Tom Ford Black Orchid

8/03/2017



There are perfume notes and combinations which change on people's skin when it's hot, some are almost unperceivable during cooler weather and some simply don't work with everyone's body chemistry. Whereas notes of cinnamon and incense are likely to evoke memories of a "winter environment" (e.g. Christmas and New Year holidays), citrus and soapy notes are more intuitively associated with a "summer environment" (beach holidays). However, there is a way to wear your favorite perfume with powerful sillage - just apply accordingly (1-2 spritzes max) while I find lighter scents to be too weak to pierce the cold. Let's set my little perfume-wearing guide aside, here's one that could make, break and rewrite all the known rules. 

Tom Ford Black Orchid is one of those thought-provoking and scandal-incuding perfumes. Is it just for women - or can also men wear it? Is it strictly a winter fragrance? How much spritzes is too much? The gorgeous and utterly luxurious black bottle holds a unique juice which is a true opinion-divider and it certainly isn't for everyone. With dominant notes of Mexican chocolate, truffles, patchouli, orchid, vanille and incense - it's a combo of warm spicy, rich earthy and cocoa. Very unique, very, dark, very intense, very strong in character. A seemingly grotesque combination of notes produced such a dark beauty. It's quite interesting and totally unisex in my opinion - although it does tend slightly to the feminine side. Kudos to every man who can pull it off with confidence - and every woman who can carry out its masculinity!

I definitely love it, although it's certainly not for the summer for me - it's a powerhouse of a scent, a potent beast and probably would be a bit cloying on a hot sunny day. Perhaps on chilly summer night with just one spritz, it may pass for being (relatively) acceptable. Although, I expect someone to be outrages nonetheless. I will definitely be wearing it during the winter and autumn. Worn lightly and discreetly. It is multidimensional and elegant. Sometimes I think it is a living organism that resides on my skin. Its heavy 'til the end - there's no phase of fading away. The sillage is huge, comparable to Angel (or even stronger). This perfume is sublime. A knockout. A signature. A Noir. It's not for the faint of heart. 

  • Postoje parfemske note i kombinacije istih koje se transformišu na koži uslijed porasta žive u termometru, neke su potpuno neprimjetne na oštrom zimskom zraku a neke jednostavno ne idu uz pojedinu "hemiju" kože. Dok note cimeta i tamjana često bude sjećanja na "zimsku atmosferu" (Božićni i Novogodišnji praznici), citrusne i sapunaste note intuitivno više "vuku" na "ljetnu atmosferu" (odmor na plaži, more). Ipak, postoji način da iznesete svoj omiljeni parfem moćne aure i trajnosti - samo pripazite da korištenje i nanošenje budu ograničeni na 1-2 šprica dok lično smatram da su laganiji mirisi nedovoljno jaki da se izbore sa oštrinom hladnog zimskog zraka. Ostavimo moj mini vodič za korištenje parfema po strani (za sada),  danas je tema parfem koji bi mogao ispisati, izbrisati i razdrmati sva poznata pravila.
  • Tom Ford Black Orchid je miris koji izaziva bujicu osjećanja, podijeljena mišljenja - kontroverzan je, skandalozan. Da li je samo za žene - ili ga mogu nositi i muškarci? Da li je strogo zimski parfem? Koliko špriceva je previše? Prekrasna i ultimativno luksuzna bočica krije tekućinu koja uistinu nije za svakoga. Sa dominantnim notama meksičke čokolade, tartufa, orhideje, vanilije i tamjana - kombinacija je vrućih začinskih, zemljanih nota i kakaa. Veoma je jedinstven, veoma mračan, veoma intenzivan i veoma karakteran miris. Naizgled groteskna kombinacija nota je proizvela unikatnu tamnu ljepotu. Veoma je interesantan i smatram ga uniseks mirisom - iako ima primjese koje bi tradicionalno mogli smatrati ženstvenim. Skidam kapu svakom muškarcu koji ga sa samopouzdanjem nosi - kao i svakoj ženi koja se umije nositi sa muževnom stranom ovog parfema!
  • Meni se dopao iako ga nikako ne bih mogla nositi tokom ljeta - izuzetno je opojan, prava zvijer i mislim da bi tokom vrelog ljetnog dana bio zagušljiv. Eventualno bi mogla proći jedna kapljica u svježoj ljetnoj noći. Iako vjerujem da bi i tada izazvao oprečne reakcije. Multidimenzionalan je i elegantan. Nekada mi se čini kao da je zaseban organizam koji živi na mojoj koži. Žestok je do samog kraja - kod njega nema faze kada počinje da blijedi. Aura mi je ogromna, može se porediti sa onom Muglerovog Angela (čak je i jača). Uzvišen je. Obara sa nogu. Lični potpis. Noir. Nije za one slabog srca. Ako mislite da se vaše može sa njim izboriti, potražite ga u Inoma Concept Store u Alta Shopping centru.

  8. Tom Ford Black Orchid has such a nice bottle, it looks really luxury and I love the photos you took. I like the fact it's unisex, that's really modern of them. Also, I would probably wear this scent during the colder seasons too.

  9. That does sound like such a unique mixture of scents and smells. I am not sure whether a guy could wear it but I can understand why it would make a nice perfume. And it is a very beautiful bottle.
