Tom Ford Private Blend Splits Many of you who have visited my Tom Ford Private Label/CREED decant threads have asked about larger splits as well.  Having run out of my last few TFPB scents to offer in decant sizes, now is the time to put all of those inquiries together!  Thus, I am organizing splits of the TFPB fragrances listed below.   The splits will work differently from the TFPB/CREED decants that I offer elsewhere and will operate on a first-come-first-served sign...
A lot of brushing and, if you so desire, a minute amount of wax after said brushing, followed by more brushing.

 Many Alden fans use only a minute amount of wax every so often to finish polishing their Alden shell cordovan. The use of wax on Alden cordovan is often attributed to the unique finishing that Alden applies to its cordovan (as well as to Alden's own directions).  On other cordovan, e.g., Carmina, cordovan-specific cream is generally fine and you could use a bit of wax every so often.  Regardless, less is always more when it comes to cordovan care.
 Stay tuned - there should be some new content coming.
