Love Potion No. 9

Posted January 23, 2009
When Tom Ford launched his Black Orchid fragrance, it was fitting that the sexpot designer included supposed aphrodisiac ingredients like black truffle, violet, and iris. It shouldn't be a surprise then, that with Valentine's Day approaching, Ford would debut an edible-smelling body cream. Although made with the same notes as the parfum—which smelled smoky, with a high dose of vetiver and incense, with sandalwood creeping through—the luscious, highly moisturizing cream smells more sweet, with bursts of vanilla and black currant. Sexy and perfect if you need an extra bit of Valentine's Day mojo.
