Black Opium By Yves Saint Laurent 50ml Review

Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is a perfume that will surprise you with its new scent. You might choose to switch how you use it due to its musk.

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty made a name for itself with the original Black Opium perfume. So it is only fitting that a rework of that perfume would be highly anticipated seeing as YSL is well known for its iconic, memorable creations.

 

The new Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent has even been awarded the Best of Beauty award by Allure. And yet, this new fragrance, a reformulation of the original scent, has brought with it mixed reactions particularly from users who loved the first version of Black Opium.

 

Black Opium is composed of a mixture of coffee, vanilla and floral scents, made so to bring out a more modern, youthful and feminine scent. This “new” formulation is meant to appeal to the new age philosophy of fitting in and not offending anyone with strong, unique scents. I say new in speech marks because this formulation is not an original. It has become a standard in the perfume-making world.

 

However, in an effort to add to the glamour associated with a brand like YSL, the production team made an effort with the overall appearance and packaging of the perfume. It comes packaged in a dark bottle of black glitter with a touch of pink. YSL says this is to bring out a feminine yet grunge feel to the perfume.

 

The fragrance opens with a rich coffee smell which serves to boost your adrenaline. What follows is a sweeter vanilla scent which then fades into a soft floral scent. Although not bad in itself, the new YSL Black Opal lacks originality and imitates many of the perfumes that are now common in the market.

If you are looking for an everyday perfume that is not too steep on the pocket, this perfume will be just that. However, for those special occasions, something less mediocre that would make you stand out from the crowd would be more preferable.

 

For a perfume touted as being addictive, floral and energetic, the new Black Opium by YSL in a 50ml bottle could have been better had the perfumers stuck to the original formula and maybe changed a few things to make it better than its predecessor. Nevertheless, it’s a lighter fragrance that is great for users who do not like heavier scents.

 

All in all, for a sweet, light perfume, that conforms rather than challenges the boundaries, YSL has hit the nail on the head. Fairly priced, the perfume is pleasant but not in a life changing kind of way. This perfume is available for sale online. The 50ml bottles retails for under £60 on most sites. Many of the online stores offer delivery services within a couple of days, while others have the possibility of next day delivery.

  • The Good :
    A sweet, light fragrance, Pocket-friendly price, Delivery available to a number of countries
  • The Bad :
    A seemingly generic formulation, Doesn’t stand out as a Yves Saint Laurent formulation. It is not unique
Our score:
4.5 / 5
