Tom Ford has two prestige lines of fragrances: Private Blends and Signature Scents. The first masculine signature scent of Tom Ford launched in 2007 is Tom Ford for Men. The next one is Grey Vetiver which has also become a crowd favorite. The third Signature men’s cologne is Tom Ford Noir.
Noir by Tom Ford is an amber woody male cologne launched in 2012. It has an initial impression of bitter, spicy, and green notes. The opening is dusty and relatively dry. But then the harshness slowly fades and becomes warm and powdery. The heart of this cologne is a blend of mellow spiced iris and rose. Most fans are crazy about Noir’s base. It is a playful war between smooth powdery vanilla, leather, and rich balsams.
Noir becomes more floral the longer it stays in your skin. But it also offers plenty of spices, resinous thickness, and warmth. Noir is not just floral. It is also earthy and a little old school.
Noir is bottled in a sleek black bottle with a rigged cap. It adds to the elegance and appeal of the cologne.

How Long Does Tom Ford Noir Last?
Noir by Tom Ford has very impressive longevity. On average, it can last up to 10 to 12 hours. However, longevity can be affected by the user’s skin chemistry. It can last longer or shorter depending on how your skin embraces it.

Sillage and Projection
Tom Ford Noir has an excellent sillage and projection. A few sprays can invade a room full of people, especially at the beginning. Then, it calms down and becomes a mellow powdery, and sweet scent.
You’ll receive compliments while wearing Noir by Tom Ford. Be prepared for stares and glares. However, be more considerate and mindful of those who may not like the scent. Spray it before entering a room to give the scent enough time to mellow down.
