    Thumbs up Black Orchid. Wow. Would men wear it?

    It has a velvety body, heavy without being stinky, sour, sweet, hot, little spicy, a little woody too.
    I'm amazed!..

    It starts deep and rich with the pure truffle accord, that in my opinion is the main note, going all the way through the perfume. Is that much real ,that your mouth goes watery. Even so, is a funny note as, being the richest accord, seems to my nose, heady and airy, not overdosed. The truffle slowly melts with the black currant and a velvelty ylang, soft, like a shadow.
    After 15-20t apply the flower notes starts to raise slowly but with a strong presence.
    I start to renember now,"NIlang by Lalique".
    This perfume has the same reminiscent of jasmin, berries and lotus wood. It's just a ghostly exhibition, cause it changes radicly, in a blink on an eye.
    I have now in front of me, a dewy sour hint of fresh jasmine, that is for me, at the precise moment of the fragrance, like a little spark in the middle of the darkness.
    The gourmard accents, now, are falling down into a pool of creamy light quality. I hardly may detect very shy vanilla, ( like a nice ice cream) and the vetiver is making himself a way into a halo of dark, rich, luxury notes too. Probably the unknow orchid note appears here, waving in a matte texture, in the background.
    The chocolate has melted already with the truffle, that is basicly impossible to distingue within them.
    There's come a hint of balsam and patchouli. Just a little touch. A landing into reality, after been floating in a glutteny heaven for hours...
    The dry down is my favourite part of this perfume.
    I just love it and I can´t stop smelling in a sensible distance my whrist...
    I think is enough masculine to we used for male.
    Anyone has been brave?
    Good complimets when used?.

    The Saks around the corner from me is seeling this with the other 'mens' products. I also saw it being marketed to men in Nordstom. This stuff is drop dead sexy! Wear it!

    Thumbs up Re: Black Orchid. Wow. Would men wear it?

    I wear it and get compliments on it. I've seen it marketed in the men's fragrance sections of Neiman Marcus and Saks. Wear it with confidence.
