Reviews of Fucking Fabulous

Fucking perfect name for a fucking fabulous fragrance. To my nose, it’s pretty fucking similar to Creed’s Silver Mountain Water; has the same sort of bright creamy sweetness to it, but with more masculine elements added in, like the leather and almond oil. Fucking versatile as well; I could see myself wearing this casually, formally, and virtually anywhere in between, but I'll definitely be saving this one for more special occasions, as it is very unique and attractive, not to mention, fucking expensive.

As a side note, I have to point out how amusing it is to see these ultra sensitive adults in our society clutching their pearls and shielding their eyes from from this horrible, horrible word that Mr Ford used to name this fragrance. Neiman Marcus here in Houston had the bottle hidden behind the counter with the "fucking" name covered with a sticker (had to ask for it specifically to sample it). I bought a bottle of Italian Cypress (a steal!) off a guy who I'm pretty sure was offloading his Tom Ford collection in protest. You’d think the word has some sort of magical powers. I see it as fucking brilliant marketing that’s probably selling loads more bottles than it would have with a more generic name. I would never have even considered buying this bottle at this price point (even at the discounted price I got it for). But, all the attention and controversy the name brought made it a must-have collector’s item for me. And it helps that really does smell fucking fabulous!

Certainly the name alone gave it plenty of attention around the time of its release, but upon finally smelling in the fall and acquiring it later, Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous is truly a provocative scent, a most unusual combination that is nonetheless blended well enough to sell it as something off the beaten path.

The rather dominant, sharp/sweet blend of tonka and almond is modified by a touch of leather, relatively dirty and almost spicy clary sage, and a hint of orris, keeping some powderiness beyond the tonka and almond alone.

Performance is good, certainly not in the vicinity of the beasts of the Private Blend line but nonetheless strong on projection for a few hours before mellowing out but still overall having very good longevity on skin.

In summary, I regard Fucking Fabulous as quirky and unique. There's nothing quite like it in the Private Blend collection, and I cannot think of another fragrance that it mimics. I frankly would recommend it more than others to be sampled first prior to buying since, given its idiosyncrasies, I feel I hardly do it justice by trying to explain the notes.

At the higher Tom Ford Private Blend price point of $310 for 50ml, this is a tough sell, but surely there are deals to be had on the side, and arguably the retail price seemed more satiable when this fragrance was advertised as a boutique-only limited edition.

Yuck! This is foul! I tried it 3 separate times, and got something different 2 times. The second 2 times I got the same thing.. so here's what I'm going with. Strawberries, almond, tons of tonka, and a weird chemical smelling plastic. Although from a distance I don't get the plastic much, but from up close it's highly noticeable. There's a lot of different facets, but overall it's a type of gourmand scent. The dry down is much different, and I get more of a ginger smell.

I feel that the leather note clashes with the gourmand notes too much, and that's what's making it unenjoyable for me.

Imagine Black XS, mixed with John Varvatos, mixed with Guerlain Ideal EDT, mixed with 5 O'clock Au Gingembre.. and that's basically what this is.

TF Fucking Fabulous = Nasomatto Black Afgano.

Basically a hot toffee smell - plus it's a bit funky in a bad direction - a little man dirt/sweat there.
This is why I was disappointed in BA also - same problem here.

I was very excited to try this as I love Oud Wood, but...

Absolutely gross smelling, but genius and well composed. Tom ford knows how to market, that’s for sure. I’ll likely never wear this, but will always have a bottle in my collection.

Based on in the name alone, I expected some sort of loud fruity floral mess, so I was quite surprised by Fabulous's subtle charm.

At its core, FF is a luscious pudding of iris, lightly animalic 70's soapy musk, vaguely woodsy vanilla, and rich ambrox. It's topped with leathery almond at first, quite sweet and with the iris in the forefront. Given time, the almond fades to clary sage, though it's more of an indirect green aspect to the smell than anything specifically "sage". The whole thing slides from sweet to savory over the course of the day, as the salty ambrox eventually takes the lead away from the iris.

I've really enjoyed wearing this and would consider a full bottle. It's a clever take on iris, but may also appeal to fans of Chanel's Cuir de Russie, in that the almond and ambrox make FF smell like a very modern take on a classic iris/musk perfume.
