Erykah Badu for Tom Ford's White Patchouli


Gorgeous and aspirational. I normally hate the smell of pathchouli but I really need to smell this juice after eyeballing at this Erykah Badu advertisement. It was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and will debut in September issues of fashion and lifestyle magazines. I like this so much better than those sweaty body part ads for Tom Ford's other frag. Damn, I can't stop looking at this picture.

I also hate the smell of pathchouli. This picture is really lovely and full of energy.

"Her" hair? Obviously Badu checked her fierce Afrocentric essence at the door, wig and all. They might as well have used Diana Ross. This is a step up from Ford's oversexed ads, though.

I think the ad looks nice.We all know Tom Ford is obssessed with sex so this ad was a good look for Tom.

Hate patchouli, but THIS is the way to endorse. THIS is what a campaign should look like. I love the black and white photography & Erykah's hair. Much better than the waxed vag and oh so perfect 5:00 shadow from dear Tom.

Marvelous...

This is indeed a beautiful picture of Erykah. I don't know about the perfume,but the ad is stunning.
