This is the type of scent which makes you feel 'dressed'. By this I mean once you've worn it, you'll feel naked without it. Oh my, what a beauty this one is! I love the rose in this - I imagine a night rose which blooms and projects it's best fragrance in the dark of the night.This is one of the few scents I would deem as truly unisex. Other scents which claim to be unisex either lean toward being too masculine or too feminine. I think the reason this works is because it's simply just a breath-taking scent, and as such it can be worn as such by either man or woman. It exudes such an amazing smell you could easily fall in love with the person wearing it.I didn't actually think I'd like this. I simply ordered a sample because I'd read some really great reviews and wanted to try it for myself - the idea of the additional saffron, vanilla and patchouli notes (amongst others) had made me think it would be too pungent for me. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. The other notes blend with the rose to bring out a darker velvety-ness I didn't think existed.I see this as quite a sophisticated scent - the type you'd wear if you wanted to exude mystery, sultry, sophistication, and wealth.I recently reviewed another perfume where I stated that it's rare to find a perfume which actually smells expensive despite the price. Unexpectedly, I find this is also the case with Noir de Noir.I would categorize this as a 'mature' scent, but not in a negative 'grandma-ish' way. It's not a girly scent. Not something you'd imagine cheer-leading in, but something you'd wear if you were being driven in a luxury car to an exclusive theatrical performance somewhere (one can dream ...!).I give this a 5 out of 5. I know it will not be for everyone, and might be too strong for some, however, if this suits you I say "flaunt it"!

This is a beautiful palette. The colours are very fall (probably due to the red) however you can use more of the gold/brown to make it more suitable for other seasons. It’s a really nice colour combination, quite popular this palette is. It can used daytime or nighttime - very versatile. The same usual Tom Ford packaging. I am however not the biggest fan of his wet/dry formula hence only 4 stars instead of 5. I find they are just a teeny bit harder to blend than his usual formula. So with this palette I have to spend a bit more time to make sure all the shadows are blended. The top left colour is stunning and I like using that as a top coat on my eyes. Longevity is good, though I always use an eye primer (oily eyelids what not). Usually after 10 hours there is some fading but nothing too dramatic. I find the red colour fades the most. It’s a lovely palette, however I am a makeup hoarder so if I ever finish this, may consider repurchasing though that maybe 10 years down the line!

Being an Angel Thierry Miglers lover, I was looking for an Angels alter ego.Black Orchid has nothing similar to Angel when you smell it, but has a similar personality. An also hard no woman-no man scent, a taste of rainy woods in winter. Spray twice and smells all day. Gives me the feeling of wet tree, grass, mushrooms and oak whit a deep mysterious underground from the center of Earth. Dont try it if you like flower scents. Its too hard, too eerie, and you must have a certain personality to support this elf scent.Men usualy dont aprove it, finding it alien. Well as I noticed there is no man who rides a big motorcycle, who dives meters under water, and all risk taking males who dont fell in love when they smell it on a female neck. Thats experience!

Terra is much more natural on me than Nars Laguna powder bronzer or Edward Bess Daydream which are both a bit more golden and are the last 2 bronzers I used regularly. It is almost matte, but not flat. As another reviewer said, it does blend seamlessly into blush. I'm about NC15-20, neutral to warm. Although, in other makeup categories, foundation, blush, eyeshadow, etc, I am constantly looking at and sometimes buying the next thing I read about that could conceivably be life altering, bronzer is one of those makeup categories that once I find "it", I could be satisfied for years without straying. So, this is one makeup category in which I am definitely not an expert having only in my life owned 3 powder bronzers and 2 creams. I've had Terra so long, I can't even remember how many years ago I bought my first and to date, only compact of it. And, I can't believe I didn't review this favorite sooner. I average wearing makeup about 4 times a week now that I am retired and even on days I do wear it, I never reapply so keep that in mind when I say I know I've had Terra at least two years and am just hitting pan. My compact is the small size which was the only size available when I bought it. I do wish that I had bought the $TF bronzing brush before the switch to synthetic because the one bronzing brush I own from Bobbi Brown, while soft and dense is so big that the results are almost too subtle even for a subtle makeup application fan like me. As I hit pan, I am looking to see if I'd like to try something new, but I am leaning toward rebuying Terra since the color works so well and the texture is so natural. As I love it and it works so well and lasts so long, I think it is worth repurchasing.

This review is for Tom Ford Cafe Rose Parfum not, Lost Cherry!Oh my, this fragrance is unique! Mysterious. I absolutely LOVE it!!! For me, the perfect winter fragrance. Trying to explain it is difficult. I don't exactly smell roses or coffee. It's warm. Not an oriental. Not a spice.I think I love it because it's so different! It lasts all day and into the evening. I don't re-apply. Many fragrances cause me to breakout. This one gave me no skin problems.Highly recommend testing this fragrance before you buy. It's costly. I purchased from Sephora.com. I was impulsive! Loved the reviews on Sephora.com. Threw caution to the wind and purchased for Christmas-without testing it, first! I'm so very rarely impulsive! Thrilled and surprised myself! I love that my signature scents aren't common-very inviting and interesting.I use Juicy Couture Rose in the summer and now, Tom Ford Cafe Rose in the winter. My 2 desert island fragrances!
