YSL’s Black Opium now in an eau de toilette
British supermodel Edie Campbell is the face of the new Black Opium eau de toilette by Yves Saint Laurent.
Nearly a year after the release of Black Opium, the luxury brand is reimagining its most addictive fragrance as an eau de toilette.
For this new blend, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté has selected a blend of tart blackcurrant and pear to join notes of citrus and green mandarin peel. Jasmine-scented tea and orange blossom then take over before giving way to the olfactory signature of the fragrance: coffee.
The coffee grains in this varation mix with creamy white musk and a blend of white woods, turning the floral coffee of the original Black Opium into a green coffee for the eau de toilette.
The overall design of the bottle remains unchanged, with the exception of pink gold reflections, recalling the nuance of the fragrance’s essence.
Black Opium Eau de Toilette will be available for purchase in France as of August 24, starting at €49 for a 30ml bottle.
