Tom Ford's Violet Blonde Serves Up Floral Scents With A Side Of Lara Stone

embed
Tom Ford not only wants you to look sophisticated, he also wants you to smell like the epitome of sophistication. Tapping into the redolence of old-world Italy and France, Ford's newest scent, Violet Blonde, is an insta-classic with a unique level of refinement and feminine seduction. As the fashion world's jack-of-all-trades, Ford executes all of his work with painstaking perfection: Finely tailored suits, impeccable specs, and yes, fragrances that can stand the test at any major scent house. Playing into the idea of the quintessential European fragrance, the essence combines violet leaf with tones of orris and iris. Powerful jasmine notes bring a bright center, while the finishing cedar note is smooth and musky, perfect for a fall signature that's sexy and rich. We're pretty sold, but the image of Lara Stone in a bed of violets has us sweating this scent even more.
Tom Ford Violet Blonde, $100-$145, available exclusively at Saks.
