This week’s exclusive newsletter subscriber giveaway: YSL Black Opium + Starbucks True North Blend Coffee

 starbucks true north blend and YSL black opium

For fall 2018, the global coffee trend in beauty continues to grow. With a new generation who loves coffee and hanging out at Starbucks cafes, perfumers and makeup artists are drawing inspiration from the phenomenon. (I once sat in on a presentation by a trend forecasting company who credited Starbucks for being a major influence in popular culture – ranging from fashion to skincare and scent.)

YSL took this to heart when it launched its Black Opium fragrance a few years ago. It was the first modern coffee floral scent and it was an overnight sensation. It continues to be a top 10 scent around the world. That is because of the careful blend of ingredients:

  • Black coffee
  • Pink pepper
  • Orange blossom
  • Jasmine
  • Vanilla
  • Patchouli
  • Cedar

The fragrance was created by four top perfumers who collaborated on the project. They include: Nathalie Lorson, Marie Salamagne, Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc. You’ll notice the bottle is dark and decorated with a sequin finish for a glam rock effect.

Starbucks’ True North Blend is a very mild and smooth packaged coffee. It’s ideal for anyone who is trying coffee for the first time and wants a gentle, mild blend.

The Giveaway: I gave away a YSL Black Opium fragrance + Starbucks True North Blend Coffee to one lucky newsletter subscriber. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment below what is their favourite note in the fragrance. I’ll drewone name at random on September 26th from all those who commented below. Congrats to Sari O from Canada!!

    There are so many beautiful notes in this gorgeous YSL Black Opium fragrance, but I think my favourite note would have to be the vanilla as that in conjunction with the aroma of coffee is just divine!
