Perfume advice needed as I'm a numpty

Having smelled Tom Ford Black Orchid a few times, I decided finally to splurge my Christmas money and buy a bottle. Am not often in the shops as I live in the sticks, so it had taken me a while to get there. Was slightly rushed and got home to discover that I had accidentally picked up Tom Ford Noir - doh.
I won't get back to the shops for a few weeks to change it and am toying with just opening it, but at £53 it's a lot of money to spend and perhaps a silly risk. Any advice from people who've smelled either or both?

Oooh I think I would wait and try to take it back.

Orchid is bloody lovely. It's on my list for a full bottle come payday.

I haven't smelled the Noir though.

The Perfume Parlour make replica scents (which may be of interest anyway. I've found them to be very good), but they also list the "notes" for the fragrances they are replicating, which might be useful for you to compare? Here are your two:

Yes, I've read very good reviews of PP on the Tom Fords.

Hijack slightly to say don't even consider splashing out £3 or whatever though on any Chanel-alikes or Givenchy.....
