Estée Lauder is officially concluding its deal to acquire Tom Ford. The beauty conglomerate is expected to tap other partners to help with the fashion and accessories side.
The Wall Street Journal was first to report the completion of the deal. While New York-based Estée Lauder Cos. is the main buyer, they will involve additional partners to help the beauty brand to understand the workings to enter into the competitive luxury fashion and accessories space. Earlier this month, Business of Fashion reported that Tom Ford is worth around $3 billion USD.
It was also recently reported that Estée Lauder was competing with French luxury conglomerate Kering. Ford’s former employer. In 2004, Ford and his business partner Domenico De Sole parted ways and in 2005, the Tom Ford brand launched as Estée Lauder’s official beauty partner. Now, owning Tom Ford will drive greater profits for the group as Tom For sits on prestigious makeup and fragrance categories, growing 18% and 13% respectively during the second quarter of 2022.
It is unclear if this new deal will allow the Tom Ford brand to continue to expand into the womenswear collection and if Tom Ford himself will continue to be the brand’s creative director. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.
Tom Ford presents the newest limited edition moisturizing lip balm and treatment that applies clear and instantly transforms into a sultry pink stain. Lip Blush perfectly captures the gilded glow of Tom Ford Soleil with special gold-tone packaging and gold flecks.
Capturing the gilded glow of Tom Ford’s Soleil Collection, the ultra-hydrating Lip Blush contains a unique infusion of shimmering 24-karat gold flecks. The nourishing balm glides on with a transparent finish, transforming into a light wash of satin-like colour for a scintillating statement.
Sunkissed bronze or lucent bright, radiant skin with a hint of daring color has a powerful simplicity that is effortlessly stunning.
Tom Ford’s Lip Blush is probably the least daunting pink lipstick you’ve ever encountered, mostly because the lipstick itself isn’t pink – it’s clear and accented with 24K gold flecks. At $58 a pop, those decorative gold flecks don’t come without a cost, but you’re not really just paying for gorgeous packaging. The clear moisturizing lipstick transforms into a pretty pink shade once it hits your lips, according to the brand, that shade is also universally flattering.
At first, it looks like you’re just applied lip balm, but seconds later, you see the rosy satin pink show up on your lips. It almost looks like you just ate a strawberry popsicle and you have a little stain leftover on your lips.
The Tom Ford Lip Blush Z09 Soleil is available at Tom Ford’s official website and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.

In 2014 Tom Ford launched a new edition to the Neroli Porofino Collection: Costa Azzurra. The popular fragrance is now included in the Tom Ford Signature Collection, and comes in a new stylish flacon.
If Aristotle Onassis was alive today I’d guarantee Costa Azzurra would be stocked aboard the Christina O.
Costa Azzurra captures the easy sensuality of a purely uninhibited escape. It evokes the spirit of the sun-baked Mediterranean woodlands, where pines and oaks mingle with wild-growing herbs near the sea. It explores the alluring vibe of the region (think crystal clear waters, white-washed villas and sun-kissed skin).
Costa Azzurra boasts a myriad of complex notes, each chosen to complement the next. A hint of fucus, paired with the sandy, salt-baked driftwood and warm agarwood accord make way for glints of freshness, carried by hints of cardamom, celery, and ambrette seed.
A unique blend of juniper berry, myrtle, armoise, basil and French lavender fused with Italian lemon and yellow mandarin pair to create an earthy freshness, which is reiterated by woody notes including cypress, oak and cedar. In-time, base notes including ambery citrus, smoky olibanum, and vetiver oil pair with vanilla to effuse a full-bodied, woody-yet-fresh scent.
Instead of the cleur blue glass flacon, now Costa Azzura comes in the cylindrical glass flacon with its iconic ribbed elegance; a hallmark of the Tom Ford Signature line. The cap and the metallic plate are gold colored while the juice is a warm and sunny yellow.
Costa Azzurra in its new flacon is followed by an attractive advertising campaign shot by Steven Klein and Mario Godlewski featuring Parker vanNoord as the advertising face. The Dutch model takes us for a swim in the new campaign for Tom Ford’s Costa Azzurra fragrance.
The top male model is seen diving into a pool at night for this sensual fragrance. Together with renowned photographer Steven Klein, van Noord effortlessly captured the sensual essence of the fragrance, which resulted in a gorgeous campaign with hints of gold and midnight blue.
In charge of styling was Carine Roitfeld, with set design from Andrea Stanley. Beauty is work of hair stylist Thom Priano, makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo, and manicurist Honey.
Tom Ford Costa Azzurra is available as a 50ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum at Tom Ford Boutiques, and at selected stores worldwide.
Tom Ford’s latest addition to his high-end fragrance collection, Private Blend, will be officially released in early October 2020. Following in the footsteps of Fucking Fabulous, Rose Pink, and Lost Cherry; Bitter Peach marks another show-stopper launch by Tom Ford. Bitter Peach, like the previous one in the line, Lost Cherry, plays with the theme of juicy and sweet fruit in a Tom Ford way. Tom Ford Bitter Peach evokes the sweet scent of freshly picked peaches.
The new fragrance evokes the scent of ripe peach, is described as dangerously lavish and erotic, and enriches it with opulent aromas of fine drinks and spicy notes of cardamom. Pêche de Vigne is mixed with Sicilian blood orange, davana oil with infused rum and cognac, Indonesian patchouli, sandalwood, labdanum, and vanilla. The composition is described as sweet and sensual, but also rich and characterful, with pronounced woody and resinous undertones.
Tom Ford Bitter Peach is housed in a striking flacon that will look so chic displayed on your vanity.

Last year American designer Tom Ford launched Beau de Jour for his Private Blend Collection, wrapped in a brown glass flacon. Today the fragrance for the perfectly groomed gentleman will be available now in a new stylisch flacon.
The newest flacon is designed as a combination of several popular Tom Ford creations: the cylindrical shape of the flacon is the same as Ombre, Ombre Leather and methallique, while the glass is frosted with the iconic ribbed elegancy of the Tom Ford Signature line. The color of the liquid is light green.
A fresh, commanding entrance of Lavender from Provence introduces the clean and fervent facets of the Beau de Jour scent. The cool and refreshing opening is further amplified with an infusion of an energetic hybrid of lavenders. The core beats with the herbal inflection of African Rosemary and floral green Geranium with its subtle mint nuance, a powerful contrast to the leather-like warmth of Oakmoss and the electric green of Basil. Patchouli and Ambercreate an earthy foundation of radiant wood and sensual musky warmth, further elevating Beau de Jour’s refreshing notion of masculinity through the finish.
Beau de Jour can be considered as a re-introduction of old classic blends for customers who either don’t have any experience (due to their age) with the old classics and thus consider them cool and new, or those who miss the good old perfumes and smell their quotations in Tom Ford’s new creations.
Nothing, I mean nothing is dated here. A fresh modern homage that somehow feels new. This can be worn year around for any occasion and is signature worthy. Will be a classic in my book and is easily my favorite from Tom Ford. Really look forward to rocking this frequently!
With the launch of Beau de Jour for the Signature Collection, Tom Ford presents the advertising campaign for this fragrance with the English actor Joe Alwyn, well known for his roles in the award-winning film ‘The Favourite’ and in ‘Mary Queen of Scots’.
Tom Ford Beau de Jour will be available soon as a 50ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum at Tom Ford boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.
It’s been three years in the making, but Tom Ford’s debut skincare line is finally heading our way.
In 2006, when Tom Ford reached beyond his fashion foundations to launch an eponymous empire that included fragrances and, come 2011, makeup, it emerged as one of the most coveted names in beauty. One very significant category has been conspicuously missing from the luxury brand’s offerings, though: skin care. But now, more than a decade later, Ford is expanding his partnership with Estée Lauder to launch Tom Ford Research.
I wanted to start a serious skin-care arm and have it be science-based. This is a real skin-care product and regimen. I’m not a designer who has thrown his name on a beautifully packaged cream.
Ford told WWD in a new interview about the upcoming debut, ensuring consumers they’re not just splurging on something that will look lovely on their vanities.
So, to ensure his new skin-care products were being formulated with a commitment to science, Ford requested and received his own dedicated lab from Estée Lauder. After 75 different trial concoctions, its first two creations – Serum Concentrate and Crème Concentrate – are mere weeks away from debuting in the U.S. at Tom Ford boutiques and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Tom Ford is a true visionary. He has this unique ability to see into the future, as expressed through his singular vision and trailblazing fashion to create an inimitable world of seduction and uncompromising exclusivity.
Guillaume Jesel, President Tom Ford Beauty
Both products rely heavily on caffeine from a Japanese green tea called gyokuro and the rare white porcelain cacao. “Years ago, a dermatologist told me that the best thing for puffy eyes was moist tea bags. Every time I did it, I noticed that it also moisturized my skin”, Ford told WWD, explaining why so much of the brand’s research was focused on caffeine. There’s much more to the product than caffeine, though; Ford tells WWD that the products also contain AHAs like glycolic and lactic acids, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
If you’re worried that this new launch means Ford is taking his eye off the ball in the beauty categories he already thrives in, don’t. A new fragrance called Métallique just joined his iconic collection, and you can find the floral-aldehyde – a first for the brand – at Sephora, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus.
Beauty doesn’t come cheap, Tom Ford Research Serum Concentrate will be available for $350 and Crème Concentrate for $450. Tom Ford Research Serum Concentrate and Crème Concentrate launch in August, and three more products, including an eye cream, will debut in spring 2020. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.
Willful. Fearless. Addictive. Beneath its cool veneer, the floral heart of new Tom Ford Métallique scent is amplified by juxtaposing delicate white blossoms of aubepine and muguet with the narcotic-like nectar of heliotrope.
Forged with elegant brilliance, Tom Ford Métallique mesmerizes its admirers with a pulsating flash of modern, resolute femininity, willful, luminous and in full bloom.
Tom Ford Métallique was created by perfumer Antoine Maisondieu. One of the ingredients which defines perfume of the mid-20th century is aldehydes. From their appearance in Chanel No. 5 they were prevalent in many of the great floral perfumes which followed. It was so entwined with that era in perfume it also came to represent it. It also is the one ingredient which elicits the damning reaction, “….that perfume is for someone older than me”. It is the keynote of the dreaded descriptor ‘old lady perfume’. This has kept it from being used very often in new perfumes. Tom Ford Metallique is going to try to change that.
Like an armored embroidered dress, the metallic sheath of lighter-than-air aldehydes opens the scent like a second skin. The collision of crisp vert de bergamote and pink peppercorn further steel the insatiability of the first impression. The floral heart is amplified by juxtaposing delicate white blossoms of aubepine and muguet with the narcotic-like nectar of heliotrope. An aura of ambrette seed imparts warmth with woody inflections of peru balsam. The soft scent of vanilla and creamy sandalwood layer an addictive, contrasting finish that further drives the metallic suiting of the open.
Top Note: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Pink peppercorn
Heart Note: Heliotrope, Lily of the Valley, Hawthorn
Base Note: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Ambretta seed, Peru balsam
The addictive aldehyde start envelopes a much more sensual core of delicately layered white flowers, creating a contrast that shifts from cool to lush. Aubepine, an ancestor of the rose that’s more complex and piquant, blends with sweet muguet and intoxicating nectar of heliotrope that’s both light and powdery and powerfully rich. The closing notes bring a layer of warmth — which is ideal for a scent that’ll take you into crisp fall — thanks to ambrette seed, balsam, vanilla, and creamy sandalwood. It’s a finish that brings a comforting effect to the bold, metallic start of this multi-toned fragrance.
The smooth, silver bottle with gold-toned label and cap echo the precious metal theme of the Tom Ford Métallique, and impart a luxe look that’ll elevate your vanity. Plus, with an appearance that’s totally different from the rest of Tom Ford’s perfumes, it’ll be the standout that’ll help you make a statement during the shift from summer to autumn.
Tom Ford Métallique is available as 50 ($150) or 100 ($195) ml Eau de Parfum. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.

The new year promises to be an aromatic one as many stylish and elegant perfumes are set to be released. Not an exception comes from the fashion designer Tom Ford. The Neroli Portofino Collection has received a new edition, a fresher version of the original Costa Azzurra fragrance launched in 2014, named Costa Azzurra Acqua.

Costa Azzurra Acqua is a fresher expression of Costa Azzura. It merges cool air and refreshing waters as one.
The fragrance represents the interpretation of salty waves of the wind and the sea that collide with the heat of the sun on the body. The moment of impact of the fresh sea air mixes salty with woody notes on the beach, wild cypress, juniper and myrtle. Lemony citrus notes refresh the earthy accords of pine cones and needles.
Perfect for men and women, Costa Azzurra Acqua is easy to be worn during the day.Tom Ford Costa Azzurra Acqua is available in flacons of 50 and 100ml Cologne.
