Scent of a Woman for men: Now available in a bottle. Last week, Tom Ford debuted a new ad campaign which featured his newest Men’s Fragrance directly between the legs of a naked, and nicely waxed, woman. Another fragrance from Germany, Vulva, is being sold with similar imagery.

The campaign has been controversial for obvious reasons and as you can see below, what has run in the US publications is a tamer, less titillating version of the actual photographs.
Below are the original photographs for Tom Ford’s campaign shot by Terry Richardson. These are the uncropped photos and are not marred with giant logos. The ads ran cropped and with the logos, of course, as you will see below.
I fear he has started a trend. Meet Vulva.
Now, a German company Vivaeros has a product called Vulva.
And although the site, shots, and ads seem like a ‘spoof’ on the Tom Ford work, the company insists the product is for real. They describe it as a “beguiling vaginal scent” and is selling it both as a fragrance for men to wear seemingly to bring them pleasure in the absence of the real thing and for women to wear during intercourse to stimulate their own pleasure.

About Tom Ford’s Controversial new ad campaign from WWD:
Though the designer took a more demure approach in his original ad campaign for his new fragrance, he’s decided to shock the masses once again, switching images shot by Marilyn Minter in April for racier photographs of a dewy woman’s body taken by Terry Richardson.
The photos range from tame to titillating — the most shocking being the Tom Ford for Men bottle wedged between a woman’s glistening thighs, with the bottle barely covering her bare genitalia. “We loved the original Marilyn Minter images, but while on a shoot with [Richardson] in Milan, we decided that a sharper, more graphic approach clearly communicated the bold and provocative mood of the fragrance,” said a spokeswoman for Tom Ford Beauty, a division of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.
