Tom Ford - Black Orchid Eau De Parfum

18.8.15






As a rather huge Tom Ford fan, I was excited when I was gifted this perfume by a friend of mine as an early birthday present. 
Created using a blend of Black Truffle and Ylang with Bergamot and a pretty strong scent of Black Currant, Black Orchid is the perfect dramatic signature for both men and women.

With top notes of jasmine, gardenia, blackcurrent, lemon and base notes of incense, chocolate and amber, it really is a treat for the nose. To me it is a very rich, deep woody smell, although the fruit combination is also evident when settled, although the vanilla notes tone it down and add more of a creaminess to the smell. I often find myself reaching for this whenever I'm off out for the night, particularly because it is super long-lasting, but also due to the richness and elegance of the smell.

Although having said that, I can imagine this suiting a man just as much! Despite being a little sweet-smelling, once settled, the spicy notes become a lot more noticeable, making it the perfect cologne for a man. If that isn't enough to sell it to you, just look at that bottle! So simplisticly chic and modern. I die!

Have you tried any Tom Ford scents? If so let me know below as this has become a personal favourite of mine, so I'd love to try out more.

  2. Would love to try this, the packaging is gorgeous! We are in love with rich scents, especially ones that are a tad masculine, so this perfume would be perfect
