SOTD: Tom Ford Velvet Orchid.
The second fragrance from Tom Ford's Orchid range and my one true love. When I first tried this fragrance, I could not stop sniffing my wrists. I could not keep away from this and had to go back to the store to smell it again and again and I ended up buying this within 4-5 days of fist trying it.
The fragrance opens with a gorgeous combination of rum and honey on my skin. After a few minutes, the boozy note dies down and I can start smelling the vanilla, myrrh and the white florals along with the honey. After a couple of hours, the creamy sandalwood and labdanum base come through which easily linger on my skin for 10-12 hours.
Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin Orange, Honey, Rum
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Rose, Orchid, Orange blossoms, Magnolia, Narcissus, Heliotrope, Hyacinth
Base Notes: Peru Balsam, Myrrh, suede, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Labdanum
Velvet Orchid gives a warm, sexy and a mysterious vibe. I usually wear this fragrance when I want to make a statement, usually to important meetings or date nights. It is a potent fragrance so a couple of spritzes are sufficient to last the whole day. Velvet Orchid can be heavy and cloying on some people but fortunately smells divine on my skin. I would recommend trying it several times on skin before buying it.
