TOM FORD: Orchid Soleil
TOM FORD Black Orchid: a sensuous damsel-like sunshine on bare skin on hot summer summers, fresh from the studio of the American designer. Orchid Soleil is one of the newest creations of the signature line and presents itself elegantly in the roségolden Flakon, which would go smoothly as a hand flatterer. Pomeranians (Bitterorange) and peppered cypress are associated with charming spider lilies (they are not lilies, but belong to the Amaryllis family) and hypnotic tuberose (Nachthyazinthe) as well as the intense absolute orchid, rounded off by patschuli.
Parfumlounge says: If you like intense floral perfumes and like to be seduced by the aromas of nature, you will be impressed by the long-standing odeur of Orchid Soleil. Tom Ford is also keen to experiment with new, extraordinary ingredients. This time it is the irresistible aroma of roasted chestnuts. We would have liked a little more.

Parfumlounge wiki: Orchid
As for their scent, orchids are very peculiar. Some do not smell at all, others are very intense - but only at the day when pollinators like butterflies or hummingbirds are on the road. Some exude a wonderfully vanilla-sweet, others an elegant-flowery, yet others a rather lemony-fresh odeur. The orchid can therefore basically stand for different fragrance directions. In the manufacture of perfumes, the queen of flowers usually gives a delicate floweriness to graceful dams. As early as the 5th century BC, Confucius described the orchid as a flower of grace, elegance and beauty. The gracefully grown Orchideen belong to the world wide, large family of the boy-boys. Today, botanists know about 1,000 genera with up to 30,000 species.
