This is an interesting concept as far as notes go, but it really didn't work for me. This is really stifling in its syrupiness, to the point where I actually feel a little bit ill when when I try to wear it sometimes. I agree with those below who say it's cloying. Doesn't work for me like it does for others, but good for those who like it!
Will buy again

I got 17 samples to try and this one was easily in my top three favs along with Lady Million and Gucci Flora. Very nice scent.

This another of my favorite "mystery woman" perfumes. The florals are very striking and this will last all night, which is when I use it.

For me it's too cloying and overpowering.

After trying black orchid for a couple days I started to not like it so much. It seemed a little messy but this is alot cleaner. Lasts forever just like black orchid but isn't as confusing for my nose.

Excellent longevity. :(Had trouble deciding between 3 and 4 stars. 3-and-a-half?)
Very sweet floral

Very sweet, somewhat cloying floral. Easier to wear than Black Orchid, but not nearly as interesting.

Wanted it to be just a tiny bit spicier. Was waiting for the other layers to come through but it dries so sweet on me...

I was a bit scared to buy this perfume, even though it was just a sample. I heard that it was a love or hate thing, but I took the plunge and decided to buy it. I'm so glad I did. In the beginning you get a bitter sweetness..one would imagine this is the "orchid" coming through. It may also be the honey note. In the middle stage, I would personally describe this as a dark chocolate raspberry truffle. Then in the end you're left with a beautiful and subtle chocolate and vanilla mixture. This may sound like a sweet perfume(which it is) but it still somehow manages to have an eerie vibe to it.
I will definitely be buying a full bottle of this!!!
I can't pull this off.
by Jeffrey on Aug 22, 2015
I bought a decant of this because I read on other fragrance forums that some men not only like this fragrance but can pull this off. I just can't, like some other women's fragrances that I tried. It's a nice fragrance but just smells too feminine on me. And yet I don't believe this is of the faint of heart for ladies either. This smells sweet and also tropical on me. There's this other darker depth to this that's different from other floral perfumes. This has some dessert notes in it but doesn't smell like a gourmand fragrance. Maybe I need to revisit this in the Fall/Winter to retry but for now, no.

smells very similar to black orchid. i prefer the original, personally.
this one is unisex, btw...
Not as Unique as Black Orchid
by Nazia on Feb 24, 2015
I really wanted to like this, but I just didn't find it very special. Maybe because of the lighter formula? I also found it did not last on my skin.

I love this scent.. at first it can be a little strong but a couple sprays go a long way. The scent has the right amount of sandalwood vanilla bergamot notes. There's a slight powdery soft scent.. and sweet rum. It's hard to describe all the notes but I love it and will get a bottle as soon as I can afford it. It is worth trying a sample and give yourself time to enjoy its complexity.
lush but lighter

Thus has the lush sensuality of Ford's Black Orchid in a lighter formula. Both are lovely, but this is a bit more versatile.
