I’ve been nipping in and out of central London a lot over the past couple of weeks and if I possibly can, I stop at a department store for a spritz of Lost Cherry. It’s a truly sumptuous fragrance that I keep thinking about long after the spritz has worn off, but I don’t trust myself not to just be having a fleeting passion with this perfume – I’m not sure I’m in it for the long haul enough to drop over £200 on a bottle.
There’s so much cherry in this – the notes are fresh cherry over cherry brandy which in turn is over woody notes. The sandalwood comes to the fore after the juice has settled on the skin for a while but the initial blast is one of those that makes you stand still and inhale because it’s just so delicious! Lost Cherry is warmly sweet without being cloying, has floral hints (rose and jasmine) but is overwhelmingly cherry-ish. For such a big fragrance, the last isn’t amazing – I can see that little bottle disappearing in no time at all not least because it’s exceptionally more-ish. The note that I’m left with after the cherry and sandalwood have gone is jasmine so I have no complaints at all there – if I’m still thinking about it in a couple of weeks, I might have to give in.

Such a trashy name…. Seems to be the way with TF fragrances at the moment. For the money it should last for ages too. Maybe his next one scents should be Morning After, Who Are You, Darling You Were Fabulous, Ego Has Landed, Hot Air….etc
Oooh another provocative named fragrance from Tom Ford and sad that the longevity isn’t great, because it sounds absolutely lovely, though not for £200!
I’ve never seen all the fuss when it comes down to Tom Ford fragrances. My brother bought my mom one for Christmas a few years back and she was obsessed!
This one sounds delicious however! I love cherry scents so much, they’re yummy and refreshing. However when I read the price tag my heart kind of sunk a little. No perfume should cost this much. 🙁
