Morocco seems to be where it is at this summer for the fashion crowd (Yves Saint Laurent was aware of this ages ago). First we saw ethnic prints, vibrant citrus colors, and Ikat style weaving all over the Spring/Summer 2010 runways — from Dries Van Noten to Bottega Veneta. Now it seems Tom Ford wants in on the action with a new fragrance launched this month: Private Blend Bois Marocain.
Like the colors we saw on the runway (and the general climate of the exotic North African paradise), Bois Marocain’s fragrance is warm and vibrant. Its ingredients include thuya (a rare and precious wood native to the region), Madagascan black pepper, bergamot, and nutmeg. Spicy and so perfect for those sultry summer nights.
