Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium


I was super excited when I saw that I had received the YSL VoxBox from Influenster because for one it is a Yves Saint Laurent products and two I was actually told I did not qualify when I took the survey.

If you are not familiar with Influenster, is is a site where you can review a lot of things from food to makeup.  You can also ask questions about products and other members will answer.  Every once in a while they send you samples of products for free to try out and give an honest opinion.  If you are interested you can go here.

Okay so back to the product! I received the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium and here my are thoughts on it!

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium

So the first thing that caught my eye was the cute box that the perfume came in.  It is black and baby pink and YSL in black glitter. I love it!!

The actual bottle is super cute as well.  It is unique bottle but it is also not super crazy.

The scent is said to coffee bean notes, white flower notes, and vanilla beans.  I cannot really identify the smell of coffee in this which to me is great because that would probably be too powerful.  It also has the flower smell which I love in any perfume.  I actually tried it on before reading the description and I kept wondering why it was so “warm” smelling but when I saw that it had vanilla notes it all made sense.

Overall it is a great scent especially now for the winter and fall seasons.  It retails at $90 for a 1.6 oz bottle which I don’t think is bad given that most high end perfumes are at that same price range.

Although it is a great scent and I will be using it through the fall and winter seasons, I don’t think I will be buying the full size bottle only because I am a huge fan of the Miss Dior perfume.

I hope you enjoyed this review! 🙂

  1. I almost bought this yesterday and am still planning on getting it. It seems like the perfect Fall scent for me. I can’t stand the smell of coffee so I was baffled to here it had it in the formula!
