Black Opium is a true myth of perfumery. He was born in 1977 to an elegant, chic and intelligent woman. Its refinement through the ages until being revisited in 2014. Black Opium only accentuates the boyish and cheeky side of the first woman Yves Saint-Laurent. This perfume fits perfectly into the spirit of the times. It has a very rock ‘n’ roll side and flirts with the forbidden. It perfectly combines femininity with a more rebellious aspect and will suit your intrepid, sulphurous and passionate femininity perfectly.

Black opium, an essence that causes scandal

Black opium takes its source in 1977. Indeed, it is on this date that the perfumer of the house, Jean-Louis Sieuzac, in collaboration with Yves Saint-Laurent creates Opium. Quickly, this perfume made a lot of talk and even took the brand to scandal. In this case, what makes a lot of talk is its name. This one refers to an Asian drug, which is not to everyone’s liking. In some countries such as Saudi Arabia or China, it has even been withdrawn from sales because it would encourage the consumption of this illicit substance. Moreover, the slogan of the perfume could not be clearer: “Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, a perfume of dependence”. However, Yves Saint-Laurent assumes. After all, scandal is customary for this tormented personality and most often succeeded for him. Also, Opium will not escape the rule. It is clear that its substance must be addictive since, very quickly, many women tear it up. It even causes out of stock in France. Thus, in 2014, Yves Saint-Laurent chose to bring this legendary fragrance up to date and created a variation called Black Opium. Always so catchy, this one now displays a darker side, without being less feminine and refined. The work of the house Yves Saint-Laurent is then just as remarkable as during the first opus of the essence.

Yves Saint-Laurent gives us a dose of glam-rock caffeine

Black opium is a perfume entirely built on an effect of contrast between shadow and light. This characterful fragrance is truly seductive. With it, two facets are opposed. On the one hand, its bitterness comes from its black coffee beans. The latter then oppose the delicacy of the white flowers. Thus, sambac jasmine explodes from the top notes. In addition, the orange blossom illuminates the whole. Here we have the dominant olfactory notes. However, other tones are also present, more in the background. We find in particular the sweetness of pear, the crunch of pink berries, the voluptuousness of vanilla pods, the woody aspect of cedar and the tenacity of patchouli. Black opium is a mysterious fragrance that lacks nothing in character. Too, the muse chosen by Yves Saint-Laurent is totally in this image. She is played by Edie Campbell, dressed all in black, looking somewhat provocative. Her eyes are to die for and her rebellious look suits her perfectly. Like the bottle of Black Opium, the latter is both very feminine while remaining a bit tomboy. No need to resist; after all, what good is temptation if not to give in to it?
