The most consumed beverage in the world had to have a day to be celebrated and that day is 1st of October.
The fragrance world could not stay indifferent to the seductive aroma of coffee.
To celebrate this day, in my own way, I have decided to wear a fragrance that has coffee in the middle notes. So I chose Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, a sweet, gourmand, intense fragrance, very sexy and seductive.
The aroma makes me think of a Parisian pastry shop, in the morning, with a hot cup of intense dark coffee and a croissant aside.
The fragrance smells to me like a coffee with nutmeg, chocolate and vanilla topping. It is sweet, gourmand and you can almost fell the taste of hot coffee on the tip of the tongue.
It opens up with pink pepper, orange blossom and pear, giving that gourmand aromatic scent, quickly followed by coffee, jasmin, bitter almond and licorice, for that sweet spicy coffee I war talking about earlier, all layered down on a vanilla, patchouli, cedar and cashmere wood perfect mix.
The sillage of this fragrance is very good and the fragrance is quite long lasting. Being so sweet and gourmand might make it a bit difficult to wear for some, but it is definitely worth a chance.
