Heavy
Wicked, dark, heavy. I've got pictures going through my head, but hello. It was too much for me then. Another heavy scent without this wicked touch I find at Montale Golden Aoud. For fans of heavy fragrances, undefined flowery.

A great kind of B.O.
Crazy strong, how is this an edt?

Comes across as an edp or concentree, one spray and that was well enough.

I get that awesome, sophisticated, deep earthy aroma of truffle. Lasts forever, radiates dang far and the drydown is more masculine.

If you spray more than once and wear in tight quarters or work space then I wouldn't blame others for asking you to take the day off.

This is definitely for cooler weather and more formal events, certainly not for going to a pub and watching a match.

Black Orchid EDT
This review is on the edt version of the original Black Orchid. Normally marketed to women, this has gained some popularity with men as well. How unisex is this version? Please watch for more.

Androgynous sweet cucumber
Black Orchid EDP has been titled "cucumber chocolate" by renown perfume critic Luca Turin, and it is so match. Not very far from the original version which is a nighty fragrance, the EDT flanker stays nigh with less chocolate of form sweetness that makes it capable for daytime. This sweet creamy air comes from the note he once used in For Man Extreme; tuber; to get the same fungal effect, and, honestly, the result is much better than EDP version. Nevertheless, Ford could not or would not get rid of that cucumber layer that blatantly dances in the opening till the heart layer. The EDP version is used by men as much as by women, that, to be straight, for me it is like men with 6.2ft height and 12 shoe size wearing pantyhose!! Black Orchid, both EDP and EDT, have strong level of carnality, nevertheless, at the same time both have kind of immaturity. A kind of oxymoron feature behind punchy insisting sexiness and incognito presence of character. Never mind, who cares! What is good is good and it sells so.

More concise & approachable take on Black Orchid.
After a long drive to Neiman Marcus for Creed-related purposes, I nearly walked right past this beauty, sitting in a sad, dark, lonely corner. I'm glad I caught it out of the corner of my eye and ran over, "Ohh! The Eau de Toilette!" I became school-girl giddy at the opportunity to try this one, but sadly I had dozens of Creeds all up and down my forearms.. So, I only got to smell it on the card.

First, so you know where my perspective is coming from - Black Orchid EDP is probably my absolute favorite. Though, admittedly, it's a once in a while, special occasion kind of fragrance. (It's more of a secret weapon!) Black Orchid gives you that just-fallen-hard-in-love stomach ache that sends your head swirling in a way you feel like you can't control. But wait a sec, I'm here to comment on the Eau de Toilette!

The EDT smells, to me, almost exactly like the Parfum, just without that swirly, weak-in-the-knees witchcraft element. Oh, it's still plenty sly, seductive, and likewise gives you that tingly sensation after smelling it, but overall it's much more concise, approachable, and makes less of a fuss about itself. If you like Black Orchid, but don't feel up to making the statement it requires, EDT would be the perfect fit. It's a bit softer, with a little less smoke and a little more fruit, and altogether less polarizing. It's also more of a feminine take on Black Orchid, whereas the EDP seems rather unisex to me.

All in all, if you dig the EDP, you'll almost certainly dig the EDT. They're both otherworldly lovely and unique.

More subtle and masculine than the EdP. Still unisex, still great performance. Not so overpowering. Dark florals. Very unique.
