If you've been in the presence of this famous Tom Ford fragrance, there's a good chance you'd recognize it right off the bat. From its undeniably full-body notes of juicy black cherries to the subtler notes of sweet almond, Turkish rose, and sambac, this fragrance offers an adult version of the fruity perfumes of our youth, housed in a pale-pink bottle that's reminiscent of cherry blossoms. The popularity of this Tom Ford scent has given way to two other beloved cherry fragrances, including the bright and playful Electric Cherry and mysterious Cherry Smoke

Developed by perfumer Louise Turner and released in 2018, Tom Ford's Lost Cherry has only grown in popularity since its debut. Now, however, there's no denying that it has become a polarizing fragrance among perfume lovers. Standing against the thousands of banner reviews for the fragrance are almost as many negative reviews. Many critics claim the fragrance's candy-like finish is sickly sweet. The heavy price tag also remains a topic of contention, with the 0.3-ounce bottle priced at $80 and the 3.4-ounce bottle clocking in at $595. 

To find a happy medium, I've scoured the internet to identify the 10 best-selling dupes for under $380. Before you scroll on, be warned: Every one of these perfumes is irresistible in its own way! Once you fall in love with these, your wallet (and cherry-loving heart) might not stand a chance.
