Reviews of Black Opium Eau de Parfum

Black Opium has a strong heart, what coffee can do for a cheap scent. Black opium has heady everything, forming the illusion of an intoxicating scent, but really-just resting on its laurels. A bit. Nonetheless, its top notes are fun and fully sensual, almost naturally grounded by the warmth of vanilla, patchouli and cedar wood. The result interplay is the beginning of a night on the town. Nice enough of a story for Black Opium's composition.

I was so disappointed with this perfume. I was so exited to try it and them when I did I couldn't believe just how weak it was I was expecting an explosion of sexy scents and instead I got absolutely nothing
I could barely smell it on my skin......the best thing about this perfume is the advert on television....how misleading that advert is. Nothing sexy about this perfume what so ever. Never mind

Fell in love at first sniff. Distinctive coffee and vanilla smell that I usually fall for. Not too sweet or overpowering and it lingers nicely.

I have to give this a neutral because I expected more from YSL. I won't give a comparison to original Opium; there is none. It is as though YSL wanted to jump in, on the "Sweet Style scent" bandwagon.

The first hour of wearing I get vanilla, pear, jasmine, and orange blossom. Too much vanilla for me. After awhile I detect bitter almond and licorice which makes it easier to live with. Then finally when this has settled on my skin I get nice cedar and cashmere wood.

In summation, it comes off as a cheap-girl scent for a couple of hours. Then it begins to show more promise as a scent, recognizable as an offering by the house of YSL.

This warm, woody vanilla reminds me of a cross between CK Reveal and EL's Modern Muse Rouge. It's nice, but it's not Opium, black or otherwise. Starts off strong, and rather promising with pepper off-setting the sweetness of the vanilla. Too soon, however the drydown becomes a familiar musky sweetness that, despite the promise of coffee, is rather bland.

The notes in this are mostly synthetic it seems, but still.. it had good lasting power and sillage. The notes are coffee, white flowers and vanilla. Drydown is wonderful; slightly woody although I don't sense any patchouli (mentioned by a previous reviewer), but this is NICE ....real nice. All you need is about 2 drops
