We at VIOLET GREY are devoted fans of Tom Ford for a multitude of reasons, chief among them being his ability to create a mood. Every product, from cult-favorite lipsticks to the celebrated fragrances, conjures a special occasion and a unique, glamorous setting. When the brand launched the Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil, our VIOLET STAFFERS jumped at the chance to spritz ourselves to glimmer and glow about the office. 


Between the floral, earthy fragrance and silky texture of the oil, we were mentally transported to chic beach vacations complete with floaty sarongs and crisp cocktails. VIOLET STAFFERS found themselves reaching for the Body Oil for all types of affairs, whether lying by the pool or heading out for dinner. Knowing we couldn’t keep the fun all to ourselves, we quickly sent it to our Committee of Industry Experts to see if this body oil made them feel just as glowy and seductive as we did. 

“Silky hydration, subtle sun-kissed shimmer, and a summery scent—’a solar, sexy amber,’ according to one Mr. Ford—all in one luxe, show-it-off-to-your-friends bottle. Really, what else do you need to know?!” –  SARAH BROWN, Executive Director Of  VIOLET LAB 

“Gorgeous on-camera (hello red carpet!) and off, I especially love the way the soft golden shimmer creates a beachy glow on even the fairest of complexions. And the scent... sultry, sexy, lingers on the skin all night.” – ROBIN BLACK, Makeup Artist

“This body oil has been a staple in my kit for years, but has also become a mainstay in my personal curation. A beautifully lightweight texture, quick dry down, and subtle shimmer makes this a grown-up version of what I loved as an early aughts teen - plus the evocative scent of Soleil Blanc makes it feel like summer all year long.” – ASHLEY CORNETT, VIOLET GREY Beauty Editor


Our testers loved the body oil not just for its sultry fragrance and coy shimmer, but they also were impressed with the way it conditioned their skin. Given its many benefits, indulgent texture, beautiful vanity appeal, and ability to act as a vacation in a bottle, Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil is officially VIOLET CODE APPROVED and an exciting addition to THE SHELVES. 


The VIOLET CODE is a process and set of standards by which VIOLET GREY’s Committee of Industry Experts separate hero products from the tens of thousands of options available to you on the market. The result is a curation that is truly the best in beauty from those who know best.
