What more is there to say about Black Orchid? Huge florals are supported by even bigger patchouli and truffle. Equally suited for a black suit as it is for a leather jacket. Equal parts severe and elegant. This is the perfume that showed me it was okay to look into feminine releases, and I haven’t looked back.

My nose burnt just smelling the blotter very carefully. Something pungent that I'd expect to find on the kitchen shelf at best. Had I not known, I would have even thought the scent had turned.

I am aware that fragrances develop differently and some notes can be pronounced more if tried on your skin. Still, I'm glad I didn't put this on any part of my body. As expensive and as exclusive this perfume may be, I am afraid to say that I would even rather smell of someone's tobacco smoke than this (besides, it would hurt less for my nose and my wallet).

Sorry, but I cannot imagine who would want to wear this, but to shock their fellow human beings, or on costume play events dressed as a caveman...
On the upside: Wearing this to important meetings will certainly leave a lasting impression, guaranteed!

Sexy, dark florals, their roots still caked with damp soil, and a sultry sweetness that lingers throughout. This is how I want my woman to smell.

I love this scent. It's rich and multi-layered. It starts out with a sweet, almost licorice aroma. This fades to a dark floral, and finally to a vanilla-sandalwood with just a hint of floral sweetness.

The dark floral notes in the middle smelled familiar. I went to my scent collection to investigate, and started with - what else? - another Black Orchid perfume, a vintage Jovan. It's almost exactly the same. But the Jovan is just one note - the Tom Ford version is much more complex and exciting.

My only dislike is that the silage on me is fairly short.

Tried this for the first time today. Was told this was unisex and it is. Reminds me a lot of By for men by D and G. Has that same aroma to it (different aroma but the same idea). The scent is powerful. One of the most longest lasting and powerful scents. One spray and you will be good for days.
The scent: immediately after spraying it, I felt like I have had this before. Got home and it came to me - took out my old YSL OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM FOR MEN and sure enough, this is an exact replica (with added jasmine but barely noticeable). Love the scent anyway despite it being Opium. Now before people get up in arms - the Opium Edt is completely different from the Opium EDP FOR MEN. The EDP was amazing and if you want a current version, this is it.

I wanted to love this. To my nose it smells like pancake syrup or maple syrup which smells good. My chemistry neutralizes it; within minutes it is gone without a trace! My husband doesn't even smell it on me! I find so fascinating the interaction of perfume and body chemistry! Zero longevity zero spillage.
