If you’re a foodie, then listen up. Gourmand fragrances are ones with edible ingredients in but, of course, they’re for smelling only (even if they do make your mouth water). And this season, more powerful, bold gourmands are taking over – they’ll last on your skin for hours on end and get ALL the compliments flooding in. Say hello to the trending scent of the moment, YSL Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense for her...
YSL BLACK OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM INTENSE FOR HER
YSL has once again graced us with a standout new perfume – and this time it’s called Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense. The new blue-tinted sparkly bottle is the scent of every gourmand fragrance fan’s dreams. And, brace yourselves, it’s more intense and sensual than ever before, thanks to the mix of iconic black coffee, blue absinthe liquor, licorice and vanilla. But don’t panic, the original hints of orange blossom and sandalwood create a warm, exotic smell, so it’s not too overpowering for the daytime. Whether you’re a Black Opium superfan or first-timer, make sure you try this. It could just be your new signature scent…
