Black Orchid


Gummy, fruity, sensual velvety notes makes Black Orchid (Tom Ford 2006) a rich, super sweet, oriental powerhouse.  While not a powerhouse in a 1980’s, constant bordering on olfactory overload sort of way, it certainly comes close…  A persistent balsam and sugar coated vanilla are the finishing touches on a rich, decadent swirl of chocolate sprinkles notes.

To some, within the last decade since it debuted, it’s become a staple in their fragrance wardrobe.  To others it’s simply heavy and headache inducing…

I’m somewhere inbetween.

Top notes:  French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant and citrus.  Middle notes: black orchid.  Base notes: patchouli, sandalwood, dark chocolate, incense, amber, vetiver, vanilla and balsam.
