YSL – Black Opium

Black Opium is the latest YSL fragrance launch. It seems to be a fresh twist to the iconic 80’s Opium perfume. The look and feel is more grunge, highlighting the darker and mysterious side of the brand.The perfume and ad campaign stars British supermodel Edie Campbell shot by Daniel Wolfe.

The video does make you believe that the perfume is an opium and drives you to get up of your bed at around midnight and get it from the dealer, in this case a handsome model with a chiseled face. Only it looks more rock n roll!


The perfume comes in the bottle designed as the last editions of the Opium collection. The bottle is dark and decorated with sequins that give a glam rock look.

Notes : Coffee is the dominate scent.

Additional accords : pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli and cedar.

Black Opium is suppose to be the first ever perfume to blend fruity and floral notes with intense coffee aromas.

I love coffee and the smell of coffee so I might definitely try this. If you are a coffee lover, then you should too!
