Key Notes of Champaca Absolute

What Does Champaca Absolute Smell Like

At first sniff, Champaca Absolute by Tom Ford introduces itself with a heady fusion of cognac and Tokaji wine, a dual punch of intoxicating warmth. This booziness is swiftly lightened by the lively, citrusy essence of bergamot and the subtly sweet, fruity nuances of davana. A hint of crisp green notes can also be detected, adding a touch of freshness to the mix.

As the scent unfolds, it further showcases a floral heart - the starring role goes to the champaca flower, its rich, exotic scent radiating prominently. This is beautifully complemented by the sensual femininity of orchid and a softer, sweetly aromatic whiff of broom flowers. There's an undercurrent of jasmine, which, while not as dominant, brings forth a light, floral sweetness. The faintest whisper of violet rounds out the bouquet, adding a slightly powdery touch.

Once settled, the base reveals a rich and creamy scent of marron glacé, evoking a warming, cozy feeling. There's the unmistakable warmth and sweetness of vanilla that blends seamlessly with the rich, resinous, and slightly sweet scent of amber. The fragrance finishes on a woody note, the smooth aroma of sandalwood adding a sophisticated depth to the overall scent profile.

Review of Champaca Absolute

Champaca Absolute by Tom Ford is a potent, floral-centric perfume that resonates with a majority of mature men and women. Its main allure is its robust champaca flower note, accompanied by a warm woody undertone that is mildly sweet, yet subtly spicy. This creates a lingering, powdery aroma with a touch of fruity freshness. The perfume has a strong presence, making it ideal for spring and fall seasons when the weather is transitioning, and the scent can be fully appreciated. It particularly shines during night outings or relaxed evening gatherings. It offers a distinctive, appealing scent for those who enjoy bold, floral fragrances with a comforting woodiness, without it being overbearing. However, its wearability for daily or business occasions might not suit everyone. Overall, Champaca Absolute is a confident, mature scent that will demand attention whenever it is worn.
