I find this perfume is too sickly street. It is a sickly vanilla scent and many of my friends favourite perfume saying it smells like licorice. Personally I find this horrible it is too sickly sweet. Personally I find this is not worth its expensive price. But this is an unpopular opinion as many people love this rich smell. It is, however, a long-lasting perfume and is well made in that regard. The packaging is really nice with a classy look.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Review
Where to buy?
YSL Black Opium the feminine fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent – new glam rock fragrance full of mystery and energy. An addictive gourmand floral with notes of Black Coffee – for a shot of adrenaline; White Florals – to instantly seduce; and Vanilla – for sweetness and sensuality.
Amazing smell. Has all the boys and ladies turning their heads. Divine undertones. Nice and sweet. This is definetly a night time suited scent compared to the floral version of this
Tips: A nice sweet strawberry moisturiser underneath makes it stay longer and smells devine
By far the best selling perfume ever, as soon as I run out of mine I use my mums! It is well worth the price and the smell lasts so long. This perfume also smells good on everyone sometimes perfumes smell different or yuck on people. This one smells good on everyone and is well worth buying.
This fragrance is amazing it wears all day long and has a warm oriental sensual smell. My favourite go to fragrance for those special occasions and also a great all day work fragrance.
I love this fragrance it has notes of Black Coffee and is very feminine great for those special nites out not overpowering I think its exotic
Tips: Keep it in the Dark or a draw so it does not evaporate
I love the packaging! It is simple, yet gorgeous with its black sparkles.
Every time I wear this perfume I get compliments from complete strangers saying I smell good or asking what perfume I’m wearing.
I find the smell long lasting and not overpowering. I like how the scent isn’t sweet or too ‘young’.
Definitely one I’ll keep buying.... shame about the price though!
Totally in love with this perfume. The coffee and vanilla notes are a match made in heaven. It’s lasts a good 8 plus hrs and 2 sprays are more than enough, so you’ll get pretty good use from your 50ml bottle. Highly recommend.
This is the most delicious scent I've ever worn. I'm obsessed. It's a classic perfume revamped for a younger audience and damn they did a good job. Even though it's pretty expensive, it's my main scent. I'd like to go through life leaving people with the impression that I actually smell like this. It's super lush. I can't praise Black Opium highly enough. Everyone should get a bottle, even just for special occasions.
So i smells this in canada for the first time and fell inlove with the smell.. It smells musky and a bit of sweetness. Its smells like luxury in a bottel.
The smell stays for days and days. Its a really good cent
I got this on sale at a chemist after listing after it for a long time. I really liked the unique, sweet, licorice type scent. It lingers most of the day - up to 6-8 hours. This fragrance is a great way to mix up your normal scent with something a bit more powerful
Tips: Don’t overdo it with the spritzing. 2 to 3 sprays is enough otherwise it can be really overpowering.
