The fragrance opens itself with bergamot, mandarin, Succan absolute (purified rum extract) and honey. At the core of this creation (made of "corporeal floral notes.") is Tom Ford's distinctive, “timeless” signature - an imaginary accord of black orchid blended with notes of velvet orchid, which gives the perfume its name, with intense Turkish rose oil and jasmine and a new accord of purple orchid that grows in the wilds of southern Brazilian coast. There are also additional floral notes of orange blossom, rose absolute, narcissus, hyacinth and heliotrope. The base is warm due to the rich flavors of Peru balsam, myrrh, labdanum, sandalwood, suede and vanilla.
It's a great smell
This fragrance is for the sexy vixen. It reminds me of the "It" girl in the corner of the club that everyone can't stop starring at. It's very different than anything out there. Sweet and spicy. I really like it.
Bought this as a gift for someone and she get complimented all the time
This scent is a double whammy! Can some thing be subtle and powerful at the same time? This is both. I have people asking me what I'm wearing all the time!
This is the absolute best. I am on my second order. I receive compliments everywhere I go. I put it on in the morning and it lasts all day. This is the best!!!
