YVES SAINT LAURENT | Black Opium vs. Black Opium Nuit Blanche



Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium perfume has been a longtime favorite of mine. In college, it was the fragrance I reached for on special occasions because I loved the way it faded over time into a sweet, feminine fragrance without being too overpowering. The noticeably charming fragrance features notes of coffee accord, orange blossom, cedarwood essence, and patchouli essence; making it an essential for any perfume hoarding, luxury lovin’ woman (haha, but really!). I would describe YSL’s Black Opium as the most luxurious of evening perfumes because it is exciting, feminine, floral, and an attractive choice for women of all ages.

YSL Beauty recently launched another gorgeously packaged fragrance called Black Opium Nuit Blanche. Similar to the original Black Opium, this is a warm feminine scent that I find just a little more subtle and wearable for daytime. It has notes of pink pepper, orange blossom, coffee, and vanilla and wears beautifully for hours on end. I have been wearing it every day this week and have already received SO many compliments on it! People have literally stopped me to ask what perfume I’m wearing. I love that it comes in several sizes – a smaller travel size spray (just $28!) as well as a 1.0 oz and 1.6 oz bottle.

If you’re a feminine scent kind of gal, make sure to sample Black Opium Nuit Blanch on your next trip to Sephora. I received Black Opium Nuit Blanch as well as Black Opium courtesy of Influenster for testing and review purposes, though all photos and opinions included in this post at my own. I have used the original Black Opium perfume for nearly 2 years, so I was absolutely  thrilled to be selected to sample the new Black Opium Nuit Blanch. I hope you also get a chance to try + love these incredibly chic fragrances from the iconic Yves Saint Laurent beauty line.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave your comment below. XO, Jacqueline
