Tom Ford can do no wrong in my world! I purchased both Black Orchid & the slightly more floral Velvet Orchid during fragrance week and I cannot stop wearing them. Black Orchid is very top heavy and earthy. It reminds me of a lush tropical garden somewhere exotic. It's not a fragrance for every woman, as some may find it a bit overpowering. But I think it wears like a dream with my …Read more

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 …

Isn't it crazy how taste and perspective change over time? My friend gave me a vial sample back in 2014. I wore it, and absolutely hated it! I thought it was screechy, jagged and gross. I couldn't believe people would want to smell like that. I threw it out. Then just yesterday I got a sample from Sephora. I tried it again, and holy cow! It smells beautiful. Since 2014 I've started …Read more

This is definitely a strong perfume! I save it for date nights with my fiancé because it's much too strong to wear to work. After it dries down a bit, it's actually well-balanced between spice, woods, musk, and a bit of powder. I like spraying just a tiny bit on my wrist and then rubbing onto pulse points, and then start doing makeup/hair so it has a chance to fade. Overall I really …Read more

Now that BBW Black Amethyst has been discontinued and DKNY Black Cashmere has long been discontinued, Black Orchid is my go to spicy, incense fragrance. Of course, it's outrageously expensive to buy in department stores, but between online perfume outlets with extra discount coupons and eBay, I'm able to get my dark incense fragrance fix.

Masculine and strong. I'd rather save $ and buy a Victoria's Secret fragrance mist.

I first tried the edp of this years ago and loathed it for being too strong, too spicy, too sweet, just too too too much! Fast forward several years and I received a sample off the edt. Different animal altogether. Yes it is still a full bodied oriental but the edt is sooooo much more refined. I get lovely ylang ylang over nutmeg, sandalwood and musk with a delicate coconut vibe (no harsh …Read more

Oh my goodness. I tried to like it, I did, but this fragrance is simply trying too hard. I can see a very bold, very vampish woman using this and pulling it off, but let's be real most of us aren't her. It's only wearable if you're dressed to look congruent with what this fragrance throws.

Far too masculine for my taste. I powered through the opening notes (very …

The smell was nice, but a little to musky and heavy for me.

Awful. Just awful. Very strong and overpowering. Gave me a horrible headache within minutes of putting this on. There was no change in the scent from the initial spray to the drydown. It smelled the same. There was no other notes here but strong stinky florals. This smells like a cheap drugstore fragrance. This is way over priced for the cheap scent it has. If you are sensitive to strong …Read more
