I rarely buy perfume for myself, mainly because I wear the same one (Thierry Mugler ‘Alien’) 90 percent of the time. But a couple of months ago while browsing in Boots my Mum led me over to smell YSL Black Opium. She assured me it was the most amazing scent ever.
There is a saying ‘Mum knows best’…..
Seriously it is stunning!
The base notes are vanilla, the top notes black coffee, and the heart notes white florals. Which combined make it so unusual and just so beautiful!
A sweet, yet sexy, feminine scent. In my opinion, it is suited to both day and night time wear. If I had to pick I’d say that as there is a slight heaviness to it (though not overpowering like the original Opium) so it leans more towards being a night time appropriate scent.
I can’t finish without giving a tip of my hat to the bottle.
Black sparkles and Rose Gold! Thank you YSL my dressing table totally appreciates the packaging porn!!!
