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?

Wonderfully boozy and charming
Woody, floral, and boozy feeling, this is best for evenings and events. Very bold and complex. If you are hesitant to try out velvet orchid because of your experience with black orchid, don't be. They smell related, but this scent is much easier to wear and nicer around the edges.

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!

Little too Mature for me
It was certainly lighter than Black Orchid was. It was still a little too heavy and musky for me. My Co-worker however thinks it is very luxurious and is sold for life.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very Strong, Lasts Forever, Many Compliments
Phew! This is a STRONG scent!! You really need one or two sprays, and this lasts almost all day. I really do not like it when I first spray it on, and for the next hour or so after, but once it settles in it is so beautiful. This is the perfume I get compliments on all the time, "you smell really good!" I was surprised by the first couple of compliments because I was thinking, "this smells terrible!" yet it never fails to bring the compliments. This is very elegant, very strong, spicy - nothing sweet, clean or fresh about it. Oriental, date night, winter, evening.

Similar to Black Orchid
At first this wasn't appealing to me as much as Black Orchid, even though it smelled similar. Then it mellowed into a dark, sensuous floral. It definitely smells distinct, but has a similar scent to Black Orchid. It's more spicy and powdery than Black Orchid, but with the same vanilla orchid profile.

Great Scent!
I wanted to try something a little out of my comfort zone, so I picked Tom Ford Velvet Orchid and I am very pleased with this scent. It doesn?t take but a spray or two. It is perfect for a woman in her early thirties.....it?s not really mature smelling, but is more of a grown up smell. I?m 33 and my hubby and I love it!! ??

Rich and Seductive
The scent is overpowering in the air, but melts onto my skin like silk. The front notes are floral orchid, giving way to vanilla, musk, and powder. Over time, the orchid backs off from primary scent, but remains complexly layered. This is a strong scent that is romantic, sexy, and seductive. I love it and so does my boyfriend.

Sexy
It initially is a very strong scent, but it warms up with the heat of the body and softens. It isn?t a fragrance for the faint of heart but, if you can handle being noticed this is a scent to try. Tom Ford knows how to help you feel sexy by just wearing a fragrance.

Not for the faint of heart
This is a very refined scent. It is strong, musky, and has almost a powdery finish. As most Tom Ford scents, it is complex so I do not believe this scent is for everyone. If you don't like musk or strong scents, I'd definitely recommend staying away from this one. Personally, this is one of my favorites and a great counterpart to the unisex Black Orchid Tom Ford cologne that I originally fell in love with.

STRONG
I am a fragrance girl ALL the way! I simply LOVE fragrances of all kinds... Especially unisex scents, so I'm used to strong perfumes. I Love Tom Ford, but this particular scent is not my favorite. It is very strong, but still kinda nice. I like something about it. It takes awhile to tone down which is both a good & bad thing. I would wear this fragrance as a sample, but not 100% sure if I would purchase the full bottle.

Disappointed since it?s Tom Ford
I was disappointed because the Scent was supposed to arrive before Christmas and didn?t get to my until 12/30. It was even more disappointing when I smelled Tom Ford Velvet orchid. I Did not like this scent. It was very musky, it was very strong usually I don?t mind strong scents but strong an musky was horrible. It has a powdery finish too and I hate powder scents. It actually smells like a Rihanna perfume I bought before. Nothing special about it I will probably try to give it away.

?
I didn't get Velvet Orchid until December 29th, which was frustrating because it was supposed to be here before Christmas, so I could try it and see if I liked it enough to buy it. Either way, I was given Black orchid as a gift for Christmas by accident. I haven't tried that one yet but I hear mixed reviews. Velvet however is a sexy, night time fragrance. I wore it to a birthday party last night and I could smell it on me the entire time. It comes off very strong when first sprayed but dries down to a dark, deep, scent that smells of vanilla and sweet rum. It stayed on for a long time and lasts on your clothes forever. I thought I had made a bad choice when I first sprayed it but I love how mature and sweet it has become. I'm 25 years old and I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone any younger.
