When it comes to fragrances, I find it very difficult to find the ones that I really love. There is always something that is missing or that is too much for my taste. I usually go through years without liking any new releases or times when I’d like to purchase 10 fragrances by once.
YSL Black Opium EDP has been on my wish list for a very long time but I was never sure if I really needed another winter fragrance. I can’t explain when I like EDP or EDT more, it’s different with every scent but with this particular one, the perfume choice was the right one for me. And when my boyfriend got it for my birthday, I was pleasantly surprised that he knew which one I’d prefer. Because YSL Black Opium EDP is deeper that the EDT but in a feminine way and without being heavy which makes it a great autumn/winter choice. For example, the original Opium is much stronger and grown-up for me but Black Opium EDP is more spicy and edgy.
It has top notes of Pink Pepper and Orange Blossom, heart notes of Jasmine and Coffee and base notes of Vanilla, Patchouli and Cedar Wood. I love that it’s not only a night time fragrance, it’s wearable and putting it on in the morning, guarantees you that you’re going to smell amazing even in the evening.
The newest member of the Black Opium family is the other fragrance that I can’t get enough of right now. YSL Black Opium Nuit Blanche EDP* is inspired by the annual arts festival in Paris that turns the French capital into a giant arts event for one “sleepless night”. Nuit Blanche is mysterious and unpredictable, sensual and feminine…
The bottle design of the two fragrances is similar with different details added like Nuit Blanche‘s white sequins and rose gold cap, such a beauty!
It has top notes of Silky Smooth Rice and Bourbon Pepper, heart notes of Orange Blossom and Coffee and base notes of Vanilla, Sandalwood and White Musk. This makes YSL Black Opium Nuit Blanche EDP* a bit more deep and woody than YSL Black Opium EDP but still soft, warm and sultry.
YSL Black Opium Nuit Blanche EDP* is already available in Norway and comes in 30 ml/ 520 kr and 50 ml/ 730 kr.
Black Opium EDP and YSL Black Opium Nuit Blanche EDP* are dark…sexy…seductive… The sparkly and glamorous packaging adds the finishing touches to these mesmerising fragrances. And I simply can’t get enough of them right now…
