Candles, colour and a decadent Christmas

Today I went to the Arts Club in Mayfair for a preview of what Tom Ford have in store for us this Christmas.

Private Blend
First on my list was a fragrance experience to discover four new Private Blend fragrances. Quite unlike most of Tom Ford’s current scents, these are very green by nature. Here’s a run through of each…

Tom Ford Winter 2016 Private Blend

Vert Boheme
One of my favourites of the four, this reminded me of freshly cut grass. This is the citrus floral offering from the four, featuring an ingredient which only blooms once per year.

Vert D’Encens
A sweet and oriental offering, this harmonises a light incense undertone with a fresh and heady hit of pine.

Vert de Bois
Inspired by the green of the woods, this is a woody, chypre mix. Heady notes of aniseed, rosemary and leather add a real thickness to this fragrance. To me it smells wet; a very earthy fragrance.

Vert de Fleur
My favourite of the four, this bold floral explosion was made in an ode to the 70’s. One of my favourite Tom Ford scents is Fleur de Portofino, and there is a real synergy between these two. This one of the four will be exclusive to Harrods on initial launch and land everywhere else after three months.

In addition to these new scents, Tom Ford will be releasing candles in the scents of some of his best loved Private Blends. There are six in total, each in a heavy ceramic case.

Now onto colour. Imagine my surprise when I noticed two beautiful new palettes and an entire limited Soleil collection. These are going to land in October and I’m yet to confirm all details, but this is what I know so far…

Tom Ford Winter 2016 Soleil

LIMITED Warm palette, £98
These stunning palettes contains four brand new eye shades and two brand new blush shades, all in decadent white packaging.

LIMITED Cool palette, £98

LIMITED Soleil Blanc Dry Oil Spray, £45
Given how quickly the summer shimmering body oil sold out in the Soleil Blanc collection, I think this is going to be a huge hit. For those that love the Soleil Blanc fragrance but can’t quite stretch to a full bottle, this is a wonderful alternative way to enjoy the fragrance.

Face Protect SPF50, £54
A necessary addition to the permanent line, this SPF is light and easily absorbed, layering gently under your make-up.

LIMITED Lip Foils (6 shades), £39
There will be six new lipsticks in the Soleil collection.

And then for everything else this winter…

Lips and Boys, £28 each
Tom Ford’s miniature lipsticks are such a lovely gift or introduction to the brand. Each is named after a significant boy in his life.

Waterproof Foundation/Concealer, £TBC
Finally a full coverage foundation offering from Tom Ford. In his usual simplistic but luxury approach, this doubles up as a concealer or foundation to be used as desired.

Shimmer Shot, £TBC
If you like the Illuminating Primers you’re going to love these. These pigmented creams add instant life and glow to dull skin. Use alone along cheekbones, brow bones and as desired or mix into your foundation to add luminosity.

Fiber Brow Gel, £TBC
A building aid for the brows, these fiber gels add both tint and density to the brows. What I especially like about these is that the wand is very small, helping you to achieve as precise a finish as you desire.

Lip Contour Duo, £TBC
Tom Ford is not a fan of lip liner so please don’t be fooled into that this is what he’s created. This Contour Duo is designed more to sculpt and build the lip shape, adding fullness where necessary without any artificial, tell-tale lines.

And to wrap it all? They’ve even got their decadent packaging covered.
