Orchid Rum Honey Vanilla Myrrh
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.

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 so powerful it took four all-star perfumers (Yann Vasnier, Calice Becker, Antoine and Shyamala Maisondieu) to complete it, and 20 separate notes to pronounce it on the skin. Velvet Orchid is not a perfume; it’s a fever dream of boozy spice, heavy-lidded florals and enough resinous smoke to blot out the sun. But if you’re a Tom Ford fan, you wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Gothic head trip begins with bright rays of mandarin and bergamot, which are stealthily eclipsed by a woozy blend of honey and rum. The opening is slow, re-a-al slow, with endless time for that honey-soaked rum to saturate your senses.

After several minutes, this fragrance stretches out into an endless floral horizon of magnolia and orange blossoms, Moroccan roses, two types of orchids, heliotrope and jasmine. Velvet Orchid’s wild, tangled heart is overflowing with citrusy powder, creamy almond, and ripe, heavy white floral flourishes. And the heart’s beat is still very slow – one thing you’ll notice immediately about this scent is how long each phase takes to move on to the next. Velvet Orchid is operating in ultra-slow motion.

When the dry down finally arrives, it’s as dark as the florals were a hurricane of white flowers. A cloister of smoky resins hangs suspended in the base of this scent. Peru balsam and labdanum at their shiny, metallic best jump out immediately, constrained by a round, rich vanilla and sweet sandalwood. A suede accord spiked with myrrh smooths out the sharp metallic edges, without losing any of their power. The dry down in this fragrance is enormous, and will last well past dawn, as Velvet Orchid is clearly in its own time zone that has nothing to do with how we recognize passing hours.

So be warned: this perfume takes no prisoners but time. The opening, heart and base go on for many, many hours, and all the notes are deep and strong. If you want a perfume that will outlast the sun and the moon, Velvet Orchid awaits.

This was my first scent with scentbird. Based on the reviews I decided to try it, and I actually loved it. It's definitely not an everyday scent because it is pretty strong when you first spray it. But it does fade eventually while still lasting all day. I would say it's more of a special occasion spent and has warm tones. This is a scent that I would purchase for my collection.

This was my very first choice using ScentBird. It goes on way strong, so I would suggest one spray until you get used to it. I feel that it should have listed 'musk' as one of its profile scents. It reminds me of an older woman, but not 'mothball' old and last all day. I will continue to wear it, but not as an everyday scent and definitely not for confined spaces or long car rides.

Love this scent! My first shipment from Scentbird and am loving this concept. I am not one to wear a lot of perfume especially as it's frowned upon with my nursing job. This scent is pretty without being girly. It's mature without being too old lady. It does remind me a bit of my grandmother but she had great taste and always smelled amazing! The scent seems to last all evening (again I don't wear it much at all during the day). Also love the twist and spray container it comes in. Can't wait to order some extras in some of the pretty colors offered! All in all... I'm loving Velvet Orchid by Tom Ford and I'm loving Scentbird!

Wanted to love this but the initial is far too strong - it is overpowering like a flock of women wearing too much parfume at church on Sunday. It doesn't desolate and leave behind any notes either, it fades to nothing extremely fast. My least favorite so far.

This was my first month and I chose a Tom Ford scent because I have always wanted to experience this brand. I am so very glad the size is as big as it is. I really like it. Unless you are strictly a fresh or citrus girl this is one you should try. It is a sweet, woody start both floral and deep. Lovers of euphoria and the Chanel's will like this one.

This was a really nice perfume, slightly heavier than what I would have liked but it'll be nice for date nights, special occasions, etc. (But then again it's Tom Ford so I dont think I'd want an everyday perfume from him because it wouldn't be as special). It literally reminds me of warm sensuality that isn't too obvious

This is one of a kind scent. Very complex , rich fragrance, with gorgeous dry down and a full body of personality. This fragrance in my opinion is more suitable for evening wear, in cooler night. Club, Party, Red Carpet, you name it. I imagine a fabulous, empowered , sensual e intriguing woman wearing this. The notes that stand the most for me are the delicious Rum, honey, and the orchid note. This is a perfume when you up for some serious business honey. Absolutely Gorgeous Fragrance . Long lasting and excellent silage

The shipping was fast and efficient, like always! I love the scent, it's definitely an evening perfume for a dinner or a date. The scent is very strong, and I don't think I would be wearing this in the daytime, especially not in summer! It has a hint of musk, but it's also sweet. The mixture makes it so neither one of the 2 is overpowering. I LOVE this perfume!

This one to me isn't horrid but it just wasn't my cup of tea. It is a bit muskier than I would like. It had the smell of a strong baby powder. It was very over powering. A little goes a long way with this scent. I would not buy this for myself or for a gift either. Just me.

I am something of a perfume whore so to speak I particularly and fond of all the French sense with a few Gucci and Versace thrown in ,when I got this Tom Ford perfume I absolutely fell in love what can I say but intoxicating ,absolutely intoxicating .It's hard to pick a favorite when you keep sending so many wonderful ones. But what an unbelievable way to try fragrances from all over the world and find what you like for a mere $15 a bottle such a deal cannot be beat.

Intense floral perfumes can sometimes give me a headache, and this one tiptoed the line pretty close. It IS pretty smelling, but definitely has that intense "perfumey" scent that makes it smell SEPARATE from you, not as if it's a part of you, if that makes sense. I think I would only find this appropriate for a fancy date night, personally.

OMG! I'm so loving this scent! Very soft flowery but a hint of a musk scent. It goes GREAT with the weather I'm having in Chicago,IL. It last ALL day! And when I walk in my work office. Everyone says: Who's smelling so good? I know I will be purchasing this in a bigger size bottle! A Big thumbs up to Tom Ford on "Velvet Orchid"!💯❤️

My favorite from Scentbird so far! I wore it all winter, and I think it especially suits the colder months. It's warm and cozy, but not foody at all. It's floral without smelling like a literal garden. It's like the feeling you get when you drink a good whiskey or a glass of red wine in the winter. Warm and relaxed and snuggly.

I received a sample of Orchid Soleil from Sephora, and wanted a larger spray. It wasn't on here, so I put this one from the Orchid line in the queue and was not disappointed. I tend to go for more sweet, floral scents, and not so much musk, so I was surprised I loved the Orchid Soliel as much as I did. I love this one even more, It's light, still has musky notes, but a very beautiful "date night" scent. I get compliments from strangers every time I wear it.

Vanilla, creamy, boozy, (SLIGHTLY) powdery rose..YUM! Tom Fords Velvet Orchid is a winner in my book. Not as complex as the juice from his Private Collection (Tobacco Vanille is my all-time fav!) and the the DNA from Black Orchid is ever present here; just more floral. She has just enough substance that VO can hold her own. Thumbs up!

This fragrance goes on very powdery and citrusy, then mellows out to a warm vanilla with some florals and a touch of that citrus. Heady and sensual, it reminds me a lot of Black Amethyst (from Bath and Bodyworks, of all places!), which was always my favorite, so that was a pleasant surprise. Taking off one heart for the weird powdery start, but otherwise, this fragrance is a knockout!

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

I did not like this one at all. Its really strong and smells like something my grandmother would wear. If you like stronger more musky smells its for you.
