THE BLACK OPIUM
Discover Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, a new glam fragrance filled with energy, essence and mystery. No emphasis is needed to prove that Black Opium is the icon of the modern trend. It is an additive gourmand with the following notes:
Top: Boysenberry and Blue Absinthe; a shot of adrenaline
Heart: Jasmine Sambac Absolute and Orange Blossom Absolute; to seduce
Base: Black Coffee, Liquorice, vanilla, and Sandalwood; for sweetness and sensuality
Black Opium uncapped flashes the liquorice tones of absinthe, which speaks delirium and danger, enticed by the boysenberry. The rich bouquet of flower laced in the Black Opium is dipped in a pool of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. The glorious mixture of both natural juiciness and the vinyl-like plastic creates a vibrant and effervescent contrast and colours. Even the assertive white flowers and the electrifying energy of the black coffee meets to give a sensual, addicting variation of a dark and light theme.
The Black Opium is crafted with the following ingredients: alcohol, water, benzyl alcohol, benzyl salicylate, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, hydroxycitronenellal, hexyl cinnamal, limonene, linalool geraniol, citronellol, citral, coumarin, benzyl benzoate, cinnamyl alcohol, methyl anthranilate, amyl cinnamal & additional colours.
With the specs of the Black Opium, i.e., having both natural and synthetic make, the natural make causes the smell to last long, with each note surfacing as time goes by. The Black Opium is a fragrance that deals with EXCESS, with is electrifying gourmand being calorie based, one’s desires are achieved with no consequences.
Although YSL has launched Black Opium Intense, which is far more luxurious than the Black Opium, given that its inspiration comes from the energy of the night and much emphasis is laid on the floral and fruity notes along with the neon radiance and the brand’s ever famous gourmand signature.
Spray black opium unto your skin, focus on the warmer areas of your body with the fragrance behind your neck, underneath your earlobes, onto the inside of your wrist, and the slim of your body. Alternatively, you can spray generous amounts in front of you and then walk forwards or walk into its mist, immersing yourself in the electrifying perfume.
