Tom Ford Black Orchid: My favourite fragrance

Ever since I did those fragrance illustrations for Best Health magazine I've been wanting to do similar illustrations, using some of the fragrances I love. Tom Ford's Black Orchid is my absolute #1 perfume! Most fragrances are too fruity or sweet or generically floral for me. Black Orchid is warm, spicy, woody, and very unique.

Here is YouTube 'fumehead Katie Puckrik's review of BO, wherein I learned many things. For one, Tom Ford requested that the perfume smell like... A man's crotch. Hm.

Anyway, it's gorgeous and I hope I can grab some time to put some colour into this drawing!

Adorable illustration (a tinted version would be welcomed!). I went on Katie Puckrik's channel and took a look, although I feel a little awkward at her pauses (in between her fast speech) I supposed to laugh or something?

Thanks, Citrine! I suppose the pauses are for dramatic/comedic effect :P. I like the way she describes the way perfumes smell, it can be pretty tough!
