Tom Ford's new perfume doesn't need to go the extra mile to catch your attention. The strategically placed bold red stripe on the matte black bottle, which serves to censor a curse word, is enough to make anyone do a double-take.
Hitting the shelves this August 11, F Fabulous is the controversial name behind the luxury brand's decadent private blend. It was introduced last September before the luxury brand's Spring/Summer 2018 presentation, packaged along with the invite sent to fashion insiders.Vibrant, rich, luscious, and warm, the scent is said to evoke hushed conversations and a peek into exclusivity, perhaps like finally getting your name on Tom's elusive show guestlist.
Opening with clary sage and lavender, the scent introduces a bright note, but it breaks and leaks with the richness of bitter almond, vanilla, and orris root. Let it stick around long enough to get a whiff of tonka bean, amber, and leather.

Its polarizing name aside, the refreshing yet powerful promise of the bottle makes it worth at least a sniff. You only need a few spritzes to let the world know that you, too, are f—ing fabulous.
