5 Best Tom Ford Lost Cherry Dupes In 2023


Tom Ford fragrances are lucious and long-lasting, but let’s face it, sometimes they simply aren’t in the budget. Other times, you might like the scent but prefer that some of the accords be changed or moved around.

This is where very similar replacements come into play. So if you’ve been searching for Tom Ford Lost Cherry dupes, then you’re in the right place because in this article, I’m giving you the best suggestions.

Top 5 Tom Ford Lost Cherry Dupes

While lots of dupes can exist out there in the fragrance world, not all of them are good replicas of Tom Ford’s fragrance.

The dupes I chose for this list not only smell similar to Lost Cherry, but they’re also made using high quality ingredients, and in some cases, offer more value for your dollar.

I was hard pressed to find a scent more closely aligned with Lost Cherry than this one. Fructus Virginis, translated Virgin’s Fruit, is a seductive fragrance that offers more cherry accords than Tom Ford, but is still well-balanced.

You’ll notice three cherry accords in this fragrance, black cherry, Griotte syrup, and cherry liqueur. Similar to Lost Cherry, you’ll also experience bitter almond, Turkish rose, and jasmine sambac – all on the top two layers.

Fructus Virginis dry down incorporates Peruvian tonka bean, balsam cedar, sandalwood, and vetiver. This base layer has fewer notes than Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry but it’s still complexly spicy, woody, earthy, and sweet.

It’s more concentrated, so that also adds to its value because it extends the length of use without having to spray on as much.

Ideal for: Someone who wants an affordable Lost Cherry replica.

Although Lost Cherry is a unisex fragrance, one of the closest matches that I found has fragrance accords that lean more feminine than unisex.

This dark cherry red shoe-shaped flacon is dusted with a glittery ombre from its base to mid-shoe, and then finished with a gold fluted heel.

Part of Carolina Herrera’s Good Girl collection, Very Good Girl Glam is an intense floral, woody, amber fragrance that can be worn day or night all year long. You can expect it to last at least 7 hours on your skin.

Similar to Lost Cherry, you’re introduced to Very Good Girl Glam with cherry and bitter almond. But this fragrance excludes the liqueur notes.

As you transition to the heart of this fragrance, the scent of rose and ambrette seeds rise to the fore. Ambrette is subtle and earthy, lending additional floral and sweet notes to the fragrance.

Very Good Girl Glam mellows out to more rose and ambrette seeds with the addition of tonka bean. It’s the tonka bean that adds the vanilla, spice and earthiness experienced in Lost Cherry’s dry down.

In terms of value, you’ll only receive 30 mL (1.01 fl oz) for a moderately priced bottle but it’s still more accessible than Lost Cherry.

Ideal for: Those who can do without fruity liqueur top notes and enjoy more of the rose notes.

3. Amber Gourmand Alternative: Dark Cherry & Amber EDP by Banana Republic

Dark Cherry & Amber opens up to sour cherry and pink freesia notes. Lost Cherry doesn’t add any floral notes this early on, and its top cherry note is sweet, not sour.

But implementing this note at the top of Dark Cherry & Amber also brings the nuttiness that’s present at the start of Lost Cherry. Pink freesia also adds spiciness and powder notes right at the start.

Transitioning to the heart of the fragrance, cherry blossom and praline dominate. The scent of cherry blossom is airier than rose, so floral notes in this fragrance are less dense.

Dark Cherry & Amber EDP by Banana Republic

In addition to adding sweetness, praline notes are also balsamic, which hints to the balsam base notes found in Lost Cherry.

At the dry down, you’ll find red amber and cedarwood. Cedarwood is one of the softer-smelling woods. Red amber brings additional sweet and balsamic notes along with spiciness, rich vanilla, and powdery notes that are almost musk-like.

Even though fewer accords are used on this base layer, these two ingredients create a dry down that closely resembles Lost Cherry.

Dark Cherry & Amber can be worn all day, but seasonal use is limited to cooler months.

Ideal for: Those who prefer not to smell boozy notes and are looking for something a bit sweeter and less floral heavy than Lost Cherry.

4. Fruity Alternative: La Petit Robe Noire EDT by House of Guerlain

  • La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Toilette by Guerlain is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women
  • La Petite Robe Noire is an ode to love and freedom
  • Top Notes: Rose, Green Notes and Jasmine
  • Middle Notes: Sour Cherry, Apple, Orange Blossom and Black Currant
  • Base Notes: White Musk, Patchouli and White Amber

Year Released: 2012
Fragrance concentration: Eau de toilette
Fragrance family: Floral fruity
Best seasons: Spring, early summer, early fall, early winter
Ideal occasion: More day than night
Longevity: 5+ hours
Bottle size: 100 mL (3.4 fl oz)
Approximate price: 💲💲

Similar to Very Good Girl Glam, this eau de toilette leans more towards feminine. Its scent notes are primarily floral, fruity, and fresh making this scent light, airy, and sweet.

Le Petit Robe Noire is elegant and alluring, but with a few gentle twists. You’re first greeted with rose, green notes, and jasmine. This is an interesting change from Lost Cherry, which puts these two floral notes in the middle. As top notes, and blended with fresh greens, they tend not to dominate the scent, keeping it airy.

Sour cherry, orange blossom, apple, and black currant comprise the fruity floral middle layer. Black currant is comparable to the plum heart notes found in Lost Cherry. The difference here being orange blossom and apple – sweet floral and tart green.
This scent’s dry down includes white amber, patchouli, and musk. Combined, you still get the spicy, sweet, powdery, and earthy close to this scent as you’ll experience with Lost Cherry.

On every layer, though the scent is milder, less intense because this is an eau de toilette. This lower fragrance concentration also means that this scent won’t last as long on the skin. It won’t project as well either, so you’re limited to wearing it during warmer months.

But, this fragrance bottle is larger than the previous ones mentioned and they’re all in the same price range, so you won’t lose a significant amount of value.

Although you might have to reapply this fragrance, it may not matter as much because you’ll have more of it to spray on in the first place.

Ideal for: Those who prefer less intense fragrances but with similar notes to Lost Cherry.

Also a unisex fragrance, FAKE Fragrances describes Love Cherry as an almost exact clone to Lost Cherry by Tom Ford.

Conclusion

Of course, anyone can wear any fragrance, so if you’re a guy who likes the softer scents, then go for it. This list is simply a guide to give you an idea of what to expect scent-wise.

Some scents smell sweeter and lighter, and others smell heavier and more dominant, unisex scents are in the middle of that range.

The best Lost Cherry dupe on this list is definitely Fructus Virginis parfum. I’m pretty sure it’s the closest you’re going to get to an exact match.

But if you want to experience Lost Cherry sans boozy notes, then you have to try Dark Cherry & Amber.
