Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful Fragrance
Ok beauties, I was selected to test out the Tom Ford Black Orchid Eau De Parfum and the verdict.....
I absolutely love it! Now I will say that it is a little more woodsy than my normal scent but this one is a very regal scent and it lasts.
It is described as Iconic. Elusive. Seductive and lives up to every word. I personally see this fragrance as a night time, date night or girls night out more so than a daytime fragrance but thats just my preference. I actually wore it out on a date with my hubby and it really lasted through an outdoor dinner (quarantine and COVID-19 has us eating outside) and I was very impressed with the staying power.
Oh and how can I forget to talk about the actual bottle. Yall, it is gorgeous and easy to hold as you spray away. Very sleek and sexy bottle which I love! **PRO TIP- add this fragrance to your lotion after you shower and rub into your skin. Its amazing!
At any rate, I am excited to add this to my arsenal of fragrances!
Most Helpful Critical Review Unique Special Occasion Scent
As a long time Tom Ford fragrance fan, this one misses the mark for me. Admittedly, Im picky - I like very specific scents. Something spicy, warm, smoky, gourmand, sensual. I switch between OG Tom Ford, TF Patchouli Absolu, TF Tobacco Vanille, And Maison Margiela Jazz Club/By the Fireplace. Guerlain Gourmand Coquin is my all time dream.
Back to Black Orchid - the bottle is beautiful and stylish; everything you expect from a designer like Tom Ford. The initial spray was aggressive - the sillage is so, so, heavy. On the nose it is very musky, not as floral as I was expecting - maybe its the patchouli. It was almost off putting, I dont think I could spritz anywhere other my wrist. I could tell from the initial spray that it was promising. It softened as I wore it and ended up smelling wonderful - it just didnt have the outward lasting power towards the end. It definitely smells expensive, like a true quality fragrance.
After I sprayed my wrists, my husband entered the room not knowing what I had done/sprayed. He mentioned had a mature scent that was initially very musty. He also mentioned a few times throughout the day that it lingered.
I can say this fragrance is definitely seasonal. It craves a warm sweater, cold weather, and a special occasion. Its incredibly unique.
*Personally, I would not purchase a full size bottle. Black Orchid is a special occasion fragrance, not a signature scent.

Tried the smaller size to see how it went with my chemistry and it was great. Have spent lots of $$$ for scents that quickly fade. This warms nicely and reveals the musky side without the overwhelming sweetness of some florals. I'll save my money and get a larger size.
Absolute favorite date night/ winter scent!!!

Tom Ford always makes great perfumes and this is an affordable sexy, spicy, luxury scent from their line. I always receive compliments when I wear this and frequently have had my dates ask me exactly what perfume Im wearing as they love it! Long-lasting and definitely not a light scent.

This scent is lovely. It has a musky scent that smells like a great fit for the fall. If youre looking for a signature fall scent definitely try this out. It has a decent wear life. Very simplistic packaging but you know less is more!

I like the smell. Its strong and lasts all day. It doesnt smell too feminine and those are the scents I usually go for. But it is a nice change
kleeht from undisclosed
I love this perfume. It is unique and farely unisex. I prefer strong scents. This is perfect for fall and winter.

This is great scent, it is strong, and will last. I am not a fan of the very soft, constantly reapplying types of perfumes. This is mature and lasting.
Sexy! Will rock this come fall/winter.

Gorgeous woody dark floral. Very oriental. Projection is good and I do get compliments when I wear this but a little goes a long way. Two sprays is all you need.
strong lasting scent
lisasf6e0 from undisclosed
This is my first TF perfume and I must say it is very strong and long lasting. A little goes a long way and the scent will last hours. Ive worn it while out drinking with friends for 6+ hours and did not need to reapply. I love the presentation of the bottle as it looks delicate and classic. I will definitely be trying other TF scents soon.

katietaylooor from undisclosed
This perfume is one of my daily go tos. It is a good balance of feminine and masculine. The bottle is so sexy and just makes me feel confident when Im wearing it.
long lasting fragrant perfume!
larak2 from undisclosed
I have to say this scent isnt really my type of scent, but it has wonderful perfume qualities! It lasts sooo long and its strong and smells good! Its more musky and spicy? And Im more of a floral gal but this isnt bad! I probably wouldnt buy this if I smelled it but its not bad for a night out or something
Very Intense Fragrance!
influenster_kaitlyn from undisclosed
Personally as someone who loves warm & sweet gourmand fragrances, and can handle some florals this perfume is a bit too overwhelming for me. It is very intense and can be too much even using just two sprays, the scent also lingers on the whole body/hair regardless of where you apply. This is definitely a very powerful and woody/spicy fragrance, I would say that it is unisex/gender neutral, as it does not give off any obvious notes of traditionally feminine or masculine perfumes. I guess one huge pro of this would be that a little goes a LONG way, so its a beauty investment you will have to use for quite some time. If youre someone who prefers woody, spicy, and dense perfumes this is definitely something that you should try out.

This Perfume Has An Elegant, Feminine and Sophisticated Scent That I love, I am honest, it is not a perfume that I would use in the Daily but for a special occasion
I love it!!!
claudiat59 from undisclosed
this perfumers of my favorites !!! if essence is unique, excellent and unmistakable !!! It is like dark chocolate linked with truffle, the truth is an exquisite smell that makes you be present anywhere it is a woman's perfume but I think that men could use it the same because its essence does not distinguish gender due to its unique smell! I highly recommend it!!
first time new customer for life !!!

This product smells so freaking amazing ! I feel so sophisticated and elegant when wearing this fragrance ! I love love this
tasmii from undisclosed
This scent is my absolute new favorite and has now become my go-to for a night out. It has the most beautiful sophisticated scent and I have become obsessed with it despite usually going for floral scents. This is perfect for a special occasion and can easily be worn by any gender.
chelseys6 from undisclosed
Giving this 2 stars because its not a scent I would wear or typically choose. I gravitate towards fresh scents and florals. This scent however is more sultry and masculine. Would recommend for boss babes or even for fancy date nights. Love the bottle, very classic and timeless.
Good! Strong scent.
karinev19ea from undisclosed
I like this fragrance but the scent is too strong when you apply it at first. If you like strong scent this is good for you!
My favorite perfume for date night!
ivy_lc from undisclosed
The scents is so delicious! So feminine and luxury, ideal for date night with my hubby. The packing is so beautiful.
Obsessed with the smell
nikkiiraye from undisclosed
I received Black Orchid complimentary from @Influenster and have been OBSESSED with using this. With key notes of black truffle, black orchid, and plum, I always receive many compliments when I wear this fragrance. One spray is really all you need to smell great all day. The packaging of the bottle is also extremely elegant, and I feel so fancy whenever I use it. I genuinely love everything about this perfume, and will continue to use this until I run out and can repurchase!
hattie_killeen99 from undisclosed
I really enjoyed this spray! It is so universal. Both my dad and I can use it and enjoy it. It lasts an amazingly long amount of time!! I totally recommend.
Make you feel SEXY!
elizabethengh from undisclosed
Wooooooo if yall need a super sultry perfume- this is the one, honey! Its deep, dark and sexy. Honestly the notes are way different than I usually wear, but in a very good way. Perfect for date night.
Strong at first but settles down nicely
redmo from undisclosed
The bottle and packaging was beautiful and would make a great gift! The fragrance is more earthy and stronger than I'm used to but I like it. Black Orchid goes on strong at first but settles down nicely after a little wear. It's a heavier scent so would be great for winter months but it's not overbearing. it is a pleasant aroma.
brittanylaurenfranci from undisclosed
I gave this a 4 rating because while overall I really liked it, when I first sprayed it, it smelled manly. I thought it was mens cologne at first. But then it sweetens nicely and I got a lot of compliments on it! The packaging is spectacular!
Classy and Deep
kellywithajay from undisclosed
I am a bit blown away but the complexity of this scent. I have never smelled anything just like it although I do recognize bergamot and patchouli. let's be honest though neither of those screams sulty and powerful the way this scent combination does. It really lays on the skin well and lasts all day without being overpowering.
so happy I got to try this for free from influenser. feeling very lucky and like I need to try more Tom Ford products.
