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.

3.6 out of 5
Not what i expected
I dont like this sent
Absolute top favorite perfume of all time amd wouldn’t have ever discovered it without SB!
Smells are overwhelming . Old lady smells
It smells very nice but a bit on the strong side.
It was so strong and to me it smelled like men’s cologne. Dont get me wrong there are some men’s colognes that I like but this one smelled like I bathed in it even though I only put on a little.
sexy and sophisticated
Cant wear it everyday, too over powering
Black Orchid has managed to stay both incredibly popular and equally controversial despite the fact that it has been around for more than a decade now. It seems like everyone and their mother and sissy has worn or at least tried to wear it, and it either suits you to a T or it kicks you to the curb. I used to hate it; it made me question every decision I ever made in my life that led to the moment I first smelled it. Then I got over that and O haven’t looked back since. Part of the problem was that I was never sure what I was smelling. There’s so much going on with this perfume that my nose and brain went crazy trying to understand it—cucumber? Chocolate? Wenge Wood? Chestnut? Hedione? And this is seriously a mainstream perfume? Was it the new Angel or just a kitchen sink cash grab? Something changed, or I guess I changed, and one day I realized that I loved it. The secret, I think, is a very fresh and un-grassy Vetiver—and I am a fiend for Vetiver. After years of searching for a Vetiver that doesn’t really smell like all the guys I’ve ever dated, I realized that it was there all along in that ribbed black bottle. I went through two whole Scentbird samples before I reached Enlightenment, but now that I’m here, I realize that it was worth the effort. What strikes me now about Black Orchid is how much it resembles some of the great (and mostly long lost) Donna Karan perfumes from back in the day—those dark, woodsy, highly individual scents that now cost a fortune, if you can even find them. They were idiosyncratic and nothing like the heavy floral or bright citrusy scents that everyone was wearing back in the 1990s. And I missed out on those. Tom Ford is a genius at reviving lost classics, and Black Orchid might be the best of them all. I can’t oversell this perfume. Again. I know everyone wore it and moved on, and I came very late to the party, but I’d urge anyone who either dismissed Black Orchid (like I did) or found something else to revisit it, because it has held up amazingly well. Nobody even tried to imitate it until SJP did Stash (which I also love, and which may have been my gateway drug back to Black Orchid), and there is room in the perfume world for both of them. If you’re reading this review, why not pick up a nice decant and see for yourself if Black Orchid’s time has come (again). Five stars. A modern classic. Original, unique. Inimitable, amazing quality, wearable as heck despite its weirdness. Plus smooth Vetiver. And it’s fantastic for guys too.
One of my favorite scents.
I randomly chose this, but am so glad i did. It's rich & heavy, but has a floral tone (which I normally would hate). I get so many compliments on it too. Just today a salesman at a car dealership stopped me to ask what i was wearing. Try it!
LOVE LOVE LOVE

I really regretted getting this perfume as it did not smell good or sit well with me or any one in my household. I do not recommend to anyone.
smelled too masculine for a woman
Love this scent! Deep but feminine.
Good flirty adult scent
Like it, love Black Noir better though

I didn't get a chance to even use this one. The bottle was empty, forsome reason it was leaking. I get 3 a month so by the time I got to it, it was empty. And I do keep them sitting up right.

I ordered this perfume by accident but my wife loves it. haha.
