Fucking Fabulous by Tom Ford

Published by The Perfume Times on

This week’s perfume review has a little shock, double take, and a, “What does it say?” when noticing Tom Ford’s recent 2018 launch. Albeit controversial, its name does grab your attention and it definitely has caused quite a bit of buzz. Remember the phrase, “Good publicity. Bad publicity. It’s all publicity.” Well, that certainly applies here because many people are discussing it.

His new fragrance is called “Fucking Fabulous.” Some will agree the name is tasteless. Others will agree the name is shameless. Some will agree the name is even egotistical. But most should agree the scent is Ford’s newest masterpiece.

Fucking Fabulous Review

Bottle

As with the other bottles of Tom Ford’s Private Blend collection, this bottle is simplistically square with a round knob top. Also simple, is the label that adorns the front. (This reminds us of the Gucci Bloom collection’s simple square label which comes off as not much more than a sticker.) The all-black container has an unusual option of just two sizes, 1.7 ounces (50mL) and 8.5 ounces (250mL).

Retail

The modest 1.7 oz. has a suggested price of $320 ($188.24/ounce), while the rare, large 8.5 oz. retails for $804 (and a considerably less $94.59/ounce). You can purchase each directly from Tom Ford online and in-store, as well as several high-end department stores.

Packaging

The box matches the bottle to a tee. A square, black box with a white label…just large enough to fit its bottle.  

Colors

Black and white are used because they are genderless, and this is another unisex fragrance to hit the market. In addition, we believe the idea is actually “colorless” as in no rose pink nor any blue masculine fresh.

Quality

Eau de Parfum (EDP)

Notes

A courageous blend of bitter almond oil, leather, tonka bean, orris root, cashmeran, and clary sage oil. It’s not spicy, but rather earthy. It’s not woody, but rather oriental. It’s a special blend of expression…not only in name, but more so in scent.

Although this was introduced in mid-2018, we think this scent is perfect for the upcoming fall season. Just as we will pack up our light summer colors for more earthy browns, distinctive greys, darker reds, deeper greens, and classy black attire, so too will this scent compliment our wardrobe. However we dress, we want to look luxurious…and smell f*cking fabulous!
