The weathers getting warmer, we are starting to wear less layers, I’m starting to fantasize about a cold glass of white wine on a warm Summer’s Day, and Facebook is starting to target me with bikini ads. This Spring is a little different for me as 26 September is the day I’m planning to get married and I’m looking for the perfect scent for my big day. These are three newbies on the market, let me know what you think, if you’ve tried any of them.
Black Opium Extreme – The New Sensual Fragrance:
Extremely sensual, feminine and thrilling. It’s a love-at-first-spray, can’t-do-without, dareto-be-different fragrance. A superpower in a glittering glam rock bottle. In 2021, YSL Beauty steps up the game with Black Opium Eau De Parfum Extreme. A radical new intensity, powered by an ultra-black coffee note and boosted by a bold new, ultra-long-lasting overdose of patchouli. Glammed up with an ultra-feminine white floral bouquet. Driving addiction to new heights, creating a true olfactory blackout.
- Extra Black Coffee Accord:A surge of pure energy, like a fresh shot from the espresso machine. The energizing signature accord takes on a darker, tougher attitude boosted by the full-bodied bitterness of black cocoa absolute.
- Deep Patchouli:Adds a velvety woody depth and incredible lasting power to the scent’s signature coffee accord.
- Black Vanilla:Vanilla Bourbon Infusions that unveil deep, mysterious and warm vibrations with delicious balsamic tones.
- White Flowers:Jasmine and orange blossoms add a fresh facet to the fragrance to level up the scent’s luminosity.
- Sparkling Fruit:A sequinned top of juicy pear notes, sweet mandarin, and zesty lemon light up the scent.
YSL Black Opium Eau De Parfum Extreme will be available from 23 August at Truworths, Edgars, Dis-Chem, Woolworths and Foschini.
