Ébène Fumé Tom Ford for women and men is a rich, amber, woody fragrance released in 2021. The scent is meant to be unisex, but many women consider it too dark and woody to wear outside of autumn and winter.
The main accords of Tom Ford Ébène Fumé are amber, balsamic wood, smokey and fresh spices with a warm leather overtone. The fragrance was created for the Private Blend collection. Tom Ford fans consider this to carry an unmistakable signature of his brand as it smells intimately familiar to other fragrances in the range.
While it gives an opulent and heady first impression, the Palo Santo wood essence wins through with its deep, dark and smokey edge. The overall feel is very grounding, with its warm and woody notes enveloping you in a calm embrace.
A good Tom Ford Ébène Fumé dupe will have deep woody tones blended with fresh herbs, resins and exotic flowers. It should be earthy and grounding while retaining a fresh edge of florals and pine needles to elevate the senses
High Notes: Incense, Palo Santo, Black Pepper, Violet Leaf
Mid Notes: Leather, Labdanum, Cade oil, Papyrus, Rose
Base Notes: resins, ebony tree, Guaiac Wood

Tom Ford set out to create an experience where mindfulness meets opulence, and he has achieved this in Ébène Fumé. Released in 2021, Ébène Fumé is a careful balance of calm and quiet with rich, grounding wood and leather, blended with a mesmerising combination of sharp resins and exotic blooms.
You can detect a hint of fresh herbs on the nose that gives the opening a level of exhilaration, but the rich and warm woody tones quickly flood in to ground the scent and bring your feet back down to earth.
Peppery notes, pine needles and soft violet leaf extract tickle the senses. Still, an unmistakable Tom Ford signature tone of smokey woods and leather dominates the Ébène Fumé experience.
The copycat one is excellent, although that's prety much the only direct comparison on the market right now.
Copycat Fragrances are masters of creating almost identical replica scents. Fume by Copycat is no exception. They have expertly blended fresh notes of pineapple, blackcurrant, and bergamot to recreate a bold and sophisticated copy of the Tom Ford classic. Like Ébène Fumé, the Copycat version has just the right balance of warm and calming notes to appeal to both men and women.
Our testers loved picking out the warm amber and smokey woods of the Fume dupe that are so reminiscent of Ébène Fumé. The team at Copycat did an outstanding job of emulating the notes found in the original fragrance, and this should be your number-one choice when looking for a close replica of the real thing for a fraction of the price.
Copycat Fume has a delicate balance of ebony and guaiac base notes, which delivers a rich, dark and sensual experience and adds an air of mystery to the lingering scent. Our testers found Fume to be very long-lasting, with pleasant traces of warm amber, wood, and leather still present the morning after a night out on the town.
The original Tom Ford Ébène Fumé is very much a fragrance for cooler autumn and winter evenings. However, Fume by Copycat has a warmth and calm about it that would be perfectly acceptable for a day in the office.
Appealing to both men and women, Fume by Copycat offers a more cost-effect alternative to the real thing. If you love the Tom Ford brand, then this replica scent should be gracing your bathroom cabinet and act as your go-to everyday spray of inspiration.

190 By The Essence Vault contains similar notes to those found in Tom Ford Ébène Fumé despite being created as a dupe of Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford. The Essence Vault doesn't sell a dupe of Ébène Fumé, but our testers thought 190 was the next best thing.
With fresh top and mid notes of herbs and exotic florals and spices, it has a similar refreshing opening as Ébène Fumé, and just like the original, 190 mellows down with base notes of Leather, Suede, Amber and Wood.
Ébène Fumé has heavy leather, wood and amber overtones and 190 by The Essence Vault has a similar woody, forest-floor earthiness that grounds and calms the senses. If you love the smokey leather tones of Tom Ford fragrances, then you will love 190 by The Essence Vault.
Our testers gave 190 by The Essence Vault 3 out of 5 for authenticity, but particularly liked the relaxing, light and smokey edge of 190 and found it had remarkable longevity. At just £26.95 for 100ml, this is a cost-effective alternative for lovers of Ébène Fumé.
