'My pussy tastes like Pepsi cola...'
promised the then newly discovered Lana del Rey in 2012 in 'Cola' on her debut album 'Born to die' and added: 'My eyes are wide like cherry pies / I got a taste for men who are older / It′s always been, so it's no surprise' In return, she received all the calculated outrage that childishly sexualized ordinariness was - and still is - capable of eliciting. And while del Rey's sadcore - the play of sexuality and guilt and innocence and regret - may have worn thin a bit since then, it has successfully remained the subject of many of her songs.

The same childishly sexualized ordinariness - something strikingly sweet, made almost provocatively plain, followed by something that cites physicality, perhaps intimacy, certainly sex - is also the theme of Tom Ford's Bitter Peach (whose phonetic proximity to a shade of black and red nail polish he launched back in the late 2000s called 'Bitter Bitch' I can find only barely coincidental). He is purposeful provocation. Deliberately dosed cheapness. The deliberate play of childish innocence and seduction. Vladimir Nabokov would be delighted.

It begins with a fruit accord - peach ice tea as if from a Tetrapak - of striking one-dimensionality, as I rather expected from a Disney princess perfume from the drugstore. This alluring sugaryness is followed by a kind of metallic skin accord - a little damp, a little sweaty - and hints of alcohol. It fades into a broken alto tone, as some perfumes develop them the following day on the collar of a garment - not unpleasant, but just still only the inkling of a previous day's scent, fleeting as the memory.

Bitter Peach is a calculated affront. He - and the price is not even meant - to put in the same portfolio as other private blends requires proper chutzpah, because a multi-dimensional fragrance experience he does not even offer. It plays with innuendo and seduction that seems innocent and inappropriate at the same time. Much the same can be said about most Private Blends in reddish bottles - the odd Cherry Collection, Rose Prick, perhaps even Jasmine Rouge - perfumes for Lana del Rey all: expensive and cheap at the same time.

Conclusion: a fragrance like a photograph of a fifteen-year-old with eyes made up far too much and panties too short, looking challengingly into the lens. As a concept academically not uninteresting thought and consistently executed. But how many more perfumes for Lana del Rey does he want to make?

The iced tea to spray on
I have long thought about whether I test Bitter Peach, but now I did it, especially after the Dua Dupe of Bitter Peach has now landed in my friend's collection, as he was a bit too sweet and feminine for me. I was really excited to try Bitter Peach. I tested my small bottling immediately and what can I say honestly the association of iced tea in a tetra pack came to me immediately, with Bitter Peach even more so as it is less sweet than its dupes but somehow this lack of sweetness really makes it seem to me like I am emptying iced tea over my head. I don't think the smell is bad but honestly I don't want to smell like that, especially as a man I find Bitter Peach doesn't suit me at all. I have to say here unfortunately once again Tom Ford brings out since about 2 years only perfumes which I do not like at all or are too feminine for me. The price of Bitter Peach is for me in no way justified, here can of course again the objection come which perfume is really worth so much money honestly of course none, but with Bitter Peach I can not talk me the price, it just does not work. I do not see Bitter Peach as a flop or repulsive but for me simply unsuitable and in addition the price, but somehow Bitter Peach just reminds me of iced tea which is the whole unfortunately for me in the long run not portable, because I somehow just do not want to smell like the 99 cent tetrapack from the supermarket around the corner. But I still find that the fragrance has its fans rightly, on a woman I can imagine him with much better and if one does not mind this iced tea note.

Attraction and repulsion equally
In order to really get to what this fragrance reminds me of, I would have had to wear it longer. But I couldn't, because it aroused incredibly unpleasant associations in me and I was glad when the last whiff of it had disappeared from my wrist after showering the next morning. After all the previous evaluations, I had not at all expected that he would catch me so emotionally cold. I had expected him to give me a happy squeaky iced tea-bubblegum feeling that would be sweet, pushy and with images like sunglasses, palm trees and so on. But it was not like that at all. I had clearly underestimated the "bitter". I did not think of a sweet, juicy peach for a single moment. In fact, I have to make a real effort and concentrate in order to perceive the peach with various other scents and a great strictness and in my perception somehow also "sharpness" at all. As strange as it sounds, somehow this scent smells to me like an older man from a criminal or at least shady or slightly neglected milieu. I definitely associate it with "older age", maybe there was such a related scent in some form (detergent or similar) in the retirement home where I visited my grandmother regularly. There must have been some synapses that jumped up in me and produced associations that I didn't know existed in my brain. It was probably the fascination about it that made me keep sniffing my wrist, even though I didn't like the smell at all. For me it was already too good, I really only sprayed one or two puffs from a bottling on my wrist at lunchtime and felt surrounded, if not "followed", by this scent all day long until I went to bed. I will probably be fascinated and repulsed by the bottling every now and then to try to find out where these associations come from. I will most likely not wear it myself anymore.

Iced tea hits the spot
I can absolutely agree with the review of Ischgelroi in essence. In this case, Long Island Ice Tea is even more appropriate, because the fragrance has a clearly perceptible "boozy" aroma, at least initially. The top note is a very loud fruit brandy. In it, however, there is also something sweaty, depraved, and yes, quite sexual. In the first quarter of an hour, the name "Bitter Peach" is absolutely accurate. Later, these overtones fade and a somewhat fresher peach remains. If you like gourmand fragrances, you will definitely find what you are looking for here.
Who does not want to smell like food - beware! Personally, I also have the problem that the typical peach aroma for me is one of the rather burdensome, headache notes from the sweet fruit area. Tom Ford has also amplified / "weighted" the peach here so that this is really not for me.
The durability is good, to the sillage I can unfortunately just say nothing. The price-performance ratio (currently 285 EUR for 50 ml in Douglas) is in my opinion very worthy of discussion. For this price range, the fragrance lacks sophistication. Even though the fragrance note list is very long we have here 95% peach, and that is too clumsy for me. However, those who like this fruit will definitely be happy here.

Expectation vs. reality...
Hello everyone,

a few words about Bitter Peach Eau de Parfum for the evening
My brief history with the brand:

I've known the brand for about 15 years and I can still remember the first fragrances I had or only tested (and there were quite a few). There used to be fragrances like Oud Wood Eau de Parfum , "Tobacco Vanilla (Eau de Parfum) | Tom Ford" , Tobacco Oud , Tuscan Leather Eau de Parfum , London and many many others that had real added value... and I think since 2017 (with the Fucking Fabulous Eau de Parfum ) and 2018 (with the Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum ), things went noticeably downhill. Gradually, more and more were discontinued and fragrances such as Bitter Peach Eau de Parfum and Cherry Smoke and co. entered the stage...

I am certainly not a friend of this decision + development, but you can test the newcomers... short and honest... THOSE are NOT worth it. I think they're bad, really!

What happened to Tom Ford, the brand, the visionary...?

And it's not even the worst part..., the worst part is the "crazy" price. You pay really good money for synthetics, not for little....

The Bitter Peach Eau de Parfum smells like a synthetic peach, artificial flowers, chemical sweetness and... - somehow very unpleasant.

And by the way, the performance was really modest on me and my wife...

Unfortunately it's not for me, but it might be for you!

And now have a nice day/evening, or whatever you read this review, LG the Benny

Initially juicy spicy-fruity, this slightly boozy, yet creamy/sweet floral-fruity Spring fragrance, settles to a gentle oriental-woody base.
