Fashion designer Tom Ford will bring out his new fragrance Velvet Orchid this year, the brain child of a creative team that consisted of no less than five persons including Ford himself – working with expert perfumers Yann Vasnier, Calice Becker, Shyamala Maisondieu and Antoine Maisondieu from the fragrance company Givaudan.
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid opens itself with bergamot, mandarin, Succan absolute (purified rum extract) and honey. At the core of this creation (made of ‘corporeal floral notes’). is Tom Ford’s distinctive, ‘timeless’ signature – an imaginary accord of black orchid blended with notes of velvet orchid, which gives the perfume its name, with intense Turkish rose oil and jasmine and a new accord of purple orchid that grows in the wilds of southern Brazilian coast. There are also additional floral notes of orange blossom, rose absolute, narcissus, hyacinth and heliotrope. The base is warm due to the rich flavors of Peru balsam, myrrh, labdanum, sandalwood, suede and vanilla.
Velvet Orchid retains Black Orchid’s instantly recognisable elements: a fresh, lush petal facet; animalic notes and skin-lacquering warmth, and re-imagines these elements into a fragrance with a uniquely compelling nature.
This new luxurious perfume is available in beautiful purple bottles of the classic Tom Ford design in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum concentration.
