Tom Ford is one of those designers that just screams sexy.  His advertisements ooze class but with a fun twist... The original Black Orchid was on my wishlist for a while after smelling it in a local Debenhams and falling in love with the scent but I never got round to buying it.  Last year I noticed the new release of Velvet Orchid and decided to give that a whiff to see how it compared to the original, I was sold instantly and crossed off Black Orchid and added Velvet Orchid to my wishlist instead.
I ended up getting Velvet Orchid as a Christmas gift from David in the 50ml size which will last me ages.  The bottle is very luxurious and modern, the deep purple shade is very classy with a feminine touch and the gold hardware brings it to life.

Top Notes:  Honey, Rum, Bergamot, Mandarin Orange
Heart Notes:  Jasmine, rose oil, orchid, orange blossom, magnolia, heliotrope, narcissus, magnolia
Base Notes:  Vanilla, Myrrh, Suede, Sandalwood, Labdanum, Balsam
The perfect thing about Tom Ford fragrances is the fact that you only need one or two sprays and it will last all day without the need of a re-spray.  This perfume is very powerful, musky and oriental and is one of those scents you can wear during the day taking it into the evening without being too over the top.

This is certainly one of my fave perfumes and it makes me feel glamorous when I wear it... now I just need to try out the other TF scents!

You can purchase Velvet Orchid from Debenhams for £72.00 for 50ml.
