Tom Ford Ebene Fume Eau de Parfum is all about drier, calmly creamy woods with bits of spice, whether or not from spiced, smoky incense or sweeter resins. It began out extra fiery, peppery, and inexperienced prior to moving into smoky, drier woods with a touch of leather-based, after which after all drying all the way down to a candy, heat woods. The notes are:
- most sensible notes: incense, Palo Santo picket, black pepper, violet leaf
- center notes: leather-based, cade oil, labdanum, papyrus, rose
- base notes: resins, ebony tree, Guaiac picket
It opened with peppery, billowing incense over easy woods; it made me call to mind the odor of fireplaces burning within the wintertime however much less intense and delicate–extra the concept that of campfire in the course of a woodland, as a result of there was once was once extra than simply incense smoke however one thing darker however by no means to the purpose the place it was once burnt or charred.
The woods have been noticeably drier after quarter-hour of selecting my pores and skin because the papyrus observe emerged. Because the incense receded to the background, Ebene Fume become creamy, dry woods and elderly leather-based with a modicum of resinous sweetness. I felt just like the candy, calmly spiced resins added extra heat and smoothed out the composition, despite the fact that the incense was once extra of a blown out haze after an hour of wear and tear. It was once a extra linear adventure, which isn’t a nasty factor as long as you revel in the ones notes, and it simplest sweetened and become creamier over the following few hours within the drydown.
For checking out, I used two sprays implemented to the bottom and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the heady scent as this could also be my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered heady scent didn’t dangle properly right here differently.
It lasted for 8 hours till it was once a skin-scent and about 14 hours prior to it was once relatively tricky to discover on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable with the sillage shedding quicker than the projection inside 4 hours of wear and tear.
I loved the perfume and located it sat properly on my pores and skin, was once well-blended, and appeared to odor so much love it sounded love it would (which is all the time a plus), however I think like I’ve smelled this prior to from Tom Ford — a spicier, smokier Santal Blush however strangely identical. I like it to Santal Blush through levels, since I benefit from the addition of extra spice and smoke.
