Summary: Tom Ford Black Orchid is my most favorite fragrance of all that I have used in the past 60 years. It last all day and takes such a small amount that it makes it worth paying more because a bottle will last year forever.
Summary: "Ever been in one of these old Hollywood palazzos? That's from when they were making eighteen thousand a week, and no taxes." Everytime I smell BO, it will remind me of these lines of film Sunset Boulevard. Black Orchid is just like the mansion that beyond our imagination, it's an echo of the faded glory which luxury perfume used to own. It's so different from nowadays perfumes which always pretend to be lovely but lack of characters.
Summary: I smelled this today... wow. It's simply incredible. It's the strong, spicy, darkness in a fragrance I've been looking for! It's decadent, intense, and intriguing. Powerful at first spray. The most I got out of it was the incense, which was very prominent. Smoky. Warm. Perfect! Not for the faint of heart, though :p. It's almost to the point where it's masculine, but the floral middle notes hold it back and keep it feminine. This is a must have!
Summary: Imagine a dark forest at night, thick with mist, the moon full and bright. A dark haired beauty wearing a deep red velvet dress awaits her lover in a gossamer tent under the trees. Inside the tent, incense burns while the woman enjoys dark chocolate, slowly allowing the bitter sweetness to melt on her tongue. Her lover finally arrives and they make passionate love, their bodies glistening with sweat as they utter eternal love. This is Black Orchid!
Summary: No other perfume smells like this one. This one talks, writes dark gothic poems, comes with such a power and on the other hand makes you feel warm and sexy in that castle of darkness. I simply couldn't resist to write this comment this way - without talking about components.Some perfumes you can only describe this way.Perfect ones.
Summary: I was really enchanted trying this frangrance for the first time. It seemed to me very profond, pretty allegorical ;). Real Black Orchid - combination of popular ingredients making some new quality, some new scent. But now all I can smell is a caramel - and I do believe that's my skin's fault.
Summary: This is a very strong scent that demands attention. Unlike some others, I am not turned off by the top notes. I smell more citrus and spice than chocolate truffle. I am very impressed with the tom ford frangrances I have tried thus far.
Summary: I only have a sample of this and while I would like to hoard it until I can get my hands of a bottle, I can't resist wearing it. Such an enticing scent, deep and opulent! I don't get even a hint of the citrus listed in the notes, but I do get plenty of truffle, Orchid and wisps of dark chocolate. I detect something woody here, too...not exactly sandalwood nor patchouli....maybe both with the vetiver?
Summary: Ford's exhibition of a semi- monochromatic theme is well pronounced in this work of art. With the focus of blackness, a mythical synergy is encountered with his well balanced selection of black flowers and woodsy spices.The darkness of the black currant, black orchid, and black gardenia mixed with the sweetness of black truffle create the mood of darkness in an exotic form.The array of fruity notes in the base are inviting and you can't help anticipating what will evolve...
