I’m a perfume expert and there are lots of fragrances you should NEVER buy – Black Opium isn’t original, people hate it

IS Black Opium always at the top of your birthday wish list?

If you answered yes to that, then you might want to reconsider your perfume buying strategy, as fragrance expert Jus de Rose has revealed it was one of the most hated scents in a recent survey she conducted.

"Whatever you do, don’t buy these fragrances," she began her TikTok video.

"I asked my audience on Instagram what is their most hated fragrance and here are the results."

While Lancome's La Vie Est Belle topped the list, Black Opium by YSL was a close second.

"Also headache-inducing and lots said it was more juvenile," she admitted.

Instead, she recommends Carolina Herrera's Good Girl.

"It is mass appealing but less well known than Black Opium, has a little bit of coffee, but this is essentially an intoxicating almond, floral amber.

"And guys seem to really love this scent too."

If the coffee scent is what you are looking for, then she recommended trying Awake by Akro – calling it "intensely coffee rich with a little bit of sweetness".

As for La Vie Est Belle, she admitted she's also not a fan of the scent.

"It’s an overly sweet, headache-inducing scent that is super popular and frankly not original these days," she sighed.

Once again, she offered an alternative suggestion – Flowerbomb by Viktor + Rolf.
