Reviews of Orchid Soleil

I wish I could give this five stars, because it smells absolutely gorgeous. Tuberose, pepper... creamy, nutty, with a skanky white floral backdrop that only smells sexier and more indisputably feminine the hotter and sweatier the wearer gets.
But, it needs to last a whole lot longer. I feel the need to carry this about and reapply, which for the price (and it being a TF) is mightily annoying.
I sprayed this in a store more than a year ago and was immediately transfixed. My fume-virgin partner was equally impressed. When I found I was still thinking about it a year later, I finally got a bottle. I know I'm going to be repurchasing this one every summer.
Layer with Guerlain Terracotta, to brighten. On hot days, it's Terracotta by day, and Orchid Soleil by night.

Oh so good. I sprayed it randomly when I went through a duty free shop and I was wearing Tubéreuse Couture by Parfumerie Générale, which is one of my favorite fragrances. This one is sweeter. It has less tuberose, although it is well present. I love it even better than this favorite of mine.

Buttery, nutty, creamy. Not quite a floral. Almost gourmand. Too sweet for a woody scent. It's perfectly mysterious and quirky. Massive tuberose.

Indelicate, inapposite white floral. Full-figured tuberose is as enticing as ever. Normally the appeal of an overpowering composition is that it blankets you with its thick, impenetrable veil. Verges on the sensation of a physical unguent, slathered across your person. Inside the indolic haze, you feel as if you've been scouted out and marked by some base animal.

Orchid Soleil is somewhat true to this sensation of oppressive luxury, yet remains oddly light on its feet. The standard plushness has been set aflame, vaporized into a thousand fine motes, suspended across a glittering satin curtain. Its showiness has worn itself out on me, admittedly, but there's something fascinating going on here that someone else might just choose to adopt as a mainstay.

*After repeated wears, I have become aware of a deeply unpleasant plastic note that almost wholly negates my heaping praise. To most, it probably appears a minor misstep, but nevertheless one I can't abide. Consider the vision of a wedding dress maculated by a few material defects. The fantasy either coheres, or doesn't. Orchid Soleil's joyeuse is starting to look a little shabby around the edges, so I must be scrupulous if schizoid and downgrade my rating to neutral.*

This was very much not for me- it's just so huge and opulent. I think it was nicely done, if a little overdone to my nose- the lush, slightly overripe white floral is intense in the metallic open and doesn't settle down for ages.

At no time should a fragrance smell like plastic. Initial opening is plastic mixed with some floral which the plastic scent is giving me a headache. Other Tom Ford frag like cafe rose, jasmin rouge and square bottles etc are amazing, but the ones that are similar to this bottle just isn't working.

Time tested: winter
Point: 2/10 (the 2 points are for creativity and the courage to market plastic scent).
