Happy Tuesday, I hope you’ve been enjoying a gorgeous Bank Holiday weekend, so, in something of a celebration, I thought I would share a rather lovely perfume which I’ve been saving for rather special evenings – YSL’s Opium Nuit Blanch Eau de Parfum.
I’d never tried a fragrance from the brand before, so when the glittering bottle arrived, you can imagine how excited I was! A ‘rock’n’roll’ take on the original Opium fragrance (I think we all remember those Sophie Dahl adverts!), Nuit Blanche mixes notes like Bourbon, Vanilla and Orange Blossom to create a perfume which feels darkly sophisticated.
I’ve been saving the perfume for evenings out, and I can’t tell you how many people have commented on how the love the fragrance! At first, the top notes of vanilla and coffee bean give the perfume an almost gourmand tone. Then, as the perfume heats up, the heart notes of white musk and orange blossom give the parfum super sexy feel. It’s definitely not a scent for the faint hearted, so I love keeping it for special evenings out – it just feels right to wear it after dark!
