Fragrance Description: Brilliant. Lavish. Refined. Velvet Orchid is a fragrance that lives in the black orchid world of glamorous mystique, sharing its aura yet standing apart with its own compelling identity. It pushes the D.N.A. of the original Black Orchid into new territory, evolving hidden facets of the original's olfactive structure with extravagant ingredients to reveal even more brilliance, femininity, and attractive force.
About the Fragrance: In Velvet Orchid, the daring and dramatic floral signature of black orchid is the inspiration for a warm and enveloping fragrance that is lavished with shimmering freshness, dramatic petals, honey, and rum. The woods and spices of the original scent recede and a contrasting veil of petally floralcy casts a shadow of ultra-femininity throughout. A new character emerges: one that pulls rather than pushes; and that is more harmonious than mysterious—elegantly refined and polished. Velvet Orchid has an addicting beauty that seduces with a fluid and textured touch. It is the rippling black silk next to black orchid's sleek marble. Velvet Orchid masterfully embellishes and evolves the Black Orchid legacy.
"To this day, velvet is my favorite fabric. The woman who wears this is not a wildflower. She’s an urban flower, she’s a hothouse flower, she’s an orchid."—Tom Ford
