    One of those perfumes that I shouldn't like, but somehow do.

    For Voile de Fleur, Tom Ford borrows Guerlain's signature boozy cherry and throws it on top of a juicy tropical fruit punch of mostly pineapple and mango. This would be fairly saccharine on its own, but it's cleverly poised on a bed of coconut juice and waxy tropical flowers (my best guess is that it's largely ylang, but with enough other florals to give it a pinch of that powdery white flower accord and some vanilla for added creaminess).

    I actually prefer Voile De Fleur over the original Black Orchid (though not listed as such here, it's a flanker) because I like VDF's waxy florals more than BO's weird minty fruity indoles. But while they don't really smell alike, they're very much in the same spirit, and VDF is just as nuclear-strong as Black Orchid.

    VDF is very much a nightclub fragrance to me. It's strangely unisex in the same way as the original Black Orchid, a sort of wild scream for attention (in a good way, though) that mocks gender. Have you ever seen a faux queen? It's a natural woman who impersonates a drag queen in nightclubs, wherein she revels in a sort of mock femininity that's so over-the-top that it transcends gender and leaves everyone confused. That's what both Black Orchid and Voile de Fleur smell like to me, something so ridiculously over-the-top feminine that it no longer fits on a regular woman, the perfume equivalent of a crazy fruit hat or a ball gown encrusted in those little disco ball mirrors.

    Plums are very seductive fruits and they do not get any more sensuous than they do here in BOVdF. They are dark, opulent, and slyly sinister here. I am over the moon in love with Tom Fordís misunderstood boozy villain. This villain in velvets also brings gardenias to woo its prey in the cloak of darkness. Its drydown is consistently dark and dense, with heady fruits and berries, spicy sandalwood, and loads of amber and patchouli. Compared to its older sibling, Black Orchid, this is a lighter, effervescent version but itís still heavy hitter with a secret double life.

    This is a dense cloak of a fragrance with sillage that announces, ďThe wearer has left the building.Ē It is certainly a fragrance with a bullhorn! Very much like anyone with a bullhorn, this fragrance is unconcerned with offending others, though it has the potential to do so. I know Iíll be wearing this the next time I go bar-hopping in Downtown L.A. BOVdF was made for upscale nightlife and devil-may-care urban adventures.

    A more contemporary and milky sort of aldehydic blend of Paris YSL, †Coco Chanel and original Black Orchid. The combination of white flowers (starring the gardenia on the side of honeysuckle), coconut, milk, vanilla ,cinnamon,sandalwood and patchouli produces a very radiant and milky-floral-spicy kind of smell just partially shadowed by a toned down Black orchid, dark fruits and pepper. The last impresses dustiness in order to give more consistence to the notable volatility of the gassy smell. The beginning is made of citrus and exotic fruits that tend to fade soon in the middle of the floral and milky exhalations. The gaseous effect is enhances by a touch of black truffles and spices together with aldehydes while the tastiness is enhanced †by the combination of milk and coconut. Radiant and sophisticated but lacking of mistery and complexity. Better than the †original Black Orchid but i don't rave for this fragrance.

    A sophisticated tuberose floral composition. Nice if you like tuberose, great if you're into an affected and mannered kind of elegance. Too much for me, sorry!

    Just gorgeous- black orchid tends to devolve after the beautiful opening whereas voile de fleur does not. The sillage is incredible and persistent. Other than the note of violet in the opening it's very similar to black orchid so it would be redundant to own both (for me anyway). It's definitely more of a feminine fragrance.
