Tom Ford's Bois Marocain exclusively at SelfridgesTuesday, 16 June 2009
Department store Selfridges, is exclusively launching the Tom Ford Private Blend Collection Bois Marocain until January 2010. The new scent will be offered in the original private blend packaging inspired by the dark brown glass colouring of the apothecary bottles used in perfume laboratories. The 50ml flacon has the sleek architectural look of a chess piece; the 250ml decanter is carved with great craftsmanship.
The top notes are a mélange of Madagascan black pepper, cypress and bergamot balencing its darkly refined opulence. Baies rose orpur delivers a spiced floral vibrancy, while the thuya smooths the heart of the fragrance. Nutmeg and davana enhance the ambrosial sensuality of the scent. An enduring base blends exotic facets of incense, patchouli and earthy vetiver to leave a lasting impression.
Selfridges was founded by American entrepreneur Gordon Selfridge in 1909 and run by him until he retired in 1940 and took on the role of President. In the year ended 31 January 2008, Selfridges’ sales rose by 10 per cent to £655 million and profit grew by 30 per cent to £84.1 million.
