BLACK ORCHID from Tom Ford

Top Notes:   Black Truffle, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Black Currant, Mandarin, Jasmine, Black Gardenia
Heart Notes:  Lotus wood, Black Orchid
Base Notes:  Dark Chocolate, Patchouli, Incense, Vetiver, Vanilla Tears, Balsam, Sandalwood 

An exclusive perfume I would say.  It might not be everyone's choice.  The complex blend of different fragrances might not be appealing to some noses.

On the top note, as soon as you wear, the Black truffle combination dominates and gets to smell sweet.  It could even cause a bit of headache for some.  But as it dries down, Patchouli plays its game with other fragrances in the base.

Perfume which is ideal for Evening Wear which is strong and lasts long. Fragrance is targeted to be seductive and hence most suitable for Woman and not for girls :)
This perfume finds its place on the top 5 in my list!  Anytime I would go back to.
