As the days get chiller, the nights get darker and the knitwear gets heavier, it is only natural that we start to gravitate towards those richer, deeper fragrances. I, for one, love my summer-fresh, zesty, fruity scents but as Autumn draws in, I start to switch up my daily spritz and opt for a more opulent mix of perfumes.
2014 saw the launch of one of Yves Saint Laurent’s most hotly anticipated fragrances – Black Opium Eau de Parfum. It was the shot of that intoxicating coffee note that really set it apart and made it the perfect Winter scent. I gushed all about the original EDP on my blog nearly two years ago. Now YSL have released a limited Wild Edition of this perfume – same electrifying scent but housed within a highly collectable bottle.
The bottle is gorgeous and will definitely add a splash of mystery and sparkle to your dressing table. The glitter-effect faux fur coat wraps itself around the bottle, and is finished with a rose gold border to add a edgy look to the scent. Inside you will find the same mix of bitter coffee, radiant white flowers, soft vanilla and woody cedar which makes Black Opium such an appealing fragrance. It is round and deep and guaranteed to warm you up on those wintery days.
