Tommi Sooni perfumes possess an elegance unlike any other new niche brand that I know of. These perfumes are so tastefully designed and carry this admirable dignified property that I can’t describe but I can guarantee that you can smell it.
Tommi Sooni I opens with an herbaceous, aldehydic citrus blast. I get musky bay leaf with bitter citrus leaves that remind me of fresh kaffir lime leaves. I get a mix of rose and bracing evergreens. It reminds me of a mix of man and woman. It’s like a vintage 70’s Chanel mixed with a man’s aftershave. The narcissus is waxy and sweet and is happily married to the smoky, slightly spicy tobacco with resins. The dry-down is old-fashioned with moss and benzoin, rich and elegant.
Tommi Sooni I has a refined, old-school feel. It is unlike what other niche brands are launching. This line is about timeless elegance. This line is a class act. I think Tommi Sooni I would make an awesome “everyday” fragrance for man that goes to work in a suit. I also think it is a delightful “everyday” perfume for a classy broad or a woman that loves vintage perfumes. As you know, vintage feminines are quite masculine by today’s standards.
Notes listed include lime, lemon leaves, bergamot, bay laurel, Jonquil, rose, Cuban cigar accord, Huon pine, sandalwood, benzoin and oakmoss.
Give Tommi Sooni I a try if you like vintage fragrances from the 60’s-late 70’s. Try if you like Chanel Pour Monsieur, Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet, MCMC Maine, and/or YSL Y. I view Eau de Tommi Sooni I as unisex, a mix of old-school feminine and masculine perfumes. I’m calling it the Bogart and Bacall of perfumes.
I find that this fragrance has above average projection and longevity for an EDT.
The 3.4 oz bottle retails for $165 at LuckyScent.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A nuptial blend of masculine and feminine notes that results in a timeless, elegant vintage feeling perfume. It’s like the Bogart and Bacall of perfumes.
