YSL Black Opium

I love to think of myself as an early adapter, but at some points I am quite ashamed of what a laggard I am. Look, I just got myself the Black Opium perfume by YSL! And no, not only to get the amazingly gorgeous packaging on a fancy Instagram shot. I had tried the scent in a sample and I think it's really the kind of smell that suits my warm skin.

The perfume houses vanilla, black coffee and white florals. If you have a high skin temperature like me, it becomes a really deep, sensual scent on you making it less floral and more sweet/bitter. It reminds me a little of the Lancôme Trésor range.

The flacon is very cute and rather small (I got the 50 ML bottle) and it weighs really light compared to how heavy it looks with all the glitter and black lining.

I love perfumes, but it's very hard for me to find a scent that I like on my skin. I'm really happy that I bought this one, it's a great addition to my collection next to my fresh Miu Miu fragrance, feminine Chanel Coco Noir and overly expensive I-don't-dare-to-use Amouage Reflection!

Are you going with the hype and buying this one too?

  1. Love this perfume so much! To me, it smells a little like a mix between La Vie Est Belle and Flowerbomb. :) It's so sweet and sexy! Thanks for sharing, great review. x
