What Does Velvet Orchid Smell Like?
Velvet Orchid is the sugary sister of Black Orchid. It keeps the citrus-green bergamot of the original Eau de Parfum but swaps the earthy black truffle for sticky sweet honey. The honey preps you for a hypnotic, dramatic orchid blend in the heart, which pairs a velvet orchid accord with Tom Ford's exclusive black orchid. The elusive, luxurious orchid tone maintains a sense of sweetness right through to the base, while a lingering boozy rum tone adds warmth and texture.
Top Notes: Italian Bergamot, Honey.
Heart Notes: Velvet Orchid Accord, Black Orchid.

Why It’s Escentual:
Tom Ford’s first fragrance Black Orchid was launched in 2006. It was initially created as a women's perfume, but men loved it just as much - and they still do. As a result, Tom Ford revisited his classic in 2014 to create Velvet Orchid, an uber-feminine alternative. But just like the original, Velvet Orchid is loved just as much by men - as long as you have a sweet tooth, this is the one for you.
If you're a Tom Ford fan and value his attention to detail, you'll notice Velvet Orchid's nods to the original. For example, the black orchid accord is back - Tom Ford created it so you won't find it anywhere apart from his Orchid fragrances. The bottle shares similarities too. It has the same art deco-inspired bottle, gold-plated label and hand-tied cord, but the glass is now an opulent dark purple hue.
The Best Way To Use It:
For the best performance, spritz Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum onto your pulse points - particularly the neck and wrists. Do not rub the fragrance as this will alter the way it develops.
The Sustainable Side:
The outer packaging can be recycled.
