It’s rare to find a team of perfumers who continue their work, and Olivier Cresp, Marie Salamagne, Honorine Blanc and Nahtalie Lorson again create the beautiful fragrance of this Black Opium Intense.More than ever Black Opium Intense will expand opposites, moving to extreme freshness thanks to a new blue absinthe that will bring perfumes to almost polar freshness, because its pretty raw material evokes ice. What’s more, this absinthe will join the original notes of Black Opium built around the fruity freshness of wild blackberry. In the heart of the orange blossom and jasmine create a marriage with sun notes, in which brightness and femininity are intense. Femininity, which, however, will go from the dark side of its strength, immersed in the delights of the depths of sandalwood, vanilla and coffee.

Let’s be clear, Opium is the scented phenomenon of the 80s. Burning, opulent, its flowers as feminine as very present have left nobody indifferent, we love it or we hate it but Opium remains. For Black Opium in 2014, Yves Saint Laurent dressed his Asian flask with modern scented scrolls and a gourmet and woody coffee. Yet Opium’s descendant has lost none of its charm and the provocative sensuality of its roots, even if the charm is dressed in glitter and absolute modernity. For Black Opium Intense, we will rediscover the beautiful Zoe Kravitz who will carry us once again in a world tinged with urban landscapes and sensual, electric, haunting nighttime looks. For Black Opium Intense the iconic bottle will be dressed in bluish colors as sensual as divinely sequined and feminine.
