Tom Ford Costa Azzurra

Today was another adventure with Tom Ford's most recent summer editions launched in 2014.  Costa Azzurra by Tom Ford is a Woody Aromatic fragrance for women and men.  This one was middle of the road at best.  As usual with Tom Ford the presentation is flawless, but that's where the mystery ends.  Top notes are seaweed, driftwood, agarwood (oud), ambrette (musk mallow), celery seeds and cardamom; middle notes are juniper, myrtle, lavender, lemon, yellow mandarin and artemisia; base notes are mastic or lentisque, olibanum, incense, vanilla, vetiver and oak.  A very solid construction, but utterly uninspiring.  As with all fragrances I look at what I'm getting then the price point and honestly for the price there are far better options.
