The feminine perfume Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent reveals a play of contrasts between white flowers and coffee beans through its scent. In creating Black Opium, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty broke new ground in perfumery with a bold coffee accord; an ingredient that has never been used in such high quantity in a feminine fragrance. The pulse of electrifying black coffee meets the assertive femininity of the most precious white flowers, sampaguita and orange blossom absolute, melding with incredibly addictive notes of vanilla and wood.
Addictive and daring, the Black Opium woman embodies the young and daring spirit of Yves Saint Laurent. Empowered, charismatic and self-assured, she expresses a glamorous yet impertinent femininity. Energized by her scent, she dares to live the night to the fullest and achieve her goals. Queen of the city nights, she is always looking for new experiences and nothing will stop her.
There is something intensely urban and festive about the Black Opium bottle, as if it were designed for a night of endless partying.
