YSL Black Opium

Here is our review on YSL's latest perfume offering, Black Opium! Our older sister got us this perfume while she went on holiday last week and when she asked us both if we wanted any perfume from the airport, we immediately thought of Black Opium! This perfume was actually on my birthday wishlist but I couldn't resist getting it earlier! It's honestly one of my favourite perfumes already.

We've both been YSL perfume fans (Parisienne being our favourite!) and Black Opium does not disappoint! First off, the packing is gorgeous. The bottle is decorated with black glitter and sparkles, giving it a glam rock look. The fragrance has notes of coffee! Have you ever had a perfume with coffee in it before? Because I haven't! It doesn't smell like coffee at all though, haha! It's lovely and sweet and really feminine. I'm sure alot of people would find this perfume a little too sweet but it settles down after a few hours of wear. It also contains notes of vanilla and white florals. You should definately give this perfume a sniff - it's absolutely beautiful. Each day I wear it I fall in love with it even more.

Have you tried Black Opium? If so, do you love it too?

  2. Love the bottle! I've had a sniff in the shops and it doesn't really do anything for me but it would look super pretty on the beauty cabinet. x

  4. You got my attention when you said it has noted of coffee in it! I love anything that is musky, earthy so I need to give this a whiff when I see it. It sounds right up my alley!

  9. The packaging really is gorgeous! And at first when you said it is supposed to have notes of coffee I thought ooh maybe not for me as I don't like the smell of coffee, but as you went on to describe the smell well it sounds amazing! Definitely going to have to give this a smell in boots next time I'm there :)

  11. I bet this is just gorgeous, and I can see why you two wanted it! Its totally your style. Parisian is also one of my firm faves! Im not sure I am keen on their bottle designs though. I wish they were prettier! But whats inside is lush!
