    Black Orchid by Tom Ford

    Oh, Buddha! Where do they come up with these names? The scent itself is like John Varvatos on steroids, possibly estrogen. Fruity and cloying with a pungent kick that's supposed to bestow elegance.

    Still, one must concede points for the moniker!
    Have you watched any corny spy movies lately?

    FADE IN: Our agent is trying make contact with the deadly Natasha. Could this really be her? This wholesome looking salesgirl behind the fragrance counter? He gives the code signal.

    -- " Excuse me but do you carry CARNAL FLOWER? "

    She smiles and replies with the countersign,

    --" No, but have you tried BLACK ORCHID? "

    Whereupon they engage in car chases, exotic hideouts, wild sex, betrayal, 10,000 rounds of ammo, hand to hand combat--and at the end save the world, fall in love and forsake weirdly named flower frags-- for cactus flesh.
    They both sport XERYUS ROUGE at their wedding.
