Description
Orchid?s sweet smoothness is the centerpiece in this decadent, dark floral. Top notes of honey and rum seep into a lush tropical jungle of opulent orchids and jasmine. Turkish roses and orange blossom add light floral accents before the swooning base of smoky labdanum and Peru balsam extends its velvet shadow.

Tom Ford Velvet Orchid description

Tom Ford?s fragrances are intense, moody, and sensual. They are done in a style that is as bold as can be, with each note polished to its fullest, most lacquered profile. If you want to keep things on the down low, scent-wise, this is not the line for you. Tom Ford is for extroverts who live for large gestures and decadent drama.

Velvet Orchid is no different. This is a scent?

A bit biased but I like it!!!!
It's a strong, bold, feminine but not fru fru scent. It's a very quality scent but my only issue with it is the cost for the full size purchased, although it's amazing it's not worth it for $180

Maybe just not for me.
After reading the description, I believed that this could be my date night scent. But after sniffing the nozzle, I knew it would be too strong for me. I could only smell the strong floral notes at first whiff, but I was hoping to smell the vanilla. Wanting to give it a chance anyway, I applied it today. And while it was still a bit strong for my liking, it does smell better on me than it does in the bottle. I thought it had a nice, "grown woman" sophistication to it once the stronger notes died down. But my daughter told me I smelled like the older ladies at church. Now I'm afraid to wear it for date night. I do know it's definitely not one you'd want to wear everyday.

Not for me at all
Sounded like I would love from the description. I was trying to break from my normal scents. Very mature and powdery with my chemistry. I gave it away. Did not like it at all.

Velvet orchid is a fragrance that has perfect balance of light floral, sweet vanilla, dark balsamic, soft spicy tones. This blend is very silky, smooth, really well balanced.

I love it
This isn?t a daytime scent! You will make a statement in the office. It is on the stronger side of most of the scents I use. The sweet under tones took over with my body?s chemistry; so if you?re not into sweet then this scent will bother you. It?s not a muted smelling perfume, so if you don?t like a strong scents you may wanna pass. This is one of my evening favorites. Woodys, sweet, vanilla?ish, very aromatic smell.

Too strong for me
The scent itself smells good, but it?s way too potent for me. I normally spray perfume right on to my skin and it?s fine, but with this one I would spray the area in front of me (1-2 sprays) and walk through it, and I would still feel like I was choking on it all day. Not a bad perfume, just too strong for me personally.

This scent smells divine. I prefer to use this when I feel like being a boss (grown) or romantic (sexy)! Love the spice notes and it's not overwhelming. This scent is very subtle but lingers for a long time. Great for an evening out or feeling confident at work!

Tom Ford Velvet Orchid
Way too strong for me. Reminds me of my Aunt Peggy who is about 80. She's a mixture of incense, weed, wine and SADE. Which doesn't sound bad, until you spray this, get a major headache and can't wash it off. I prefer lighter scents like Versace Bright Crystal. Won't wear Velvet Orchid again. Ever

This smells so so good, I was pleased with how it was described on the website/how that translated to when I smelled it. The scent does not last very long on me however. I would probably not buy the full sized version of this scent, but for this month I will continue to use it.

Yummy! But not for me
I love this one, but it just sits weird on me. The only draw back is that it is too syrupy for me, so it comes off as a tad bit cloying. But other than that I'd highly recommend it. It's a really unique and well blended perfume. Maybe it will be better on someone else's skin. Just didn't work for mine.

Strong, sexy fragrance
This fragrance has presence. It projects well and has longevity so apply carefully. I put it on at night and can still smell a hint of it in the morning. It has a dark, complex musky scent, definitely an evening perfume. It has a lot of similarities to Bond No. 9's Nuits de Noho perfume so if you like that, this one has a slightly softer edge to it that you will enjoy.

Comes smelling expired
I've finally found it. You know women with that ancient smelling perfume? I always thought it was the smell of expired perfume. Turns out this is the culprit. It's very strong and offensive. It almost makes me upset because you can smell this little floral note struggling to get put but that expired old smell overpowers anything good about this perfume. Who the heck buys this?

One of the best I've tried from SB! Strong honey and dark rum open then pineapple and other sweet fruits and flowers. The drydown unfortunately has a kind of ballpoint ink smell that I have had with other perfumes but unable to find out what causes it..but that sweetens up afterwards

You can always tell a Quality Tom Ford Lux Fragrance there?s none of the Alcohol that?s in cheap fragrances. They are always complex, brooding, mysterious, and sultry. I get why everyone loves this fragrance now. Tom Ford is definitely for the Strong Sophisticated Woman that can Own a Luxury Scent. I?ll purchase the large bottle and I?ll keep this in que ,it lasts for HOURS on me and I received too many Compliments to count

Granny takes baby to the office in a mink coat!
For those of us who remember being choked out by spraying your grandmother's perfume this will bring back the sensation. At first when spraying the aroma is very strong and then afterward it becomes luxurious and has a faint powder room type appeal to it. I sprayed this scent on a shirt I wear at home and after cooking, sleeping and chucking it in the dirty close bin I pulled it out to wash today and it still smells grand three days later. Definately a scent for the busy woman.

Like many, I tried Black Orchid before trying this one. Black Orchid was great at first, but I quickly grew tired of it. I also smelled a lot older than would ever want... Velvet Orchid on the other hand I could not get enough of!! It?s basically black Orchid, but with a significantly smaller amount of spice. Perfect for everyday when you live in the city!

I love Tom Ford fragrances, but this one did not work for me. It is extremely overpowering with a fake, stagnant tuberose, "old lady" smell. There has never been a fragrance I've tried in 30+ years that I've wiped off. This was the only one. It was awful.

I?m in love
So, I actually got this after reading other reviews and was super nervous. I sprayed once on my wrist and as I was smelling it I was disappointed because the scent was so strong. After about a minute I started smelling something sweet and elegant and I sniffed my again and was just in awe. The scent for me lasted about two hours or so and that?s my only complaint. Definitely an every day smell for me. It?s one that you kinda just have to try out for yourself.

Very Mature Scent
This scent smelled like it belonged on a mature woman who works in an office-type setting. It reminded me of my mom who is almost 60 (that is a good thing), it was just a bit to strong for my personality. I'm also a 5th grade teacher. One of my students said, "You smell so good...just like my grandmother!" So...I gave it to my mom.

Sexy and nice. It is a bit heavy at first so you only need to spray it once. Good for a romantic night out, reminds me of a sexy,alluring night out in heels and a mink...and the man will get mesmerized in your scent dancing up close. Later that evening, Black Orchid. This is a upclose and personal, lure him in scent.

TF Velvet Orchid
When I first smelled this I though "Oh no!" It reminded me of Dior Poison from the late 80's and early 90's. Almost sickly sweet, strong, and heady. BUT... I tried it anyway and was pleasantly surprised!! It really mellowed out after about 10 mins AND IT LASTED ALL DAY!! It is strong, so I recommend spraying below the neck. I sprayed my belly twice and that was enough. 3 Sprays maybe for a date night, but 2 was enough for the day. You smell the orchid and the Rum for sure, and also vanilla and honey-but mixed together, not separate. Almost like a rumcake and flowers Lol if that makes sense. Definitely a bold scent.

strong, but really like it
I can see how people say this is "old grandma" but it smells younger to me than that. It has sweet notes that are balanced by its other notes so it isn't sickly sweet like some perfumes. I really like it, although it probably is not an everyday perfume. Used two sprays the first time, but will probably only use one next time.

Not for me
This was my first time trying a fragrance by Tom Ford. I tested the spray in the air, first. I was highly disappointed. I decided to give it a second try, actually spraying it on my skin. I wanted the fragrance to settle in with my natural oils. STILL A NO! It gave me a major head ache and smelled like something my grandma would wear. My mother loves it, though. She said it reminds her of a scent her gma wore when she was younger. ENOUGH SAID!

Pleasing but fairly ordinary scent
I don't find much in common between this flanker and black orchid. I detect none of the almost licorice dominant notes of the original, and obviously none of its heavy unusual monstrosity. It has mild to moderate projection and much more nominal longevity, probably around 3 to 4 hours. I could swear I saw a reviewer elsewhere comment on its similarity to Bath and Body (Japanese?) Cherry Blossom, and I think this is a near dupe. For those that care, I received zero compliments, complaints or questions. My boyfriend said nothing and he is quite opinionated regarding fragrances, if he likes it he winds up wearing it and definitely comments if he dislikes it (only Mugler Alien so far, sadly). I wore it probably almost 3 dozen times, in both cold and warm weather, and layered a couple of times with other scents. None of that seems to affect much, but you can bury it easily with other louder power fragrances. In terms of notes, I'm not sure I can pick any out, it's maybe too much of a postmodern, fantasy accord-type fragrance. It reminds me of scents like CK Euphoria in that respect, with no exact photorealistic note to identify, more of a mish mash of somewhat synthetic, near gourmond impressions. But I will try my best-- I would definitely call this a sweet but not a cloying gourmond scent, not floral or spicy really at all. It makes me think of cashmeran actually, and it pretty much drowns out everything else. Maybe some traces of rum, honey, labdanum, suede and powder. It is very pleasant and relatively inoffensive however. It smells quality and not synthetic in a plasticky sickening kind of way. I would imagine that most who like Euphoria would like this frag, despite the relative unlikeness of the two. Basically I'm extremely bored of it, but I'm sure I could always get some use out of it if I had some around.

Rich floral fragrance
I'm a huge fan of Black Orchid, so was very keen to try this! I don't find it very similar to Black Orchid, it's more floral but so rich and warm smelling. Every now and again I get a waft of something similar to Black Orchid, but Velvet Orchid is unique in its own right. A sexy, rich floral that is quite intoxicating!

OMG! Fine as Wine
My first impression was this was going to be another Black Orchid, which I love! This smells more sweet of honey and I guess the rum shines through but without the alcohol. It smells amazing and this is something that I would wear from fall to the spring months so it can really shine through on those crisp cool days. Sillage is 10/10 and longevity 10/10 last about on me 10-12 hrs. Once again which is great!!

Velvet Orchid
I like the complexity and richness of this scent. But it's overwhelming, even with just a dab, and stays on FOREVER (as do all other perfumes from Tom Ford). I love the myrrh note, but in general it's just too strong for me. It makes me picture an older lady who drives a convertible, wears a fur coat and attends galas. Not for me.

A Bit Strong
So when I first sprayed on this perfume, I definitely thought it was a bit strong and as others have noted had a bit of a ?grandma smell,? however as it settled into my skin and the initial spray because weaker, it settled to a pleasant orchid scent. Overall, I wouldn?t buy the perfume by the bottle myself, but it will be nice for date nights and on occasions when I want something different.

It would be great fragrance for a date night or as a winter fragrance. I see this as a scent for a mature confident woman. It is strong scent and lasts forever.

Tom Ford is my favorite fragrance designer. His scents are very original and they are classy and expensive smelling and i always feel super sexy wearing his perfumes. Velvet Orchid is a perfect femme-fatale scent to wear to an excluaive event or date night. It can seem too strong or manly for some people but i love it. The scent is a bit spicy and powerful but it lingers so beautifully. I love smelling it in my hair or clothes the next morning. This scent is very sexy so go light with it.

Heavenly
When i first sprayed velvet orchid i liked it instantly. After about an hour i was in love with the fragrance. I usually like gourmands but this is a perfectly balanced blend of florals spice and smooth velvety sweetness. An evening or date night perfume. Probably best to wear in fall/winter although i will wear it any time of the year cause i like it that much. Its soft seductive sensual sexy and luxurious. A compliment getter. It lasts a good 6 hours. Not for teens. (I am 32 years old) I thought black orchid smelled nice but masculine not really my type of scent but i was able to appreciate it but this velvet orchid on the other hand is softer, smoother, more feminine, sweeter, and better than black orchid.

On the fence
I'm on the fence with this one. I enjoy parts of this fragrance, but I'm getting a overly musky scent that I don't like at all. I keep thinking I smell urine. Too difficult to enjoy the other notes. It has a slight powdery note, hence the "velvet". I don't normally like powdery scents, but this one is not bad at all in that regard. I prefer the original Black Orchid over this one.

WOW. Beautiful..
This scent is so beautiful. I was apprehensive because my last month's scent was a blind order and I hated it. It hits you with SO many things at once. I do not smell the bergamot really, I get a lot of the Jasmine and that's why I probably love this scent! It's definitely not for the faint of heart but not nearly as polarizing as I had imagined! It's truly.. velvety but there's a "rough" texture to it as well that I cannot put my finger on? Very feminine and bold!

Too much bite...
Velvet Orchid is definitely a sexy scent however it has a bit too much bite for me. I would like to have smelled the floral notes more but I felt overwhelmed by the sandalwood. I felt that this scent was too... mature... for me. It is definitely a winter scent that would not suit any other seasons. It opens very strong and musky but after an hour or two it does settle nicely. The disappointing part is that is seems to fade completely within a few hours.

I am in love with this fragrance. It's is strong and lasts and I can't get enough. Warm, sexy, spicy--perfect for the fall/winter months. 10/10 do recommend!

Expected results
I have yet to wear anything by TF that I have not liked! Pleased. I would request another but I?m anxious to try other scents.

Quite floral.
I loved black orchid, so I was looking forward to trying this one, but it was kind of meh. It's too floral for me. Reminds me of gardenia which I really REALLY don't like. It's an okay scent but not for me. It is long lasting, which is a pro if you like the scent. Lol. There have been a few days that I sprayed it in my hair and caught a few wisps of the scent throughout the day, and that was better than on skin/clothing.

Not for me!
The scent was long lasting which I really like in my perfumes. I liked the perfume but I didn't love it. The smell was to musky, and Smokey with not enough floral notes for me. Velvet Orchid was nice just not for me.

Eh... okay?
Starts off retirement home-y, but ends with a nice scent.

More manly than I'd like.
Not my kind of scent. It reminds me of a professor drinking scotch.

Not my favorite
Warm. Mature. Reminds me of muni grandmothers perfume that she only wears to church. It doesn?t smell bad...just not my style of perfume. I prefer clean scented perfumes that are very light and airy.

I'm a fan
I've been wearing this a few days and I definitely enjoy it. It goes on very very hard, and a little goes a long way - the musk, booze, and honey being very prevalent amidst the floral scent. It has great projection/sillage - and it definitely stands out. Smells expensive, but sensual. It's pretty sweet, but not -terribly- sweet, as there's enough complexity and boldness to mask it. Prettttty nice. I can't imagine using four sprays a day, though, so this is going to LAST.

Unique, powdery violet
I adore this scent, especially the violet note and powdery finish. It's a complex scent that can be worn anywhere, but if you're going to wear it to the office, a little goes a long way. It's long lasting and projects well. I'm so glad I tried it.

Expensive
Smells expensive for sure.. Tom Ford, duh! Very very nice for a date night, wedding, or something formal. I prefer floral classic smells, but this one was very nice.

Sophisticated
It's definitely an evening perfume that smell very expensive on. I would feel very comfortable wearing this perfume to a five star restaurant and an evening show.

I have a lot of people asking what is the name of this perfume. It also lasts a long time. I love it!!! Not too overpowering, it's just right for me.

I do not recommend wearing this around Sensitive noses. I used 2 sprays and received comments from everyone around me it was too heavy. Just watch how much you use!

This is my scent
OMG I love this scent. I feel mature and sexy when I wear it. It lasts for hours and if you spray it on clothes i'll last for days. It's deep but feminine with rich notes.

Don't be fooled by initial spray
When I first sprayed this... I thought it smelled awful and I was going to throw it away... Then later on in the day... It smelled amazing on me and is now one if my favorite perfumes... And it actually lasts on me for hours... Don't be fooled by the initial spray.... Let it dry down and you'll be pleasantly surprised!

Better than Expected but not totally my scent
I had heard that this scent was very sensual and sexy, and I suppose it is in a way. It smells like a more mature scent in my opinion for an older woman, but ?old lady? perfume! I think it smells ok, it is pleasant and lasts all day, but I tend to prefer much lighter scents.
