Fragrance Find - Tom Ford Velvet Orchid

It's been a little while since I've shared a new fragrance pick with you.

And that's because, quite frankly, outside of a few new scents that I shared with you over the summer  I haven't smelled anything that has REALLY wowed me (and something that I think will wow you too).

But then I tried TOM FORD Velvet Orchid Eau de Parfum Spray - and literally said, "WOW".
This is a decadent, sexy and perfect-for-Fall fragrance that is worth the splurge (like Tom's Violet Blonde).

The opening of this scent is deep, and feels like it's seeping with luscious plums.  It's a forceful opening, but quickly begins to soften and meld with the floral notes and the citrus. 
This is a perfect example of a scent which is NOT light...but not dark either.  It's a very unique mid-way point between the two.

On my skin TOM FORD Velvet Orchid lasted for HOURS with significant silage.  It is the scent you wear when you want someone (or your sweetheart) to say "What are you wearing?" when you walk past them or into a room - I got TONS of compliments when wearing this one!
The beauty of this scent is even though it's deep with floral notes , there's still a softness and sweetness to it that completes and rounds it out.

The dry down is simply scrumptious - and seems to also go on for hours and hours with touches of honey and sweet rum.  While this is the perfect evening and "big night out" scent for Fall, used with a slightly lighter touch, this can absolutely work for day time or more casual situations in the colder months.

This is a scent that is complex, rich and NEEDS to be in your scent collection. Not to mention, the classic Tom Ford bottle design/color is also a masterpiece for the Fragrance collector.

P.S. If you already own and are a fan of TOM FORD Black Orchid, you will also love this, and many of the same notes are there, but Velvet Orchid will feel lighter and more transparent. - RLB
