THE MASTER OF GROOMING - TOM FORD

Tom Ford - Salon De Parfums

Tom Ford - Salon De Parfums

I've been on a bit of a hunt for a new signature fragrance of late, something unique, something that not every one is wearing, something you cant buy in Boots! So I headed over to the hidden gem that is the Salon De Parfums in Harrods - tucked away on the 6th floor accessed only via the escalators near door 3. At the Tom Ford display, I was greeted by a lovely lady who knew every single ingredient in every single of Tom's created fragrances. Not only that but also the travel story that Tom Ford was on which influenced the creation of many scents.

The sheer number of fragrances available was a little overwhelming, so choosing your favourite can take time. Luckily, at Tom Ford's Salon De Parfums, they offer an experinece and not just a shopping trip. Sit down, read, or take some champagne. All good things have to come to an end and after smelling so many of the fragrances and about half an hour later, I finally chose my two favourites which were Noir De Noir and Soleil Blanc

Fine grooming is the mark of a modern gentleman. It is the way a man presents the best version
of himself to the world.
— Tom Ford

On the way home from a stag do in Liverpool last weekend, some poor 21 year old girl reserved her seat in the middle of a stinky team of 14 guys, who have been drinking for 3 days straight. So what do a bunch of 30 something year old guys with limited chat get her to do....guess our ages of course. Lucky for me, she shaved 7 years off me suggesting I was 28, maybe the sunlight hid my ever expanding patches of grey hair! We are all going to get old at some point but we can look after ourselves better so that we keep that youthful look for longer. I do have quite a strict grooming regime but I've now tweaked and improved it with these new Tom Ford products. Knowing how Tom Ford uses only the highest quality ingredients in his fragrances, his skincare and grooming range was always going to top notch and luckily for me, I managed to get my hands on a few new mens grooming products which will be on sale from 1st June 2016, a day before my birthday (hint hint!).

Tom Ford developed the Tom Ford for Men Skincare and Grooming collection based on the products and grooming regimen he uses himself – a regimen that is simple, straightforward and intuitive. New innovations include Tom Ford for Men Brow Gelcomb, exclusively designed for men’s brows, Shave Oil and Exfoliator, launching June 2016.
