Description
Black Orchid’s dark feast begins with intensely sweet hothouse jasmine and gardenia, with their drooping petals backlit by blackcurrant and bergamot. An oil-painted orris note follows in the heart, infused with deep fruit and spice accords. Gourmand chocolate and vanilla accents heighten the midnight velvet base.

Tom Ford Black Orchid description

Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is a dark feast of a fragrance. It lures you in with a demure opening of lemons and bergamot, but soon jasmine, gardenia and blackcurrants open beneath the citrus and all innocence is lost. The piquant spice of the blackcurrant stands out after a few minutes and becomes a bridge note between the opening and the sumptuous spices and fruit accords that arrive in t

I enjoyed this scent very much! This is one of my new favorite scents! This scent is sexy and seductive! I feel like a million dollars when I wear it! I am a middle school teacher and wear it more than any other fragrance that I own! I wanted to order this scent again but it is out of stock!

It’s okay
It’s not a horrible scent but just to woody for me, it does have a very strong smell the first time you spray, but after a couple of hours it is a nice subtle smell.

So Fancy
Love the scent! It is clean but also subtly sexy. It lasts all day is not in your face or so strong it makes you sick! Like some other reviews it is a little masculine but I love that and expected that with Scentsy advising it is Woody. I would 100% get again!

It changes
Ok,so out of the box I was like "Eww, this smells like licorice! That was not part of the scent description!" and I really wanted to chuck it in the trash but a friend reminded me that some perfumes change when they mix with your body chemistry. Reluctantly, I heeded her advice and put it on. 5 minutes later I smell like exotic flowers. It's a very classy aroma. give it a chance.

Not my type of scent..
Honestly I don’t find this unique. Smells so common.. but the lasting power is great. 2 sprays is just good enough because it’s so strong. Do I find it sexy? No. How about masculine? In between. Heavy? Yes. Staying power? It will linger on your cloths for weeks.. sweet?? Someone said little sweet and sour. The only reason for a 4 star because the fragrance stays... it sticks with you like glue... sorry I don’t love it at all ..

The smell is too strong smells like a musty old trunk not appealling at all. Only if you like over powering perfume i sprayed a little and I could taste it. But it does have good staying power Ive had it on for daya and it has not come off. I do not recommend this.

High end ingredients
High end perfume but very strong. I am not a fan on this scent but can appreciate it. The musk of this perfume lingers. If you enjoy heavier scents, then this is your jam. Fruity and light fans should go in another direction.

Evening scent
This scent was pretty heavy and felt like a winter, evening fragrance. At first I almost got old-lady perfume vibes off of the heavy aspect but it eventually grew on me and I did begin to enjoy it more. I typically go for strong fragrances but I want something that works for day and evening.

Not for me
I have heard great reviews but It just doesn't fit me. My husband even disliked the scent. It is very strong and it wore very will for the length of time it had lasted. I wish other fragrances had lasted as long. The problem is that the scent is not for me it is bold. I like fruity and even florals, I can also do clean and refreshing. I however do not like the rich woodsy bold scent that this fragrance provides.

A very intense yet subtle fragrance. Goes on strong but mellows. Perfect for date night or a bold wear for the office; truly depends on you. As with any fragrance, you can love it or hate it. I happen to find this scent flirty and warm, again great for date night.

Very Fragrant
It goes on strong and lasts forever. There is no need to replenish this fragrance unless maybe you've had it on all day and wish to have it on all night as well. It's a very exotic smell and once it mellows a bit on your skin is very lovely and uplifting yet calming.

This is usually my fav scent but...
I'm not convinced that this is the real Black Orchid by Tom Ford. I spray this every time I go to Sephora and the scent lasts a while. When I sprayed my perfume when I got it the scent only lasted for an hour and it didn't smell like I remember. I will give this subscription 1 more month and if I am not happy with February's Angel which I used to wear before, then I am gonna cancel my subscription.

This one is definitely one of my favorites. Though at first I didn’t like it as it has a strong dark smell which is somewhat very sweet at first. But after like 50 seconds it softens and lasts very long. It’s definitely for a night out kinda smell thou you can make it your signature smell. Its 30 percent musky, 50 percent sweet and then is darkk kinda smell. Love it

Lovely, but short-lived
This scent is everything I was looking for-warm and woodsy without being overly masculine. It’s slightly mysterious and perfect for winter. However, the scent does not last longer than 3-4 hours. It’s really unfortunate. With this price point, I expected twice the longevity.

Masculine
The scent is very masculine. It is very strong and more than one spray would be overpowering. It could be a cologne or unisex. There is a warmth to it, a vanilla maybe, its saving grace. It has earned a place in my purse as an emergency only scent.

For the bold
Strong, bold smell. Not an every day scent. Borders on old ladyish at times. Found it difficult to use only a little at a time so it would tend to always smell a bit heavy handed. Would work better with a more controlled application.
