Tom Ford Black Orchid is a gorgeous, sensuous dark floral that has turned into one of the classics in this line. Rich, deep, dark fruits with vanilla and incense and florals. Just absolutely beautiful.

Reviews of Tom Ford Black Orchid
From Allure - "This unisex fragrance smells like a sensual cross between a warm, creamy flambé dessert and a bouquet of exotic flowers. (Note: Despite the incense and patchouli in the blend, there's nothing hippie-dippy about it.)"
From Now Smell This - "Black Orchid starts right off with a bang — it is a statement fragrance, make no mistake about it. There is citrus, there is lots of sugar, there are heady floral notes, there is jammy fruit. Tempering all of that is a strong undertone of something earthy and dark (the black truffle accord, presumably) and vaguely off-kilter, in a good way."
From Bois de Jasmin -"Black Orchid certainly weaves some retro elements into its composition, yet it remains a modern oriental, where the animalic growl is replaced by the murmur of luscious woody vanilla. The best features of Black Orchid are revealed upfront—the promised seductive darkness of patchouli and the savory earthiness of truffle shimmer through the sheer citrusy top notes. An indolic whisper of white flowers lends its characteristic narcotic breath. It is the femme fatale entrance—one may not be attracted to what one sees, but one cannot but notice it."
