What it is
Black Opium Eau de Parfum is the seductively intoxicating women's fragrance. The opening notes of adrenaline-rich coffee and the sweet sensuality of vanilla recline into the softness of white flowers for a young, modern scent.
What it does
In September of 2014 Yves Saint Laurent launches Black Opium, the new fragrance announced as a rock'n'roll interpretation of the classic that should highlight the dark, mysterious side of the YSL brand. Master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Marie Salamagne, in collaboration with Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc, developed the composition. Notes of coffee, present in large quantities, dominate the scent. Additional accords are pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli and cedar.
This seductive women's perfume is inspired by the edgy and daring woman. Emboldened by the strong scent of coffee, the sensuous ladies perfume captivates the senses with a sweet vanilla base and a burst of floral at the heart of the fragrance.
About the bottle: The perfume comes in the bottle designed as the last editions of the Opium collection. The bottle is dark and decorated with sequins that give a glam rock look.
