Beauty Spotlight: Tom Ford’s Fucking Fabulous Perfume

by Taylor Harris

What: This limited-edition fragrance is buttery, decadent, bold and luxurious. Its tonic a of almond bitter oil, tonka resinoid, orris accord, cashmeran blonde wood, leather accord, and clary sage oil. Meaning, it emits key notes of fresh lavender, bitter almond, vanilla, orris root, iris flower, and a whole lot of leather. The textural richness of the leather heart and the undertones of amber give the scent a warm, organic quality. Ultra-fine blonde woods add complexity and depth with a spicy, woodsy, yet creamy finish.

Plus, the fragrance comes encased in ssleek black leather atomizer, which would look pretty badass sitting on your vanity, expelitive-laden name and all. Of the title, John Demsey told Coveteur the origin story: “We were sitting in a meeting smelling the fragrance and Tom said, ‘This is fucking fabulous,’” said Demsey executive group president of the Estee Lauder Companies, which owns Tom Ford Beauty. “I said, ‘Yeah, it is fucking fabulous.’ He said, ‘Well, why not [call it] Fucking Fabulous?’ So we did.”

Who: Tom Ford (who is fucking fabulous).

Why: Ford not only knows how to create a great product, but how to launch it. The designer unveiled this scent during September’s New York Fashion Week with a huge bash immediately following his spring 2018 show. Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid were all in attendance, roaming the exquisitely-scented party space, lined in pink velvet and bathed in magenta lighting. And, of course, every editor, influencer, and celeb in attendance went home with a bottle of the scent, meaning the scent is something of an insider calling card.

Where: Saks Fifth Avenue, Tom Ford, and other major department stores.

How (much): $310 for 1.7 oz. or $804 for 8.5 oz.
