Black Opium perfume review

Fans of the original Opium will be disappointed with this latest addition. It has no DNA of the previous one. So keep in mind that it is by no means a flanker but a whole new scent.
I came across this one in my search for the perfect coffee scent as black opium was rumoured to be a strong coffee perfume. I have finished more than half the bottle but I still couldn't detect a coffee note. What I do get is a warm vanilla enveloped in a hint of patchouli and a light jasmine.
But coffee lovers do not despair. When my friend wore it, it smelled heavenly. Like a fluffy frothy cappuccino. so depends on body chemistry.
This is definitely a fall/winter scent. Im just disappointed that the coffee note didn't show up on my skin. Its a beautiful warm fragrance and reminds me of a few others like `la vista `belle and Bath and bodyworks cashmere glow.

 I do like the bottle. Its very edgy with a thick glass moulding.
All you lovers of gourmands, sweet, warm fragrances this bottle holds a treat for you.
So lets dream of cozy fall nights and crackling fireplaces.

Top Notes: pink pepper, orange blossom, pear
Middle Notes: coffee, Jasmine, bitter orange, Licorice
Base Notes: Vanilla, patchouli, cedar, cashmere wood
MOOD: Date night. casual cafes winter, fall.
