My Experience with Yves Saint Laurent black Opium Eau De Parfum:

Black Opium is not even remotely related lớn Opium, except for the brand and the name tag. Whether you’re an Opium hater or lover, this is a beautiful fragrance for you. I am a self-confessed OPIUM addict; so I just had to lớn try this one out as well.


As much as I like the perfume, I hate the way YSL has named it. They have totally encashed on Opium’s popularity to create a mass appeal. I feel they could have named it something else, and it would not have raised as many eyebrows. Creating an entirely different fragrance & then, making it sound darker, sexier and more dangerous than Opium; that is so not done YSL.


Ok, enough of harping on the name! Now, let’s talk about the fragrance. đen Opium is so not black. It is not dark or dangerous. In fact, it is a very comfortable fragrance to wear; with a sweet chocolate-y vanilla-ish flavour with a hint of coffee và spice to lớn it. Just what we want and get at our local cafe.

It is definitely for the winters; or the colder climates. It has a heavy dose of coffee và vanilla in it. And, both of them are my absolute favourites. The vị trí cao nhất notes vì last for a couple of hours; after which the coffee disappears và vanilla takes over. Other accords are those of pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, patchouli and cedar. These notes are comparatively weaker, but they vì chưng help in adding a bit of a twist, that hint of spice khổng lồ an otherwise plain vanilla. I love that it not only smells comfortable but also luxurious.

The perfume comes in a đen colored textured bottle sprinkled with silver shimmer; very similar khổng lồ the Opium bottle, only with a change of color. One to two sprays on the pulse points are good enough for 4 khổng lồ 6 hours.On clothes, it lasts much longer, in fact, for days.


In conclusion, this perfume will not make you immediately stand up & take lưu ý of it. It is not a landmark-creating perfume. It is not even an important perfume. It is in fact; an average perfume. Does that mean it is bad? No, absolutely not.

This perfume is at the đứng top of the game. But, it still grows on you so much so that you ultimately fall in love with it. You may want to lớn use this everyday; and that is perfectly fine, especially in these colder months. People may come to associate this fragrance with you and not in a bad way at all.

In fact, when Opium is associated with mature women on one hand, đen Opium is for all, on the other. Opium haters are definitely going to lượt thích this; and so are the Opium lovers. Sillage is moderate, but I actually lượt thích this intimate sort of perfume. You may apply it, sniff it, & then forget about it; but this one will never leave your side; never leave you alone. It will always be in the background, working its magic.


Pros of Yves Saint Laurent đen Opium Eau De Parfum:
