With the launch of an exclusive, limited-edition fragrance, Tom Ford presents his sublime new version of a classic woody men’s scent. Fusing intriguing gourmand essences with a selection of pure, hand-distilled ingredients that have been prized by artisanal parfumiers for centuries, Tom Ford for Men Extreme surrounds the senses with a radiant, and palpably succulent, rich blend.
A finely curated collection of herbs and spices such as Thai basil, chamomile, and cinnamon offers the first invitation to inhale—part spicy, part soft. Then the ripe, rounded notes of Brogiotto black fig, blended with a hint of violet and plum, create the heart of the scent, which is warmed with sandalwood and cedar. Finally, a rich mix of masculine accords including leather, aged patchouli, and Japanese incense shroud this epicurean blend in lasting layers of sensuality.

A bouquet of exotic, epicurean notes such as Thai basil, coriander, chamomile, cardamom, cinnamon bark, Persian lemon, and Cistus open the fragrance with a spicy-soft-citrus-tart burst.
the textured and complex heart is structured from black plum, Parma violet, cedarwood atlas and sandalwood, enlivened with a pinch of saffron and thyme, then wrapped around the heady, “slow food” note of Italian Brogiotto black fig. extremely aromatic, known for its sweet, rich flavor, the Brogiotto black fig is a purple-and-black colored fruit grown in northern Italy.
Pure essences, distilled directly from the highest-grade raw sources, such as rum, Haitian Vetyver, caramel, vanilla, black truffle, and fir balsam, are blended with a supple leather accord and the finest variety of amber. Then, two connoisseur-level ingredients complete the base: patchouli vieux, a vintage essential oil that is aged for over five years in oak barrels until it develops a rich and velvety personality, and shoyeido incense, which is hand-blended by master craftsmen in Japan from natural materials and considered the finest incense in the world.
