Black Orchid's sister, in-stores this autumn

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. Based on jasmine absolute, Turkish rose oil and the beautiful scent from a Cattleva Leopoldii orchid, the signature perfume has the perfect feminine floral aroma. Including hints of honey and vanilla adding a sophisticated redolent. Raw suede accord infused with Comoro Island vanilla bind Velvet Orchid to the skin.

With 2006 Black Orchid being quite a heavy aroma the floral aspects of this new fragrance should result in a lighter, fresher take on the previous iconic fragrance.

"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."  commented Ford on the upcoming release.
