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 the heart.

Obsessed.
Unlike many of the scents I typically wear, but really made a lasting impression. It's intense at first, but settles into the skin nicely. Got many compliments.

I would give it one star, but I need to sample it again, I didn'tgive it a fair chance--I only sampled it once and swapped away the sample as soon as possible, cause I was repulsed. I have been told to wait longer and not scrub. I remember a combination of truffle mushroom, chocolate, skanky patchouli, and a general strength that projected as intensely as Angel by Thierry Mugler. It never fails to amaze me how many people rave over it--maybe the drydown is nice.

The lasting power is incredible on the skin. It is a mature fragrance but doesnt smell like "old lady"... very sophisticated! This is one of my all time favorite EDPs. I have a 3.4 oz bottle but I still love getting the scentbird bottles whenever I can lol

Overrated, I think
The name "Black Orchid" conjured something dark and seductive. But I found it innocent, clean and too sweet for my taste. Not bad, but certainly not worth the hype. When I see something labeled "black", I expect a darkness to it. In spite of the name, it's fine for the office or a dinner date.

Love this scenting me, and it lingers for hours with not that many sprays. I put this on last night after my shower and it’s evening time the next day and I can still smell it vibrantly, will be getting again!!!

Strong, unisex scent
I hate the smell of incense so I’m a tad biased and didn’t care for this perfume because that’s all I could smell. I don’t hate it and I do think it’s a great, strong, unisex scent that would be great for a night out. I’m going to save it for fall and winter to see if I like it more then but as of now, this scent isn’t for me which is disappointing because I love Tom Ford perfumes. What is nice, however is how long the perfume lasts on me and I think the scent is unique and not too heavy at all. If you like woody, sexy scents this may be for you!

Sexy
This is not a scent for work unless you just feel like being sexy. It's opposites...a floral and a musk combined. If you wear it to work, be prepared for strangers to smell you in the elevator. It's weird but it happened.

Very Different
This perfume smelled very incentsy and mature. I could easily match this scent with someone who is very bohemian in style, or someone who likes more natural smelling things. It was pretty intense in smell and very different. I probably wouldn't get it again because it's not my style, but it is beautiful.

Absolutely loved this fragrance. Perfect blend for me. I am not a big fan of musk, but took a chance and was so glad I did. Scent was long lasting and soft, yet bold.

My favorite scent so far!
I wear this constantly since I’ve received it. I love the woody incense smell. Bummer it’s out of stock. I had to have it, and bought it from another source. I don’t understand how Scentbird gives you a sample and doesn’t have it in stock. Isn’t that the point?

A bit strong...
I typically enjoy heavy/darker scents than a light women's perfume, but this was too much for me. Maybe it didn't work with my body chemistry, but I wouldn't purchase it again. My husband on the other hand can wear this and I enjoy it on him, nobody would know that it is women's and not mens.

What's the fuss about Tom Ford. This perfume is intense and not in a good way. It is like the perfume your older fancy aunt has had forever and it has been sitting in bad lighting and she thinks still smells good.

Not Impressed!
First, when the perfume came, the bottle was half empty because it had leaked out into all the packaging.(this is the second time I've had this happen.) Also, the scent is so strong and overpowering it made me lightheaded. Very unimpressed!
