Estee Lauder SA yesterday opened the first Tom Ford Private Blend counter in South Africa at Stuttafords, Sandton City. Stocking Tom Ford fragrances and most notably his private blend collection, the counter will also stock Tom Ford cosmetics. The private blend fragrances were on display last night and this blogger tried some of the scents with “Oud Wood” emerging as a favourite for myself and other people I spoke to. I’m sure there are many others I would have loved, but the selection is so wide, trying all in one go was just not possible for my nose. Should anybody be feeling generous, however, this Frock Report would not mind the entire collection as a Christmas prezzie. At R 1, 750 for a 50ml bottle it is surely not too much to pay for a piece of Tom Ford. And damn! the Black Orchid I have on today… Heads are turning.
