Lavender Palm By Tom Ford - Private Collection
Continuing his Private Blend collection, Tom Ford presents Lavender Palm, a sunny and aromatic fragrance. Composed around lavender and palm trees, as the name implies, this eau de parfum pays tribute to California. A destination ‘synonymous with all-natural vitality, and a relaxed yet refined elegance,’ Tom Ford explains.
The composition opens with the fragrance’s key note, lavender. It appears here in the form of an absolute, paired with lavandin, a different variety of lavender. The aromatic flower is paired with citrus and sage. The heart creates an ‘accord of palm leaf and aldehydes’ intertwined with pink laurel, lime tree, vetiver and cedar. The sweeter dry-down blends benzoin, tonka bean, frankincense and moss.
