Shannon’s Pick – Belle D’Opium by Yves Saint Laurent
I am dying to own this perfume right now! I received a sample in my last Sephora order, and it may be my new fave fragrance. It is described as :
“A true olfactory manifesto, this mysterious and luminous floral-oriental fragrance is built around an accord of nargileh, a sensual and vaporous scent inspired by oriental water pipes.”
Yes indeed it is an “olfactory manifesto” I have a difficult time finding a perfume that I like. Many give me terrible headaches at the first whiff. It is a delicate but rich scent. According to Sephora, it has notes of Peach, White Pepper, Casablanca Lily, Jasmine Absolute, Incense, Resins, Sandalwood. And its’ style is Attractive. Bewitching. Addictive. I highly recommend you check it out!
