Tom Ford continues his fragrance obsession with Tom Ford Private Blend White Musk Collection. The quartet of musk-based scents ($180 for 50ml) sprang from Ford’s exploration of this deeply unique spice; White Suede combines the masculine-feminine tension of musk with soft leather; Jasmine Musk folds rich floral notes around a musky center; Urban Musk exposes the oriental tones of musk; and Musk Pure is the purest blend of floral and citrus scents. Ford says, “inhaling pure musk is a bit like inhaling nude skin,” which makes us wonder, how will we be able to control ourselves after a spritz of this savory potion?
