Combining a heady, hypnotic sent with sophisticated design that calls to mind vintage makeup packaging, Black Orchid Eau De Parfum (the enigmatic designer’s first fragrance, originally launched in 2006) captures Ford’s signature opulence, and is the iconic cornerstone of the luxury brand’s sought-after beauty range,

Classically elegant, it continues to be a beloved perfume and its popularity endures — it has pride of place on countless nightstands and vanities, and is tucked away in handbags around the world.

Something about the nostalgic design and rich fragrance resonates with both men and women, and it has become the signature scent for many people, conjuring up memories and comfort.

With its gleaming bottle and gold accents, Black Orchid has always been a favoured choice for gifting, offers a luxurious unboxing experience.

Now, with Mother's Day in sight, Tom Ford's Black Orchid Collection has added significance and is the ultimate gift idea for the discerning mother figure (or any special person in your life).

Evolving this beloved fragrance, in this collection the original eau de parfum sits alongside Black Orchid Parfum. Released last year, Black Orchid Parfum is an intensified iteration of the scent, housed in a golden bottle. With this scent, the brand turned up the intensity on fragrance notes like ylang-ylang, black plum, and rum absolute. It’s available in three size — 100ml, 50ml, and a 10ml travel spray, offering plenty of choice.

The whole range makes a luxurious gift for Mother’s Day, or you could be selective; the travel size parfum is a handy choice for an on-the-go woman.

And of course, one can’t go past the original itself, Black Orchid Eau De Parfum — a classic for a reason.
