NEROLI PORTOFINO BY TOM FORD

  |   BEAUTY

TOM FORD’S SPARKLING HOMAGE TO THE ITALIAN RIVIERA

Like a cool Mediterranean breeze or the glimmering waters of the Amalfi Coast, Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino is an elegantly refreshing and slightly exotic vision of summer. Created in collaboration with perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux (the nose behind Tom Ford’s award-winning Jasmin Rouge) and constructed as a reinvention of a classic Eau de Cologne, the fragrance’s ingredients affirms Mr. Ford’s inspiration with the white softness of blooming Tunisian Neroli, Italian Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon,  and  the subtle but therapeutic blasts of Provencal Rosemary and Lavender. The sophisticated sensuousness of the fragrance is further expressed by the presence of amber deep within the base which adds an unexpected touch of solar-like warmth. But what makes the fragrance even more appealing is the entire range of bath and body products that have been designed to complement the Eau de Parfum. Each product has been infused with the fragrance concentration so as to preserve the olfactive integrity of the complex composition. From rich lathering shower gel to a luxuriously rich and creamy body moisturizer, the bath and body products like the fragrance itself are highly inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle and have been created around three essential oils: date seed, grape seed, and of course olive oil which leave the skin both smooth and amazingly radiant. For Spring 2012, Mr. Ford introduced a 236ml Body Splash to provide a lighter and even more effervescent variation of the Eau de Parfum.  Equally stunning is the packaging which boldly breaks from the Private Blends standard amber glass  as a crystalline turquoise glass accented by rich gold metallics and adds bathroom glamour as only Mr. Ford could imagine.  Available products include the Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum, Bath Bar, Shower Grl, Body Scrub, Body Moisturizer, Body Oil, and Body Splash.
