Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is an "Eau de Toilette" belonging to the Oriental Floral family for women. This is a reformulation of the original fragrance, which keeps alive its trail and essence, and this time lightens and refreshes it, giving it a younger and more casual tone. This fragrance was launched in 2009, but its original version was born in 1977. It had to be withdrawn from sale for health reasons, as too high doses of some of its components were used, and also due to the environmental extinction of Mysore sandalwood, one of its protagonists. Opium is an outrageous floral fusion, bold, powerful and intoxicating, is one of the most emblematic and iconic women's fragrances in history, and that, after four decades, continues to exude exclusivity and reap a loyal entourage of admirers. Its olfactory pyramid begins with a particular accord of mandarin, orange pepper, cinnamon and chili pepper, a vibrant fusion, which opens the doors to a floral heart, a bouquet of jasmine, carnation, ylang-ylang and rose, an ultra-feminine bouquet, with powerful seductive effects. Finally, its trail concludes with subtlety, thanks to benzoin, opoponac patchouli and a sweet touch of vanilla.
