Does Tom Ford's Fragrance Have the White Stuff?

Does Tom Ford's Fragrance Have the White Stuff?

Here's a question about fragrance that's considerably more scandalous than most: Does Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather fragrance smell like cocaine? That's the latest hearsay, and New York magazine got to the bottom of the question:

Well, according to cognoscenti of that drug, yes, a bit. “That’s what everyone says,” admits a counterboy at the Ford store on Madison, who adds that one customer even bought a bottle because he thought it smelled like coke.

I'm a teetotaling child of the Just Say No era, so I have no interest in finding out what cocaine smells like. (Seriously, if I'm at a party and someone has it, I become an awkward wallflower and start praying for Nancy Reagan to swoop in and tell me that coke is a joke and that it's okay to feel so uncomfortable around people who are high as a kite.)

So really, I have no idea whether Tuscan Leather smells like the white stuff. The scent has notes of saffron, raspberry, thyme, olibanum, night-blooming jasmine, leather, black suede and amberwood—none of which are illegal South American exports. What do you think? Are people just buying into hype, or is it just a really good scent?

I've been around coke but not close enough to smell it, I was too scared i'd accidentally inhale or something. Coke addicts must be rejoicing.

I never understood coke to be a pleasant flavor/aroma. Hmmm. Fortunately, I am not very familiar with it anyway.

I have no clue what coke smells like and I never want to find out. If I liked this scent it wouldn't be because of the "cocaine" like scent. From the notes described I don't think I'll like it - I don't like a leather scent - Unless it's a shiney new white BMW,lol.

Never seen Coke or smelled it but I'm sure Tom Ford knows what he is doing... he is such a genius.

Well, if this is remotely true, then I predict record sales for this stuff where I live (Good 'ol 'Scarface' Miami, FL) Maybe i'll send a bottle to my crazy ex-boyfriend...but he's too strung out to get the joke... :)

even if this dreamy little scent smelled like cocaine i wouldn't know it! it took me awhile to figure at the marijuana smell (and it isn't pleasant) :\
