    Voile de Fleur by Tom Ford

    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.
