"The attention is captured by a sensuous blend of Black Truffle and Ylang mingled with fresh Bergamot and delectable Black Currant.
A dramatic signature unfolds with the custom-made TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID blended with dark, tempting florals and rich fruit accords. The heart is deepened with the intoxicating Lotus Wood.
The decadent Noir Gourmand Accord is balanced by Patchouli-incense and Vetiver. Vanilla tears add a fluid creaminess to warm Balsam and smooth Sandalwood".
Now this is one unique perfume. I normally have no trouble describing scents (in my own little way) but this one is so hard to describe because its so unique and different from anything else I have ever smelt.
First off I will say its definitely the most strongest and long lasting perfume that I own. You need to be careful when spraying this and if too much is sprayed, it will smell very strong and slightly off putting and overpowering. Only a small amount is needed for a strong lingering scent. Its definitely a statement perfume and one that will get you noticed and remembered by your scent.
I like strong scents, especially for evening wear. I like to smell sophisticated, powerful, yet sexy and Black Orchid fits the bill perfectly. Its a true "grown up" scent. There is no playfulness about it, no light girly feel. Its full on sophistication. It portrays a strong confident woman. Its a scent that both men and women will find seductive, alluring and intriguing.
I personally think its a fragrance that you will either love or hate, I don't think there is room for an in between as the notes are so strong. If you like light airy scents then this will not appeal to you, but if you like strong, bold, statement perfumes that ooze class, sophistication and captures peoples sense, then you definitely need to try Black Orchid.
