Azure Lime by Tom Ford 2010

Hey All!
Short and sweet today. You all know how I love Tom Ford and think he understands fashion and the craziness all that embodies better than anyone else I know of on the planet.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords in one line:
Woodsy notes, floral notes, citrus, musk

Light, sparkling, fizzy lime opens up and stays for ages, as it calms the woods and musk play salty beach samba rhythms till tomorrow lunchtime. Are there really flowers? I never smelled them but what I can smell is so gorgeous and fun, then so reminiscent of summer that it is beyond good. Definite date night with intentions to cook breakfast and roll around in bed till teatime. It will last and smell gorgeous till then. Promise.

Loads of reviewers are complaining that it smells like a cologne that you can get across the aisle for much less money. I agree that it smells a little like them, it’s fresh, aquatic in the best sense and summery, and yes, if you wore the cheaper versions you would smell nice too but Azure Lime has a swagger, a cock-sure-ness that they lack, and is blended so beautifully that I think it justifies the extra spend if you have that kind of money. Otherwise cross the aisle and get something withing your budget. The idea is to smell good, not beggar yourself. Maybe you could get a sample or decant of Azure Lime, or go in on a split?

    I’m in love with the Tom Ford style right now. You make me want to splash some cash on this one but I might try and get a date before I shop for a perfect date fragrance lol!

    I love Tom Ford too!!! I wish his perfumes were not so bloody expensive!!!!!!

    • Absolutely Arline. He is certainly keeping them aspirational.
      Having said that though, if you were to be a regular fragrance buyer who purchased only 2 bottles a year it would be less outrageous. Junkies like us want it all though. I say go with a decant.

    I like the name, the bottle but yet to surrender to chance. But hey that’s what the useful wish list is for.

    I think I tried Azure Lime at some point but I have no recollection about it.

    I’m sorry but an opinion is like a nose (everybody’s got one) and my nose confirms the Azure Lame “euphemism”. Really boring, ridiculously expensive and 3$ cologne is not the only other alternative to it. You can find good citruses in all the price ranges and if you are going to spend that much you might as well invest in niche or indie perfumes.
    In general I think TF might have been suffering from lack of inspiration for the last few years, as a result of overworking himself in his effort to flood the market with all the new products that bear his name.

    ps: The picture of the male model is beyond bad too! Is he letting one rip? AND in a borrowed suit???
