London Destination Inspired By Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
London Destination is the satisfying aroma of work mixed with play, part business trip, part vacation. Its beautiful, swirling blend of rich roasted coffee, creamy vanilla, and sweet pear will sweep you away to distant places where accomplishments are rewarded with accolades. To this core bouquet is added pink pepper, spicy patchouli, and soft jasmine, elevating the entire accord to an exotic place. Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium!
Time of day: any

London Destination has a unique smell and is definitely a unisex cologne. The smell is like many different smells that are good smelling. This stuff will last for two days on your body or clothes. Alexandria is really good about putting in the ingredients that are not cheap smelling at all and quality. I recommend this to all males and females.
Better then Black Opium, more soffter, i can wear more often than BO. Great job, thank you!
I definitely get some coffee, vanilla, and hints of patchouli right away; it's mellow and discreet after two sprays. Certainly works for men as well as women, there's nothing particular feminine about this beautiful scent. It's also slowly evolving as I wear it, hope that some of the licorice comes out more boldly in the dry down. This is an elegant work of art.
I have been looking for "vintage" opium perfume for years. The reformulation is just nowhere near the 80s version. Does this happen to smell like the original to anyone?
The bitterness of the coffee blends well with the sweetness of the pear and vanilla but it takes 10 minutes or so for the coffee to really come out on skin. While it's listed as "for women", it's really quite unisex. This is probably the most interesting coffee fragrance I've ever sampled and the addition of pear is what really makes it something special.
