YSL Black Opium Collector Edition
This perfume is just the pick-me-up treat I needed over the weekend. Recovering from a stupid cold, the only thing that got me out of my fluffy dressing gown and into some ‘proper’ clothes was the short walk to collect my mail.
I received a bunch of exciting post of which you will see on the blog in the coming weeks. I try not to play favourites with all the lovely things that gets delivered to me, but I got pretty excited to see a surprise black parcel with the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty
logo on it.
Well, as you can see from the title and photos, inside the parcel was a beautiful bottle of Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium
Eau de Parfum* – the Collector Edition.
YSL’s Black Opium Collector Edition has extra sparkles added for the festive season.
The updated design which is available exclusively at Boots nationwide has a good sprinkle of gold and silver glitter on the upper half of the bottle and carton.
As my sense of smell has started to return, I can smell this perfume properly!
The fragrance is sexy with edge and sass and the highest dose of coffee bean accord in a feminine fragrance ever. This is softened by jasmine, orange blossom absolute, cedar, patchouli, and vanilla – giving the scent an overall light and floral aroma.
My favourite thing about it is the coffee aroma. It is the first fragrance note I notice and is very unique to Black Opium. It is unlike any other perfume in my collection.
If you’re looking to treat yourself, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Collector Edition Eau de Parfum (£47.00) is available exclusively at Boots nationwide, online, or from YSL website
