Tom Ford unveils a $500 perfume! See it here!

Tom Ford has unveiled a pricy new fragrance, called Jardin Noir. The 8.4 oz bottle is priced at $495!! The fragrance will come in four individual scents that the 50-year-old designer say represent the unique “darker” and “thrilling” sides of each rose, lily, narcissus and hyacinth.

The designer, who carved a name for himself within the fashion industry when as the creative director of Gucci, said he was after a very different scent his previous perfumes.

Clearly, however, obsessed with the whiff of fresh blooms, past scents have included Black Orchid and Violet Blonde.

Mr Ford, who is also a film director and created the Oscar-winning movie A Single Man starring Colin Firth, told The New York Times: ‘When you showcase their [the flower’s] darker and less innocent aspects, flowers can become so thrilling and beautiful, they could almost ruin you.

‘That was the sensation I was after.’

The four scents are named Cafè Rose, Lys Fume, Jonquille de Nuit, and Ombre de Hyacinth.

The fragrance works out to be about the same price as a T-shirt from the designer’s ready-to-wear collection.

I guess if you have the money to spend on it, then go for it. I’m sure Tom Ford isn’t concerned with people like you and I who would never pay $500 for a bottle of perfume! I am, however, totally interested to smell it. I wonder how much it would cost for a whiff?
