I don't dislike many fragrances. From gourmand to floral to citrus to fruity to fresh aquatic, there are many fragrances in all categories that I own and enjoy. I purchased a sample vial of Tom Ford's Champaca Absolute and was really disgusted. This is a pungent, acutely syrupy sweet fragrance. I've never smelled champaca flowers in person, but if they smell like Tom …Read more

This has a problem of arrested development on my skin. No matter how much I spray, it is arrested at a preliminary stage where it is about to bloom and that is it. I also get cognac-sweet top notes but the rest is just a super humid tropical evening without much in particular. Indeed Champaca Abcolute has such a humid, moist vibe on my skin that it wouldn't surprise me if I started seeing …Read more

Its an alright fragrance. At first whiff this was gorgeous and I had to have it but the drydown was not something that I liked as much. Too floral for me. No sale for me.

I went to Neimans in search of a new fragrance. I was soon pulled over to the Tom Ford counter. I had seen and heard of the fragrance line but never really bothered to try. I told the sales person that I preferred floral/oriental fragrances and he had me smell quite a few. I tried White Musk (my least favorite), Oud Wood (too masculine), Japon Noir, Noir de Noir (not too bad), but none of …Read more

A wonderful, bitchy-pill white floral that completely disagreed with me.

<P>

I first smelled Champaca Absolute a couple of months ago, during a time when I was considering a purchase of Chanel Beige. Champaca A. stopped me in my tracks--it was a wow, an arresting mixture of high-end spirits, kapow florals, and stiletto woods. I didn't buy Beige because of it …

How lovely! TF Champaca Absolute opens with blast of champaca-scented rice in a container made of fresh-cut bamboo-stem, along with sweet ripe plum. I am a big fan of white florals and I love the real champaca flower. The name is misleading as champaca is never dominant but lingers to the end.

Comparision between TF Champaca Absolute and Ormande Jayne Champaca: OJ is …

I may not be a "top reviewer", but I do know my perfumes, and TF Champaca Absolute by **no means** deserves any kind of low rating or to be compared to Ormonde Jayne et al. Tom Ford went to the most ancient of gardens, where perfumiers have been harvesting for thousands of years, and has captured not just the scent, but the **soul** of champaca (hence the "absolute.") If it …Read more

Why is Tom Ford tending the same flower beds and clipping the same blooms as Ormonde Jayne? OJ's Champaca is one of my favourite scents but this is nowhere near as good. I agree that Ford seems to be just rushing stuff out these days.

I have a very high tolerance for all kinds of perfumes. Even fragrances that I don't particularly care for, I can usually understand why they might appeal to someone. Not the case with this swill. I'm actually offended that Tom Ford continues to churn out these substandard, outrageously expensive, artificial fragrances and that the high end deparment stores and magazines seem to be …Read more

Acck! I gave this Tom Ford a hour on my skin. It was really perfume intensity and smelled like putrid fruit. Not like a big white floral that I was hoping for. It's got a cheap propellent smell to it as well. The drydown reminds me of some Victoria Secret but I just can't place it. Maybe one of the original secrets... 66 perhaps. The next day I could still smell it on my skin. It …Read more
