Beauty reinvigoration with Tom Ford

Beauty reinvigoration with Tom Ford

Slow mornings, long afternoons, tall Aperols and short dresses are just some of the things enamouring us this holiday hiatus. As we embrace the joyful banalities and lazy luxuries of this purgatory between Christmas and the freshly-minted New Year, self-indulgence and self-cultivation are near inevitable. In the House of Harrolds, nobody seems more synonymous with party-season beauty and fragrance than Tom Ford.

TF’s iconic perfumes are like potent summer cocktails, with each expertly-crafted elixir holding with it an intangible promise of memories, nostalgia and a delicious sense-of-self. Then, with the final lacquer of a TF lipstick comes a more visible, tinted iteration of your mood for what the night has in store. Go bright and brave for late-night liberation or barely-there and blushing at the next intimate rendezvous.

To navigate the wonderful vault of TF as we hit the town sequin-clad this season, Gemma of the Tom Ford beauty team teaches us the possibilities of beauty in those brilliant, brimming, boisterous bridging months of one year to the next.

Each of these fragrances has been thoughtfully created by Mr Ford and are as individual as the fragrance connoisseur

How should the Harrolds shopper go about selecting the perfect TF fragrance this party season?

The Harrolds shopper should think about their outfit and how they want to feel at the party. We suggest something from the Eau Fraiche category if they would like to feel energized or uplifted – Neroli Portofino is always a good bet. Our favourite picks for creating and leaving a lasting impression would include, Lost Cherry & F Fabulous. Bitter Peach always complements a party outfit too! Don’t forget to match your fragrance mood with a lipstick too!

What’s the current cult-status fragrance in the Tom Ford Beauty repertoire?

F. Fabulous, Oud Wood and Bitter Peach is getting plenty of attention since it launched. Each of these fragrances has been thoughtfully created by Mr Ford and are as individual as the fragrance connoisseur who chooses to wear them.

What would Rose Prick wear if it were a person?

It would wear the Tom Ford Sequin Ruffle Skirt with the Silk Tuxedo Shirt, complete with Padlock Naked Heeled Sandal

And what about Fucking Fabulous?

The Tom Ford Ruffled Silk Satin Gown of course!

When it comes to TF lipsticks, what sets them apart from the rest? 

Not only is the wear and colour payoff second to none, they contain rare and exotic ingredients, such as Soja Seed extract, Brazilian Murumuru Butter and Chamomilla Flower Oil, for a creamy texture and ultra-smooth application.

What shade of TF lipstick should one wear to a summer soirée? 

Lip Color in Impassioned is the perfect suit-anyone brick red. Perfect to complete any outfit!

And what about on a laissez-faire first date night? 

Lip Color in Casablanca is the perfect first date night lipstick – it’s flirty and feminine and works on most skin tones.

What’s the ultimate NYE lip and perfume duo to wear as we usher out 2020? 

Well 2020 hasn’t been the best year, so to ensure that 2021 is Fabulous, there’s no better NYE duo that F. Fabulous Lip Color and F. Fabulous fragrance!

There’s no better NYE duo that F. Fabulous Lip Color and F. Fabulous fragrance!
