How they explain it:
‘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, honey and run.’
How I explain it (In my humble opinion)
I whiffed this at the airport just before christmas on my way to France and with one sniff I was hooked. You could say….addicted? The first word that comes to mind is ‘Sexy’.
Then there’s…Dark, powerful, oriental, mysterious, musky, sweet and feminine. One would probably use this for night time but I use it in the day too because why not?
Since wearing it out and about I’ve had quite a few people compliment me on it and ask what I’m wearing (Including Nic from Pixiwoo – yey!)
Its not cheap, but is of sublime quality and it is probably the longest-lasting perfume I own.

Top Notes: Honey, Rum, Bergamot, Mandarin Orange
Heart Notes: Jasmine, rose oil, orchid, orange blossom, magnolia, heliotrope, narcissus, magnolia
Base Notes: Vanilla, Myrrh, Suede, Sandalwood, Labdanum, Balsam
It is my go-to. It gives me the bit of oomph I need in the morning to get things done, it gives me a confidence boost and it’s great for nights out.
Go give it a sniff!
