Let me start by saying that I am not one to buy a lot of different perfumes. I own about 6 total but have steadily used Versace Red Jeans and Vera Wang Princess for the last 8 years. I never thought I would add a third fragrance to my main lineup until I smelled Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium! WOW!!!! It is as intoxicating as a perfume can get. The scent is unique and bold, yet warm and sweet. It has vanilla, floral and coffee notes with some musky undertones. (not overpowering musk though) I think of it as the perfect blend of spicy and sweet and will be wearing it throughout Fall & Winter.
Side note: Black opium is an Eau de parfum so a little goes a long way.
Black Opium comes in 4 sizes ranging in price from $25-$115.
How gorgeous is that bottle? Also available in a blinged out version ($300) if you’re feeling really fancy.
