The crossing of the palm

The lavender boom is showing no sign of subsiding, as evidenced by the news that Tom Ford’s Lavender Palm has made its way across the pond.

Originally only stocked in his Beverly Hills store, Tom Ford’s fragrance boasts key ingredients of palm leaf accord and two types of lavender, and will be available at all Tom Ford Private Blend counters in Britain from this week.
