TOM FORD: Black Orchid
Spot on, curtain open! The popular fragrance of TOM FORD shows presence as soon as he enters the stage of life. He draws all attention, sits down, and the effect of his playing echoes long after the curtain has sunk. Still an intense-striking damenduft from the Tom Ford line signature, the incredibly long lasting. Flowery, oriental, extraordinary in its composition, he places on the flowery-spicy black orchid. In order to intensify its effect, Tom Ford takes deep into the recipe box of his historical models and uses ancient (mystically dark) perfume ingredients such as incense, patchouli, vanilla, sandalwood and truffle. The earthy-mossy smell of the noble mushroom gives the composition a very special twist. This also contains the pheromone androstenone - the sexual perfume of the boar. Also rare: the odeur of lotus wood from the lotus plum. The intensive feminine note of the Lotus water lily is more common. In addition, the American designer naturally relies on his beloved vetiver, beguiling ylang-ylang and the herb-fruity aroma of black currant.
Parfumlounge says: A very unusual perfume, intense, exotic, dark, rarely smelled, perfect for cooler days. We find the slightly different fragrance serves not only impulsive women as an extraordinary signature, but also self-confident, experimental men who like to claim the stage of life for themselves. Our Tip: The Eau de Parfum is only for the night, otherwise the Eau de Toilette suffices! A splash is enough for the whole day. The black and gold bottle is also very elegant and elegant.

Parfumlounge Scent: Black orchid
The black orchid is actually not black, but only very, very deep-red or violet. In Asian culture the dark beauty stands for youthfulness and vitality and is gladly given away to the elderly. Your odeur is reminiscent of hyacinths. The rare plant was already immortalized in 1928 in the eponymous opera grotesque by Eugen d'Albert as well as in a famous US-American feature film of 1958 with Sophia Loren and Anthony Quinn in the title role.
