Vibrant. Sparkling. Transportive. To Tom Ford, this scent perfectly captures the cool breezes, sparkling clear water, and lush foliage of the Italian Rivera. His reinvention of a classic eau de cologne features crisp citrus oils, surprising floral notes, and amber undertones to leave a splashy yet substantive impression.
Fragrance Notes: Tunisian Neroli, Italian Bergamot, Sicilian Lemon, Winter Yellow Mandarin, Orange Flower, Lavender.
Style: Vibrant. Sparkling. Transportive.
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum is one of the few Tom Ford perfumes that I have tried, and it also falls into the very exclusive category of perfumes that I absolutely cannot stand. Going by the flowery descriptions I was expecting a zesty, spicy, sparkly scent, but the nicest thing I can say about it is this smells "clean" - a soapy/cleanser sort of smell. The fragrance starts off very sharp, and the soapy smell just seems to get stronger and stronger as time goes on. This is quite a popular perfume going by reviews on Sephora, but I will have to just assume my nose is missing what others seem to be able to detect. The fragrance does last forever on my skin, though, way more longlasting than I would like it to be! Definitely one Tom Ford perfume I can cross of my list, and no, and I don't want the other human in the house to smell like this either.
