All eyes are on Georgia right now because they are all of a sudden a swing state which could determine the elections, and of course, it made me think of what they are most known for – the peach. And I realized I had a sample of Tom Ford’s ‘Bitter Peach,’ so it is as good a time as any to spritz it.
I like the idea of a peach fragrance – juicy, stone-y. And you will definitely get a peach when you first sniff this scent. And yes, I kind of did like that initial burst.
But then, expectations. I admit I was kind of expecting this to be a citrus, but it turned dark right away, with not4s of rum and cognac. This is definitely not a summer scent. The peach note becomes a little plastic-y after – I am reminded of the smell of a plastic doll. Do I like it? I don’t totally dislike it is my answer, and it is definitely weird. I want to get to know it better, to wear it maybe on cold cold nights. But for $300?
