Tom Ford Orchid Soleil Eau de Parfum | Review

Tom Ford Orchid Soleil Eau de Parfum | Review
Since my perfume collection was a little on the small side and I want to broaden my fragrance collection I decided to treat myself to a new perfume. I was looking around town and shopping centres looking for the perfect perfume for me and what did I choose? A totally random choice online LOL. Well not completely random because I do love the smell of Tom Ford perfumes, I just haven't tried them myself apart from the testers in Debenhams. The one I chose was a perfume I haven't smelt before but I just love the bottle. I chose Tom Ford Orchid Solier Eau Parfum

I am not the only one who chooses a perfume because of a nicely designed bottle, am I?


Tom Ford Orchid Soleil Eau Parfum comes in 3 different sizes; 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. I chose the 30ml option as I didn't know what the fragrance was like and didn't want to risk buying the larger bottle in case it wasn't my cup of tea. The packaging of the perfume is sublime! It comes in a lovely rose gold pink box and the actual perfume bottle has the same rose gold and the actual bottle shape is inspired by the 1920s and 1920s architecture. On the front of the bottle, it has a gold label embossed into the bottle and just under the lid it also has a golden string ribbon with the TF locket hanging off it, how nice is that?

It is described as having an oriental floral scent. It has a warm radiant yet sensual smell that I have to say is one of the most strong and most fragrance rich I have smelt in a perfume.  I can honestly say that I smell the different notes in this perfume throughout the day, which I just love!

Top notes: cypress, bitter orange and pink pepper
Middle notes: tuberose and red spider lily
Base notes orchid, patchouli, vanilla and chestnut cream.

I have used this perfume a fair few times now and I have to say I love it! ( which is a good thing since I never tried it before buying it) The floral elements in this are enriching and the smell doesn't fade during the day which quite a lot of perfumes do after a while. Since this perfumes price starts at £58 a bottle for 30ml this is my special occasion perfume but saying that I like to use it whenever I feel like being a bit more extravagant, which I got to admit I like doing every now and again because it's nice to treat ourselves right?

This is the first Tom Ford product I have tried and I have to say I am very impressed with it! I really want to add more of the perfumes to my collection eventually... especially Mandarino Di Amalfi Acqua which is a gorgeous blue bottled perfume that smells fruity and refreshing.
