    In your honest opinions. Please describe and compare.

    For me, Black Orchid is a dusty, skanky, fruity mess for women.

    Scent Intense is a shimmering amber floral easily worn by a man.

    Quite different. As Kaern was saying, Costume National is a smooth amber in the modern style, very wearable. The Tom Fords in general tend to be bolder, but I'm not a big fan of this one.

    Perhaps a bit against the current, but always loved the heavy and heady floral notes in TF Black Orchid (and this from the viewpoint of someone who cannot usually stand such floral types and yet was pleasantly surprised about this one)

    Of the two for me - CoStume National Scent Intense (smelled it on my daughter who used to wear it and liked it)

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Just tried a sample of Black Orchid. CoStume National Scent Intense is leagues better.
