YSL Black Opium - Perfume Favourite

Why do I have to have such expensive perfume taste on a student budget :( 
Also I have to say I am rubbish at describing smells

This is hands down one of my favourite perfumes I've had so far. I absolutely love everything about it from the packaging to obviously the smell. 

Discover Black Opium, the feminine fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent – new glam rock fragrance full of mystery and energy. An addictive gourmand floral with notes of: Black Coffee – for a shot of adrenaline; White Florals – to instantly seduce; and Vanilla – for sweetness and sensuality. WHAT’S STOPPING YOU?

I 100% agree with this statement I feel it is a very sweet and sensual fragrance, this is exactly what I look for. I especially love the black coffee note I think it gives it something special. 
Unlike cheaper perfumes this lasts all day when it's on you which is again something I love because I already have to carry loads of stuff in my bag, a perfume is not another thing that I want to throw in. 

As with all fragrances I would recommend you go and smell it for yourself before buying because I may love it but everyones sense of smell is not the same.
