BLACK OPIUM // Unpopular opinion time! I really (and I mean *really*) dislike the original fragrance. Full disclosure: I don't care for sweet scents to begin with, so I'm totally biased, but this one was way too saccharine and cloying. It has notes of black coffee, vanilla, and white flowers, but none of that really came through. It just hit me like a ton of sickly sweet bricks and left me with a deep headache. I don't really get why this is marketed as a 'chic, sexy lady' scent, because to me it smells like spoiled teenager. Like something Regina George would have worn at 14. HARD PASS.
BLACK OPIUM NUIT BLANCHE // This update on the original scent is a major improvement. It's still quite sweet and something I would never pick out for myself (I'm an earth and musk kinda girl), but the switch to white coffee and addition of orange blossom in the major notes makes this one lighter, fresher and infinitely more wearable. I can actually see myself wearing a light spritz of this in the wintertime.
No offense meant to all the Black Opium fans out there! Scent is such a subjective subject, and I also happen to be super sensitive and particular about it. Sweets are generally a no-go for me, but if that's you're thing, definitely check out this new NUIT BLANCHE release!
Thanks to @influenster for sending me these complimentary for testing!

There are two different scents that YSL recently put out, and I'll admit - the difference is VERY subtle. As in, I can't really tell a difference...but I love both of them! It has great staying power and smells very sexy and alluring, so it may be best for evening as it could be a BIT much for daytime depending on your preferences.
Overall, I LOVE this fragrance and am ecstatic that Influenster sent these to me. I will absolutely be wearing these in the future! BLACK OPIUM LADIES by YVESSAINT LAURENT - EDP SPRAY 1.7 OZ
