The iconic Opium, now more au­da­cious, ad­dic­tive, and elec­tri­fy­ing.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty -

Why we love it: The first women’s fragrance in the mar­ket fea­tur­ing cof­fee-flo­ral ol­fac­tory notes, Yves Saint Lau­rent’s Black Opium builds upon the bold­ness of the orig­i­nal. Vanilla sweet­ens the ro­bust cof­fee ac­cord, while white jas­mine, ex­otic man­darin, and pink pep­per ac­cen­tu­ate its vi­va­cious tempo. Did you know? The leg­endary Ori­en­tal-themed launch for the orig­i­nal Opium back in 1977 was no tame af­fair. A tall ship, Pek­ing, was rented from South Street Sea­port Mu­seum for the oc­ca­sion, with au­thor Tru­man Capote at the helm. Throw in a 1,000lb bronze Bud­dha and you have one of the most deca­dent par­ties ever. De­sign file: An homage to the clas­sic, the fla­con is a spec­ta­cle of light and dark with a matt-black and di­a­mond-dust fin­ish. A soft pink glow at its core em­bod­ies the beau­ti­ful ten­sion that de­fines this scent.
