An explosion of violets on a canvas of black orchid, rum, magnolia and hyacinth, Tom Fordโ€™s Velvet Orchid is plush, intensive and spot on mysterious scent.

We all know Tom Fordโ€™s fragrant juices are meticulous works of art, and Velvet Orchid perfectly fits the description.

It is a bold and strong fragrance for the ones who want to be noticed, a very deep and sensual scent, spicy sweet based on a pillow of mellow floral notes.

It opens with soft, subtle sweet floral-honey cocktail swirled with rum.

At the beginning, you may be inclined into thinking that this is a girly girl perfume, the one who reaches for pink lipstick and unicorn themed bedding.

But no, the rich, velvet, sultry base of vanilla, suede and sandalwood creates a firework on your skin, transforming the sweet floral petals into warm, full on explosion of splendor.

If you want to smell expensive, Velvet Orchid will most definitely fulfill your wish.

I know that this perfume has received mix reviews, which usually stand at the opposite sides of the spectrum.

I am a true fan, and I cannot understand it being labeled as a bad Black Orchid flanker.

If I am being completely honest and in a fragrant blasphemy mood, I would say Velvet Orchid is better than Black Orchid.
