The shift into the cool seasons demands a fragrance that is deeper, bolder and more intense. It just so happens that one of my favourite beauty brands has released a fragrance that does all that. Introducing, YSL Black Opium Intense.
Having tried all the fragrances from the Black Opium collection, I can say this new addition to is the sexiest and seductive scent to date. Staying true to the coffee notes that we all love, entwined with Blue Absinthe, orange blossom, and jasmine, this fragrance has an edge that makes it perfect for the cooler seasons or for a night out on the town.
The blue bottle is completely and utterly fabulous and a photo cannot do it justice. The way the light hits the glass makes this fragrance feel utterly special and it makes me feel special when I am using it. I know, surprising how much power a fragrance can have over someone.
The fragrance is called Intense and I think that has confused some people. This fragrance is not more potent or long-wearing then others in the range, but the notes are deeper, more sensual and a bit more badass than its predecessors. Because of this, I have loved using this for dates night and days when I feel a little more daring. Plus, I know this bottle will be getting a lot of use through the winter months.
If you love the earlier Black Opium fragrances, this one is definitely worth a sniff and is available on NZ counters now. With all fragrances, it’s definitely best to do the sniff test before buying.
