Happy 10 year Anniversary Tom Ford Black Orchid! In a decade you’ve become an icon and a staple on my fragrance wall. It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade! The Black Orchid empire is ever growing as is the whole Tom Ford beauty brand. There’s such magic and power with every product they launch. I fell like a million bucks every time I open a new Tom Ford Beauty product (my next splurge is the Tom Ford Venetian Bergamot fragrance and Tom Ford Electric Pink Lip Color — I actually have a running list of my next buys from them every time I purchase). The Tom Ford Orchid Collection continues to grow with some exciting new launches I’m excited to share!
Last week, I joined the brand *squeal* to celebrate this milestone at Christie’s New York for a private exhibition for Black Orchid and the Tom Ford Orchid Collection with an exclusive look at what’s ahead. For Starters the signature Black Orchid collection now includes a Solid Perfume, the Black Orchid Lip Color (worn above and swatched below) as well as the NIGHTBLOOM Powder in shade Black Boom, which is the stunning gold-ish highlighter seen below. Both carry the signature black texture stripe packaging of the original fragrance and are currently available and exclusive to tomford.com.
This month Tom Ford is launching the a new fragrance as part of the Orchid Collection. Pictured below, Orchid Soleil joins the family in the same iconic glass bottle, only in Rose Gold. The scent is a unique mix of the Black Orchid accord surrounded in tuberose as well as Spider Lily Accord, Vanilla, Chestnut, Cream Accord and Patchouli. It doesn’t do for me when the original does but I’m trying to get used to it. It’s a signature scent with a lot of personality that I’m still discovering.
The rest of the images are from the Black Orchid Collection exhibit from last week so unfortunately (or fortunately if you were there live in person) the lighting was black and sexy so the photos I took does not do the collection justice.
The third Tom Ford fragrance as part of the Orchid Collection may look familiar! It’s the Tom Ford Velvet Orchid, which launched a few years back. Featuring the same art-deco packaging of the original with a purple-gold tone color scheme they recently launched an ancillary Velvet Orchid Solid Perfume, as well as limited makeup collection which includes the NIGHTBLOOM POWDER in Velvet Bloom, and Lip Color in shade Velvet Orchid which exclusive to tomford.com.
Lastly, Tom Ford is reintroducing the Black Orchid Perfume Lalique Edition in September. The limited edition pure black crystal perfume bottle created exclusively for Tom Ford by Lalique for the fragrance’s original debut in November 2006. Designed for the true collector, it’s $990 and the small bottle pictured below, not to be confused with the giant, I-wish-it-was-for-sale-not-that-I-can-afford-it mega bottle used for display. This is limited edition and each bottle is numbered and currently available for pre-order on tomford.com.
