Black Opium By YSL

An amazing soul blessed me with this fragrance for my birthday and man oh man have I fallen in love?!

For the purposes of this review I’ve had to park my Flora by Gucci which has been my favorite fragrance for the longest time ever. I might not be so loyal to Gucci after my experience with this Black Opium.

The Fragrance

Black Opium, a feminine fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent – glam rock fragrance full of mystery and energy. An addictive gourmand floral with notes of: Black Coffee – for a shot of adrenaline; White Florals – to instantly seduce; and Vanilla – for sweetness and sensuality.

Fragrance Notes:

Top Notes: Black Coffee

Heart Notes: White Florals

Base Notes: Vanilla

I am not a fan of the black coffee but I have fallen in love with Black Opium as a whole. The black coffee brings a dark mystery to this fragrance which I have grown fond of over the past week. The mystery doesn’t last long with the alluring sweetness scent of vanilla masking it for most of the day.

This fragrance will have everyone paying attention. Trust me I have both my female and male colleagues, friends too drooling over this fragrance. It’s so unforgettable. I loved Flora by Gucci because it has that sweetness which has, become part of my character. However, the seductiveness and sensuality of Black Opium has awakened the woman in me.

I had never paid attention to Yves Saint Laurent as a brand but with this fragrance, they have captured me, body and soul.

I have noticed that most people who have been loyal to YSL were a bit disappointed with the release of this fragrance, however, I honestly think it is the best I have tried thus far.

If you haven’t found that fragrance that speaks to you, spells out your personality or you just want to turn heads, I would advise you to give it a try and share your thoughts on it.

The fragrance is available in 30ml, 50ml, and 90ml.

You can pick it up in, Edgars, Foschini etc.

Until next post, stay Fab and Flawless.

  1. I think this is one of the most vital info for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But wanna remark
    on some general things, The website style is wonderful,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job, cheers

  2. “opium” is the older heavier scent “black opium” is the new scent… For those who love back opium you must try ” La vie est belle” by Lancome and Giorgio Armani “Si”. They are stunning. Fruity fragrances…. Also love fact that they are oil based which implies the notes last longer on the skin
