Reviews of Black Orchid

This is really attractive. Dark seductive fruity floral patchouli mix. I like the blend, it just melds all together. Performance is giant. Last all day. Projects prerty hard. Leans feminine. Could probably be worn by the right man. Smells like good quality. Doesnt drastically change.

Loud, syrupy-sweet, feminine floral opening. I also get plenty of chocolate-vanilla, maybe tuberose. Later into the drydown, it becomes a soft, sweet, powdery, wood scent that is more unisex, pleasant and seductive.

Performance is excellent with big projection and 9-10 hour longevity.

The opening is rich and complex. Orange and bergamot add a fresh side, but the main thrust is dark floral, with jasmine, gardenia and whiffs of oleander givens a shadowy tone from the orchid that gives this creation its name.

The drydown adds a fruity touch of redcurrent, combined with a peppery and spicy undertone; the latter with a good incense aroma that adds an oriental vibe.

Further into the base a tonka-based sweetness develops, quite rich and creamy at times. A dork patchouli also develops, a soft patchouli without any significant harshness or sharpness. Cocoa features at times too, and I detect and nonspecific woodsiness towards the end.

I get strong sillage, excellent projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

A rich autumnal creation, good day and night, at times a touch generic but otherwise complex enough to provide good olfactory entertainment. 3.25/5.

I would not say bad about this fragrance however it is more for a mature audience. Anyone under 30 may not want to pull this off. It is a floral composition, strong and have fantastic projection. Looking at the notes would somewhat give away the kinda fragrance that it would be. The scent is linear and does not change its appearance. Do not attempt to over spray as it is rich and will be cloying.

Cloying horror.

Absolutely love this fragrance. The jasmine and gardenia notes are ever present especially initially. As I wear the scent longer spicy notes push through with very pleasing notes of amber, patchouli and sandalwood. It is a strong, yet not overwhelming fragrance that is enticing and sexy. It is a perfect fragrance for a romantic evening out or a sensual evening in. Long lasting and mysterious. This is one of my favorite perfumes to date.
