Each Tom Ford fragrance has been inspired by fragrance’s glamorous past – when the world’s most precious ingredients were used to create scents of supreme sophistication. Whichever collection he’s creating for, it’s always in an entirely wearable (and shareable) way – following the historic tradition in perfumery, when gender was ‘blurred’, Tom Ford believes that men and women can wear any of his fragrances.
Known for working incredibly closely with the perfumers who’ve shaped his collection (and renowned as a perfectionist in all things), scent is incredibly close to Tom Ford‘s heart.
Tom Ford was born in Austin, Teas, but spent most of his teens in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1990, Tom Ford moved to Milan to join Gucci as the company’s womenswear designer. In 1992, he became design director and in 1994 he was appointed Creative Director of Gucci. He was responsible for the design of all product lines, from clothing to perfumes.
In January 2000, following the acquisition of Yves Saint Laurent and YSL Beauté by the Gucci Group, Tom Ford assumed the position of Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche and YSL Beauté in addition to his then existing duties at Gucci.
In April 2005, Ford announced the creation of the Tom Ford brand. Ford was joined in this venture by former Gucci Group President and Chief Executive Officer, Domenico De Sole, who serves as Chairman of the company. In that same year, Ford announced an alliance with Esteé Lauder to create Tom Ford Beauty. To great success, the brand no ranks in the Top 3 brands at specialty stores worldwide!
