its intoxicating grip and warm glow, evokes private exchanges and insider moments where fantasies come true. The lavender and clary sage combine with amber, iris and tonka been for a luscious effect that is calling for a night in. The Fucking Fabulous Candle, comes in a sleek black glass jar with a graphic white label and 40 hours of burn time.

Notice: Do not burn longer than 1/2 hours or leave unattended. Allow to solidify before relighting. Should black smoke appear, trim the wick. It should be clean and no longer than 1/4.

 

Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Flaming Crimson Lip Color

 

Tom-Ford-F.cking-Fabulous-Flaming-Crimson-Lip-Color.jpg

Last but certainly not least, the Fucking Fabulous Flaming Crimson Lip Color is a limited-edition lip color that makes a statement that’s anything but ordinary, in a bold, intensely shiny, vibrant true red. It comes in a matte black tube, but the vibrant hue has a high-shine and nourishing finish thanks to the infusion of chamomilla flower oil, soja seed extract and Brazilian murumuru butter. And in true Tom Ford style, it’s all in sleek, Limited Edition matte black packaging. (Fucking) Fabulous, indeed!

To round out the collection, there is also available a gift set on the company’s website.

Tom Ford Ombré Leather (2018)

 

Tom-Ford-Ombré-Leather-Banner

Fashion house Tom Ford creates breathtaking and outstanding fragrances, which can be easily worn by men and women as well. All of them are created of very rare and exquisite ingredients, nicely and temptingly sealed in amazing bottles to leave behind unforgettable aromas.

Tom Ford Ombré Leather is a deeply textural scent that imprints you with a tactile sensuality. It makes one feel different, beautiful, and desired.

Tom Ford

This autumn shows up a perfectly new perfume for both men and women, Tom Ford Ombré Leather 2018 – a flanker to Ombré Leather 16 from 2016. Leather notes in a perfume, especially in mens, are simply gorgeous. I simply adore the masculinity of leather and wood in a perfume that smells so unique and elegant.

Tom-Ford-Ombré-Leather-GIF

Tom Ford Ombré Leather 2018 is the new updated and modern version of the original perfume, which is more better improved. Those wearers that adored the original perfume or at least the Tuscan Leather perfume, will find the new version more captivating, tempting, not overpowering, and will get lots of compliments whenever put it on.

Vast. Untethered. Driven. Freedom comes from within, the desert heart of the west wrapped in leather. It moves forward, untethered, through the still air of wide-open space. Dust on wind, skin on skin, Ombré Leather reveals itself like a landscape in layers, where stretches of rock transform into sunrise blonde low on the horizon.

Top notes: Cardamom
Heart notes: Jasmine sambac, Leather
Base notes: Amber, Musk, Patchouili

Ombré Leather 2018 opens spicy cardamom notes along with intense leather accords and Jasmine Sambac. The woody base calms with amber, musk, and patchouli. Simple, yet memorizing and long-lasting.

 

Tom-Ford-Ombré-Leather-(2018).jpg

I consider the new TF perfume an ideal accessory for any time of the year, and for any occasion. The intense leathery/woody fragrance is not overwhelming, yet maintaining a nice and lingering aroma.

Tom Ford Ombré Leather 2018 is available in 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.

 

 

 

 

Debut of Tom Ford’s 001 watches

Tom-Ford-001-Watch-1

After Tom Ford’s announcement back in January 2017, we finally get the first real look at Ford’s first timepiece. The Swiss-built timepiece sports a simple, rectangular design with Arabic numerals, made in collaboration with Bedrock Manufacturing.

An avid watch collector himself, American designer Tom Ford brings more than a little knowledge to bear on his eponymous 001 Watch. The sophisticated Swiss-made timepieces are finally launching to join Ford’s timeless empire of ready to wear, sunglasses, fragrances, handbags, and makeup.

Tom-Ford-001-Watch-5

Tom-Ford-001-Watch-3

Two sizes will be available, in a variety of case materials such as 18-karat yellow gold and matte black DLC. The collection also features a 62 interchangeable strap options in 30 shades, from hand-woven braided leather, pebbled grain leather to alligator. Colours span from neutrals like black, cognac, nude to brights like cerulean and saffron, which Ford emphasises that characterizes it as a uni-sex watch.

The watches are built alongside with Michigan design powerhouse Bedrock Manufacturing, the company behind Shinola and Filson. It isn’t exactly clear at this stage whether it houses a quartz or an automatic movement (it is pretty thin, which would suggest it might be quartz), and given Shinola’s movements have been, up until this point, provided by Ronda, it can be assumed that so will these. Ford’s timepieces may thus be designed with Ronda calibers with quartz, which is the supplier of the base movements used in Shinola and Filson watches. However, little is revealed on the movement from the release and we wait on Tom Ford for further details.

Tom-Ford-001-Watch-2-1170x780

Tom-Ford-001-Watch-4

Initially unavailable online, the 001 is currently available at Tom Ford boutiques in New York, Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Houston, Atlanta, Milan, London, Zurich, Hong Kong, Macau, Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Osaka, Tokyo, Nagoya, Kobe and Seoul (though apparently they will be up for sale on their web store ‘soon’).

Depending on an individual’s configuration, Tom Ford’s 001 watch prices will range from $2,190 to $10,100, depending on your configuration of case material and strap etc. Come into the world of Tom Ford watches and into the world of Ronda.
