In September last year Yves Saint Laurent launches Black Opium, the new fragrance announced as a rock’n’roll interpretation of the classic that should highlight the dark, mysterious side of the YSL brand. Now, nearly year later, luxury brand launches a new edition, Black Opium Eau de Toilette that comes at the end of August 2015.
The new version of the fragrance arrives in the same flacon form – the bottle is dark and decorated with sequins that give a glam rock look.
The key note remains the same – coffee, which is this time combined with fresh, greener shades of flowers, tea and fruit. The perfume version of the fragrance highlights a blend of flowers and coffee, while the new version EDT accentuates the green character of coffee.
Black Opium Eau de Toilette starts with fruity notes of tart and refreshing black currant combined with pear zest, citruses and green mandarin bark. The heart incorporates the key ingredient – coffee, which becomes fresher with jasmine tea notes and luminous sweet orange blossom. It highlights sensuality with white musk and white wood which subtly support the flowers and fruit of the composition.
The face of the perfume’s campaign is British model Edie Campbell, shot by Daniel Wolfe. The fragrance will be available from August 24, 2015, as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
