Mysterious, Dark, Hypnotic and Addictive. Black Opium Yves Saint Laurent is the fragrance I’m talking about. Black Opium is the rock’n’roll interpretation of the classic opium. Opium is a gourmand floral fragrance which opens with a strong coffee bean accord before developing with white flowers, vanilla, cedar and patchouli. It’s not just the scent. I love the bottle, the inspiration, the model (Edie Campbell), the campaign the whole story around Black Opium. Black Opium, as a woman who is elegant, stylish and with a piercing intelligence and languorous beauty. And that’s exactly how I feel, when I wear the fragrance.
