TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID

When you think of Tom Ford, you tend to visualize one of the most influential designers of the last decade. Well did you know that he has just created a new fragrance? Black Orchid is the first entry in the Tom Ford Beauty Collection and consists of perfume, three sizes of eau de parfum and a sophisticated ancillary collection.

When I tried Black Orchid I found it to be warm and sensual, nothing like I had smelt before.

How to properly describe Black Orchid:

- Sensuous top notes of Black Truffle and Ylang mingled with fresh Bergamot and delectable Black Currant.
- Dramatic middle notes of dark, tempting Florals and rich Fruit Accords. The heart is deepened with the intoxicating Lotus Wood.
- Decadent base notes of Patchouli, Incense and Vetiver. Vanilla Tears add a fluid creaminess to warm Balsam and smooth Sandalwood.

The bottle for this collection has been carefully designed and reflects Tom Ford’s taste for elegance, style and perfection. When I read that the bottle was created by Lalique my jaw dropped. Lalique is definitely the best crystal craftsmen in the world and has been creating exquisite pieces for over 100 years. My mother has a book on Lalique so I know a little about it.

Why Lalique? Ford says “For me Lalique was the only choice. The Lalique heritage, tradition, craftsmanship and legacy of iconic fragrance bottles made the decision an easy one.”

This art deco-inspired, jet black glass bottle, will look as good on your dressing table as it will smell on your skin.

Available at Neiman Marcus and Holt Renfrew
