Black Opium Intense, the electric and astonishing night of Yves Saint Laurent and Zoé Kravitz
The least that we can about the perfumed universes of the Yves Saint Laurent house is that they are definitely apart between refined elegance and the iconic master’s taste for sensuality and a few well-conducted provocations. . Like the master who posed nude for the advertisement for Pour Homme in 1971, Yves Saint Laurent women’s perfumes do not compromise on their originality and the so incredible Opium will come to prove it to us in 1977.
However, it took daring at home to dare to compete with this mythical oriental flask, so loved by some and so disparaged by others … But Black Opium has conquered its 2014 audience with its sweet smokes of woody coffee and its solar and shimmering flowers. Better, it has never ceased to be reborn in pretty floral notes with Black Opium Floral Shock or in airy notes for Black Opium Eau de Toilette. And in 2019, Black Opium will return again to take us into its nocturnal universe with the Black Opium Intense bottle!
Once again worn by its sublime ambassador Zoé Kravitz, Black Opium Intense will offer even more striking contrasts between heat and freshness, an even more electric modernity all in blue dressed between its glittery midnight blue bottle and the bluish world of its beautiful muse.
A quartet of emblematic perfumers for a Black Opium Intense stunning with olfactory surprises!
It is rather rare to find in perfumery teams of perfumers who endure, and yet Olivier Cresp, Marie Salamagne, Honorine Blanc and Nahtalie Lorson will once again write together the beautiful score of this Black Opium Intense.
More than ever, Black Opium Intense will magnify opposites by pushing freshness to extremes thanks to a new touch of blue absinthe which will bring to the perfume an almost polar freshness as its pretty raw material evokes ice. What’s more, this absinthe will join the original starting notes of Black Opium built around the fruity freshness of wild blackberries. At the heart, orange blossom and jasmine form a marriage of solar notes where luminosity and femininity are intense. A femininity which nevertheless will pass to the dark side of its strength by plunging into the delights of the depths of sandalwood, vanilla and of course coffee.
