I was really looking forward to some fresh, green zest, but alas, was disappointed.Next
Maybe because I hate it a lot so it annoys me more - but it seems it has eternal longevity and enormous sillage.
Nuit Blanche and Opium Intense remain as my fav flankers.
Decent crowd-pleaser type of fragrance, they didn't risk too much with it and stayed true to its DNA and that is why I am a bit disappointed as I wanted it to be the evil step sister and nothing like the original.
I've never bought from this range before but was attracted my the fig. It's much softer than the original BO, so if you're not up for the strong coffee that the original carries, this might be for you! I received a sample of this, and I absolutely love it! A renewed twist for a more joyful, playful look. I was in Sephora today sampling and decided to buy a full size bottle of Libre Intense.Next
Get the Neon instead.
There's a reason it's popular 5 Nanamin's bread from USA This was my first big girl perfume purchase 2 years ago and I've only gone further down the fragrance rabbit hole.Next
Buying a good quality black opium perfume needs a lot of research and patience.
Average in both categories! I was curious because the original BO is somewhere between OK and like for me. I sprayed on my clothes several times NOTHING! Sweet, sexy, deep, gourmand.
It's sweet and spicy and I tend to get more compliments on it than my other perfumes.
I even had a friend comment- that scent is made for you.
Top notes are Pear, Fig Leaf and Green Mandarin; middle notes are Fig, Jasmine and Orange Blossom; base notes are Bourbon Vanilla, Coffee and Patchouli.
Le fil rouge of this perfume are the fig leaves and green notes which are somewhat in the back but definitely there throughout the day. This seems more like a gourmandish fruity floral maybe like ice tea? I like the OG Black Opium and LOVE the Xtreme but the other flankers are not my taste. The opening and top of this is a bit coffee ish , rounded liquorice or something...Next
I guess I was expecting more due to ysl making it.
