Tom Ford Black Orchid Christmas Gift Ideas

Hello guys so here is another segment to my ideas for Christmas for you, this is the third week of a fragrance dropped in, I'm a big fan of fragrances and I know from working in Boots before a lot of you are big fragrance and aftershave lovers to.  I used to love it when men came into the store literally days coming before Christmas looking for inspiration for there daughters wives or girlfriends or family member.  My favourite thing to be asked was what perfume do you wear or what perfume do you like??

So today I am talking about the iconic Tom Ford Black Orchid Spray sometimes I feel that this scent has been referred to as marmite people either absolutely love it or hate it not many inbetweens, personally I hate marmite I'm completely not even on the shelf with this I really hate it.  But with this scent I have to be honest I was on the shelf I wasn't sure for months whether i liked it.  Here is what the scent us described as.

A luxurious and sensual fragrance of rich, dark accords and an alluring potion of Black Orchids, and spice, Tom Fords black orchid is both modern and timeless.  bottled in fluted black glass black orchid makes an unforgettable statement of iconic style and worldly glamour.


This to me is a completely perfect  discription of the fragrance for me at first I found it to heady and strong and made me feel quite sick, but then as sometimes I'm an over sprayer I've learnt less is more with this one as the scent is not a light one you only need a little bit. If your a light perfume fan this is not for you or a floral lover again this is not for you.  In my opinion this is not a day time fragrance either this is definitely an evening scent.  As I mentioned before about my over spraying I take this much lighter now and spray a little bit before going out, some of my friends say to me you have got that perfume on again haven't you, that to me means it's very recognisable, it definitely is distinctive but they great thing about perfume is they smell different on us all, one scent that might not smell  nice on you may smell amazing on someone else or vice versa.

Why I like this, to me now I've got used to being gentle with the spraying I think this is so unique and classy I feel like a proper grown up with this on, and it reminds me of a lady with a bright lip and some sharp black tailoring on.  It's definitely a conversation starter scent.

So with this one as I would say to anyone go and spray it first walk around shopping for half an hour and then smell I bet you will be hooked.

This is available at John Lewis Tom Ford and currently there is money off to woo hoo..
