Lost Cherry is one of the newest fragrances in Tom Ford’s Private Blend collection. In a short amount of time, it has already gained a cult following. The warm, spicy scent has a sweetness like candy, but the tobacco notes give it a more complex, grown-up smell. It’s not at all childish. The price is also not right for young people, of course. At about $350 a bottle, Tom Ford’s alluring Lost Cherry scent is a pricey way to fall in love, and because the scent is so complex and nuanced, finding a Lost Cherry perfume dupe that doesn’t smell cheap or too fruity is definitely not an easy task.
The top notes of the sweet scent are Black Cherry Accord, Bitter Almond, Griotte Sirup Scenttrek®, and Rose Absolute Orpur®. Tom Ford describes the scent in a poetic way: “Lost Cherry is strong and never-ending, like a ripe fruit waiting to be eaten.” Notes of Cherry Liqueur and a touch of bitter almond drip into its heart, giving it a candy-like shine. “
I couldn’t have put it better myself, to be honest. My favorite Tom Ford scent has always been and will always be Tobacco Vanille Eau de Parfum, but I recently ordered a sample bottle of Lost Cherry from a trusted and top-rated seller on eBay to see if it could be imitated. It’s definitely sweet, but instead of giving you a headache, it makes you feel sultry. This is partly because the sandalwood notes balance out the sweetness in a nice way. If I had to say it in three words.
