Luxurious, one-of-a-kind—Rare is the best way to describe Tom Ford Black Orchid. The scent of the scarce and custom grown Black Orchid is what makes this fragrance different and stand out from its competitors, no less than belonging to the most opulent perfumes available from top luxury brands in the market today.
The combination of woody and rich, fruity scents is what makes the Tom Ford Black Orchid so strikingly intense and sensuous. The exotic aroma of black orchid is blended with a hint of some of the richest natural scents—ylang-ylang, French jasmine, black currant, citrus, and black truffle, coupled with the undertones of dark chocolate, incense, amber, balsam, vanilla, sandalwood, and patchouli.
The custom grown (and über rare) TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID is the show-stopping note in this incredibly luxurious scent. Sultry woods and rich fruit accords help to bring out the skin’s natural perfume, and the jet-black, art-deco inspired bottle adds to the fragrance’s overall glamour.
Introduced in the market in 2006, Black Orchid is available in 50 ml and 100 ml bottles that sell anywhere between US$90 and US$150 a bottle. The Black Orchid Limited Edition sells at 15 ml. Black orchid being so rare, this perfume has had limited distribution up to this day.
