What’s better than receiving your favourite perfume in a handbag friendly size? Receiving an ENGRAVED version of your favourite perfume in a handbag friendly size, obviously. This has made me ridiculously happy. I absolutely adore The Perfume Shop and YSL Black Opium so having an engraved bottle is the cutest and it hasn’t left my bag! The Perfume Shop Rewards Club are celebrating their 5th birthday and so they sent along this lovely little parcel with some prosecco, a themed delicious biscuit and my favourite perfume so I could join in with the celebration.
YSL Black Opium has been my favourite perfume for well over a year now, maybe two! I’m a creature of habit when it comes to perfumes, I still rebuy perfumes that I liked 5+ years ago! I don’t wear the same one constantly but I mix between 2-3. I like scents that smell good together so I don’t have to worry if I’m in a rush or forgot what I put on first. It’s rather handy but it also means I’m easy to buy for as I always need a restock and this time I’ll want everything engraved!
If you haven’t tried Black Opium yet then it’s a super sophisticated smell with notes of coffee, vanilla and orange blossom. To me it’s a very powerful smell, not as in strength but in how it makes you feel. Boss lady smell. It’s not being made into a billion and one different versions so do be careful when you buy it as there’s an eau de toilette version, Black Opium Nuit Blanche, and now Wild. I accidentally bought the wrong one in Spain but there’s not much difference, they’re just a bit lighter and not as sexy, in my opinion.
