Soleil Blanc by Tom Ford is your ticket to smelling like you’ve been living on a private island. 

I’ll be honest. At first, I wasn’t so sure. My initial reaction was "it smells like a Pina Colada" which yes, it does, but it smells like the sexiest Pina Colada you have ever had!

Soleil Blanc is floral, sweet and incredibly sensual. It soft, feminine and gentle, but at the same time incredibly sophisticated, grown up and sexy, especially once the sandalwood and amber settles in. The fragrance can be worn day and night, but it is best experienced on a warm balmy night. This is an ultimate “date night fragrance”.

 Described by the brand “remote private islands where summer lasts all year and one day seamlessly blends into the next inspire Soleil Blanc, an addictive solar floral amber alive with seductive refinement and refreshing decadence.”

As for the notes, the coconut is indeed the star of the show but it is married to the citrus notes and white flowers, and it in a way it plays off on each others strengths. The coconut is sweet and milky but extremely luxurious. The light notes and freshness makes it our No.1 fragrance for summer.

As for the price tag, yes, Tom Ford fragrances are expensive but it’s a matter of personal preferences. The sillage is great, you only need a spritz or two to make it last for 4-5 hours.

At the end, the Soleil Blanc will indeed tilt some heads!
