It is a statement fragrance that is described as an oriental chypre – a rich and spicy woody fragrance. It has top notes of French jasmine, black truffle, black currant, ylang-ylang and effervescent citrus. The heart notes hold the spicy floral punch of Tom Ford’s black orchid which lead to the woody base noes of dark chocolate, amber, vetiver, vanilla, balsam, patchouli and sandalwood.

As opposed to the brighter and more feminine Velvet Orchid, Black Orchid is a classically dark fragrance that basks itself in luxury. Honestly, it took me a long time to come around to Black Orchid because of its smoldering spicy notes. I tend to favor more fruity and floral notes – more on the sweeter side – and Black Orchid definitely took me on a…

GIVEAWAY: Lorac Pro Palette 3, Open Internationally

Glamour Vortex

LORDY LOO, I’ve neglected this blog. “Updating sporadically” should be my new tagline. Between still working on my room and college, I haven’t had much time or interest for this blog. Interest being the main one. I feel like a recovering addict. A new makeup release used to eat at me for days, even weeks, until I could get my grubby paws on it. Aside from a few tiny purchases and a few birthday presents, I haven’t bought makeup for six months now and I don’t really miss it all that much! However…

When I saw that I could order this new palette early with my Platinum Perk access (the Makeup Addicts Anonymous therapist never talks about the rewards of our addiction!) I just thought “aw heck, errybody loves Lorac, right?” and decided to atone for my grievous sins.

So who wants the brand-spankin’ new Lorac Pro Palette 3
