So before you run out to buy some new luxe beauty items, let's talk a little bit about one of the inspirational fragrances - Velvet Orchid.IMG_8577 CCCThis fragrance warrants a woman with a unique character that is looking to deliver a powerful floral signature scent that has a bit of spice to it. It opens with an accord of black orchid blended with notes of velvet orchid, turkish rose oil and jasmine.

In order to distinguish it from its older sibling, Black Orchid, Velvet Orchid's team of perfumers packed it full of florientals and citrus notes such as orange blossom and rose absolute. The base of the fragrance is more feminine and warm due to the rich flavors of vanilla, amber, sandalwood and suede.CCC Tom Ford Velvet Orchid cccIMG_8578 ccc IMG_8576 (1) ccc
