    Default Tom Ford Fucking Fabolous.. whats do you guys think?

    I put on a little from a sample vibe and in this cold in New York weather its projecting like a beast. However it smells very unusual for a fragrance. Almost like some sort of medicial ointment, I cant tell if I like it.

    I like the bitter almond opening, but it dries down like Amouage Journey Man: saffron and leather, which I don't mind so much.

    It’s excellent. Apparently not fecal enough for the basenotes crowd!

    I like it it just fine.

    Somehow I found this to be a must-have in my collection.

    Not because of the puerile name. But because it does something that I didn't expect - it made me like tonka bean. That was quite the accomplishment - I tend to tolerate tonka bean, not particularly enjoy it.

    But it seems to be a rather polarizing scent here. I blame the marketing mostly. But it isn't an opulent scent like the name would almost make you think... perhaps that's the prob?

    I've yet to sample this, but understand about tonka. I've always detested tonka but the one fragrance that made me be okay with it was Hermes Vetiver Tonka and later on Penhaligon's the tragedy of lord george.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I don't hate it but at the same time I find it unenjoyable.
    oh look, I have a signature

    Quite unusual for a fragrance, and not the crowd pleasing sweet bomb I was expecting from the name. Having said that, it's just not particularly good - strange aniseed / hand cream smell. However, it's not bad and perfectly wearable - but at that price?!

    Has absolutely nothing to do with it's name, a pass for me too.

    Surprisingly ordinary.
    So many better things out there at all price points.
    They wasted an impactful if controversial name.

    Quite boring and instantly forgettable if not for the controversial name.

    if it were called Tom Ford "Fabulous", it would be quite popular as it is a very pleasant and enjoyable fragrance.

    but the controversy with the actual name doomed this thing from the start. it could never live up to the hype and controversy that the name imbued on it. so now it's popular to say things like "i found it fucking boring" and think you're both super funny and above it all.

    in short - lower you expectations and you might be pleasantly surprised.

    Very simple fragrance but I like it enough to get a decant and a couple kiosk samples. Def not worth anywhere near retail. Starting to see it at TL and TV prices but not even worth it at that discount.

    I really like it. Take the name away, and just concentrate on the fragrance, imo it's pretty damn good.
    Current Top 10:
    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
    Creed Royal Oud
    Armani Prive Myrrhe Imperiale
    Amouage Jubilation XXV
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    Tom Ford Amber Absolute
    MDCI Invasion Barbare
    Amouage Interlude Man
    Tom Ford Plum Japonais

    I quite liked it even though it's not my usual type of fragrance.

    In that case maybe it ought to have been named Reasonably Fucking Pleasant

    When the general consensus is that the fragrance is mediocre and overpriced then throwaway comments based on it's juvenile name are to be expected and not indicative that anyone believes themselves to be either "super funny " or " above it all. " .

    I tried FF when it was released a few months ago. It was not at all compelling. At the same time I whiffed Tobacco Oud Extreme and left the counter with a 5ml sample that I enjoyed but ultimately felt it was not full bottle worthy.

    I actually enjoyed it but its not full bottle worthy. Worth a sample if you want to smell something different

    He nailed it indeed.
    Some people take other people’s opinion or acts like a mirror of how they conduce their own acts and opinions and so they get confused and lost. We all know most people here don’t consider just a name/perfumer or brand alone for judging a fragrance, or what would we say about a lot of Etat Libre D’Orange fragrances? Such immature attitudes are reserved to people equally immature and don’t reflect the community usual thoughts.
