Perfume is the most intense form of memory. ~ Jean Paul Guerlain
I cannot think that will pass a day without wearing a fragrance. It’s not easy to find the smell that suits you. The smell that will be your signature. I have heard from a friend about this fragrance and I thought that it worths to go to a fragrances shop and try it.
To be honest my hopes were high from the time I saw the package and the bottle. The TOM FORD Velvet Orchid is an oriental, rich, spicy, and intensely floral fragrance that brought to my mind oriental, luxurious and seductive scenes like those from movies. It is definitely a dramatic’s femme fatale scent, enriched with notes of vanilla, dramatic petals, rum, honey, Hyacinth, Jonquil, Cattleya Leopoldii Orchid, Suede Accord, and citrus (Orange Blossom). Oriental and exotic the same time. It might be from the expensive fragrances, but it worth every cent. I tried it on the morning (approximately 10:00-11:00 o’clock) and I smell my clothes before I was going to bath (approximately 7:00 o’clock) and I could still smell it! The other thing that I quite like about it is that they made it in three sizes, 30ml, 50ml, and 100ml, in order to buy the one that you prefer or you afford more.
TOM FORD VELVET ORCHID IS AN ORIENTAL FLORAL THAT EVOLVES THE CARNAL GRANDEUR AND SEDUCTIVE POWER OF THE ICONIC TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID INTO AN UBER-FEMININE FRAGRANCE LAVISHED WITH NOTES OF COOL CITRUS, DRAMATIC PETALS, HONEY AND RUM.
