Most Helpful Positive Review Bold and sexy!
The first time I ever experienced Black Orchid, I was iffy and was not sure if I was going to like it. Because the first initial scent was very strong. However, couple of minutes after the initial spray it completely surprised me! The scent softens up and it was AMAZING! This perfume is sexy, bold, edgy sophisticated, dark, yet delicate at the same time. This perfume is feminine, yet not at all girly. To me it would be the perfect date night perfume because it will give you the extra boost of confident! However, it is a great every day wear as well! I have been wearing it for a week now and I get compliments every day! I love that this perfume lasts all day without being overwhelming and give you a headache. Since, this is a bold and potent, a little goes a longgg way! I have only used 1-2 squirts and honestly you do not need any more than that! You will defiantly get what you paid for! The bottle is elegant, sexy, and edgy. I love the sexy all black bottle with the gold details. I normally used citrusy and fresh floral scents. But this perfume is a GAME CHANGER! This perfume makes me feel so sexy and confident. I would 100% recommend this!!
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.

It is a feminine perfume, but definitely for me, it can be unisex, it has a deep and soft smell, its aroma is a mixture of dark chocolate and flowers, it is perfect for the days, when you want to feel magnetic, interesting and want to make an impact. .
It seems to me that it gives impetus and makes me feel mysterious and daring.
The packaging definitely gives that mysterious and curious feeling.
I loved it and I invite all women to try it, it is a unique and addictive fragrance.

I Feel Like Mary Kate and Ashley With This

I blindly purchased a few of Tom Ford perfumes one day, including Black Orchid Eau de Parfum Spray. While Black Orchid isnt necessarily a fragrance I would say is one of my signature scents (I am very much into Gourmand, Vanilla, White Florals, Jasmine, Amber, Musk, etc.), I ended up loving the fragrance just because its pretty rare, striking, sophisticated and very mature. I feel like I am playing a role when I wear this. It screams: sophisticated woman, with slight bad girl vibes. Id definitely describe the fragrance as spicy and powdery, with a hint of menthol. Almost reminds me of menthol cigarettes, even though I, personally, dont like smoke or smoking. I dont think I could recommend this to anyone just because its such a strange scent to me. And... fragrance is such a personal thing; one girls favorite is another girls hated it. But this is how I experienced Black Orchid by Tom Ford. Hope you have a chance to check it out and try it for yourself.

I have already been stopped and complimented several times and asked what I was wearing. I get a very strong black licorice fragrance from it so if you don't like that you might not like the fragrance.
karenxokay from undisclosed
It was certainly not my style scent. Also smelled very woodsy and more of a cologne than a pretty womans scent.

My favorite cold weather fragrance!

The packaging reminds me of something my nana would of had and so did the scent. I have to say I wasnt a fan of this perfume at all.

I wasnt a huge fan of this it was way to many for me but my husband ended up using it and loving it
nice strong scent
stephaniea108 from undisclosed
If you like Marc Jacobs Decadence, Caroline Herrera Good Girl, and YSL Libre then you will love this scent too! The bottle will also look beautiful alongside the rest! Strong, long lasting, scent with a feminine finish!
I honestly dont like...
makaylah20 from undisclosed
I honestly dont like this fragrance that much. There is something overbearing and too strong about it. I prefer lighter, sweeter scents. But if you like a musky floral scent this is for you.
Perfect fragrance for the Fall and Winter
kellyjackson75 from undisclosed
I absolutely love this perfume. Its very unique and people always ask what Im wearing. My husband loves this! One or two sprays and is all you need and it is very long lasting. The smell gets better as the day goes on, simply incredible!!
hautecartel from undisclosed
This is one of my favorite perfumes in my collection. The packaging stands out on my vanity tray and looks very luxe. This parfum wears all day, especially when worn directly on hydrated skin (tip : use unscented lotion so it doesnt impact your fragrances notes). I get MANY compliments when I wear this fragrance, both from men and women.
such an amazing scent
emkipp from undisclosed
Black orchid is such an amazing scent I actually own 3 bottles! Its very sophisticated and sensual. Ive noticed this smells slightly different on different people, which makes it original when worn.
So bold and romantic
vivafaction from undisclosed
I am typically a women who likes lighter and cleaner scents (soaps, citrus, I wear two Tocca perfumes, etc), but this really appeals to the goth in me. It's a deep and darkly Romantic smell! Definitely has a musk which typically bothers me but this doesn't. There is something that sweetens the musk so it doesn't smell heavy or dank (probably the plum), but it doesn't make it sweet smelling, just balanced. I'm not sure if I would have ever purchased this for myself but I'm happy i have it, plus the bottle is beautiful. this is most certainly a scent that someone should sample first as sits differently on everyone, and though this smelled nice on me, it smelled like obsession from the 90s on my two friends, or for the 80s babes - like Opium perfume.

Packaging is beautiful! Looks expensive and feels expensive, but how does it smell? Really good! If you warm fragrances, with a hint of spice - this is for you. I liked the perfume as it wore throughout the day as well. It think we all can agree that wearing perfume that fades by the end of the day isnt ideal, well this wasnt the case with this bad boy! Very nice!
jackiejacks from undisclosed
okay I'm im my mid 20s and I was actually looking for a perfume that would smell a bit more mature but still sweet. I was done smelling like cotton candy so this was perfect. I love the smell sweet yet strong and with a subtle woods smell. love it. Definitely worth every penny.
jenniferz17 from undisclosed
Love, love, LOVE this scent! I tend to prefer floral scents, and this one is perfect. Its not a typical floral, in that its not a very sweet scent. Id say its more deep and musky almost. I could as easily wear this in fall and winter as I could in spring/summer. I would repurchase, I have gotten so many compliments! The only thing I would say against this perfume is that it doesnt last as long as some of my other perfumes.
sexy and strong
laurenh23e2 from undisclosed
Beautiful and a bit unexpected! Sexy, dark, long lasting, and compliment inducing. I would recommend to someone who doesnt mind stand out scents! Not for the subtle girl.
more masculine than unisex
spun_gold_naturals from undisclosed
strength and duration is great. but I received this box during the summer and I feel like it's really heavy and more of a winter scent. I wouldn't repurchase. it's a nice scent but not for me.
great but not for me
analopez1119 from undisclosed
The scent will last you the entire day, so a little goes a long way, but Im more of floral/ sweet scents but this perfume is quite strong and more of a musky scent almost as a mens perfume
long lasting scent but not for my liking
chantalgarza01 from undisclosed
The scent lasts the whole day and the bottle is very nice, but I feel that the scent is more for an older individual. I would repurchase, but as a gift for my grandmother.
mxdom04 from undisclosed
This perfume is great quality the scent is perfect for a night out. It is long wear and long lasting in different conditions.
eliseoleary from undisclosed
This perfume is so strong and long lasting, itll last all day and into the night without wearing away. The scent is really great, it definitely is more of a night time/going out perfume as its a bit heavier.
Wasn't for me
amberg139 from undisclosed
I really loved the packaging of this brand! I really wanted to like this scent but truthfully it just wasnt a smell i liked. The scent did last a really long time which was awesome but i just didnt care for the aroma at all.
