The spice routes of Asia inspired the new Tom Ford Atelier d’Orient fragrances (www.tomford.com), which are part of the company’s Private Blend range. Each of the four eaux de parfum is priced at $210 for an 8.45-ounce flacon. The fragrances are complex and layered, and two of them—Rive d’Ambre and Fleur de Chine—have been created for both men and women to wear. Rive d’Ambre combines warm notes of amber and cedarwood with the scents of bergamot and other citrus fruits. Fleur de Chine features the scents of magnolia, tea, and clementine.
