Velvet Orchid is Tom Ford’s new fragrance that is the feminine version of the iconic Black Orchid fragrance, and comes in glossy, dark purple version of the iconic Black Orchid flute glass bottle. It’s an incredibly seductive concotion of floral, woody and spicy notes that speaks strong sexy confidence.
The scent is a blend of Italian bergamot, Mandarin Orpur, ultra-purified rum extract and a creamy vanilla that gives a brilliant caramelised note that gives me visuals of leather skirts and louboutins. The base of the fragrance is intensely rich and warm thanks to the sandalwood and myrrh for a raw suede effect. To counter-balance the woody and spicy base, floral notes of jasmine, rose oil, orange blossom, and orchid bring out a rich nectar notes topped with magnolia and hyacinth for a touch of feminity.
After falling in love with the Jasmin Noir fragrance, it didn’t take much for my nose to be easily acquainted with Velvet Orchid which takes the definition of “strong and sexy” to a whole new territory. As for my husband and mum, they felt Velvet Orchid ventured into the territory of men’s fragrance! It’s so concentrated that a whiff at the nozzle is enough to send your mind wandering off to another place. It’s also really long lasting, so once spritz is all you need paired with a strong outfit to take it to whichever territory you wish.
