    It was fun trying to figure out what to wear today, I have a tiny sample of this that was gifted to me eons ago and I never wear it. So today I thought...WHAT are you waiting for Mike? Wear it today! So I did:

    Black Orchid Parfum/Extrait by Tom Ford



    So, this is not the Black Orchid (the Eau de Parfum) that you all are familiar with - this is the PARFUM version of the scent ($600 / half ounce). Ford released only a limited amount of these bottles (I only ever saw them for sale at his boutique in Madison Avenue & at Neimans) and there is a BN thread about it. Years ago I went through my Black-Orchid-phase - loved it to pieces and then sort of got burned out on it after some time. It's not an 'easy' scent to wear regularly, especially here in Miami with our weather. Which always surprises me because inevitably I smell it on so many people in Miami (men and women). It's so over the top and so distinctive, it's impossible not to recognize it on someone as soon as they step into the same room as you. Since it's release it's inspired many scents (IMO Costume National Homme, Santal 33 and Black Amethyst by Bath & Body Works [no joke]). The PARFUM is exquisite. It has a slightly more boozy top notes that quickly fades into a sort of brown-sugar-meets-truffle smell from the original just more subdued, richer...chewier. I only have about 1/4 of 1 ml left in my vial and I only used half of it this morning - dabbing it on my arms and chest...and I am HEAVILY scented. I imagine I will smell this strong all day. I always liken Black Orchid to Poison - not the smell, but the sheer strength of the scents are matched. Go big or go home.
