I love black orchid. Wanted it for ages, and finally got it for my birthday. It makes you want to inhale really deeply. Mmmmm. Smells to me of liquorice and sherbet and something else, though I'm sure that is not what it is supposed to actually smell of! All I know is that it is lovely.
Another one who loves black orchid. Wore it at our wedding! Got DH a men's one last year... can't rememeber what it is called though. In fact I may go and spray a bit of black orchid on before i go out!
After reading lots of effusive posts on here I finally got to try Black Orchid this weekend. Absolutely rotten. Really heavy and unpleasant. Both off-puttingly floral and masculine. Funeral parlour scent.
But then, I think Chanel No.5 is bottled cat pish, so what do I know.
