YSL Black Opium £50.50 – £91

I have heard a lot of good things about YSL Black Opium prior to trying it out for myself. So I expected it to be amazing, and it did not disappoint. This perfume was more than amazing.

Discover Black Opium, the new 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.

The Gift of a Scent

The gift of a scent is one of the best gifts you can give a perfume lover like me because you are not only giving me a perfect present I would love, you are also gifting me a memory. And since it is the season of giving, I have been thinking of various fragrances and perfumes and which scents I would love to give and receive this Christmas. Choosing the right scent for a loved one can be very tricky, you have to get it right which means you have to know what scents the person would like. It can’t be too strong or too mild, it can be a weak or an overpowering fragrance, it has to be just perfect. Which is why I won’t recommend you buy a perfume as a Christmas gift except you know the recipient of the gift inside out.

Here are a few perfume ideas you may find useful –

 

Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Eau De Parfum Spray

Daria Werbowy Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2016

Bazaar_028_1

Daria Werbowy is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2016 issue, looking good. This is a gorgeous shot. I think the cover girl looks very beautiful with her flawless natural makeup and hair. I must confess, I didn’t know who Daria Werbowy was, so a quick Google search gave me the answers I needed. She is a 32-year-old Ukrainian Canadian model, born in Krakow, Poland, and later emigrated to Toronto, Canada with her family at the age of 3.

Daria Werbowy is best known as a spokesperson for the French beauty brand – Lancôme. However, she has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry like; Prada, Gucci, Hermes, Valentino, and YSL, to name a few.

I think this cover is great, the shot catches my eye, and I am sure it will stand out on the newsstands, but the articles featured in this issue are not listed on the cover, and that is a massive issue for me. I like to see the hottest features on the cover to be sure I will be having a good read, and this cover doesn’t reveal much.

However, according to the editor’s letter, Dana will be opening up in her interview, and telling us how she has broken free of the confines of a conventional modelling career, stepping away from the relentless schedule of catwalk shows, and discovering the freedom to do what she most enjoys (sailing, surfing and photography).

The letter also states that there will be some creative fashion stories featuring Carine Roitfeld’s gloriously diverse choice of models; a beautiful celebration of spring florals by Erik Madigan Heck and Leith Clark; and an ethereal woodland fantasy by Regan Cameron and Miranda Almond. For the fashion lovers, this issue promises not to disappoint, so I may be grabbing a copy.

What do you think of this cover? Will you be buying?
