The smell lasts and lingers unlike the other scents which are required to be applied in every few hours this is long lasting and hence you do not need to visit the wash rooms too frequently to use the perfume. The smell is a bit like fruity and a light musky fragrance that lasts for several hours. I call it holy because its almost mesmerizing how deep the scent us. Its woody and musky. I feel a bit of sativa in it and citrus also musk at the same time Its very rich in fragrance. The packing is ok and simple but what's inside will surprise you. It's a must buy.

The richness of these fragrances mixes beautifully with citrussy, lavender, leathery or fruity notes. It's rather exotic unlike the other scents which are required to be applied in every few hours this is long lasting and hence you do not need to visit the wash rooms too frequently to use the perfume. The smell is a bit like fruity and a light musky fragrance that lasts for several hours. Its sweet. Overpoweringly. If I wanted to compare it to a indian sweet I wud probably say rasgulla. With thick sugar syrup and a lot of saffron. But tasty It makes me feel beautiful and classy.

The Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum is gift from my friend and I can assure one can easily fall in love with the smell once sprayed. The design of the bottle aesthetic and comes in different colors based on the fragrance. I have got the floral fragrance. The perfume is EDP and yes it can long last. The staying power is almost four hours. Sometimes I still could feel the presence even after I wash my clothes. I feel the perfume is little expensive side though. But the fragrance is fresh and mild citric undertone as well.

Addictive floral-coffee scent


When I bought this I thought it to be a better version of the old perfume that I loved. For those who like strong fragrances and can stand them, it may be a very nice buy. For me it was just too sweet and overwhelming. Also since I am sensitive to strong smells and anything too overpowering triggers my asthama this was not a great choice for me. The sweet pear and vanilla aroma with hint of chocolate and spice is nice, but too much to take for me. For colder countries and for winter it could be really nice for those who prefer strong fragrances, the fragrance of coffee and vanilla can make you feel warmer, cant they? The top notes last quite long, longer than many perfumes that I have tried. Other patchouli, cedar notes are slightly weaker and don’t last that long, but they do make it a nice long lasting perfume. I use milder perfumes, perhaps that’s why this one wasn’t for me, however for others this may be a great choice, with heads turning wherever they went. The perfume comes in a black colored textured bottle with silver shimmer; very similar to the Opium bottle, only with a change of color. Just two sprays can last for good 6 hours and much longer if you put on clothes. I actually loved the original Opium scent, it was milder, this one is too sweet and strong for my preference. This one is like forever on you, which may good for some and not good for others. This one is like too much of sweetness. Also this is an expensive buy, way too expensive. The key ingredients of the YSL Black Opium perfume are coffee beans, orange blossom, cedar jasmine, vanilla and patchouli. Top notes: Green tangerine, pear Middle notes: Jasmine tea petal, orange flower petal Base notes: Green coffee, white woody

I was a fan of the original Opium perfume. It smelled so good. So obviously when they came out with this one, I had to try it. But this one isn’t great. It’s too sweet smelling. It’s like a high sugar overdose. The coffee hints are barely there. It’s suitable for teenage girls. Never buying it again. Plus, it’s way too expensive.

I love perfumes, but I am very selective about them. I don't go on purchasing them very frequently. But when I decide to purchase perfume, then I go for the best. I found the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum while searching online. I was not sure if it has the very best fragrance or not. Two most important features of perfumes I look for are the fragrance and if it is long lasting or not. I went through some positive reviews and decided to order the same. I don't prefer and go for milder fragrances. And Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum is just perfect to my expectations from a humble perfume. It is long lasting, has that mild sweet floral-coffee-vanilla scent. It can be best explained as sweet floral coffee mix. At first, I ordered the small bottle because I am used to carrying the perfumes in my cosmetics pouch so I need something compact in size. So this small perfume bottle was just the ideal one. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum is a bit expensive, but trust me it is a long-lasting affair. Once you start using this floral-coffee-vanilla scented perfume, you will fall in love with its fragrance and may get addicted too. I use it sparingly because I wish it never gets over. This precious fragrance is something that has made me its fan already and has become my signature perfume these days. It comes in six packages, one is the big black shimmery bottle and also has two travel-friendly packages. The engraved bottle is an ideal gift to give it to your best friend too. After all fragrances make the best bonding. Conclusion - A long-lasting expensive affair that everyone craves for. Precious floral-coffee-vanilla scented the fragrance and will become the most favorite fragrance of your perfume collection.

When I was youthful, my first aroma was YSL's 'Babydoll'. Regardless of whether I wore it or not any individual who knew me or met me, even never having been near while I was wearing it, swore it was some kind of altered aroma with "quintessence of me" inside the sweet delicate fragrance. As I developed more seasoned it ended upended and I gradually floated towards aroma takes note of that were not so much sweet but rather more customary. Anyway, when I previously got a whiff of this when it was first discharged in a Retail chain it brought back each one of those recollections of 'Babydoll' however with the more profound patchouli, woodsy, traditional floral aroma notes I have held onto as a grown-up. In any case, this is far beyond that, it feels like me when I showed it, it works so well with my body science it waits delicately for a considerable length of time, it is the arousing take on a work of art (Opium) that is simply so excellent that it is addictive. In this manner the refreshed adaptation is apropos named as Dark Opium, (snappy medication science information: came down to a dark sticky substance, dark tar opium, as opposed to simply warming the "milk of the poppy" in the event that you will to the customary profound brilliant shading), is more addictive than its forerunner. Be that as it may, the best piece of this scent is that I receive writings and so forth from individuals I haven't found in months who have found this new fragrance and state "I swear they packaged a piece of you in this aroma I found. You essentially should attempt YSL's Dark Opium. It was plainly made for you.” The recommendations follow your way for this product.

Black Opium is not even remotely related to 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 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 and 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.Black 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 and spice to 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 and vanilla in it. And, both of them are my absolute favourites. The top notes do last for a couple of hours; after which the coffee disappears and vanilla takes over. Other accords are those of pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, patchouli and cedar.These notes are comparatively weaker, but they do help in adding a bit of a twist, that hint of spice to an otherwise plain vanilla. I love that it not only smells comfortable but also luxurious. The perfume comes in a black colored textured bottle sprinkled with silver shimmer; very similar to the Opium bottle, only with a change of color. One to two sprays on the pulse points are good enough for 4 to 6 hours.On clothes, it lasts much longer, in fact, for days.

I prefer the original Opium scent. This one is too sweet for my liking. It stays on my clothes forever, which would be a good thing if it weren’t so sweet and strong. Not my kind of scent.

Nice woodsy coffee fragrance for cold winter nights!
4/5

PROS


This scent is great but you have to be sure not to overuse it. It’s brilliant when used mildly. At first, you get a citrus-y smell with hints of sugar. Then the wild jasmine hits you and then you get a woodsy coffee fragrance. While most people prefer to wear it during summers, I think the coffee fragrance makes it perfect for cold winter nights.

I love coffee so this one works for me. The floral and coffee mix somehow works, even though it sounds like a weird combination. I sprayed it on my jacket a few weeks back and it still smells great. It does have a tangerine-y hint to it. It smells fresh. Once I ordered it online and half of the perfume had leaked out. So never ordering it online again.

I dislike this smell of this new scent from YSL. Their previous scent was much better. The smell is so overpowering and sweet, like way too much. I like their bottle designs and that they have travel sizes, but they need to have a mild scent.

This scent is the perfect summer scent. It is so good! Whoever thought that coffee and jasmine would go so well together? Terrific! They also have these awesome limited edition bottles with the same scent and you can engrave them. It would make such a lovely gift.

PROS


The scent was a huge no-no for me. I love the design of the bottle and that it has travel sizes. That’s all great. But when I ordered the bottle online it was broken and had leaked. Added to that, it’s so costly and it was all for nothing. Then the smell is so overpowering, it can hurt the eyes sometimes. It gave me a headache. The smell didn’t even last long which, in hindsight, is a good thing. All in all, YSL needs to do better than this. Maybe something closer to the original Opium scent.
