YSL Black Opium is my favourite perfume in my collection. It’s sweet and floral, and I wear it everywhere. Everyone knows it’s ‘my’ smell, and the fact that it’s long-lasting is an added bonus. I discovered I loved this perfume when a friend bought it for me for my birthday…
The new limited-edition Pure Illusion bottle is sophisticated and edgy at the same time. It’s a real statement piece, one I’d be proud to show my friends and have on my dressing table. It’s kept the theme and personality of Black Opium with the frosted glitter, but this bottle adds more depth and dynamic. If you’re a YSL Black Opium fan, you really need this limited-edition bottle in your life – I’m so happy to have found it.
It’s hard to find a perfume I’m instantly drawn to, but this limited-edition makes me super-happy because it’s the same juice as the original Black Opium. Was it made for me? I think so. At first you can smell the black coffee, which energises me and wakes me up from the first spritz, which I need as a new mum! Then the sweet tones of orange blossom and jasmine emerge, which I just love and always look for in a new perfume.
YSL Black Opium Pure Illusion is 100% worth the price tag (it’s £71 for 50ml – a great price for a limited edition). It’s only £10 more than the original Black Opium, and considering it’s a tad more special, it’s a bargain!
