Description
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid is an oriental floral that evolves the carnal grandeur and seductive power of the iconic Tom Ford black orchid into an uber-feminine fragrance lavished with notes of cool citrus, dramatic petals, suede accord, and vanilla. Rich, spicy, and intensely floral, it evokes a warm exotic garden. The slim and elegant bottle is enhanced with bold vertical texture and the signature brass nameplate.

This is a very luxurious and mature scent. It's very floral with a powdery undertone. I don't love this one, but it's not awful either. It reminds me of some of the classic scents that have been worn for decades like coco. Not that it smells like that, but it evokes the same classic luxurious vibe. This strikes me as a fall/winter fragrance.

initially - i disliked it. At first spray it is an instant overwhelming powdery smell. Within about 20 minutes.. it softens and you get a the heart notes coming through - some wood, light citrus. My favorite part of this scent appears after about an hour, hour and a half. It's just beautiful. It's still heavy and a VERY dominating scent. When I spray I only use about a half spray on each wrist and a half spray on my décolletage. I would use this as a signature scent since it's very different. People will notice it. It's not a great one for the office though, especially if you have other people wearing perfumes as well, i don't think it will play nicely with most "office" scents. DEFINITELY worth adding to your queue - it will grow on you after the first few days. I will be buying a full size bottle for my winter stash <3

Initially I liked the scent as I tend to like a deep scent note. However after awhile the only thing I could smell was patchouli. It is the inky scent that lingered. I had to use sparingly

I love Tom Ford Black Orchid. Good strong heavy winter party perfume. Sweet cologne for men who wear sweet heavy fragrances. Velvet Orchid, on the other hand, is way too much Orchid. Only buy if you are really into Orchid.

I normally love heavy, heady, spicy, sexy scents but this is so overpowering with none of the sweet notes of vanilla to tone it down. I can't wash this off and smell it for a full day after showering. I wouldn't mind but it's just too overpoweringly floral and musky without a stronger vanilla basenote.

I selected this as it did not carry my usual fresh, sweet, citrusy, or powdery scent preference, however, I must say I LOVE THIS SCENT! It's warm, mysterious, and has excellent lasting power as I could still smell it ever so faint on my skin 12 hours later. A permanent new addition to my selection when I want to switch up from the usual.

This has got to be my 2nd most Fabulous Fragrance I've received! It is for the Sophisticated Lady! I smell the Jasmine, Vanilla & Sandalwood! It comes off a bit powerful like a woman in charge & mellows out by the end of the day! When she let's her hair down & puts her feet up! I think it's for cooler weather & perhaps an evening out on the town! (But I wear what I like depending on my mood and time of day or season!) I can't wait to try Tom Ford's..... Black Orchid too!

Very unique scent. It definitely has the top note of the orchid but has the other layers that I enjoy. This is a more intense, floral-y scent than I normally wear but it is growing on me. I really like the dry down. One spritz will do and it had great staying power. I like the softness and warmth that come later after I have worn this for a couple hours. Glad I tried it.

For October this Tom Ford scent is listed as the scent that I received but I actually received Elie Saab Le Parfum. This scent smelled so much like the Elie Saab Le Couture that I received in September. Its a bit of a lighter scent but almost exactly alike. Its decent but does not stand out in any way. I think I will give it to my mom since it's kinda light.

I love this. I wasn't sure at first because there was an unusual, almost fruity smell when you first spray it but that diffuses quickly and you get a beautiful orchid scent. It is long lasting and bold. If you are looking for something to replace "baby soft" in your wardrobe or something that barely clings to you, this is not it. This is a womanly scent, not a girly one.

This perfume is seriously strong. It's not something I can wear to the office- it's definitely a date night perfume. Other than being strong, it is very floral, and has a deep, rich dry down that I can't quite pinpoint. I know it works well with my chemistry, yet I'm not entirely sold on it. Curious to see the difference between this and Black Orchid.

Great Autumn/Winter floral. The sillage of Velvet Orchid is good for the first 90 minutes then becomes more of a skin scent on me. Great lasting power on my skin, which makes scents disappear, over 6 hours. Oriental floral with a bit of musty tobacco, a splash of rum and a whiff of spice.

Vintage Vamp. This is a bold statement fragrance and is likely not for the youth. At initial spray it is a strong gourmand floral, but the dry down melts into a (adequately named) velvet spice. The myrrh really shines through at the bottom end of this. This scent is erotic and bold, and yet a tamed down little sister to the Black Orchid.

Waaaaay too overpowering of a scent for me. I sprayed this on my arm (one spray) and within seconds I was overwhelmed with the strength of this scent. I thought, like others, that it smelled "old lady-ish" and decided to wash it off. Unfortunately, even after a good lathering of soap and hot water the scent had barely diminished. Within 5 minutes I had a massive headache and tried to remove the scent with alcohol and a several cotton pads. 10 minutes later the scent was still lingering and I was starting to feel nauseous, so I ended up taking a shower and SCRUBBING my arm. I'm not typically sensitive to smells so this really took me by surprise. I love Tom Ford Black Orchid but the velvet orchid is an absolute NO for me.

The whole reason I signed up for Scentbird was bc I've recently been inspired to try something new & explore more sophisticated fragrances. Velvet Orchid is certainly sophisticated, and definitely not for a younger woman. It's very strong & powdery when 1st sprayed, but sweetens more & more as it wears. I only spray twice, once on wrists & once on the nape of the neck. Actually I wish the the pump sprayed less, so I could do a half spray on each area. The initial fragrance is a little too strong for me, but I really do love it as it gets sweeter. I imagine wearing this to work when I want to feel a bit more boss lady. Also, I think this fragrance definitely suits the colder weather & perfect during the holidays. Overall, I'm impressed & glad that I got to try a $120 award-winning perfume for $15! I would consider purchasing the full size in the future, but for now I'm still on my fragrance exploration. ✈

Still on the fence about this one. The orchid is extremely floral and amber-y, and both are scents I typically don't wear. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it, but I don't like the smell on me until it's dried down for about an hour. It's very warm and sweet and doesn't seem to linger for more than a few hours. It's wearable and a people pleaser, but not my thing.

Velvet Orchid smells very much like Calvin Klein Euphoria mixed with Angel by Thierry M. I don't think it smells good on me but I'm not giving up on it yet lol. I do love it in the bottle and it has great staying power. It's still warm here in Tennessee so I think I will like it better when it gets colder. I think I will like Black Orchid better!

Tom Ford's Private Collection scents are rich and luxurious - I wish you would offer them on ScentBird - but many of his "mainstream" perfumes are a bit ordinary and overpowering at the same time. Not so with this one. My favourite of his mainstream scents. Rich and long lasting without being overpowering. Strong floral, but dry down is more fresh. Beautiful.

This was not only my first Scentbird perfume, but it was my first Tom Ford fragrance as well. I tried this solely based on reviews and I'm so happy I did. My usual scent profile differs alot from the notes in this perfume, but because of the complexity of everything in this fragrance, I loved it instantly. So many different scents are present that the only thing I can really pinpoint is the powdery dry-down. It's not a baby powder smell either, it's much more sophisticated than that. It's also long-lasting and a real head turner. I can't wait to try Black Orchid next. Tom Ford has a fan for life!

This scent is incredible! At first, I thought it was too strong, but I got numerous compliments. As it setttled, the scent got better. I love all things Tom Ford and this fragrance is no exception.

This is one of the only perfume descriptions that I've actually agreed with. Everything that is advertised above is true. This is my go-to date night scent. It's extremely feminine, sexy, and bold. If you are looking for a mature, enticing fragrance, you found it. It's confidence in a bottle.

I love this fragrance and sometimes i find certain fragrance smells good in the bottle, however it doesn't smell so great on me. i love your concept for people that can't afford to waste money on fragrance that just doesn't work out for them..

It smells great but the scent doesn't last unlike the original Tom Ford.
