Scent-sational: Tom Ford Santal Blush
The first time I heard about this perfume was while watching amodelrecomends perfume collection on youtube, I have purchased perfumes that Ruth has reviewed before and I have absolutely loved them, so when this perfume was mentioned I new I had to try it... then I noticed the cost!
I visited Harvey Nichols on a trip to Edinburgh last year and the first counter I spotted when walking through the doors was of course the Tom Ford counter, I walked over and spritzed a little onto the card and instantly fell in love but I couldn't justify the cost so instead I bought Agent Provocateur (another from Ruth's collection - but the summer edition). A year later on another trip, I bit the bullet, took the plunge and splurged out £135 for the 50ml.
I received some sighs and shocked faces from family members but then I let them smell it and a few could then justify the cost.
Now I am not great at describing scents so I have included what Harvey Nichols had to say on their website. All I can say is that it is sophisticated, womanly, very sexy and most definitely a nighttime scent, whenever I wear this I always get compliments or asked what perfume I'm wearing. It is very strong and one spray too many could be overpowering and sickly with this fragrance a little goes a long way, so although it's pricey I can't see it being used up quickly!
Harvey Nichols description:
Tom Ford's Santal Blush is a mesmerising, spicy wood oriental. A textured fusion of creamy sandalwood and exotic eastern spices is enhanced with intoxicating florals and sumptuous woods to create soft, naked glamour with a mysterious spirit of modern earthiness. Its nude juice and blush colored packaging are as sensual as a beautifully contoured nude face.
I bought this in April for £135 but it is now online for £140.
