American fashion designer Tom Ford is launching a new iteration of his modern classic Black Orchid eau de parfum (2006), which now comes in Black Orchid eau de toilette concentration with a new aromatic twist counting on the power-emitting tuberose to make sure this edt is not lighter, but different....
"Black Orchid Eau de Toilette is a distinctly different encounter with a more open, immediate expression. The custom-grown Tom Ford black orchid instantly takes center stage, inviting you inside in a way never before experienced in the classic signature fragrance."
Black Orchid has an instantly recognizable olfactory signature, so pushing it to be even more direct is going to be interesting to experience. How American a virtue too!
The composition opens on top notes of Black Truffle, Ylang-Ylang, Bergamot and Black Currant leading to a heart of Black Orchid, Black Iris, Black Plum while the base features Lotuswood, Patchouli, Coconut, Cinnamon, Balsam, Incense, Vetiver, Sandalwood and Vanilla.
Known for his adherence to a bold, retro-made-modern aesthetic in perfumery, you can nearly always expect something that will make you feel like you came straight out of a movie classic when you wear a Tom Ford jus. Ford is also a film director, incidentally. In fact, if TMC is your kind of cable TV channel, chances are you're probably going to mesh with his perfumes.
