Black Orchid was created by perfumers of the fragrance company Givaudan in 2006. It was announced as an oriental chypre. The top notes are French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant, and effervescent citrus. In the floral-spicy heart, dwells Tom Ford's black orchid, more imaginary than real, and the base combines woodsy notes (patchouli and sandalwood), dark chocolate, incense, amber, vetiver, vanilla, and balsam.
Black Orchid is opulent and classically dark; its fragrance is in line with the best creations of the best perfume houses. A luxurious and sensual fragrance with a rich, dark trace of black orchid and spices, it is modern and timeless. It remains to be said that Black Orchid is long lasting and with a widespread aura.
Tom Ford introduced his first and also his most popular fragrance Black Orchid in 2006. Black Orchid Eau de Toilette, a new version based on the scent of tuberose, came out in October 2015. The new version is announced as a distinctly different encounter of the Black Orchid fragrance and it invites you to experience the seductive breakthrough in a new light with its own olfactive journey.
The top notes of black truffle and ylang-ylang are mixed with fresh bergamot and black currant. The heart of the perfume is Tom Ford's fictional "Black Orchid" with tuberose and fruity accords. The composition gets more profound with oriental base of lotus wood, patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla and incense.
