Most Helpful Positive Review A Unique Scent!
My favorite thing about this perfume is the bottle. 2020 has not been the introduction to the decade I hoped for, I still really appreciate the 20s inspired look the bottle has. Most unique perfume I own. Around Autumn, I like to switch my daily perfume from a fresh smell to a more floral smell for Fall/Winter. I live in the desert so we really dont get seasons, so perfume is one of those things I can use to pretend its not 90 degrees in fall.
The orchid and ylang ylang scent really come through here and create the perfect scent Im looking for. Its very sophisticated, however its not a particularly feminine smell. I could imagine a man wearing this too, but not in a bad way. I think the androgynous aura of the perfume is very cutting edge, and this would be a thoughtful gift for a non-binary pal! I was sent this perfume by Influenster in exchange for a review, but I will be buying more for some people around Christmastime because I can see this working for a lot of people. Especially extroverted people that like to stand out!
When you compare the newer scent to the older version of this perfume it is much lighter. I find the original one that Influenster sent me in exchange for a review. Like, the original is less aggressive and more feminine, which I personally prefer. I could see myself wearing the more recent one in my everyday life, and the newer one when Im going out. They are both very good scents, and I think that that deciding which one is better is up to your personality.
Most Helpful Critical Review not for me
So I like the scent but not enough to actually buy it. I dont think any price point I would want to buy this scent just because it really smells mature and I dont want to be an adult yet. The scent kind of reminds me of like a powerful businesswoman in a full suit with a briefcase. Maybe in like 10 years this is something that I would reach for but currently its not something Id be interested in. The packaging kind of screams grandma to me. When I first saw it I thought the gold part was plastic and that the bottle was wrapped in it. Its just not my favorite its not some thing that I would reach for sitting on a shelf. The luxury price point makes me want to be excited for it but if Im being honest its just not something I would choose. The mini sample sort of smelt more woodsy to me and gave me the taste of a plum in my mouth. On the other hand the full size one I smelt the floral tones more and did not get the taste of anything familiar. If I had to pick between them I think I would like the smaller sample size smell more because it was more familiar.

This perfume smells absolutely delicious. At first when you spray it, it may smell intense, but once its applied to your skin and mixes in with your natural essence it becomes such a beautiful floral/fresh scent. Definitely recommend purchasing.
Dark, sexy, but STRONG
itsrebekahmia from undisclosed
This is a super warm, dark, and sexy scent that makes me think of very lavish black tie occasions. However, it is SO strong. Its the most concentrated formula of Tom Fords Black Orchid ever, which means that a little goes a long way (and I mean an itty bitty little bit) and it doesnt fade throughout the night.
Because its so concentrated, the floral notes of this perfume get kind of lost but I didnt mind too much. Its just like a whole new perfume so if youre looking for something similar to Black Orchid but deeper and slightly more masculine, this is it!

Tom Ford has the most unique scents. I wish I could own them all. This is a strong sexy scent and you have to let it die down. Then its fabulous!
Beautiful bottle & amazing scent!
jennh29 from undisclosed
I was super excited to be able to try out this Tom Ford perfume! I was immediately drawn to it when I saw the beautiful design of the bottle. I absolutely love the gold color! It looks so fancy and makes me feel fancy! It has a much more potent smell that lasts longer than the original black orchid perfume! One spray lasts all day! It has a very floral smell and didnt mix as well with my own scent as I wanted it to! I let my mom use some and it smelled great on her! She loved it! I would recommend this to anyone who loves a great floral perfume! Well worth the money as a little goes a long way! Would definitely purchase this product!

I am a mom of five and dont like wearing anything too over powering of a smell. Nothing worse than smelling strong perfume on your little baby. So I am not a huge fan of this strong scent perfume. I prefer something a lot less light and refreshing. If you like a perfume that will stay on for hours, then this is for you.
Bold and long lasting!
ftchelsss from undisclosed
I absolutely fell in love with the scent the moment I received it in the mail. The scent lasts such a long time and I got so many compliments asking what perfume I was wearing! This definitely deserves 5 stars!

Im very interesed for trying this parfum I think its very sweet and spicy for fall
jenniferp64 from undisclosed
for my first time using Tom Ford, I have to say i like it. It does has a woodsy/musky smell. not my typical go to kind of perfume, but has great scent that is long lasting. what a beautiful bottle and packaging I will say! I would recommend this to a friend.
nice sophisticated scent
sandrini_m_d from undisclosed
I LOVE THIS SCENT!! And the gold bottle makes you feel luxurious and elegant just by holding it. You can definitely smell the floral notes of the orchid but it also has a mustiness, slight hint of masculine that keeps it from being an overpowering typical floral scent. The floral lingers the most but you still get the dark musty hints long after youve applied it. Its definitely a classic sophisticated perfume that everyone will love. Regardless of whether youre in your 20s trying to find a signature scent or in your 60s and looking for something new and powerful to try. Id highly recommend it, youll also get great use of the travel size if you dont want to commit to it. A little lighter as well if youre looking for something in the day but that might just be my imagination.
Lasts all day, but not a huge fan of the scent
jennidollm from undisclosed
Not even exaggerating, one or two spirtz of this will last you the entire day. Im really amazed at how long the scent lasted. But, Im not a huge fan of the scent itself. It was a lot more wood-scented and heavier than I expected. I usually go for more flowery and sweet scents, and this one did seem more for like a night-out in a little black dress. I felt so elegant, but I think Ill stick to wearing my sweeter perfumes.
Perfect for Fall
victoriajyu from undisclosed
So Ive had ample time to try this perfume, and I must say, its grown on me even more and has become one of my new fall favorites. While I dont love the top notes, the heart and base notes are what made me fall in love with this perfume. The top notes are very floral and ever so slightly musky. Thankfully, they fade after about 15-20 minutes. The heart and base notes are warm, earthy, and spicy. Because its an EDP, the longevity is phenomenal. I can spray the perfume post shower without any lotion or body oil, and I can still smell it until the next day. Despite being labeled as a floral, its definitely more of a warm floral. For those that are curious, Id say its a fairly gender neutral fragrance, but with a masculine edge. I asked my husband to try the fragrance and it smelled amazing on him. The sillage is quite heavy, so a single spritz will do. I did compare this with the EDT version and Id say both the longevity and sillage are 10 fold. After about two hours, the EDT version dissipates and becomes almost undetectable when compared next to the EDP. For the EDT, the initial sillage is still strong, but it doesnt seem to be nearly has heavy as the EDP. This is more of a mature fragrance, so this may not be everyones cup of tea. If youre sensitive to fragrances, I could see this being a less than ideal fragrance for you.

First off, the bottle is super cute! I like the smell. Probably not something Id wear every day but I do like it. A good amount of musk/woody.
roeshelle from undisclosed
Let me start by saying the packaging is absolutely beautiful, I love it! This perfume is strong and long lasting - you just need 1 little spray and youre set. As far as the scent, I like it but I dont love it. It has a spicy, musky scent and I generally prefer a fresher,woody scent. I would probably give the actual perfume a 3/5 rating, but like I said I love the packaging so overall I say 4/5. If this is the kind of scent you prefer, you are in luck and I would definitely recommend this to you! Compared to the sample I received of the original perfume, I definitely like this one more. The sample gave me more grandma perfume vibes while this one has an updated scent this is much nicer!
estikeeks from undisclosed
Loved this scent! Gives me sexy night out vibes. Super long lasting and strong so a little goes a long way. The packaging was the only thing that got me caught off guard just because it has A masculine look to it but once I smelt it, i knew it was for women
Smell that Lasts
aashleyccarlson from undisclosed
Im giving this product 5 stars because I have NEVER had a perfume that people smell all day. I get complimented constantly throughout the day on how I smell. It is a pricey product, but its so worth it. You only need 2 spritz so the bottle lasts a long time.
chloed1889 from undisclosed
Strong, but just right. Smells very sophisticated and not too floral. I would wear it to work or on a date.

I received this on my Complimentary VoxBox. The scent is perfect! A little goes a long way! My husband uses it mostly. He love it .
Vox Box Review
sarahu14 from undisclosed
Its okay! I dont typically wear perfume, but I received this in a Vox Box and gave it a shot. It has a pretty heavy spiced scent which I wouldnt normally go for. Compared to the smaller sample of the old formula, I do prefer this one because I felt it was a little more subtle. However, its still not something I would reach for on a daily basis or even to wear on a special occasion. The packaging is beautiful, but I dont think I would purchase it again.
dark and sultry
marjoriem4 from undisclosed
An amazing addition to my perfume collection, this warm and spicy scent is intoxicating. Perfect for fall weather and for a night on the town, Black Orchid will make you feel like a million bucks. It lasts all day and into the night making it a worthwhile fragrance to add to your collection. Overall, the full sized has a much fuller and deeper scent than the sample size.
The gold packaging is divine and luxurious. The experience is a10/10. Is it worth the money? I dont know...I spend quite a bit of fragrances but this may even be pushing it for me. But if youre looking for a splurge, this is a great option for your next scent!
beautiful bottle, and beautiful scent!
katereynolds0e74ae4e from undisclosed
I really loved this perfume. It came right at the right time (it is slightly too heavy for summer, but perfect for transitioning to fall). It is deliciously spicy with a hint of musk and sweetness. Very sophisticated. The Art Deco style bottle is gorgeous on my side table :)
a bit stronger than the original
tiffchanteuse from undisclosed
First of all, the packaging & the bottle are incrediblemakes me feel like a million bucks. So luxurious! The scent is okay, but theres something I cant quite put my finger on-its not bad, but its slightly different from the original Black Orchid. More pungent? I want to love it...but I can only take it in tiny doses.
Lovely but Strong
lindsaym4f99 from undisclosed
The product is overall beautiful. The gold bottle is stunning and feels quality - eye-catching without being too much, has a weight to it that makes it feel expensive. The scent grew on me. At first it felt a bit strong and overpowering, but Im really enjoying the musky floral scent. Its long lasting and perfect for a night out!
Tom Ford black orchid fragrance
lilyueaa2 from undisclosed
I really love this perfume. Its very spicy, which I needed to get used to, so if you dont really like spicy scents then I think this isnt the one for you. at first when I put it on it had a smell of black licorice, which I did not enjoy but as I wore it I realized how much I loved it.As it where is down the center only gets better, it also lasts pretty long.
bold and sexy!
childoftheuniverse from undisclosed
I love Tom Ford fragrances, but they are definitely not for the faint of heart. The new Black Orchid doesnt disappoint. It has such a sexy, lingering fragrance that it would definitely turn heads. Its perfect for a night out. I would recommend smelling/testing a fragrance like this in person, just to be sure that you like it. At first spritz, its overpowering (as with most fragrances), but once it settles on the skin, it blooms through the wear. Highly recommend!
quinnc7a78 from undisclosed
Smells amazing. Great for the chillier months as its a heavy, earthier scent. Would recommend. Love the packaging as well!
