The Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is a fragrance that highlights the dark side of the brand, having a heavy influence of coffee with beautiful floral accords in its notes.
The Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is a perfume for women, that has a lovely blend of both strong notes with pleasant floral scents. Wearing this perfume makes you feel confident. The fragrance opens with the strongly lingering notes of the main ingredient, coffee, which is complemented by the fresh smells from Black Currant, fruity Pears, Green Mandarin bark and fresh citrus essences. The heart notes then get a push from Jasmine Tea, Orange Blossoms and, obviously more coffee. It is then balanced out as the perfume begins to dry down, with warm notes of Amber and Whitewood. This perfume comes in a glamorous black translucent glass flacon with pink sequin dots scattered around it. This perfume was created by master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Marie Salamagne in collaboration with Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc. This is a perfume a woman can wear anytime she wants, anywhere she wants, because she doesn't need an occasion to shine.
