Velvet Orchid, a remarkable perfume creation from Tom Ford that vividly reminds of the enormously popular Black Orchid, launched in 2016. In fact, this one is slightly amended and refined version that came out in 2014 as a successor of the Black Orchid’s lavish legacy. Velvet is ultra-feminine and grandiose with a seductive character.
From the very beginning, you can feel a powerful dramatic sensation through bergamot, mandarin, Succan absolute (purified rum extract) and honey. The perfume’s core conceals “corporeal floral notes” - a characteristic Tom Ford’s signature centered around velvet orchid (that gave the perfume its name) blended with Turkish rose oil, jasmine, orange blossom, rose absolute, narcissus, hyacinth, and heliotrope.
The base stage is lavished with the opulent blend of Vanilla, myrrh, suede, sandalwood, labdanum, and balsam. The bottle features an elegant, graceful look with bold vertical texture and the signature brass nameplate. Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum is suitable for night wear.
