This fragrance Friday, I’m presenting one of my favorite perfumes in my current collection, Tom Ford Black Orchid. I have wanted this perfume for the longest! Thankfully, my husband gifted me the 3.4 fl oz bottle of Tom Ford Black Orchid this past Christmas. I’ve been wearing it ever since.
Tom Ford Black Orchid comes in a sleek black bottle with gold detailing; it looks expensive. It’s simple, and sexy, but still calls attention just like the fragrance that’s inside of it.
Tom Ford Black Orchid features a slew of notes I prefer to have in the fragrances I wear like jasmine, patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla. These, along with the other notes – bergamot, citrus, mandarin, black gardenia, ylang-ylang, lotus wood, orchid, spicy floral accord, orchid (Tom Ford Black Accord), and incense – make for a unique, alluring fragrance.
Tom Ford Black Orchid is one of those fragrances, that after the first whiff, you can’t get enough of it; it’s intoxicating. A strong, deep fragrance that only takes a little to take you on a journey to experiencing chocolate mixed with berries, and then spice and smoke… to who knows? I swear that each time I wear it my senses are taken on a different journey, which is a good thing, at least for me.
Tom Ford Black Orchid, I have worn during the day, but have found that it is most suitable for evening wear. It’s described as “Luxurious, sensual, and timeless.” And I agree, that is encompasses all of those characteristics, especially sensuality. Let’s just call it ‘sex in a bottle’. My husband loves this on me! Seriously, only wear it if you’re looking to get laid. .:LOL:. Date nights, and if you’re single, nights out on the town with your girls. I always receive compliments whenever I wear it, which speaks to its sillage; it’s great. Tom Ford Black Orchid lasts all day as well. All day!
I’d recommend Tom Ford Black Orchid for any woman looking for an elegant fall or winter fragrance that’s deep, dark, and mature to the point that it’s almost masculine. Just be mindful of the fact that a little goes a long way, and too much can be overbearing. However, if you’re looking for a dark fragrance that’s a bit lighter, try Odin NY 09 Posala, which I reviewed previously.
Tom Ford Black Orchid can be purchased at Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus in 1 fl oz – 3.4 fl oz bottles.
