Tom Ford Plum Japonais - a fruity floral centered on the ume plum with rich, exotic Asian notes underlying it. This is usually compared to Serge Lutens Fille en Anguilles, along with rumors that Christopher Sheldrake was the perfumer on both.
Notes include saffron, Laotian cinnamon bark, immortelle, Sawara cypress, Japanese camellia blossom, oud, amber, Laotian benzoin, fir balsam absolute and vanilla.
Tom Ford Atelier d'Orient series from his Private Blend Collection was released in the fall of 2013, and Tom Ford Plum Japonais was part of that collection.
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.
Tom Ford Plum Japonais Reviews
From Influenster - "Worth every penny! I did not think I would like such a strong/expensive fragrance & boy was a I wrong. I fell in love with this scent when I smelled it on a male co-worker. I loved it even more in myself. It's very warm/fall but it's a definite go to. I highly recommend & would re-purchase."
From Luckyscent - "The opening on this fragrance is fantastic. Dark fruity plum, spices, vanilla and slightly floral. It tends to lose the intense fruitiness from it's initial spray and the vanilla tends to come out more. It doesn't stray too much although, I would prefer a more "clear" sweetness as opposed to a "cloudy" or "creamy" sweetness this gradually grows into. I hoped it stayed closer to the opening but, it's still a great fragrance and one I happily purchased. "
