YSL Black Opium Review

Black Opium is one of those fragrances that I fell in love with instantly after first coming across it. About a year ago, I received two mini samples of Black Opium in the Boots Beauty Advent Calendar,  I then was very lucky to receive a full size bottle for Christmas!

This fragrance is described as 'feminine glam rock', it's a floral scent with black coffee and vanilla. The scent is designed to give adrenaline, seduce and be sweet and sensual. I have to admit, I would agree with that description. It's definitely a fragrance which turns heads and receives many compliments when I wear it. 

It's a fragrance which gives me a little bit of a 'pep in my step' and a sassy/sexy confidence, it's a real feel good scent in my opinion and it's not hard to see why people are so quick to give compliments when they smell it.

In terms of lasting power - because I know some fragrances wear off after a few hours - I still can smell this on me the day after using it. I think that's amazing that it can last that long, and actually I don't have to spray too much of it on me to have that effect.

I also want to talk about the packaging too, I love the sparkly/glittery outer coating which just gives it that edge without looking tacky. It looks like it's made to stand out amongst other bottles, and I believe it does. 

It's such a unique fragrance and is definitely recognisable. I know that now I'm hooked on it, I will always want to re-purchase it! It is slightly pricey, however it's almost certainly worth it.

Seeing as it's close to Christmas, there may well be someone close to you who you may consider purchasing this for?
