Delicious, lush orchid. Amazing and gorgeous. I don't get most of the other notes, just a lush tropical flower that dries fairly true, until the very end, when the combination of notes can be detected as faint vanilla woods. Quite nice. My husband thought it was very perfume-y and didn't like it as much as I did, but tropical florals are very iffy on me, and this one I appreciate greatly for being lovely without indole and not smelling like synthetic jasmine/gardenia/punch-in-the-face tuberose. (still looking for a tuberose that smells on me like it does on the plant.)

I am using this product for last 4 years. Its my favorite fragrance, but not for every day. The first think to say about this product - of course the smell. Its amayzing, something very unique. Second - it could worn really really long time. And hour after hour the parfume will open more and more.

I can usually wear strong perfumes, actually they are the only ones that don't disappear in 60 sec. when I put them on. So I was looking forward to my new sample of Black Orchid. Initially it had a strong chocolate smell that became sweet and rather nice. After a half hour or so I,like a previous reviewer, smelled like a tree. It was a pleasant odor of warm newly cut cedar but maybe not what I had expected. My husband walked into the bedroom and commented that the house had smelled like wood a lot today and asked if I had a new perfume. I said I did and I smelled like a cedar tree. He corrected me and said it was sandlewood. The next morning I still smelled like a tree. Occasionally I get whiffs of floral. But I still smell like a tree.

I love this during the winter. It's deep, dark, spicy, SEXY and unexpected on a woman. This isn't a little girl's perfume, nor is it anything I could smell on a grandma. All that's needed is a little black dress, no cleavage required.
One spritz goes a looooong way, so this bottle should last forever. My boyfriend got this for me as a birthday gift, but maybe he shouldn't have because this scent makes men follow me like lost puppies.
My only gripe is that I don't love the bottle, but that's rather petty on my art and it won't prevent me from buying another bottle.

Tom Ford's Black Orchid is a rich luscious fragrance which lasts beautifully and is definitely not for the fainthearted. Warm, unforgettable and always remarked on by men....not for everyone, but it works for me. :)

Black Orchid is a huge chocolate flower.
The composition is constructed around spicy black orchid, and all of the other components (citrus, jasmine, gardenia, black current, spice, fruit, chocolate, patchouli, and amber) exaggerate each facet of the flower. The result is an enormous 3D black orchid: dark and psychedelic. Woodsy notes are barely detectable, but there is definitely something almost swampy lurking behind the onslaught of sweet chocolate. Also, there is a loud, constant stream of piss coming from the black currant and/or jasmine.
Nicely done, just keep it away from me.

I wanted to give this a try because I really like unique sensual fragrances (usually woody florientals). Well this is indeed unique and in some ways sensual. It really does need to be sampled on the skin and not a paper strip. It changes ALOT. Starts out kinda strong, for me it was an instant turn off . . .then it settled into this really warm sensual sweetness. Then just as I was about to put this on my short list of "gotta gets". . . all I could smell was DIRT, TREE BARK, all those woody things that I DO NOT want to smell like. Very disappointing because I actually thought i may have found "my scent" but in the end there is just too much woods in the soul for me. Same thing happend with Lolita Lempicka. . . HEAVEN then DIRT . . . .*clears throat*. . . I mean earth! ;-)

quite delectable,yummy gourmand,particularly heavy on the plum....no, plum jam to be exact...
I didn't expect anything from B.orchid, and got so much!!
special,very unique- one of the kind -scent of raw,untamed and earthy notes that go so well together...
it is extremely potent and sexy, extremely sweet,extremely in the center of anyone's attention...and I looove it...
the most non-cohesive part of this perfume is the begining where top notes collide, smelling like hot mushroom, or truffle as the notes say...it is oily shroom,mixed with dark,sweet plum jam, jasmine and ylang-ylang which gives the spine to this overwhelming and heavy darkness...I can detect sandalwood,incense,patchouly but not apart from the lighter notes, and they compliment each other in a very flattery way....I could imagine this one on a woman or a man, but one thing's for sure...don't overdo it, and don't wear it in places whrer people dine, ok...
once I was eating my dinner in a small restaurant and there she was-a heavy leather-ed girl with black lips and goth make -up...wearing Black Orchid...all I could smell was her perfume....and all I ate that evening was her perfume...it was a very unconfortable situation and if I didn't started to hate it then, I never will....
and I didn't, but just discovered that BO is not supposed to be worn in crowded places,small clubs or miniature apartements...it wants to breathe...cold weather,wind and lots of space is what it takes to makes this blossom!...
absolutely-try before you buy....it is very edgy but if you like it, it will be so kind to like you back,because it is not an exclusive and mysterious in a way that it picks it's own public or wearer....it is not simple and cutsie,but modest and special....
definitely a winner but in the right circumstances...
