Elton John has been spotted buying aftershave said to smell like cocaine and men's crotches.
A shopper in the Las Vegas branch of department store Neiman Marcus saw the 'Rocket Man' singer splashing out on 12 bottles of Tom Ford's Private Blend line of scents.
The fragrances' raunchy advertising campaign attracted much attention because it featured close up shots of the colognes next to male and female crotches.
Former Gucci designer Ford said he wanted his 'Black Orchid' scent to smell like a man's crotch, while his 'Tuscan Leather' is reported to have a scent similar to that of class A drug cocaine.
Elton has his own line of scented products - the 'Elton John Fireside Home Fragrance Collection' - which is available through the Bath and Body Works chain in the US.
