In the world of luxury fragrance there’s expensive perfume, and then there’s expensive perfume.
Not for the faint of heart, Tom Ford’s newest jumbo-sized bottle of fragrance titled ‘F***ing Fabulous' falls into the latter category, and it recently hit shelves at Sephora. For a 250ml bottle, shoppers can expect to shell out $1,025 of their hard-earned cash.
According to the website, the scent is a blend of fresh lavender, bitter almond, vanilla, orris root, iris flower and leather. Described by the designer himself as “a decadent, oriental leather with an intoxicating grip, it evokes the private exchanges where fantasies come true. It’s undeniably the most straightforward name for such a beautiful scent.”
With polarizing reviews, customers have taken to Sephora’s website to share their opinions on this cheeky scent.
“The name says it all. It’s a rich, deep, intoxicating scent that sort of defies description,” shared one five-star reviewer. “There’s a little sweet, there’s a little bitter and it comes together into something different than any other fragrance I’ve used.”
“Smells amazing, really good combination of notes, BUT the price point, honey no! I need them to make one of those body sprays with this, those are amazing and well worth the money,” wrote another.
Smaller sizes of the perfume are available starting at $92, but if you’re looking to snap up a bottle you’ll have to add your name to the waitlist, as they’re currently sold out.
During the holiday season, fragrance is always a popular choice when it comes to gift giving, so if you’re looking to purchase an affordable yet unique scent, opt for one of these scents instead of Tom Ford’s latest $1,000 bottle.
