Summary: When I first sampled this fragrance, I was disgusted. Upon application, the scent is so overpowering to the point that it's revolting. However, after 10 minutes or so, everything levels out. The perfume is very unique, with a blend of intoxicating black orchid, sandalwood, and musk. I've never smelled anything like it. To me, it's a more masculine scent, and women who don't like intense perfumes will absolutely hate it.
Summary: The first time I sampled this I thought it was gorgeous so I sampled it again to make sure I wanted to purchase it but the 2nd time, after about 7 hours it developed a scent that I did not like at all. I've learned in the past that scents change on me so I always sample several times before purchasing.
Summary: I am amazed. BLACK ORCHID is an excellent perfume, and even though I say, it is for exceptional occasions, if I would have a full bottle, I would use it almost every day. At the beginning the freshness of black currant and bergamot overrun the airspace around me as a forerunner, before the torrent of dark orchid race in my nose, as a victorious conqueror.
Summary: I received a sample of this fragrance from Sephora, and have been sitting here trying to decide my thoughts about it. It was a little off putting and overpowering at first, reminding me a lot of Velvet Tuberose from Bath and Body Works. it's different, though, in that after wearing it for about half an hour, Im getting more notes of sandlewood and vanilla, which I really like.
Summary: This is quite an intimidating fragrance for a woman. It is not girly or romantic or delicate at all--to me it smells very masculine, which is perhaps why I imagine a woman who pulls off this fragrance to be a CEO or someone in a position of power, someone strong, logical, no-nonsense.
Too masculine for me, but a nice smell nonetheless!

Summary: I gave this to my husband because I don't have the balls (pun intended) to rock it. I could see a sexy, headstrong woman wearing it, or just a soft-spoken man in a cozy fisherman's sweater. There's nothing like it!
Summary: This fragrance is beautiful - slightly sweeter than I had imagined, based on some of the descriptions of it having woodsy notes, and quite feminine. The 4 ml amount is a good amount, as well. I don't use tons of perfume, so I find this size to be plenty to get lots of wear out of it. This is what I would call a dressy fragrance, something to wear on a special occasion, maybe a little complex for the office. I like it very much.
