In 1977 Yves Saint Laurent introduces Opium: a groundbreaking perfume. A revolution in a flacon. A new idea of femininity: sultry, provocative, addictive. In 2014, the iconic Opium’s legacy and boldness continue to amaze: the French fashion house unveils Black Opium, reinventing addiction in a new, contemporary light, reshaping for the modern woman.
A modern, young and vibrant interpretation of addiction. Black Opium, a fragrance like a shot of adrenalin, the necessary energy for a life more and more intense.
To celebrate the festive season, Yves Saint Laurent offers a wild twist on a holiday classic: The iconic Black Opium flacon is now adorned with the wildest YSL Print: The feline sparkling Babycat. Just as bold and glamorous as its ambassador: Zoë Kravitz.
The new collector flacon houses the French Maison’s best-selling Black Opium original Eau de Parfum with its signature blend of black coffee, white flowers and creamy vanilla for a warming and sensual scent, created by Marie Salamagne, Nathalie Lorson, Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc. The one gift to put on your wish list or to spoil someone special this season.
Top: pear accord, mandarin essence
Heart: vanilla, orange blossom, white flowers
Base: black coffee accord, cedarwood essence, white musk, patchouli
A captivating floral gourmand scent, twisted with an overdose of black coffee, for a shot of adrenaline. Energy, sensuality, coupled with that unique YSL edge. The signature black coffee accord is paired with creamy vanilla, enriched by the softness of white flowers and orange blossom, against a base of patchouli and comforting white musk, for a women’s fragrance that bewitches with its trail.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Baby Cat belongs to this collection and comes in a black lacquered bottle with a bright red sequined animal print (with the pink color of the juice seen through the center of the glittering flacon). This collector’s edition reportedly represents a confident and daring woman who embodies the new spirit of the French Maison.
How to use:
For light intensity: spray in a cloud around your head and shoulders, let the fragrance fall gently around you.
For medium intensity: spray in a y-shape across your body, beginning at one shoulder and finishing at the other. If you are wearing jewellery it is a great alternative to spraying your neck.
For added intensity: apply perfume directly to your pulse points and / or hot spots (wrist, inner elbow and lower neck). Here the heat of your body will allow the fragrance to reveal its full trail. Include shoulders and back to intensify your perfume trail.
For the winter holiday season, Yves Saint Laurent prepared other collector’s editions of its best-selling perfumes in flacons decorated with animal prints (like Libre, Mon Paris…..) along with various gift sets and a make-up collection called ‘Dress Me Wild’.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Baby Cat is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum, at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Yves Saint Laurent.
