If Tom Ford discontinued Plum Japonais then isnt this technically a unique fragrance? Why on Earth this was DCd who knows but such a fantastic modern Oriental style fragrance. Just a wonderful pitted fruit accord to give delicate sweetness to spice, wood, and ambers. Smells so close to the original, if there's a difference I couldn't care less. This is a perfect fall or cool spring evening fragrance.
I have never owned the original TF plum Japonais. I will say that this fragrance done by AF is absolutely incredible. The plum is done so well. I get a nice plum throughout the fragrance and the dry down is amazing. I would definitely recommend buying this one.
On first spray, I wasn't a fan-- this seemed like an incense bomb and I got no plum at all. Then, of course, a couple hours later, I couldn't stop catching whiffs of this lovely dark spicy fruit, and I was hooked. If I asked my dad, he'd say this smells too "old" for me (I'm in my late 20s), so maybe I'll save buying a bottle for the future, when hopefully the 30mLs will be back in stock.
I'm so glad I discovered this one. I don't wear it a lot, it's not what I would consider a daily wearer. Spicy, Woody, fruity. PERFECTLY unisex. If you smelled it on a woman you would swear it was feminine and you smell it on a man and you'd swear it's masculine.
Pretty decent performance.
Have never smelled anything like this before. Gourgeous and sensual.
Will repurchase this beautiful plum-oud.
