Black Opium, a rebellious fragrance

Black Opium is a juice for all women today, both elegant and sophisticated while being urban and rebellious. Similar to an experimental juice, it is unlike any other.

It characterizes Yves Saint-Laurent’s love for risk taking. Black Opium flirts with the forbidden and takes us on a mystical journey to the frontier of the illegal.

Black Opium, a gourmet fragrance of the forbidden

Black Opium is the scent of all prohibitions. However, he is very attractive. It arises from a chiaroscuro association and appears as electrifying as a sip of caffeine. It must be said that coffee is really present in his recipe.

He is electrified by the spicy presence of pink berries. White flowers soften it all. Black Opium notably contains orange blossom and jasmine accompanied by a fusing pear. Vanilla reinforces the gluttony of the whole. Finally, Black Opium ends with the elegant depth of cedar and patchouli.

The electric and intoxicating vibration of Black Opium Intense

If Opium made the heyday of elegant and definitely trendy women in the 80s, its scented daughter Black Opium does not have to be ashamed as this pretty intoxicating floral coffee has continued to seduce since its release in 2014!
It must be said that with four talented perfumers to have bent over her cradle, the young lady Black Opium already had everything to please: solar and shimmering flowers, delicacies both sweet and sensual or even opulent woody depths worthy. of his famous “mother” of the 80s. What is more, carried by ambassadors as rock as charming, Edie Campbell and now Zoé Kravitz, Black Opium never ceases to intoxicate us with its surprising contrasts and constantly renewed in equally magnificent variations.

With Black Opium Intense, we could have expected a fire of woody sensuality, but the Yves Saint Laurent house preferred to leave room for doubt and play with the subtlety of densified hot-cold contrasts to come and seduce us even more. Released in January 2019, Black Opium Intense will follow the same path to glory as its elders while having a nice olfactory surprise …

Black Opium Intense blue absinthe for an unprecedented icy freshness

“A gourmet fruity oriental shot for a powerful and sensual trail at the heart of orange blossom and liquorice absolute.
Magnetic? Terribly… ”Yves Saint Laurent for Black Opium Intense.
The idea for this Black Opium Intense was therefore to play on the scorching coffee accord in order to make it even more radically opposed to the freshness of the head. And this is how perfumers Nathalie Lorson Olivier Cresp, Marie Salamagne and Honorine Blanc made the choice to start Black Opium Intense with a note of blue wormwood that would blow us its icy wind tinged with blackberry to make us shiver. At the heart, the atmosphere warms up thanks to the emblematic flowers of the Black Opium range, namely the opulent orange blossom and the beautiful jasmine. The coffee gets hot and directs us with its force towards intense base notes where sandalwood, liquorice and vanilla compete in heat to create an unforgettable and terribly sensual trail for the Black Opium Intense woman.
Black Opium Intense will therefore know how to lead the heat and cold to take us in opposite shivers towards an irresistible addiction.

YSL Black Opium is refreshed in an Eau de Toilette

Like any great self-respecting perfume, Black Opium exists both in the form of an Eau De Parfum and an Eau de Toilette. If the composition of these two fragrances remains substantially the same, the concentration of fragrant product is not identical.

Thus, Black Opium Eau de Toilette is more diluted than its predecessor and leaves behind a fresher and less tenacious sensation.

The clarity of Black Opium Eau de Toilette

L’Eau de Toilette Black Opium se caractérise par une extrême sensation de fraîcheur. Elle s’envole sur le souffle acidulé d’une mandarine verte électrisée d’un shot de cassis plus incisif.

Son démarrage s’adoucit ensuite au contact de fleurs moins capiteuses qu’autrefois. L’Eau de Toilette Black Opium délivre un souffle réconfortant semblable à celui d’un thé au jasmin.
