    Might have already tested this one in the Parfum version almost involuntarily, while strolling through a particular TF selection at a local store, did find this high to very increased performance way above the average of TF scents do already like (while keeping in mind that might like it even more not just in spite but likely because of this)

    Two immediate thoughts:

    That sounds incredible, I can't wait to try it!

    Followed shortly by, why did they stretch out the Sahara Noir bottle? How can they re-release Sahara Noir if they already reused the bottle? Unless they plan on never re-releasing it... which means...

    I can see them re-releasing it in the private line (upper section of it even).

    Yeah same here. I never found any version to be lacking or weak. I think these YouTube reviewers really shape a lot of people’s perception on what’s acceptable performance. I’ve noticed an increasing trend where every fragrance is considered weak yet every kid wearing these that show up to a bar will fumigate the whole place and say it’s just a skin scent.

    That wouldn't be a bad idea. Like Amber Absolute, I could see it being changed a little, but a good chance to anyone who missed out the first time to stock up.

    whatever it was that you were sniffing it is obviously not being sold in the market right now from Macy or Luckyscent, it is deceptive and downright misleading to hype up the Black Orchid as being potent, obnoxious, or powerful, it is hilarious and laughable. In comparison, almost every single releases from PDM are 10x louder and more obnoxious than the Black Orchid, Paco Rabanne's One million OG/Prive/Lucky those are WAY louder than the Black orchid, Armani code lines are louder, same as Dior Savage EDT and EDP filling the entire room with just 3 to 4 sprays, Y EDP is also 10X more beast mode than the Black Orchid ever wished to be, just about any other designers out there is going to kick the crap out of the Black Orchid in projection and longevity.

    Stop misleading people and lying about how great the Black Orchid performance is, i have a new bottle here that i bought from Macy's, along with samples i got from Luckyscent, this shit clearly do not live up to the LIES being fabricated by the frag community. Good longevity and filling out the whole room??? you must be talking about the closet and tiny storage room.

    Bro I’m not hyping up black orchid at all. In fact it’s the opposite. Some of us have sensitive noses. It’s not a lie to say that Black orchid has solid performance. I’m sorry you don’t feel that way but as many have stated in here it’s just not the case for us. I’m sure some YouTube reviewers might complain about it and if you’re expecting every fragrance to be BEAST MODE I guess you’ll be let down by just about anything that falls short of a 12 hour projection bomb.

    And yes most of those fragrances you speak about are obnoxious. But even with YSL La Nuit De L’Homme the same great performance I’ve always had from it even though people complain online about it lasting two hours on their skin. I’ve been wearing that scent since it first came out and not much has changed that would cause me to write a bad review about it. I think the hype here is that people in the YouTube fragrance review scene are setting the standards for everyone to follow and if anything deviates from what Jeremy Fragrance or whoever else is popular says it’s seen as a lie. Sorry dude I just don’t feel black orchid is some weak, paling in comparison of any version I’ve ever tried before.

    As for performance on the current version of Black Orchid, I can personally testify that my Feb2018 bottle is a powerhouse.

    l adore Black Orchid, although l don't wear it often as l have to be in the right mood for it. And no, l don't overspray.

    l probably wouldn't shell out the big bucks for the parfum, but l'd be delighted if it was gifted to me!

    Same here, I've ordered the new Parfum version directly from TF website few days ago, should be here on next Monday. Absolutely love the scent, so much so I have two different clones hoping to get better performance (Maremma by Tiziana Terenzi and Dark Orchid by Amouroud) lol

    look forward to hearing your thoughts on it! I’ve considered the Terenzi but but wasn’t aware of the Amouroud!

    Maremma is extremely close like 99% similar but minus the earthy truffle note, high-quality ingredients and smell awesome, i get few more hours of longevity from it than BO, i like it so much I bought a backup bottle. lol

    Not a fan of Amouroud's take on the BO, way too synthetic and harsh to my nose.

    I've been wearing the new parfum version for 2 days now, it's a more intense version of the EDP, denser, and more pronounced in floral type notes, and less truffle/mushroom earthy type funk, it's more mass appealing and not as polarizing as the EDP. On my skins, the projection is a solid 3+hr, and I get about 8 to 9hr longevity with the parfum comparing to 5~6hr from the EDP.

    Which one do i prefer? I love the truffle/mushroom funkiness so uniqueness wise i like the EDP more. But, the Parfum has better longevity and last through the workday, so that would be my choice if i were to pick a daily driver or signature scent.

    Glowing praise, for those interested. Despite being a typical 'influencer' I find him to be one of the better 'reviewers' on youtube. That said, it sounds like he's been sent it for free, so...

    Yes, I've also noticed that, but I guess it's really the parfum because they also have the EDP one. I've never bought anything from them but they look legit.

    Sounds excellent, I’ve never smelled the EDP owned a bottle and never opened it sold it off I might just check this one out the bottle in the gold color looks kinda nice!

    received my bottle from them today, very quick shipping and price was great too considering it’s brand new to market.

    first impression from someone who adores the edp.... more masculine, less polarizing, on my skin less floral. I absolutely love the initial impression. More than like take over from the edp as my signature going by the first 6 hour wearing

    The new Parfum is definitely more versatile for me, not that the EDP isn't versatile or anything but overall the Parfum just smell more balanced and well rounded to my nose, no specific notes that really stood out, it's just a sexy and very smooth blend that I would wear all year round and for any occasion.
