Reviews of Velvet Orchid

On me, this is a more floral, powdery version of Tom Ford Black Orchid. I sometimes like to layer the two, a swipe of my Black Orchid rollerball with a spritz of Velvet on top gives me the unique punch of Black Orchid with the soft, floral prettiness of Velvet. Whereas I find Black Orchid sizzling, striking and sexy, perfect for a night out, I find Velvet Orchid soft and comforting, the kind of scent I like to snuggle into during the day.

A lighter, more bitter, less sweet version of black orchid. It’s also more floral. Very good nonetheless, but smelling both together, one on each wrist, my heart falls for black orchid.

Very similar to Black Orchid. A little boozier on top. I like the suede note. It gives it a little more edge, than BO. This is a little more toned down, than Black Orchid. Very creamy after a few hours. Overall it is a rich, floriental. I wouldn't refuse it, if someone gave me a free bottle.

The seduction of a desert sunset:a warm breeze in the air giving a feeling of well being.VELVET ORCHID is inspired by fantastic BLACK is a true anthem of femininity,luxury and mystrey.the perfume is ideal for mature woman who choose models from TF collection and enjoy style and spirit of FORD of the best feminine perfumes in this year. Voluptuous,Oriental,Velvety,Intense, Sophisticated,Complex,Warm,Deep and Irresistible.

For this new feminine creation,TF explore the extreme sensuality of sexy orchid note.he has wrapped the voluptuous character of another's flowers like rose, jasmine, magnolia and heliotrope which add tothe femininity of the heart.the base is velvety due toaccords sandalwood,vanilla and suede to arouse the addiction and warmth and to create an irresistible olfactive trail.a great perfume for a ferless woman who she wants tomake a great impression.


Longevity?Very Good onmy skin.

This is very recognisably Black Orchid's younger sister, but much more creamy & tropical. l don't really notice any fruity notes. l think it's completely gorgeous, & l think many might find it more wearable, if a little more feminine than BO. Now l have to decide whether l can justify owning both!

Wore a sample of this today and have decided it is not just for me. It just seems to be a perfume that doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. It seems like so many things were thrown together to make this that it has no true definition. I'll have to pass on this one.
