Tom Ford Ombre de Hyacinth was released as part of the Tom Ford Jardin Noir (Night Garden) series. Ombre de Hyacinth means "Hyacinth's Shadow" and has a more earthy take on this green springy flower - notes of galbanum, violet leaf and magnolia leaf on a musky base.
Tom Ford Jardin Noir (Night Garden) series for his Private Blend Collection was released in the fall 2012. He told the New York Times, when asked about this new series, "'When you showcase their [the flower's] darker and less innocent aspects, flowers can become so thrilling and beautiful, they could almost ruin you. That was the sensation I was after."
Tom Ford Private Collection has released a prodigious number of fragrances, ranging from the amazing to the weird to the slightly kinky. Not all of them are masterpieces, but they usually are as interesting as Tom Ford himself.
from Get Lippie - "It starts dry, green and bitter, oozing with resinous galbanum, reminiscent – in a very distant way – of the opening of Chanel No19. When sniffed on paper, (but not onskin), there’s almost a hay, or drying grass accord, but on my skin, it’s a little sweeter, a little more floral, with just a hint of soil beneath, and it’s a fascinating fragrance whilst this bit lasts. Personally, I don’t know what hyacinths smell like, but the first hour or so of this fragrance is really lovely, yes it is flowery, but in an unusual green and slightly dirty way, like flowers from bulbs, rather than cut flowers. MrLippie likes it very much too, which is very unusual for a floral fragrance."
