I’m a massive fan of Tom Ford and have only just managed to bring myself to use the lipstick without a brush for fear of smudging the ‘TF’ logo. His scents are iconic and really make a huge difference to the landscape of the department store beauty halls, bringing a bit of retro glamour (think Mad Men) back into our lives. Tom launched a new addition to his range in February, three beautiful candles, and I’ve managed to get my hands on one.
There are three scents – the unique Tuscan Leather, beautiful Oud Wood and stunning Tobacco Vanille which is sitting proudly in my living room. They come packaged in the simple and classic packaging that adorn the fragrances and the wax sits in a dark brown glass pot. I didn’t even realise the ‘TF’ logo features until I took a photo, because it’s just so subtle! I wouldn’t expect anything less from Mr Ford because they’re just so beautiful, as is he.
When I first opened this the smell instantly hits you because the percentage of fragrance is so high. It sat in a room for a few days unlit and the scent dispersed into the air making my flat smell amazing without even getting out a match. When you light it the scent, as you can imagine, is even more stunning and really moves around the air making you sit back, relax and take it in. I think I’m in love with this candle! At £50 they’re pricey, but with candles you very much get what you pay for and with this you pay for a beautiful experience. It would make an amazing Mother’s Day gift… if you can bear to part with it and give it away.
