Wow. This fragrance is absolutely breath taking. This is a signature scent for sure. The amount of compliments I've gotten from this is absurd. I purchased the 1.6 Oz from ulta because they did not have the 3.0oz available. I suspect this will continue to be very popular considering the amount of compliments I have received. This scent is warm, spicy and cozy. The vanilla is adult and womanly. Not juvenile and immature. Very sexy! Love. Will continue to purchase.
first off, the bottle is very nice & sleek with the black vinyl. i think it was a nice touch to "dress up" the bottle. now on to the fragrance..on my skin, le parfum opens with a powerful coffee accord, followed by white florals and settles with vanilla. i also somewhat smell the original black opium dna in the opening. once the fragrance fully dries down i get heavy vanilla, as there are many in the base with a hint of coffee. overall, it's an ok fragrance on me. i'm not a huge fan of vanilla (been easing into them the last few years) so that could be why i feel like this is not an impressive flanker. i do however, think this would be great to layer with other vanilla scents or something warm/spicy to bring out sweeter elements. i don't think it's bad at all. it's just not for me. as far as longevity, it's moderate on me. i would say i could detect the fragrance for about 2-3 hours. the projection is not bad either. i wore this out and could smell my own scent trail after a few hours of errands which was nice. i think this is great to wear in the cooler months vs warmer weather. overall, if you enjoy the original black opium but wished it was sweeter or had more vanilla this may be for you. i also think someone who loves vanilla would enjoy the fragrance as well.

I love this new formula/scent! I used to wear the original in high school but didn't really feel it fit me the same anymore! But this new scent is amazing and sophisticated and perfect!

This is the absolute best perfume in the entire world. It is just the right amount of creaminess, richness, opulence, and sweetness. I highly recommend everyone trying this asap.

This smells sooo good. I think it's a touch overwhelming at first, but it definitely stays for a longggg time. Example: sprayed it on my jacket and could still smell it a week later.

I wore this perfume to the fair. I bought the travel spray as a blind buy. I had sprayed a couple of sprays on me right after we got inside of the fair grounds. Spent 6 hours there. Literally at the last hour, i got onto a ride and the operater of the ride, stopped the ride to come up to me and ask me what perfume i was wearing because it smelled so good! She even asked to take a picture of my travel spray! Best way i can describe it is a sophisticated sweet smell. Not too sweet but just right. Im in love!

Newport Beach, California 🌞 from Dana 😻
This fragrance is magical. It's sensual, sexy, spicy, and UNIQUE. Unlike anything I own in my perfume wardrobe. All of those wrapped in a beautiful black bottle. I tried a tester out and wore it throughout the day and the next day I still could smell the beautiful overlay of spicy vanilla and coffee on my clothes and wrist. It LASTS!!! That is when I knew I had to have this. It is definitely a winter fragrance, in my opinion. I 🖤 it. 🙌🏻🏆🔥

Joc the reviewer from California Houston
while opinions on fragrance are subjective, some critics find the Black Opium perfume to be divisive due to its bold and intense aroma. The opening notes can be overwhelming for those sensitive to strong scents, as the initial burst combines sweet and spicy elements in a way that might feel overpowering. The juxtaposition of these elements can create a polarizing experience, eliciting either strong admiration or strong aversion.
Furthermore, the heart notes of the Black Opium perfume may intensify the divisive nature of its scent. The floral and oriental accords, while enticing to some, can be perceived as overly robust and heady by others. This characteristic makes the fragrance stand out but might not align with everyone's preferences, especially for those who prefer more subtle and understated scents.
As the perfume settles into its base notes, the lingering tones can be described as rich and deep. However, for those who find the initial notes overpowering, this lingering intensity may contribute to an overall negative perception. The long-lasting nature of the fragrance ensures that its impact endures, which can be a double-edged sword depending on individual taste.
In conclusion, the Black Opium perfume, while adored by many for its bold and distinctive character, may not appeal to those who prefer more delicate and nuanced scents. The fragrance's strength and complexity could be perceived as overpowering, making it an acquired taste rather than a universally appreciated choice. It serves as a reminder that fragrance preferences are highly personal, and what one person finds appealing, another might find disagreeable.

YSLVanillaGirl from Tampa, FL
I LOVE this fragrance! This is THEE best smelling Black Opium Flanker that I've smelled out of the releases. I think it's a nice take on adding the trifecta of vanillas! I'm a Vanilla Girl, so this fragrance is right up my alley. I hope YSL keeps this on the line for years to come! It's literally gonna be my go to signature scent!

This sent is so addicting.
It's rich, deep and smell like vanilla, but in a good way.
It last a long time on me, I've got so many compliment when I wearing it.
Johana from Houston
Beautiful deep coffee scent notes but not too intense or overwhelming. For me it's more of a night time or date scent.
